Apache AH-64 500 size

Hi,

Needed some advise from the experience scale flier here.

I have order an 500size AH-64 from SF, so I'm not sure so is my stock Trex 500ESP kit is good enough for the job ?

The objective is to start the scale project by re-using the current component that I have on hand(saving cost as wife is nagging).

Currently I'm using a 6S battery with the stock 60BL ESC, 1600KV motor, external BEC with 12T pinion gear. For start I'll start with 2 bladed while saving $$ for the 4 bladed rotor head.

What are the component needed to be changed or upgraded in my case ? FYI, this is my first scale project and I'm beginner in heli flying
