4g6 refreash.... My first CP is finally getting tired; advice needed

As most of you know my first CP helicopter was my beloved 4G6. I have flown the hell out of it, crashed more times than I can count, and it has been a fantastic little heli with many hundreds of flights on it.

Well... She is just tired and the time has come to refreash and upgrade her to her former glory.

I need a new main motor, and would like to upgrade to something with more power since I am now doing basic 3D.

I would really like to go flybarless so it matches the rest of my fleet.

The servo set is brand new, and I have already replaced all of the bearings, and the entire tail section is brand new, but I would like to get some of the upgraded tail pieces.

I have not really been keeping up with the new developments on the 4g6 as I have been going though a divorce and have not had time. I really could use a good rebuild project, and I was hoping there would be one or two fellow 4g6 nuts out there that would help guide me a bit so I can buy some parts today and do the rebuild this weekend.

What 3 axis reciever should I get? I have 2801Pro TX's with the 2.2 firmware

What motor? What lipos? Should I jump to 2S?

What flybarless head?

Suggestions on the main rotors? Stock still the best? Tail rotors?

Many Many thanks in advance to you all.
