Probably going to be pretty light being only a 30" balsa model. The first thing that comes to mind that's in stock is this:

TowerPro Brushless Outrunner 2410-08T 890kv

It'll spin up to a 10" slow fly prop on either 2s or 3s. If memory serves these motors will probably run hot with a 10" prop but that model probably doesn't have the clearance for a 10" prop, may have to go with 8"? It should do that fine (the motor)


Or this:

FC 28-22 Brushless Outrunner 1200kv

yes...that one looks good.

finish the model, see what it weighs, see what size prop will fit. Remember the old rule of 100w/lb. and you'll be good.

Most motors will say in the description what size prop is suggestion and how many watts it pulls.
