Well here - let me make it easy for you.

Hacker A30-10xl v3
4s 2200
50-60a ESC with an external 5v BEC unless you can find an ESC with 5-6v BEC built in.
New servos too because the increased speed/airflow will kill the stockers quick.

Then get ready to smile.

I have that exact setup, and it an absolute blast to fly. It hovers at 1/2 throttle.

Cheers, Paul..
Easiest/cheapest way to pick up a bit of speed while still maintaining good 3D flight is to change the stock 12x4 Eflite prop with an APC 11x5.5 Electric prop.

The only thing you need to do with this prop (other than balancing it) is to add a prop washer to the front, under the prop nut (any washer with ~8mm hole, 1.5-2mm thick will work fine).

The APC prop is a lot more eff and is much smoother/quieter. Runtimes and max amp draw is not significantly diff (actually, slightly better than the stock prop).

I recommend you try this prop before changing out the stock 3s power system.

I too have had very good luck with the APC 11x5.5 i like it better than the APC 12x6
