No need, The Gee Bee uses the same config as the B3D so just drop it in and go!
make sure you place it correctly (aft of the Normal Sbach RX location) so the CG is right.

Yep almost as much power, however the characteristics are different. The 3000kv and 5030 is more responsive having quicker acceleration and holds power/speed better in high G turns and verticals.
The 2300+5043 has a higher top speed but bleeds speed in high G.
Vertical is unlimited on both with a nod to the 3000 for the instant punch acceleration out of a hover. However both do accelerate on te way up to a dot.

I fly in a very tight space so I prefer the 3000kv. If I had a 600ft+ area I'd probably use the 2300+5043 for the top speed increase. Just make the turns more sweeping and manage the energy.
