I suppose thats an ok model, but you are going to have to go light. That battery and ESC are monsters, overkill for this plane. I would use a 2s 500 and a 10amp ESC. Make sure you keep the build ultra light and she should fly great.

Shure, but i was planning to fly it outdoors too, so i will use a 3s lipo. I have some 800 mah 2s lipos to use it.
the main problem is that im looking for products in DE warehouse, and there not a lot of products availeble.
is there any problem with the use of an 10a esc? even with 20C lipos?

thnks for the reply

dont know how good them planes are but im sure you can use a 3s 800 or even a 1000 mah battery . the 3d plane i have is about the same weght and you want to keep it light as possible.

10 might not be enough it says 18a so i would stick with that or you could got 25a if you have a spare one . on my 3d plane it said to use 20a but i had a spare 30a and it was about the same in weght , i also shorten the wires if there to long saves on weght.

A 10A ESC will be fine for 3 cell use.

There's plenty of info in these threads:

You should try and keep your posts on the thread of the aircraft you're questioning. you will mostly deal with people who have and fly that aircraft and they will be able to help you better.
