Default Electric Twin

I have a Cermark Islander ARF twin designed for electric power. I do not have the construction manual and have no idea of motor size to use. The plane has a 72-1/2" wingspan. I do not fly electric, but I want to use this plane as a start. I want to use brushed motors. Can anyone tell me size of motors and size of speed control I would need? Thanks.

First don't use brushed motors. A pair of .46 eqiv motors like 4130 size turning 11x7 or so props would be good. Lipo: 9S 4200, common to both.
