Question
Wing Powerplant?

I'm not sure if I should be posting here or the scratchbuilt forum, but here it goes. I had a very nice gentleman give me a blue foam wing minus the electronics of course. It is a 31" wing. What motor would you recommend me using on this. Also prop size and battery wouldn't hurt either Thank you for your help.
