figure out how much it will weigh when its finished and then find a motor/pack that will give you about 1.5-2 power to weight and you will be good.

The servos are fine and were recommended to me by somebody I trust on such things. The Axi-2814 motor is a little heavy, but might work ok. The Axi-2808 has been used by others. The ESC probably has enough motor-amp capacity, but its BEC may be too small to drive four of those strong servos. The battery is severely lacking. You need to be looking at least TP2100's or bigger for those motors. That receiver could be used... but I'd suggest the JR R610UL instead. Half the weight. I used Robart 1/2a hinge points in my Kat35. Use plenty of them. I suggest 5 or 6 per aileron, 6 for the elevator (3 on each side) and 5 or 6 for the rudder (3 or 4 on top and two below the stab).

Also check the MF-vs-Kat35 thread for other suggestions.
