Default Electric Power Set up for a SIG 4 Star 54

I am new to RC Universe and New to rigging out electric RC Ships. I have ordered a SIG 4 Star 54 and need some advice on what to put in it to power it. Battery, ECS, Motor and Servos. Can any one help me with this or if I am in the wrong forum direct me to the correct one to post this inquiry.

Thanks

Mike

I think the best way to start is with the E-flite gear. They have motors called "Power 46" or "power 60" or whatever, where the number corresponds to the glow motor equivalent. They are great quality motors with great customer support, thus the price is very reasonable for what you get. They will list a corresponding ESC in the specs. You just need to decide on battery size, based on what other people are using with similar setups/airplanes.
