What's a good motor/ESC/batt/prop combo for the NAN Orion?

In folks' humble opinion, what is a good motor, ESC, battery, and prop combo for the NAN Orion? Please note I'm looking for high quality in all components, plus easy fit and high performance for good climb rate. Can the AUW of this bird be brought down to 45 oz's, and is lighter and lightest actually a good thing for this ship when thermaling? I know ballast could be added if needed for lift and wind conditions.
There are plenty of better pure ALES ships out there, but I'd like to use one of this size (2.4 meters) just for some fun as well as size convenience.

Yous should add some dimensions, not everyone who knows to evaluate a propulsion knows the model and the limitations of the fuselage nose diameter or other such details.
Yep, googling is free, but time is not

If they write in that thread about MVVS, then the GliderDrive family are the best bang for the bucks.
Please, don't speculate they are too cheap to be trusted, the dedicated threads and performance in competitions speaks high enough about them.

I would suggest an 1105/2.5Y/6.7 if you want a very light setup, or an 1110/1Y/6.7 for a more "sporty" setup at a slight weight penalty. It sounds like you would enjoy having the extra power, and the Orion still thermals well.

Good luck,
Lenny
