X-29 Parts List

#1
I'm thinking of getting the X-29 and configuring as EDF. I've watched the build video a couple of times but I'm a bit confused as to what's needed for the electronics.
If I want to get everything from Flite Test this is the list I have so far:

E-flite Delta V 15 69mm EDF
E-flite BL15 Brushless Ducted Fan Motor (3600kV)
Flite Test 3.5mm 12" Motor Extension
4S 14.8V 2600mAh 45C battery

But here's where I get confused:
In the build video, around 1:26:19, Andres is using a BLHeli 40A Esc. The E-flite motor above requires a 60A Esc. Which ESC should be used?
Andres is using a 70mm EDF. But there isn't a 70mm EDF available from Flite Test.
There's been mention of a Flite Test EDF Power Pack but I don't see one.
Outside of Flite Test, is there a better 70mm EDF setup I should use?

Thanks.

I have this one earmarked for an X-29 build...

This requires a 6S battery and a 70A ESC. It weighs 240g. I'm worried that it's all too much weight.
The E-flite EDF and motor weight 194g. It's only a 46g difference for the EDF, but should it be a concern?

There's a 4S version of this EDF but 6S is going to be awesome :)
