Powertrain:

Motor:
himax ha2025-4200 w/horst 4:1 gearbox
Propeller:
TF or Rev-Up 9x5

Notes:

This is an older model that I took about 3 years to find. Had to find a horst gearbox, but now have one so it's just a matter of mating a brushless motor to the gearbox. The kit is missing the original propeller so something will need to be worked out there as well.

RC Groups Review: http://www.rcgroups.com/articles/ezonemag/2001/jun/sparrow/sparrow.htm

In the day, guys were flying with 9x6 props. Came with about a 91/2-10x6 and 250 or 300 speed brushed motor depending on the kit.

Other power setups:
I found the best power option was a 5-1 gearbox (MPJet BB) 9x6 APC SF prop and a speed 300 motor

The gear is a lamination of 3 parts, one groved piece of wood, one piece of wire and one piece of thin ply. By adding a lamination of carbon fiber (either sheet or tow) to the gear lamination during construction the gear gains more than enough strength for all but the hardest of landings. Another very good up grade is to change the tires to light foam wheels.
