FT versa weight (heavy) and motor needed.

Hi guys first wing build. I looked every where for weight any motor recommendations all I could find was wings that come in under 500 grams. I may have gone over board on mine 750 grams with fpv tx and Rx no esc or motor yet. My question is before I build a motor mount or buy a motor I'm not quite sure on the power plant I need. I didn't want to post hope I could find it on my own or try and use ecalc but I'm just more lost. Thanks

The monster below weighs 990 grams and is ridiculously draggy.
I'm running a Turnigy D2836/8 1100KV with a 30 Amp ESC.

So a 1100kv should work. My flying style is low and fast for fpv. So I don't want draggy and with enough power to pull out of close calls.
