Exclamation Exi 450 setup question

I am getting an exi 450 pro carbon fiber soon.. I was wondering if I can use the same electronics off my brushless Exceed Raptor G2. I have a 3500kv brushless motor and 30A ESC and the proper gyro with the 9g servos and a nice computerized 6ch radio and receiver. Will this setup work for an EXI 450 or will I have to get different/better electronics? I would much rather spare the headache and just transferr the old electronics from my G2. Any response greatly appreciated and thank you!

i doubt you`ll get the best performance with those electronics, but for simple/basic flight you`ll be fine.
the EXI is probably heavier, so better electronics would be a good investment.

The 30A ESC might be a bit on the low side. 40A would be safer.

i'm running a turnigy plus 30 amp esc on one of my 450 and no problems so far..i'm not doing anything hardcore 3D stylin..so it hasn't been pushed very hard..but your setup would be totally fine for an initial go at it...

I ran a 25A out of an axe 400 for a while with a 3500kv motor.
