Question
Ford Flivver Electrical Power

I just ordered by Ford Flivver small glo 40 size ARF which is a special running now at Dymond Modelsports. While I expect to use a RCV 58CD on another plane now (bad intention?), I welcome any suggestions for selecting an electric power for this size Flivver.

Here are Dymond's recommendations for 3 flights 8 minutes each or one long flight approx 25 min:
Motor Gunther 30/3
Speed controller 60 A
5 mm clamp on propeller adapter with 40 mm aluminum spinner
Aluminum motor mount with cooling fins
Propeller 11 x 5.5
Battery 3S2P 7000 mah

I do not want to use a receiver battery, so I will need to get an ultimate BEC which can be wired in parallel with the speed controller and provides the power for the receiver.

Also, I am interested in all tips, including from those who have built and flow the Ford Flivver large glo 60 size ARF, which is no longer available from Dymond.

Given no replies here in one week, I moved this topic to Power Systems hoping for a response there.
