Also the lipo i will use is a Flight Power 25 3S1P 1800 mah 11.1V battery will this give me a good flight time with mix throttle?
As Bryan says - your amp draw is likely to be waaaay more than that pack can deliver. I just found some data for the 2W with a Wemotech Mini 480 EDF, which indicated 45A using a 3200 20C pack - and even then the pack voltage dropped to 9.8v after only 30 seconds.
