Exceed-RC's Alpha series park outrunner motors, are they any good?

Hello all, I'm new RCGROUPS and RC flight as well. Flying off the shelf foam right now but I have started my first scratch build and looking for a good outrunner motor for it. Its an EARL STAL FOKKER D.V111 scaled down to 51 inch wing span. Can any one tell me if Exceed-RC's Alpha series park outrunner motors are any good or not? Sold by NITROPLANES/HOBBYPARTS.

Exceed-Alpha are decent run-of-the-mill Chinese motors... we can suggest one for you, but what we need from you is the expected all-up-weight of your 51" Fokker... and the diameter of the largest prop which will fit.

Just like Dr. Kiwi says. weight of plane.
Plus
One other thing is if you have batteries already and your trying to re-use them, list what you got cell count, brand, C rating, Capacity (mah)

I fly my Alpha 480 920Kv with 3S and an 11x3.8 prop. I get great vertical climb and flight time. This is on an Airfoilz Extra 300 Depron foamie.
51 inch ? That sounds more like their Monster Power line. 10 or 15 depending on how much power you want. Maybe the Alpha 480 would pull it but your gonna really be slow and scale

I own every one of the Monster Power line except the 110, although not all are YET into planes.
