cox 049 rc on a rcpowers extra 300 balsa wood 3d?

hey everyone im new to nitro rc and really like 3d profile planes but i still love nitro planes. so the other day i baught a cox 049 with the rc throttle ring and was wondering if it would have enough power to pull a fully made balsa wood extra 300 based on the rcpowers one. if it can what type of electronics am i going to be needing? sorry your going to have to bare with me as the only electronics ive been using with rc so far is a usb cable to my computer for about 1/2 a year :P so like will i need a speed controller? i will be purchasing a spektrum dx6i as i plan to be in the hobby for a while and like to have a "hanger" of planes.and one more thing, is the throttle ring sensitive on the 049?

thanks very much and all comments will be much appreciated!

O49's and 3d dont mix....not to say someone couldnt do it if they really wanted to....049's make very little power compared to electric motors now. your "electronics" will depends very much on the size of the plane...I recommend talking to the guys at your LHS(assuming they are educated) about what setup is best for you.

"and one more thing, is the throttle ring sensitive on the 049?" NO!

PS. don't buy and extra 300 as your first plane, they are not good trainers.
