FT Mini Arrow efficiency build

#1
WOW!! Totally blown away with some of these Arrow designs and just the forum community in general. I now have another question to ask. I have decided on my second plane, and would like to get a general idea for what to shop around for. I'd really enjoy an Arrow with some zip but also efficiency. I already have an 850mah 3S 35C battery, but I want to know the largest that I can fit in the compartment w/o expanding it. Any Arrow owners out there?

Here's some of the parts I was looking into:
Motor - Turnigy D2826-6 2200kv Outrunner Motor
ESC - would 30A be enough?
Battery - size restrictions? 850mah 3s?

The little "fuselage" is pretty cramped. I have to cram the 800 mah into it. If I built another one, I think I would do the blunt nose mod or look to use the optional wing bays. Hope that helps.

I have a 30a esc in one wing, and the 800mah 3s is a tight fit. You may be able to fit your battery if you put the receiver in a wing as well.
