Help! What size core can I use this equipment on? Thanks!

Hi everybody!
I have a bunch of equipment I was hoping to use on scratchbuilding my first wing. If possible, I have a small FPV system I want to use on it. I have a hotwire cutter, and have built a FireFly from laminated depron from scratch. So here's the equipment I have on hand and hope to use:

-18/20A or 25/30A ESC.
-TowerPro 2408-21: http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...idProduct=4321
-5 of these nice Futaba 44g servos: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...P?I=LXH286&P=8
-a bunch of 2200 3s lipos. I also have a parallel connector to be able to run 2 of these at the same time for double duration.
-Nice programmable radio.

If the motor is no good, I could buy another I suppose. But I don't want to invest in any other gear for this project.

My hope is to make a small solid wing for FPV. This means tough, stable, able to fly slow, and no aerobatics necessary.

What size of wing would work with this stuff? 36"? 48"?

Thanks again for your help!!!

Same basic construction, but the geometry is different.
