Great Planes recommended motor and battery?

Has anyone built a Cherokee with Great Planes recommended battery and motor? I have a new E-flite 60amp speed control ready for one. I just have to decide on the power system. Any opinions/advice would be appreciated.

Brad,
I actually flew one with the recommended setup. It flew great and was lightest of all three setups that I flew(glow,A123, and Lipos). The only thing I dont like about Lipos is the long charge time, but if your the type of person that don't mind waiting, I would suggest this setup.
I didnt actually read any draw currents, voltage, or wattage outputs for that setup since we didnt have a wattmeter handy at the moment. I just trusted the owner, and flew it, which was great.

Brad that depends if the motor holes align with the mount. They usually make these motor mounts universal, so it may fit any motor. I would suggest you taking a look at the motor mounts that hobby city have. Thats what I'm using on my setup, and I found that not only they can be used on most of their motors (turnigy, etc..) but they also can be used with AXI motors.
