Help!

I need your help choosing a setup for my plane


I'm going to get the Rainbow F3A from Sky Hobbies.

Specifications:
Fuselage lenght: 1480 mm
Wing span: 1380 mm
Weight: 820 gram
Flying weight: app 2160 gram

This plane is made of EPO.

I found one recommendation for a setup for this plane:

Motor: TGY AerodriveXp SK Series 35-48 1100Kv 770W
ESC: Hobbyking SS 90-100A
Prop: 12x6 or 13x6
Battery: 4S 3000mAh

What do you think of this setup? What would you change about it?
Regarding to props, there are APC style and sport props. Which one do I need?
Also, which servos should be used in this kind of plane?

I'd really appreciate the help, as I'm quite new to this.

I think you might get better responses in the Sport Planes section. This area is for slow-pokes...

I'm sorry, what is "the chord of the wing"?

I lack the terminology in English...

The "chord" is the length of the wing from the LE (Leading Edge) to TE (Trailing Edge) or front to back

Thanks!

Well, I still don't have the plane, so I can't answer that question I'm afraid.
