That store doesn't have exactly the setup you'd need, but it's possible to get close enough.

The typical motor for the FT Flyer is a 24g "Blue Wonder" style motor. RCBazaar doesn't have one, but this is fairly close in terms of size and thrust:

You'll need a roughly 12A ESC. This should be fine:

You also need 2 9g servos, like these:
http://www.rcbazaar.com/product.aspx?productid=794

Do you have a radio system? I have no idea how well this radio would work, but it's probably good enough to start with:
http://www.rcbazaar.com/product.aspx?productid=2011

That site does have Graupner radios, which are quite good - Flite Test uses them now.

These props should work OK:
http://www.rcbazaar.com/product.aspx?productid=323

Finally, this battery is in about the right size category for a Flyer:
http://www.rcbazaar.com/product.aspx?productid=2461

One problem I see is that your ESC has a T-style connector and this battery has a JST Adapter. You can cut off the T-plug from the ESC and replace it with a JST from here:
http://www.rcbazaar.com/product.aspx?productid=1336

JSTs don't get soldered on, they get crimped onto the wires, so that will save you some soldering. But be careful when you put on the connectors - look at some YouTube videos first to see how it's done.

Do keep an eye on how heavy your plane is. I don't know what kind of foam you can get in India, but you want to make sure your weight is right about where it's listed on the Flite Test plans to make sure it flies well.

Good luck with the build!
