Default Good Economy setup for EasyStar & Minimag


I'm looking for good economy setup which can be used for BOTH Multiplex EasyStar and Minimag.
(MiniMag/Easy Star Power Pack works with both but is more expensive and has only 17A ESC)

I'm looking for good inexpensive BL motor, ESC, sevos which can be used with both EasyStar & Minimag with minimum modifications. (MiniMag/Easy Star Power Pack is more expensive and has only 17A ESC)
BL motor & ESC should be in a range with surplus power & rating & allow different propellors.

Is "HXT 2835 (380S) 2200kv Brushless Inrunner" as good as "Himax 2815-2000 Brushless Motor" ? Is it suitable for both EasyStar & Minimag and can fit either without any mounting modifications ?
(Himax 2815-2000 weighs lesser & has more power, but cost 3 times more)
Better than "Suppo 2212/6 with a Suppo 30A ESC" ?

Which inexpensive Brushless Outrunner is recommended for MiniMag & EasyStar ?
How much mod will be required ?

Which servos can be used for both EasyStar & Minimag ?
I read "HXT900 9g/1.6kg/.12sec Micro Servo" and "HXT500 5g/.8kg/10sec Micro Servo" from Hobby City are as good as Hitec HS-55 ?
RTF versions of EasyStar & Minimag include Tiny S servo.
Which one should I buy to use on both EasyStar and Minimag ?

Is "TURNIGY Plush 25amp Speed Controller" OK for both EasyStar & Minimag ?
Better than "Suppo 2212/6 with a Suppo 50A ESC" or "Hextronic 36Amp ESC" ?
Better Choice ?

Thank You.

I plan to use 3S 2200mAh Lipo only.
Is this the prop which comes with MiniMag/Easy Star Power Pack: APC 5.5 x 4.5 Speed 400 Electric Propeller - LP05545
Is it the best choice for HXT 2835 (380S) 2200kv Inrunner + TURNIGY Plush 25amp ESC combo ?
Or should I use any other prop like APC 6x4 or APC 6x5 ?

For build, can I use Loctite Super Glue OR Loctite Super Glue Gel ?

Check out Heads Up R/C's lineup of motors and ESC's. I use them exclusively in all my planes and they have been nothing but good stuff. Jeff runs a top shelf operation and ships both fast and cheap.
