Well, here's the recommended system at Tower Hobbies: Multiplex Mentor Power Pack.

I have it in my Mentor and I think it's a good setup, but I use 3s 3300 batts and get 5 minutes, so I don't think you'll be happy with the 2200's, unless you parallel them and put them both onboard. I've seen others put much bigger motors in theirs, like the ones out their crashed E-Flite Carbon-Z Yak, and 4 cell batts. Those are ballistic!

I'm also not comfortable yet with selecting motors, so I usually stick to recommended stuff, or motors that have power specs listed for each prop or I'm likely to get it wrong. Seems to be more an art than a science the way they name their motors. Some people have it figured out though, and hopefully they can be more help.
