Im looking into another wheelset as im wanting to use my current one on another bike.
I was thinking:

Odyssey 7KA + Fly Bikes Front Hub + Radial Spoking Pattern
Odyssey 7KA + Federal Freecoaster + Radial Spoking Pattern

OR

Colony Clone + Gsport Marmoset + Radial Spoking Pattern
Colony Clone + Federal Freecoaster + Radial Spoking Pattern

OR

Odyssey Duralectra + Fly Bikes Front Hub + Radial Spoking Pattern
Odyssey Duralectra + Federal Freecoaster + Radial Spoking Pattern

What do yous reckon?

Why radial laced? I have noticed quite a few flatlanders do that...

Option One.
Like i said before Connor, not too keen on Radial lace.

Marmoset to Ribcage
Federal FC to Ribcage

cross-lacing is way stronger than radial.

If you can mix up what you said:
Odyssey 7KA + G-Sport Marmoset + Radial Lacing
Odyssey 7KA + Federal Freecoaster + Radial Lacing

If you can't do that then i would pick option 1.
Or what wearnikes1321 said.

Haha, it's cool. I just assume that chances are if you flatland, you probably have a bike set up to do everything else, too.

Flatlanders radial lace wheels to increase the lateral (side to side) stiffness of the wheel, but it really makes the entire wheel very stiff in every direction. It's great when you're practically dancing with your bike and you need the bike to respond absolutely predictably even when the entire weight of the bike and rider is resting on the sidewall of the front tire. So, it's not hard to see why they would want the wheels as stiff as possible. It's also marginally less weight because the spokes are shorter.

However, radial laced wheels put more stress on the hub, which could lead to flange breakage. Also, because they're so stiff, the consequence of repeated [bad] landings is more likely to be broken spokes and dented/flat spotted rims than simply knocking the wheel out of true. Cross-laced wheels will give you a measure of leeway prior to spoke breakage and rim denting BECAUSE of the flexibility of the wheel. Some rear wheels (mostly in the MTB world) nowadays do half radial lacing, in which the drive side is cross laced, and the non-drive side is radial laced for increased stiffness.

You should also check with the hub warantee to make sure you don't void it by radial lacing.

That said, 7kas to Fly front and Federal Rear win.
