Prob cheapest setup would be a MM esc with external BEC running 4S with a Feigao 8XL (7XL gets too hot). That should put you in the 40s and be as easy on the pocket as it gets. Downside is you'll have to pay attention to temps as the Feigaos tend to run hot - def add an RCM heatsink. Maybe consider a medusa, they are better motors, but are going to cost more too.

This is worth a read - see #15 on BL upgrading
