Sorry, but that motor is WAAAAY to small in my opinion for this plane. That's a little tiny 60g motor that's only rated for 10a burst. That's only like 100-120w which would be lucky to get this bird in the air I'd look for something in the 120-150g range which only helps this tail heavy plane balance easier. I highly recommend a 35-42 size motor with 900-1100kv. Something like these:
