Power System Picking

I need to pick a power system for my Pylon Racer I received.

I don't know the name. It has a 31 inch Wingspan ....

I don't want it to be horribly fast , 100-110 mph Max !

I also need a motor that what pull to many Amps , I can only fit small 1300 mah battery in this plane. I need to use around a 4 inch prop.

I would like the motor to be on the Semi cheap side.

I can fit a 28mm motor.

If you need any more information , I can get it ... except the name.

That looks like a DMA Skat.

You don't say what current your batteries are good for, so it's hard to make a good suggestion. Pick something that will spin a prop about 5x5, anything over about 100W will get you going nicely.

http://www.warbirds-rc.com/Store/hett-edf3w.html with an apc 4.75x4.75 prop and 40 amp esc. You'll pull 25-30 amps and fly ~115 mph. I've had better luck with the HET motors than the Hobbycity inrunners. One of the ARC 28mm motors might be good to (at about the same price) but I don't know much about 'em.

I have used HET motors and they work perfectly. I will consider that one.

Or if you wanna go real cheap see the power set-ups we use in our pylon racing club (~100 mph): http://sites.google.com/site/cuprapylons/ (look in the E-200 section).
