What engine should I get for my x8?

So, I am planning to buy a skywalker x8 with fpv etc. But I don't really know what I should buy as parts. I had used the E calc calculator, but I don't think that those results were correct.

So what I wanted to buy was
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ner_Motor.html
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ontroller.html
And that with a 12x8 prop.

But then I read on the forum that it would be underpowered and would not fly good. I will use 2x8000mah 10c batteries in parallel. On the page of the engine they tested it with a 4s and 5s but the engine page als sais that it works with 5/7s so I don't really know... What should I get according to you guys. I wan't to fly like an hour or more.

Maybe I could also take a 3542 800kv with 60A esc and 12x8 or 12x6.5 prop?
