Default Acromaster Power Setup?

Hey guys, going to pick up an AM very soon here. Just waiting on the DX6i release before I make my purchase.

I've been heeing & hawing over for the past 2 weeks (read every setup/review there is on the web with regards to the acromaster, the best one being http://www.bungymania.com/acromaster/indexcontest3s.php ) and can't decide between these 3 motors:

TR 35-42D 1000kv (4mm shaft is a bit of a downside to this one)

TR 42-40B 900kv

KD 36-12L 1000Kv

I'd like to run a slightly larger prop (12x6 minimum, prob 13x7 or 13.6x6 I would guess most of you would recommend as ideal) as it probably gives better thrust. Would like to use my 3s TP 2100 Pro Lites but I'll also grab a couple 2500's too. Do note that I'm flying at 3800ft ASL, so a 10-12% "prop-up" equates the same performance & amp draw as at sea level for a good chunk of you.

Is there anyone out there who has experience with multiple motor & prop setups with this thing? I want loads of power & good efficiency (8-10+ min flights) while trying to stay under 40A if possible. I basically am looking for the best performing/efficient cheap power setup for it. Or maybe someone has motor comparison #'s out there? I'd like to hear other's power setup, prop, amp draw, flight times, flying altitude and your general favorite setups on this thing too!

Thanks guys!

Default Which motor did you choose?

I am thinking about buying this as a second airplane. Obviously, my skills are primitive; I'll end up using this model more as a sport plane than a 3d acro plane.

Which motor did you choose? Did it work well? Also, what speed control and what servos did you end up using?
