As far as upgrading goes, you'd probably spend more on hop-ups than the full-blown Cyclone kit to get it to that point, so that issue should probably be tabled for the time being.
With regards to chargers, Integy sells their products worldwide, in most places under the Eagle
brand name (or is it that Eagle sells their stuff in the U.S. under Integy name?). Anyways, RCMArt has the "Eagle" version
for $66.50 US.
The problem with the ProPeak is that he will quickly outgrow it. My suggestions were for items that would be good for a beginner BUT that would not hold him back as he progressed.
I think you need to spend some quality time down at the LHS. Maybe the shop will cut you a package deal.
