I would guess the Blue Wonder will give much better performance due to the decreased weight and I will be using a 9 X 4.7 0r 9 X 3.8 APC SF prop with pitch speed better suited to the draggy airframe plus you will be drawing 13+A and I will be drawing 10A. Keep us posted on your progress!
I use that blue wonder in both the Jenny and SE5A with an APC 8x4 thin electric prop and it has plenty of power. I like that it is a bolt in with no mods to the existing motor mount on the SE5a, though i did add some more right thrust to it.
