Default Brushless setup Recommendations for new Kit

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and to RC flying in general. After lurking for info in all the RC forums I could find for the last few months, this one stands out as the best and most informative.

I live in Atlanta and am into small park flyers as there are no large parks near by. I do most of my flying in a park that's 90x40 yards with tall trees on all sides. I've found that there are very few small park flyers out there. I learned on 3 channel Parkzone products (Citabria and Vapor) and also have a stock Cox Corsair, which is plenty small, but is challenging to fly in this space as you have to fly it fast to keep it from falling out of the sky.

Anyway, I bought a Graupner Stinson Voyager kit from Graves RC, mainly because it's one of the few small 4 ch scale planes with a light wing loading (31' wing span, 10oz flying weight). It's my first kit and it recommends a speed 300 motor with a 7 cell NMIH pack. I want to go brushless / Lipo instead to save more weight and have no idea what set-up would be best for this kit. Since don't fly heavy acrobatics and have very limited park space, so I'd rather make the lightest plane possible, not the most powerful, which seems to be a different direction than most of the builds in this forum.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
