Guillows Cessna 170 150% Is covered!

Hey there everybody (who is reading), this is my first post. I have just finished covering my latest project. It is a 36" span, 5.2 oz., Cessna 170, enlarged from a Guillows plan. The weight is with all RC gear, but no power system. Gear is; Hitec feather rx., Electrifly c-5 esc., two Hs-55 servos. Rudder and elevator controlled. Wing loading is currently 4.4 oz/sq.ft. I now have to choose where to go. So far, GWS has the only online database of motor/gearbox/current draw. From their charts I like the performance of the eps 150c-2s. From what I 've gathered on these forums, this is a hopped up speed 280. So what would the experts here suggest? I don't want more than a 7" prop and more than 4 amps average if possible. Also, I almost always have a breeze in my area so a little wind penetration would be nice.
