Please check-out my setup before I purchase

If you get a chance, please take a look and tell me if this setup is ok or not.

equipment I have:
1= Hitec flash4
2= CCPH10
3= 3S irate 1100 (Should I get 2S for the weight savings?)
1= gws4n receiver
2= Hs55

What I plan to purchase:
1= GWS Dragonfly base kit.
1= GY240 gyro
1= Himaxx 2015-4100 (main rotor) - which pinion? 12t?
(would this be the correct model for 3S?)
1= Feigao IPS brushless (tail rotor) which prop?
2= set of M24 rotor blades

Please let me know if I left anything out or If there is something I should change

Thank you very much,

3 cell LiPos will give you so much more power. I would think that this is almost the only way to go, if you are full brushless.

1= gws4n receiver
Some people report difficulties with this receiver when they have it in such close proximity to noisy electronics. I have not experience that directly, as I use a different receiver, and I do not recall what Brother #1 and Brother #2 use on theirs.

I see the future.

The only thing I see that you would change is the pinion. Use a 9 tooth with 3s LiPo's on the Dragonfly. You will have WAY more power than you know what to do with, dont worry about the weight of the batteries.
Also, I am not sure about the m24 blades. Being the maker of like90 blades, of course I recommend them. Getting your headspeed up is essential for good control.
Vince has a point about the receiver. They are not the best, and with the 2 CC Phoenix 10's, (which generate a good deal of rf noise) you may wish to consider a berg. The Berg 4 dsp is cheap and SOLID!
Standard prop for the Feigao is a GWS 3030 I believe.
Dont forget a head stiffener.

If I get an HB elite do I need a head stiffiner?
