40 size trainer glow to electric conversion

I just ordered a
NitroModel Low-Wing Super Aerobatic Trainer 40 - 65" Airplane and I need some recommendation on motor/esc combo. I plan to use my trusty 4S-4000mAh battery. I'm thinking of the MonsterPower 46 (670kv) Motor motor but not so sure about the ESC. Would the Volcano Series 80A Brushless ESC be good? Anyone has experienced with this motor/esc combo? I also want to re-use this motor/esc combo in the CMP Cessna Skylane 182 50 -65" converted to electric. I've been following that thread Thanks a bunch guys....

The motor selection is fine ... a motor of that size and KV is just nice for 4S, you can probably turn a 14x7 prop. Get an 80A ESC with a built in UBEC so you need not bother about carrying a RX pack. Something like the Turnigy or the DualSky is great. Enjoy the conversion!
