Probably work okay but here are my thoughts;
The HB servo is not a metal gear servo. I do not think long arms are a good thing as you will increase the leverage and stress loads on the plastic gears. Aileron will have enough travel on standard length single arm.
With the 65MG in the tail the battery will be tucked under the cowl that you might not like. I am using 3S 2200's also and pull pull and with a super lightweight Falcon 13x6.5 wood prop I can only get one strap on with about 1" of the battery sticking out from the cowl. When I switch to a 14x7 APC prop (heavy prop) the battery moves back about 1-1/4" or so.
My 2200's are 35C Glaciers and are amazing. I fly 6 minutes and land with 3.78v/cell average and are barely warm.
I am still undecided on the right prop. I don't really like the APC and will wait for the Falcons to be back in stock or I will get a Xoar in 14x7. I do se that Joe flys the 13x6.5 in this with a O130g motor.
