How bout this zagi setup?

Okay, I read a couple books and now know enough to be dangerous.

In my quest to fine a reasonably priced hop up for the Zagi I have put together a list of what I am thinking of doing now...the push/pull config is still leaving me very much desiring an improvement in climb, and I wouldn't recommend it to others...

Being a poor student and modeling don't mix well...especially when looking at hop-ups...brushless setups are out of my reach.

Here is what I am looking at...not sure on some things, so please make any recommendations/suggestions.

MOTOR:
Kyosho Endoplasma 16x2 ($19.99)...adjust timing to last tic mark appropriate way for reverse running.

PROP:
Looking at 3
a. Cox 3 blade pusher: 5x3.5
b. Zinger pusher: 7x4
c. Zinger pusher: 8x4
(I know I have acces to these locally for replacement)

BATTERY:
7-8Cell RC-3000Nimh or the new Sanyo 2600 Nicad in 7-8 Cell.
System till be drawing in the area of 30-40A as far as I can tell, so probably the Nicads.

May try 10 cells...but really don't want to change the brushes and have the arm. turned that often from what I read.

ESC:
Great Planes 50a ESC

ZAGI MODS:
Take an additional 2" off each wing tip for a total of 4" removed.
(I know I should have gotten a razor for what I wanted, but this is what I have now)

My thanks in advance for any recommendations you guys can give on the specific setup.
