Default Angry Bird Power Help Needed

I need help to power this Angry Bird.
I have two RTF airplanes, but I want to make a couple of Angry Bird Fliers to fly with my Grandson.
I found a PDF with the models. I will cut it out of two sheets of Dollar Tree foam board as big as I can fit.
I drew it up in CAD so I can scale to fit.
The Help I need is:
1. What size motor?
2. What battery?
3. What ESC?
4. What size prop?
I look and there are son many different motors, props batteries, it is kind of complicated.
Does anybody just have a list of what they used for a small foamie about this size that is a pusher?
I need the prop size before I print it out.
Thanks

I was really hoping for some pointer before I ordered. I ordered these components from BangGood
1. DXW D1806 2280KV 2-3S Brushless Motor - $5.99
2. 4X SG51R 5g Plastic Gear Digital Micro Servos - $3.24 ea.
3. Htirc Hornet Series 12A 2-4S Brushless ESC - $8.50
4. Gemfan 6030 Direct Drive Propeller - $3.78
5. ZOP Power 11.1V 850mah 70C 3S Lipo Battery - $9.26

As soon as they come in (in a month) I will put it all together.
I am not sure if the motor is big enough, or too big. So, I just guessed. I hope the prop is the right size.
