First we'll open up WebOCalc, and enter the three things it needs:

Ready-to-fly Weight 25
Wingspan 48
Total Wing Area 345

Then we let WebOCalc suggest a prop size for us clicking on the Run Prop Size Wizard, which will then tell us that the most efficient prop would be in the range of 8.6" to 14" in diameter. So now we'll close the Prop Size Wizard and select 14" as our Maximum Prop Size.

Next, we'll select "Slow Sport Aerobatics" as our Flight Mission.

Then we click on Suggest Top Speed, and WebOCalc will automatically enter 44 mph for us. We do the same thing with Suggest Thrust, and WOC will enter 25 ounces of thrust for us.

At this point, I'll end this post... and start another so the posts don't get so hard to read.
