What kind of plane do you want to build, what will be its Approx weight, wing span, do you want to fly 3D or just sport flying, Like Bill said, lots of Variables from plane to Plane, when you get ready to buy a power system, Contact Jeff at Heads Up Rc, Jeff has Some of the best Prices on a Power system and only 2.00 shipping on the whole purchase, Tell Jeff that Chellie sent you
you will need a UBEC with this ESC, as larger ESC normally dont have BECs built in.
with this 60 size 580KV motor i would use a 5 or 6 cell lipo. 4500 to 5000mah and 20C Rated, hobby kings turnigy lipo is one of the better values in price, they have a USA Warehouse if your in the states.
