is this gear WAY too heavy for this flat out?


I ordered the reflection flatout from tower (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0001P?&I=LXJYS1 ) and was wondering if my gear is WAY too heavy to fly it. I know it is heavy, but I am wondering if it is so heavy I should not even try.

I have:

Park 400 brusless with Cobri gearbox
hitec electron reciever
GWS naro pro servos
thunder power 1900 mah 3 cell LiPo

it will fly but maybe not 3d. my flatana is like 13 oz which your will be heaver and my wings flex. you might want to run some carbon strips on your wing even though your wings LE and TE are carbon to help from flex. mine flys great even heavy but not 3d capable. if you ahve to get a smaller battery to save weight. otherwise go for it.
