I have a power 32 from value hobbies, a 60 amp controller without BEC, and a 4S battery in a 40 size stick. This setup produces 740 watts and a 45 amp draw with a 12X6 prop. My stick weighs between 5 and 6 lbs, I did not weigh it yet. If you use the rule of thumb of 100 watts per lb for a sport plane this should fly your 6lb P40. I also use a 6 volt receiver battery as I do not like to fly the bigger models with a BEC. I prefer the margin of safety of not having the radio and servo on the flight battery.

Well I have this in a 46 sized plane and it hauls lots of mule. I am running a 12x6 or 13x6 APC "E" prop.

Never heard of the ESC and the motor being one unit?

That setup will give you plenty of power. It will yank the plane off the ground like a rocket.
