ESC: I was planning on the Mamba Pro 1S since I already own other MMP's.
Motor: I was going to go LRP X12 13.5
any help would be great.
Battery should be good especially at their sale price of $30.
If you want cream on the crop servos, get the KO-951. People are even using that servo in their TC's. If you want to go budget, look around used. The futab s9650 is priced right for even new.
You won't go wrong with a Tekin. Make sure to get the hotwire.
As far as motors go, they are spec'd so good. *MOST* motors are really close in power. Of course there is always the chance that you get a better motor than someone else, but that is with any brand. The key is to gear and set your ESC right. I personally prefer the ballistic series can I can get any wind I want for $40 new.
