What motor did you finally choose, or are you still thinking about this? If you are still looking for advice, let us know.

You never said how much the plane weighed or what battery you were planning to use, so I will take some guesses. I will assume a 1 pound plane and 3 cell lipo is your target pack. So a 75 watt set-up should work.

Take a look at the combo 061 on this page.

This is a 90 watt package

I have one of these in my Mountain Models SmoothE and am very happy with it. You will need a 3 cell Lipo or 8 cell NiMh pack that can handle about 10 amps. I use a 3 cell 1250 15C pack from FMADirect.
