Motor for Radical Edge 540


I just picked up a Radical RC Edge 540 kit yesterday at a swap meet. I was planning on using the motor from my Simprop Suchoi in it. It's the Acudrive+ geared 280BB setup that Hobby Lobby sells with a 9X6 prop. Any opinions on it's suitability for the Edge?

Also, is the 0.07oz/servo difference for HS-55 vs HS-50 servos worth it?

You need the 370 size motor for good verticles and weight savings is for hovering. You will still have a great flyer with a few grams more.
