Default which motor

hey guys. i have a new foam flying wing and its not my first. it is a large size tech one pop wing from nitro planes. it weighs 325 grams with a 1500mah 3 cell battery and has a wingspan of 35" and im running a30 amp esc. tech one reccomends running a 2208 motor with kv of around 1400 and a 6x5 or 7x5 prop. im just wondering if you guys agree with that motor size or should i go a little larger.im not looking to make it any faster. thank you.

Default RE: which motor

A Suppo 2208-14 (~1420kv) or a Strongpower 2208-14 (~1545Kv) or a SunnySky/EP Buddy (~1450Kv) with a 7x5 would do you well... heck, your plane is 325g... the Strongpower gets you 580g @ 53mph from 12.75A/136W.... the SunnySky gets you 602g @ 54mph from 13.10A/138W.... put a 7x6 APC E on the SunnySky and you get 621g @ 63mph from 14.20A/150W.

You could go up to a Suppo 2208-12 (~1825Kv) and get 725g @ 57mph from 18.70A/200W
