4 x HiTech 7955-TGs
Castle Ice 100 ESC
Hyperion 6s 5000
Castle Ice BEC pro with Rx Pack (Thunder Power 2s 1350mAh 25C)
Spektrum AR7010 Rx
Spektrum TM1000
You may want to ditch the redundant 2s rx pack. I can feel the difference on a few oz when I go from 6s5000 packs to 6s4000's. Using the a50-12L and run xoar 20x10, 19x10 if hot out. Good pullout but not ballistic. Hovers and harriers are super easy at this weight. If you fly in hot climate you may want the bigger engine to manage temps. I usually have to wait about 10 minutes between flights with the a50 if it is warmer than 65 -70 degrees out.
