Default Kiwi needs advice for 450mm Pitts set-up

I am building a 450mm wingspan Pitts Special biplane scratch build EP foam model.
Radio is a Spektrum DX5e and Spectrum AR6410 DSMX 6-Channel Ultra Micro Receiver/ESC
I will use elevator, rudder, and alerons
What motor size, prop size, battery etc combo would be best for sport flying?
All advice would be appreciated

That's a tiny little plane. Probably too big to use a setup from a Parkzone/EFlite ultra micro, and too small to use any of the equipment I'm sufficiently familiar with.

Default 450mm Pitts Special

I have been flying a ParkZone Micro J3Cub and the reason in deciding to build the Pitts is to have a small model that would fly slowly and be capable of some basic aerobatics - no 3D stuff - at my nearby school sports ground.
I have searched high and low online for anything like this to no avail
