depends on how big the wing is...
typically for a 1/2a size airplane you want somewhere around 14 oz per SQ FOOT of wing area...
soooo assuming you're looking at roughly one sq foot of wing area, the golden bee should work for you

Wing is 24" long and is 8" wide at center and 6" wide at wingtip.So there should be enough wing area.
