I don't know anything about the electric motors. I just go by the wingspan, wingarea and overall weight. Together with the aimed style of flying that's all you need to chose a glow engine. On glow they usually come out a little lighter too.

What is the size of that plane?

A Norvel .074 or a .10 engine would fly that fine. The TT07 should work too, it is a little lower than a Norvel .061 in terms of power and it is heavier.
