Might be a touch big. Hard to move the battery back far enough to get good cg cuz the wing gets in the way. I'm using a 450 size motor.

Note: the 72g does not include mount and hardware so it really weights closer to closer to 85 or 90g.

My 450 weights about 72g including hardware and I had to cut another hole in the fuselage to move the velcro to hold the battery back against the wing. Any farther and you would have to mount the battery under the wing. For reference I'm using 40c 1600mah Sky lipos.

Puts you in a smaller prop. The 450 size will get into a 11 x 3.8 that I'm using and likeing alot. I'm getting flight times over 11mins.

If you can get some 1500mah that might be ideal. 1300mah will do the trick but shorten flight time a bit.

I've been using a e-flite 450 swinging a 11x3.8 always been happy with this setup.

Ditto..thats the one!!

The numbering systems between manufacturers are not always uniform but the Eflite 450 or one of similar power and weight would be great.

Try not to rely on the 22-15 type numbers so much. Use the weight and power specs and note the prop that is recommended for the motor you choose.

A general rule on on prop length is wing span divided by 4 so a 9" prop could work but if you can use a longer prop then do it as it allows more airflow over the surfaces for 3d and makes hovering a little easier.

Metal Gear Towerpro's. They are listed as 9g but weigh closer to 13g.
