It's not really possible to help you without knowing more about the plane you want to power.

- What size and weight is it?
- Is this free flight or radio control (you've posted in the free flight section)
- What style of flying do you want? Aerobatics? Trainer? Long flights? Racing aircraft?

From this information you can work out what approximate thrust you will need and then you can make decisions about which motor and prop including what KV and how many battery cells. Then the ESC and battery is chosen to provide appropriate current (Amp) rating and flight time.

The more information you can provide about your model, the more help you will get.
