Welcome to Wattflyer, There is one guy here from Alaska that is pretty active but I can't think of his name right now. I think he is from the same area you are too.

heres a power system i use- works for any bigger parkflyer i got including my 5.5 foot Sportavia
http://cgi.ebay.com/A2208-2600KV-Bru...item256201a524
http://cgi.ebay.com/30A-Brushless-Mo...item230859512f
assortment of lipos of different weights to adjust cg- my wildhawk needs a 2650mah in the nose to balance , the Cessna needs a little 1500 in the nose to balance
just a fun power system, vertical , plenty of oomph- one rule, always over- esc , so the esc doesnt even get warm- its got a big job to do
the thing about that motor ,is its limited to a 6x4 apc sport (6x5.5 in the winter) when running 11.1 - not real scale looking on a lot of planes
