My fave budget setup for sp400 stuff is the $14 gws geared motor with a blue arrow 15A lipo esc for $13 on $18 common sense 3s 1250 batts.

If you spend 5 minutes to retime the motor, you will have a setup that will turn a gws 11x7 prop at 5200 rpm at only 7.5 amps and 79 watts getting 21 oz thrust.

I use this setup on all sort of planes with excellent results and very long motor life.

Not bad at all for $45.
