This motor seems like a much better match: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ner_Motor.html

Either 3 cells with a 13x7 or 14x7 prop or 4 cell with a 12x6.. should go great!
Thank you very much! I want to keep the project inexpensive, but I don't want it to end up being a pile of ^%$# because of it. The FliteTest guys used 2 HK 929, and 2 HK 939 Servo's and seemed to be happy.

These are the ones they used:

939: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...458&aff=247441

I am a little concerned about the HK servo's because I recently purchased some MG90S servo's from them, and the cases were so fragile, that they can't even be mounted by the mounting ears, they break off with the slightest stress. They are OK for a foamie glue in type operation only.
