Up until now I've just ordered the recommended equipment from 3dhs along with the plane (the two 48" epp planes - yak and extra). However this will be my first "nice" airplane and I'd like to put the best in it. From what I remember having kept up with this thread for a while I think the best is:
- Motrolfly something or other motor, on 4S, with a 14x7.
- hitec 5085 servos
I'm thinking I'll throw the Castle Creations ICE 75 Lite ESC and the DUB-672 Super Strength Servo Arms in with the slick order from 3dhs, and worry about the motrolfly and servos later. Or are there better choices for those as well?
The Motrofly 3615-750 is what you're looking for. It's perfect on 4s with a 14x7 prop.
As for servos - yes, the 5085's will be awesome. I'm running the 85's and they are fine but I'll eventually upgrade to the 5085's. There are other servo choices out there but IMHO there's no need to look elsewhere if you're planning on getting the 5085's. You'll definitely want the Dubro arms you referenced.
