The gear you have is quite large for a 24" plane unless you don't mind it being rather heavy and fast. You'd probably need a minimum of a 7" prop to get any useful power out of the motor on 3S, which is almost a third of the target wingspan.

Take this plane, for example. It's got a 22" span and weighs 3 ounces. It has a ten-gram motor swinging a 4.5" prop, 250mAh 2S lipo, and a 6A ESC. It's small and slow enough to fly in a small park, but only barely.

I think that is a 270 gram 1500 Watt motor, I don't think a 24" wing span is going to be enough airplane to fly that motor.

The one he have is probably this: BLM2822-27T
I agree with C₄H₁₀, too heavy motor for such small plane.

OK, the 29 gram motor might be OK for a Blu Baby 24, the part drawing for that can be seen here:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showa...0&d=1209747379

With that much power I would go with the stronger 24" KFm2 wing and the plans for that are here:

And post #1 here has some other plans for the BB 24:

The motor you have might still be a bit much for that SSS build. That has a 3 oz./85 gram AUW and in that build used a 12 gram GWS reduction gear drive. That drive had an input power of 5 to 7 Watts or so. Your 29 gram motor will be be about twice as heavy and 7 to 10 times as powerful.

If you scale up the components (wing thickness, fuselage stick size, servos, battery, etc.) to better match your motor it would probably work.

To scale it up would be to make all the parts proportionally larger. A 24" wingspan plane scaled up to a scale of 1.5:1 would become a 36" plane as an example.

It you strengthen the wing and fuselage it might work with your motor. I was just thinking that at 85 grams the materials might not be strong enough to handle the weight and flying stresses.

I can understand your concerns about portability with your job and the desire for it to be more portable.

If a flat, more rectangular form would be easier to store and transport you might want to consider a flying wing like the Divinity 42. That would store in an area that is about 12" x 44" and just 2-3" thick. And your motor would be a good choice for that plane:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1023254

Can you fly already? The Divinity will fly slow and and is a very stable flyer too. If you have a little flying experience it will not be too difficult to fly. It would not be quite as easy for a new pilot to fly as the SSS or a smaller slow stick.

The slow stick is a good choice for a slow flyer like the SSS. The SSS as you posted the link to it is really more of an indoor plane. Or course you can fly it outdoors but outside you really need a day with no more than a breathe of air moving.

The SS is sold in 46" and 37" wing spans but you can build it in almost any size. I build a clone of the SS I called the KFoenix Stick that had a 48" Kline-Fogelman wing:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1408747

You can get the square sticks in wood, fiberglass, CF and various sizes like 8mm, 10mm square. If you want to build to a smaller size for better portability it is not too difficult.

Your motor should work fine for a 48" or so SS build. It will have about 50-70 Watts of power will work well with slow flyer and park flyer type planes like the SS up to about 500-600 grams or so

If you have a plan and want to change the size, post it here or post a link to where it is. Maybe it can be resized to what you want to have.
