Volantex Ranger 1600 KIT Setup?

I'm looking in to getting the KIT version of this plane but I'm not sure what parts to get, I've put a list together of parts I'm leaning towards but I'm hoping for some reassurances or recommendations:

Servos: MG90S Metal Gear RC Micro Servo - Dimension: 22.8 x 12.2 x 28.5mm - Weight: About 13.4g

Brushless Motor: SunnySky X2216 2216 1250KV Outrunner Brushless Motor For RC Models - Weight: 68g

Flight Stabilization System: Volantex Xpilot AX601 6-Axis Flight Controller Stabilizer

Receiver: FrSky G-RX6

ESC: Aerostar RVS 40A Electronic Speed Controller w/Reverse Function 3A BEC (2~4S) - Weight: 36g

Battery: Li-ion 4S1P 14.8V 3500mAh ENDURO Advanced Lithium Battery – Tube - Weight: 215g

Charger: iMAX B6 AC Lipo NiMh Li-ion Ni-Cd RC Battery Digital Balance Discharger Charger

Transmitter: I have a HubsanH501F Transmitter from my old Hubsan301F SpyHawk, I'm hoping it will be compatible with this Setup.

I had some trouble with the Propeller Setup but I think I've found the right parts for the Prop:

Blades: Aeronaut CAMcarbon 8x4 folding prop blades - Maximum RPM: 16000

Yoke: 38mm Aluminium centre piece - These folding prop bars are suitable for Aeronaut folding propeller spinners from 33-36mm but can also be used standalone

Yoke Adapter: Prop Hub Reducer 8mm to 5mm - This is needed because the Bore of the Yoke is 8mm.

Blade Stopper: Folding Propeller Blade Stopper - Works with 38mm and 42mm centre pieces.

Motor Adapter: Aluminum Bullet Prop Adapter Propeller Holder For Brushless Motor Prop - 3.0 5mm - This is needed to so the motor shaft will fit the 5mm Yoke Adapter.

This is the FPV equiptment I've chosen:

FPV Camera: Eachine 1000TVL 1/3 CCD 110 Degree 2.8mm Lens Wide Voltage 5-20V Mini FPV Camera NTSC PAL Switchable - Weight: 10.4g

FPV Transmitter: Eachine TX526 5.8G 40CH 25MW/200MW/600MW Switchable AV Wireless FPV Transmitter RP-SMA Female - Weight: 6.8g

FPV Goggles: Eachine EV200D 1280*720 5.8G 72CH True Diversity FPV Goggles HD Port in 2D/3D Built-in DVR

I'd appreciated any recommendations. Thanks.
