Default Speed 480 To Brushless Inrunner

Greeting From North Carolina:
I Have A Hobbyzone Super Cub, I Want To Replace The Brushed Can Motor For A Inrunner So I Can Keep The Gearbox. The Prop Is A 10 X 8 Or 10 X 4, I Don't Want A Speed Demon, Just Nice Relaxed Flying With Desent Flight Times. I Know I Need A New Brushless ESC, But What Amp. What Cell Lipos 2 Or 3, What Capacity, C Rating? Any Recomendations Folks?

Hi again Puff,
the 480 can motor is about a 100 watt motor. As long as you already have had Electrify recommended, take a look at their Ammo inrunner motors. I have a couple and they are great.

If you know the Kv of the stock motor, just replace it with a 28mm brushless motor of similar Kv... otherwise the gear ratio won't suit the stock prop.
