Foamyfactory Yak-54 and Hymaxx motor


I have 40' of Fanfold and the plans for the foamyfactory Yak. I want to build the 36" version with a brushless motor. I also want to use 3s1p Etec LiPos.

It looks like the Hymaxx motors are starting to get back in stock and I would like to use one of them.

My question is.... which motor i.e. 2015-xxx, and should I get it with a planetary gearbox or adapt it for the GWS 350C gear box? If going planetary, which gearing and prop? If going the GWS route, which gearing and prop?

Oh, and should I get the Phoenix 10 or 25 for an ESC?

I have Motocalc, but I would like to hear of some solutions that have been put to the test.

Thanks in advance for your experiences!
