This is the combo I like to use.

Tower Pro 2408-21
20 amp esc
5 gram servos
7.4 1000mah lipo

I use a profile P-47 with a 28" wing span that comes out around 10 ounces ready to fly. Using the above set up with a 8x6 slow fly prop I get around 80 watts. I get 6-7 minutes of combat at full throttle the whole time .
