Motor substitution advice needed
I came across an old Cobweb airframe that was popular in the 2005-7 time frame.There are no electronics, servos or motor. The bare airframe weighs only 68 grams with control rods. I need to select a motor for it.
According to an old thread, owners used these motors: Hacker A20-50S, LensRC 22.7mm 17T and Python 30. The Hacker is 29g but I can only get sketchy info on the others. It appears that a BW 1300 KV might be a good one to try. I also have 15, 17 and 19 gram motors on hand. For power I'm thinking maybe 2S 400-500.
Anybody care to advise or comment?

Motrolfly 2203-1600 v2 (18g, ~1645Kv) would be good with a 7x4 APC SF.. just 4.50A (33W, 215g thrust @ 29mph).

Thanks, Dr. Kiwi. That looks like a nice unit. I appreciate the suggestion.
I have already installed a 1300 KV BW and am going to maiden it tonight in a golf dome. The BW balanced it nicely; the battery is just a touch forward of the CG, so I'm hoping for an uneventful maiden.
