It uses a brushed motor and ESC, you can get brushless, but only if your willing to spend another $70. I would search it for a more detailed explanation though.

All regards,

The name above Calvin

I have one and use a Eflite 450 Outrunner in it. Flies just the way I like it! It's a nice flying plane.

I havent decided yet
you will probably want to pitch the stock power system. it doesnt produce enough thrust for flying from grass and is marginal for flying from a very long smooth surface. a brushless motor from 950-1200kv that can handle about 18amps on 3s lipos will get you very close to what you need. maybe a 9x6 prop for the lower kv motors and 9x4 for the higher. enjoy

thanks...looks like 100-150$ to have a great setup....i'm all in favor of more power...its nice to know its there if you nee it...hehe...

is the 450BL the best as far as power vs size vs price??? i mean if there is a more powerful one for another 20-30$....you know what i mean? one that will fit...

thanks again.

personally, i would recommend the park 480 1020kv as it will handle higher power and more importantly, it has a higher kv rating. a 9x6 prop should pull around 20amps and give great performance. this plane will be limited on prop diameter due to the landing gear clearance so about the only way to get more power is with a steeper pitched prop and higher kv motor.
