Well, I'm no expert on that particular model since I don't own one, but with an 11 day lag, I guess it's time someone jumped in with an answer.

It appears to be about the same size as a Twisted Hobbys Crack Sbach 32", which I do have, so I would think that a 1500kv Blue Wonder with a 3S Lipo and an 8040 EP (GWS) prop would do fine. There's probably about 50 other motors that would work well, some of which might be easier to mount, depending on the firewall they provide.

Edit: Oh, I see you're in the US. The better link would be this one. Also, I see a lot of 1300kv motors on these types of planes. The 1300kv is here for the USA warehouse.
