My new Ardupilot Quadrotor project

hi everybody, this is my first quadrotor project and I was hoping to get some help

What I am planning to use:
- ArduPilot Mega + IMU
- Turnigy 2217 20turn 860kv 22A motor
- TURNIGY Basic 25A v3.1 Speed Controller
- ZIPPY Flightmax 4400mAh 3S1P 15C battery
- custom frame that weights about 600 grams
I am expecting the total weight including batteries and all will be around 1~1.25 kilos

My questions:
- Where to order good propellers 1045 sets (cw and ccw pairs) ?
- Will the fours 2217 motors be able to lift the drone ?
- What are my options concerning motors/ESCs/propellers if I want to lift Real Heavy stuff, say like 3-4 kilos ?

any other suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks

For USA, montorc has a decent price on 10x4.7 props

Can't say about anything else other than I'm using 2217's + Basic 25A on a ~600gram quad and it works.
