Plane recommendation

Hi.I have an Arducopter that flys great but i want to build a plane next.I want to be able to fly for 1 Hour, so i am thinking 2X 5000mah batteries. I also want to put my FatShark attitude FPV kit onboard aswell as the APM 2.6, ESC and Motor. I have never flown a plane before but this wont be an issue after a few crashes. I want a plane that is popular and easy to get spare parts for.What plane will hold all this kit ?See More
