Please help me determine size and prop of Flying Wing

Hello world !

Gear available = 7.4 LiPo, 50-70 Watt brushless slow-fly, 8060, 8037, 8050
and such props. This is a slow fly combination.
Mission = put together a flying wing made of Blue Cor.

[1] What weight and wingspan flying wing do you think I should put together, at that setup ? Im not interested in crazy climb speed, just a smooth flight.

[2] And generally, how the heck does one determine what plane to build, GIVEN the power plant ? E.g. suppose I wanted a Cessna, is that possible ?

PS: I recently posted about a Hurricane build. The plane parts are ready but I put them aside because Im not ready yet to build it correctly. I need to get familiar with some power/speed experiments first. Im sorry to those that responded that Im not building it, but I hope this is temporary !
