This is a real ball park but I would use a fairly lage motor that still has a fairly high KV so you can use a relatively small prop.

Start with an 11x7 prop, a 4s battery and a 60 amp ESC

All just guesses but should get you started and inexpensive but good stuff.

Hey Need4Spd. I was looking for the plans to same kit. Please let me know if you would be willing to sell me the plans once you are all done with your build. I have a half built plane that would greatly appreciate the help.
