Hi Double Da,
Welcome to the Forum!
I do not think that actuators will work in Acrobipe, it is just too heavy.
I am positive that GB03 6mm gearbox is much too weak in this application.
There are simple FF styro models like Airtaxi (?) , smaller, upper wing models that will be much more suitable for Plantraco system. Acrobipe is IMHO too hefty.
Please check my previous posts about my set up. I believe that Acrobipe with 2cell 340 Kokam and GWS 50 will fly fine on 3x2 prop indoors, 3x3 prop is much more efficient and rather good outdoors.
Surely small outrunner wil power this model just fine but small, 12mm Feigao motor fits just right under canopy without any problems with mouts etc - just a little of 5 min epoxy will do the job (KISS rule). Make sure to add fair amount of right and down thrust.
Have fun,
Janusz
