Default How does this look, second plane but first electric

I'm making the move from my .40 glow trainer to an electric for portability and no extra mess. This will be my first electric airplane. This is what I have in mind:

Great Planes ElectroStik EP ARF 52.5" http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXUTN8&P=ML
Great Planes Rimfire .32 http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXLWV3&P=0
Great Planes Silver Series 60A Brushless ESC http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXRDH3&P=0
12x6 prop to start
4s LiPo's: 40C 3000mAh, 20C 4000mAh, 20C 3000mAh
Futaba 6EX
ElectriFly ES80 Micro Servos

Also, any recommendations for chargers? LHS recommended the Passport Ultra Chargerhttp://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...ProdID=DYN4064I'm looking for something that can be AC/DC powered.

A few months ago I purchased another charger, mainly to charge my Lipos as my Hobbico wasn't cutting it. Anyway making a long story short, a couple of the guys at the field had purchased chargers from Hobby Partz, so I got on their site and started poking around and ended up ordering the "Thunder AC6 Smart LiPo Balance Charger/Discharger w/ AC Adapter for 1-6 Lipo/ 1-15 Nimh + USB to PC Software"

This thing is AWESOME. The ONLY down side of this charger is that it will only charge one battery at a time. But this thing is VERY easy to use and works GREAT at ballancing my LIPOs while charging, and it displays EACH INDIVIDUAL CELLs voltage as it charges. Right now its about $45 at Hobby Partz.

Wow, the reviews seem to be great. As a first timer, I think this may be the right choice for me.

Thanks for the suggestion!
