Heli Motor On Wing?

I have an ESKY Belt CP with brushless main motor and was wondering if i could mount it to one of my flying wings (Combatwings XR)?

Any idea if the Motor/ESC/LiPo would have enough rpm etc? Details of the parts are below...

I'm sure it'll fly You'll need to get the right propeller though.

I have been playing around with a 3000KV 25 gram motor, and I believe it drew over 20 amps with a 4.5 x 4.5 prop. I am amazed it's surviving that amp draw You'll want an even smaller prop. A 4.1x4.1 could be a good place to start, but I'd recommend you use a wattmeter to check that you're not frying the ESC. Remember that small props that spin fast generate a thin but fast airflow, so the wing might not have a lot of acceleration/power, but a high top speed.

I have several wings, and I'm most happy with the one that has a 50 gram motor around 1800KV turning a 7x6 prop on 3S. Lots of push, easy vertical climbs and plenty of speed.
