Default Supercub Brushless conversion

Hello to all,Does any one know of a brushless motor that will bolt right to the factory motor mount on a Hobbyzone Supercub. I know that the factory electrics wont work with a BL motor. I'll be using my new DX6. Thanks!

I would be curious to hear the answer to this question as well. I am thinking about adding aelerons to mine and since I will be jacking with stuff anyways would a motor upgrade be worthwhile? I know my SuperCub likes to climb on its own when i have the factory motor at full speed. I couldnt imaging having much more wind going across those wings. I would imagine it would just pull it straight up? I am not famiar with predicting flight chartoristics tho. I am anxious to hear the answer to this as well...

Thanks for your reply, I was trying to avoid having to go that route....I'm concerned about thrust angles and such.

Charles,
all the angles stay stock. If you look at the firewall and the base of the gearbox all of your angles are right there. I am still using this mount today very strong and I dont worry about angles. Take care and enjoy the brushless motor when you get it all figures out.

Goodluck and let me know if you need any other help. The LHS should have nylon spacers available too.
