Default AW .60-.90 Extra 260 SETUP

Hey Guys
I'm looking to move to electric soon and was researching a set-up for the AW Extra 260 .60-.90

Looking to get 3-D capability out of this.

I put together what I think will be appropriate for this plane. I would really like your input on the different components.

I really appreciate your help on this. Like I said I did research this project, but I am new to Electric, so some experience on the subject would be very helpful to me.

Thanks Again

I plan on using the following:

Hacker A50-L

Electronic Speed Controller, Phoenix ICE 75 Amp Brushless, Castle Creations

ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 6S1P 30C

15x8 Wood Electric, Xoar
15x10 Wood Electric, Xoar

Plane Specs:
Wing span 60 inches.
Wing Area 690 sq. in.
Fuselage length 55" (Rudder to front of spinner)
Weight 6 to 6.5 lbs

Billy ... E motor KV for the series seems a little low to me, I may be wrong ... The highest in that series is only 348 kv ... It will want nothing less than the recommended prop but at what RPM? check around first. A suitable motor for that sort of plane has been the AXI 4130/16. Not saying to use it only but the KV is 385 and you can use it as a good guide.
