I was wondering if you guys could help me with something. I want to get a price on this plane and its electronics but want to get the electronics cheaper at a different supplier. Can I get some help? How can I tell that the electronics will work?

Motor: NTM Prop Drive Series 35-48A 1100kv / 640w

It spins a little faster (1100kv instead of 870kv) but it outputs about the same power at around 500 watts on a 3S and 640 watts on a 4 cell.

ESC: Hobbyking SS Series 90-100A ESC

Not a brand name ESC, but the reviews say it's good.

Servos: HobbyKing 929MG Metal Gear Servo 2.2kg/ 12.5g/ 0.10sec

Same characteristics as the recommended servos, and all good reviews.

thank you Colorex, but I am thinking that I would stay away from HK. I have bought tons of stuff from them, but if I am going to buy an expensive plane like that I want to really KNOW that they will work. From experience. I would trust that motor(I bought the same type for my cub), but the HK esc and servos I am a little worried about.

Every time I post about these servos four or five other people usually jump in to say how awesome they are.
Let me just jump in here and say how GREAT these servo's are ;) . I keep a stash of these on hand at all times for ALL my craft. Have never had one go bad yet. I have never used but one other (higher priced digital recommended for rcexplorer tri copter).
