A little background...

The first thing we'll do is look at the amount of information we need in order to choose a motor and prop for our planes. As it turns out, there is very little we actually need in order to do this! Well over 90-95 percent of the typical planes we fly can be successfully outfitted with the correct motor and prop by simply knowing the following information:

1) The all up weight of the plane.

2) The amount of ground clearance we have available for our prop.

3) The wingspan and wing area of our plane.

Items 1 and 2 are pretty much self explanatory, so what we'll do is start by exploring why item number 3 is so important, and what it allows us to understand about our plane.
