I guess you mean 245 g static thrust?

If so, that does not say much about the in flight thrust, almost nothing at all, actually.

If L/D is close to 2:1, you will be able to see it during power off.

However, you can streamline it or not, you will have to pay the AR of mere 6 with a fair share of induced drag, anyway.
In addition to that you have a small chord and thus smallish Re numbers, that lead to rather mediocre drag coefficients by itself.

Still, I'd expect at least a 5:1 to be reasonably possible.
