That looks like a good choice of motor. Looks to be around 450-500 watts with 3cell and 14x8 Cam folding prop. Get a collet type spinner/prop adapter for the correct shaft size. Looks like you will need a minimum of 40 amp ESC. Your battery size will be determined by CG. Go with the smallest battery that will give you a CG of 35% to 40% of wing cord at the fuselage. Keep in mind that the smaller the battery capacity the higher the discharge rate must be. For example, my Supra balances with a 3 cell 850 ma battery and I run 80c Pulse batteries. If I were running 1300 ma then I could get by with a 50c battery.
