Here's some specs on the micro if its the same as yours?
On the bell motor, there's some test results posted by users here:
Looks like the 8x4 would do it on the bell, but would be pushing the micro with 3S.

I powered mine with a 2200kv motor spinning a 6X4 Prop (tried 6 X 5.5 prop,esc went up in a big puff of smoke) connected to a 30 amp ecs and a 2200 3 cell lipo. It flies fast, rolls fast and lands a little fast.With it a little on chunky side weighing close to 1 1/2 pounds the Cutlass handle some strong winds . I had to paint the wing tips red. A Grey plane with Grey skies makes interesting flying.

AX 2308N Micro motor.

I just wanted to thank you for this wonderfull scratch plane !
It flies very well, slow passes and high manoeuvrability with a good top-speed with my setup !
I've made few mods (smaller elevons, "depron" foam --> EPP airframe was too much soft with my 1st version)
AUW : 205 gr
Motor : Turnigy 3020 1800kv
ESC : 30 A
Lipo : 3S 1100mA 35C
Prop : 6x4 E
Servo's : 2x 5gr Hextronik
Cheers from France !

Couple more versions of the Cutlass. The little weeny one is made from $ store foam. It's 18 in. wingspan and weighs 1.8 oz. WO batt. Batt. is 3 cell 360 ma. Radio is the HK 4 channel orange rcvr with 1.7 gram servos. Motor is a Turnigy 5 gram turning a 5-3 prop. Flies like charm but to quick for indoors. Bigger one is unfinished (started about 10 yrs ago)33 in. WS with a 70mm ducted fan. Made from blue foam, all cut with a hot wire. Fuse. was cut in three sections. Wing is covered with Doculam, a stickyback plastic film. It has 1/4 in. balsa spars. Must finish it someday.
