Thumbs up I just bought a electric stick question...

I went to a local hobby store and purchased a electric stick from Great planes. The kit called for a 40 sized engine but the folks behind the counter said that the 20 sized motor will work. Im not schooled properly on the numbers of this new to me hobby, so I may sound incorrect. I noticed that the 20 sized motor length is a little bit longer in profile than the recommended motor, I was wondering if it would badly effect the center of gravity for this bird? It also calls for a 11 inch prop, but the btc guys said the motor has good torque and a 13 inch prop will do. Will it have enough clearance during vx or vy? Its a tail dragger so it might need to do a slight nose down rotation to get airborne for vx or vy. Any input would be greatly welcomed thanx, Cessna dude!
