I have several Pico's.
The stock geared IPS motor weighs about 26 grams and can use a 2-3 cell lipo, but has to have the right prop for a 3 cell.
I have flown them on a 10, 16, 24 gram outrunner and 2 cell 300-500mah lipo batts.
So it depends on how much power you want. If you make them faster the wings will need to be reinforced.

Youll need a lipo safe esc otherwise nothing just follow the instructions using your own gear

one thing i will add is with the lighter weight power systems and batteries you need to add dihedral to the pico sticks to make them fly nice

hope that helps
