Default advice needed

I'm experiencing a slow motor acceleration from idle to mid RPM. If throttle is advancing abruptly it takes 2-3 seconds before motor reaches its commanded power.

Any idea if this can be fixed with ESC programming or maybe the transmitter?

Motor: Platenberg XTRA 30-10


Transmitter: JR XG14

Help Please!!
I am trying to find the proper prop,motor, ESC, battery combination. I have spent days using the online calculators only to find the motors listed are not available.
I scratch built a SU-37 out of chloroplast using the Shumate plans. Heres the info:
Weight (without power system) 42.1 oz. Wingspan 29 in, wing area 262in/1.97sq ft. wing loading 34.94, cube load 25.91, max pitch speed 63.27, stall speed 21.87. 6-7 in prop or EDF I would like 54-65z of thrust.
Please!! What do I need, and where can I get it? I live in Thailand, so it has to be reliable in hot/humid conditions.
