The Stock motor is 3200kv. A 3600-3700kv motor would be considered "semi Hot" for 4s,( Velocity 2860-2700 or MEGA 16/35/1) and give you a bit more power (in the stock fan).

the E-Flite rotor are good, but they do NOT come balanced from the factory.
Put your rotor on a prop balancer to see...then static balance it, and use the "clock" method to get as smooth as you can by rotating the 45* then running it up slowly (at the same rpm every time) and feel for the smoothest position.
Do this at 3s power and low rpms only.

We can also assemble and Dynamically balance any (new) setup for you.

I don't have the E-Flite 70mm EDF's yet. You can send me a new one, or the Wemotec Minifan or HET 6904 is a good a choice.

Make yourself a mylar thrust Tube that's 2.1" dia at the outlet for low cost added speed.
The stock foam outlet is 2 3/8" is tooo big for top end speed, but fine if it's just high thrust that you want
