Jknuth,
Be careful, speed is not your friend when trying to learn.
The brushless motor is more than twice as fast as the stock motor and will get you into orientation problems just that much faster.
The best setup for the control horns for a first time flyer like you is: control rods closest to the center on the servo and farthest out from the root on the controlhorns.
It is deceiving, but an airplane like the Gamma needs very little deflection in the control surfaces to fly well.
If you are indeed going to go brushless then Stay with a 2s battery. That will help.
When you get in the air try to gain altitude so that you can have some space to make mistakes (3 mistakes high, as they say).
Go to the beginning training area here on the forums.

You'll learn a lot.
