Question
What size motor foam AgCAt scratch build!

I'm designing a G-164 B Turbo Ag-Cat to be built from FFF from the home improvement stores. It's going to be a 1/10 scale plane with a full fuselage and airfoils for the wings. The standard wingspan at 1/10 scale is 43.1 inches and a wing cord of 6 inches. The one I'm modeling has an extended wingspan and a lengthened tail. So that will make it 50.8 inches ws with the same 6 inch wing cord.

Can someone suggest what size motor and ESC I should think about using in this plane. I need to finish drawing up the plans so I can start building.
I would like to use a 2200 mah to 2500 mah 3s 11.1v Li-po.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Here is a pic of the actual plane that I'm modeling.

I think one of my KA 22-XXL's from the bottom of this page of my website would be a good place to start. Either of the bottom two.
