I'm running a slightly different set-up because it's what I have:
Hacker A10-13L w/ 8043
ZTW 12 A ESC
Hitec HS-65 on ailerons
Hitec 5045 on elevator and rudder
3S 350 mah and 450 mah Sky LiPo and Gens Ace packs
On this size plane I won't be using 3S any more, and here's why: it's difficult to find the right size 3S packs. To get the same weight as the recommended 2S packs, you need about 3S 300-350. These are more expensive than 2S 450 (there are lots of those on the market) and about the only high-C ones available are Thunder Power and they are very expensive.
My next RCF/Twisted plane will get the recommended power system for sure. The Twisted 2204-1800 is a very impressive little motor!
It will be a rocket on the Hacker and 3s, while waiting for the crack yak to come out I swapped the 2204-1800 and 2s for the hacker a10-13l 3s on my 3DHS 34 Edge and it did not have the same power as the Hacker, but the CY is going to be alot lighter than my 3dhs 34" edge
