Need help with a plane choice

does anyone know what would be a tough, EPP foamy that would run well on these components? i also need a prop suggestion. if the motor is too low of a kv i can get a different one. (Turnigy 80g Park480 1020 kv)
Power 15 950 kv, parkzone version
30 amp ESC
two metal gear servos
two nylon servos (smaller than the metal gears)
Y-harness
AR600 RX
3S 2200 mAh 25C lipos

i was looking at the telink 44" extra slick or 44" edge 540, would those work?

At 152g the Power 15 would be heavy for the Telink IMO. The Park480 would be more suitable in terms of weight, I can't speak to the 480's performance.

The Power 15 could go into a 58" Hacker Super Zoom XXL, but you'd want to prop it to at least 450 watts so a 40A-45A ESC would be recommended. If you have the make/model of servo's you have that would help.

i was also looking at the HK 65g Turnigy Outrunner , its a 1450 kv. i think a 10x3 prop would work.

450 watts and 45 amp ESC? coincidence or do you get amps by dividing watts by 10?

10 would be the voltage. Amps = Watts/Volts. It's a rough calculation assuming a 3S battery.
