Question Super Cub LP upgrade advise

Hi guys,

This might have been discussed a gazillion times but I cant seem to get a firm grasp of the concept behind (I'm more of a visual learner kinda person )

Anyhow, my plan is to prep my SC for 4-channel flight, which among the many Spektrum DX6's are best tx/rx and which servos for elevators, rudder, throttle and eventually flaperons?

Also, the next project is to upgrade the motor to brushless. I'm leaning towards Turnigy or Eflite brands or any brand that would not render my SC in dead on the ground. I bought several 3s 11.1V 1300 Li-Po packs that I want to continue using. Having said that, what would be the best matching brushless motor/ESC with my existing Li-Pos? I am not after speed, just longer flight times per pack is what I'm looking for. For prop size, preferably remains at stock (9x5).

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!



EDIT: forgot to add motor mount?
