Techone Sukhoi EPP - What Power Combo?

Hey guys,

New to the plane portion of R/C, and so am wondering what I should get for a Techone Sukhoi EPP?

Looking for a system that will both fly gracefully (for small-er areas), and then speedy to overcome wind/those-moments-where-you-want-to-go-fast

So:
Motor, prop & esc

Thanks guys!

Hoping for the cheapest, time of arrival doesn't matter much to me, so HobbyKing would probably be best, but if there's cheaper, will definitely go for it!

I've flown EPP planes that size on the 24g BlueWonder, 2 or 3 cell, that HobbyKing sells.
It could even be flown on there 16g outrunner with a 3 cell if built light.

What were the ratings of the 24g motor?

They come in 1300, 1500, 1700 and 3000kv.
I use the 1300kv on a 3 cell, with a 8x6, on a 31" Boomer, SuperCub, 39" SuperZoom, 3D Typhoon(as a parkflyer), 55" Windrider sailplane, Wildwings and several more.
On 8oz and under, I use 2 cells.

While I'm no expert myself, wouldn't you want a bigger, low pitch prop for a 3D foamie? 8X6 seems kinda high speed. I'm planning to use an 8X3.8 for this plane.

The 1300Kv 24g outrunner will spin a 9x4 or 9x5 on a 2 cell and a 8x4 on a 3 cell.
