    Super Cub LP Engine Cut off

    I need some help,

    I have a super cub LP with floats and I have replaced the engine, battery, and ESC/receiver and I still get the engine cut-off at full throttle. Very confusing. Can anyone help with this?
    I ran the engine without the prop and I didn't seem to have the problem before I put the plane all back together. After assembly I have the problem with the engine cut of just at the point of full throttle. I wonder if it could be the larger prop they supply with the float set.

    RE: Super Cub LP Engine Cut off

    What type of motor, esc and battery did you replace the originals with?
    The size and pitch of the prop determines how many amps the motor will draw. If it exceeds the rated capacity of the  esc , the esc will shut down the motor. and if it exceeds the rated capacity of the motor ,the motor will burn out..
    Are you sure it's just the motor stopping or do you also loose control of the elevators,rudder?

    Thank you for responding.

    I replaced everything with the factory equip'mt.

    The rudder, elevator work fine. Come to find out the larger prop that comes with the float kit seems to be the culpret. The Hobbie Zone folks said to just put the standard prop back on and that should solve the problem. I will let you know after a test flight.

    I really appreciate your input.
