Since you're looking at Hobby City as source, Turnigy 2213-22
and 18A Turnigy ESC
is what I have in mine with 1300 mAH 3S lipos spinning an APC 10x5E prop. A GWS 10x6DD is also a good prop, but I needed a tiny bit more weight up front so went with the heavier APC. I gouged out the battery bay so the pack could slide almost to the firewall for proper balance.
Power is better than scale, but not unlimited vertical if that is what you are desiring. You could go to the slightly hotter Turnigy 2213-20
or even one of the 2217 longer stator models if you desire more get up and go (with the 25A Turnigy Plush ESC). I get about 15+ minutes of flight time depending on flying style with a new healthy pack.
