FYI I went ahead and ordered one too. I'll start building within days of arrival and will upload pics to share. I went with a different motor setup than you did, so we'll see how it goes. I don't think I need nearly as much power as you have, this is going to be a floater, not a racer.

Im going to use this motor:
Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 2830-1130kv Brushless Outrunner Motor
With this spinner:
Folding Propeller Assembly 10x6 (Alloy/Hub Spinner)

The motor is a little less powerful than yours, so I downsized the prop pitch just a bit. I'm also going with a 30A esc and MG servos. I'll be less weight on the engine and ESC, but gain a few grams on the servos. I appreciate your pictures as I ponder the install.

As an experiment I'm also going to use primarily HK parts. Just to play around. It'll be fun to compare how the HK stuff works for me compared to the Hitec things I'm using in my more expesive but more demanding 3D planes.
