I got a Parkzone Super Decathlon (foam Plane) The total flying weight is about 16 oz acording to the manufacture.

The ESC is blown up, this one came with a Brushed motor, and Nimh pack.

It was give to me.

And I'm wanting something to learn to fly planes on, so I went looking for some parts.

Here is what I plan to put in it, and wanted to see if it's a pretty good choice. Also I will use this same stuff in the next one, if I trash this plane.

Brushless Motor.....$11.70 X2 $23.40

Prop........$0.75 X2 $1.50
http://www.hobbypartz.com/60p-dyp-1002-propeller.html

ESC.........$13.80 X 2 $27.60

MG Servos............$7.70 X4 $30.80

Lipo Charger......$23.70

Lipo Battery.....$7.25 X2 $14.50
http://www.hobbypartz.com/83p-1000mah-3s1p-111-20c.html

Never mind the charger, and the extra stuff. I'm thinking of getting an extra motor, extra esc, extra servos. I hope the lipo will be good enough. I was going to get a 1800mah but it's a little to large, and I want to keep the weight to a minum. Also the prop that came on this plane is a 8X4 so I figured maybe it would work with this size brushless motor with out over heating the motor, or esc, or lipo.

I would say its the best time to upgrade to Brushless system, however make sure you get really good electronics as later when you are done with you training you could simply purchase a kit plane and reuse your electronics.

I would say the best choice is to go for a bundle package which is Servo's, ESC, Motor and maybe more

This could do up to 22oz which is 500 Grams
, in your case you need 16 460 Grams

By the way don't forget there are other stronger motors which have more power for other planes, i wouldnt recommend it on your Parkzone Super but just to give you an idea take a look

Thanks, I have a JR 6102 (fm radio) with 6ch jr micro rx, and a Futaba 8U with full size rx. They are pretty good. I'm not going to use my stock tramsmitter and rx that came in the parkzone. Might use that stuff in a scratch build plane sometime.

I can't comment on your choices because I know nothing about the plane but check the weights of the upgrade components compared to the originals. Making the plane heavier should be no problem if you have enough power but you have to keep the center of gravity the same. Shifting the battery location or changing to a larger or smaller battery is one way to do that.

I can't seem to find the specks on the weight of the motor, or the nimh pack, esc, or servos. And I doubt that the weight of the plane it self would be listed without the elsctronics.

I do know it weights about 16oz rtf but that is for one with a gear box and one with a brushless motor.

If you do not have a scale take it to the Post Office and weigh it there. I do not know what country you are in but many US POs have a free public scale.

I live in North Caolina USA, but hawling a plane on a motor scooter would be lots of fun.

Just buy holding the parts, the motor, esc, servos, and rx, ect weight at least three time the weight of the plane alone. I'm guessing the plane weighs in at about 4 oz's and the rest of the electronics about 12oz's.
