EDF selection for slow flying jet

I have no experience with EDF's and decided to build the S-3B Viking. I am thinking 36 inch wingspan, hopefully bellow 10 oz AUW.
Would like to make it fly as slow as possible as I am not a good flyer yet.
Any advice on what EDF might be suitable is welcome. Brushed preferred. I have a lot of J250 motors. Will be nice if these can do the job. If so, what fans?
I am also open to off the shelf EDF's.
I assume a larger diameter fan is more suitable for low speed. I am willing to sacrifice the proportions and build it with larger fans.

Thanks,
S55

Wattage has a larger S3-A that flies very nicely and at reasonable speeds.
