Yes, that will reduce the stall speed, along with the much lighter gear and motor you're using.

I think my stall speed worked out to something like 16-18 mph with the flat wing, so everything else had to be bumped up. Top speed would have been about 40 mph with the gear I had. Well the original purpose was combat R/C, so, not surprising.

I think what you're doing makes a lot of sense, for fun park flying -- probably closer to what I should have done, as well.
