Default What size electric?

I am building a Lazy Bee from plans. The engine size is 049 to 15 . Is there a chart showing what size Electric motor to use? I would like to stay in the upper power range.

A lot will depend on how lite you build it. If it is less than 2 pounds you could go with a small park 480.

This one would be around 200 watts

over 300 watts.

Or if it is a little on the heavy side you could go with a G10
