Default Brushless Equipment for my Slo-V

I'm looking to change out the stock equipment in my Slo-V. I am thinking of using the following setup to replace it. If it looks good, please let me know. I'm sure anyone can make a suggestion for something different, but I just want to know if you see any glaring incompatibilities. I'm kinda new to this. Thanks.

BP 21 Outrunner Brushless Motor
Welgard 18A Brushless ESC
Apache Lithium Polymer (2-cell) 7.4V 800mAh - 15C (12A) continous with short bursts up to 20C (16A)
GWS 4CH (R-4PII)
2 GWS PICO STD servos
Li-poly Apache 2020 Smart Charger 1-3 cell charger
Neon 3CH TX with V-tail

Should be a good setup. Although I am not familiar with the Neon Radio. I just recently with with the spectrum radio and couldn't be happier. Also be sure to get the appropriate prop. Check with your motor manual, it should point you in the right direction

BTW, if you're gonna stick with the 2-cell lipo with 12 amp constant current, use a GWS 9x4.7 prop, so you don't pull more than 11-12 amps. The 10x4.7 just barely exceeds 13 amps in my setup on 2-cells, so don't use full throttle for longer than a few seconds (so it's safer to stick with 9x4.7 for now). The 9x4.7 will give you longer runtimes though. You can possibly try 9x6, but that may again exceed 12 amps and has lesser thrust, traded off for speed (not really what you need).
