Default Herr star cruiser

Hi guys
I could use a little help on a new rc kit I just order.
I order the Herr star cruiser . I have all the electroics and wheels etc.
I need to build a complete plane.
My question is what motor do you thing would be the best choice.
I have a motor/esc / batt. out of a calypso glider. 28 motor 18 a esc. 1300KV
3300 lipo 30c . I also have a Motor out of a apprentice 15e Its a 15 size 840KV
w/ 30A esc. I have a Himax 3510-1100Kv and 3516-840Kv. My 36A esc
has died. So I'm thinking of going with the motor out of the Calypso Glider.
But what do you think would be best for a Herr star cruiser .
Thanks for any advice..

Recommendations for equipment will be included with the kit. I suggest that you wait until the kit arrives. Most of your questions will be answered in the documents supplied.

Thanks Tom I am going to wait before I chose a motor etc.
The last time I built a balsa kit it didn't get off the ground. the landing gear hit a large rock ( i was flying in the desert)
it was ripped off. It then went straight up and the bad part straight down. 1) I think it was to heavy to take off.
and 2) center of gravity ( after landing gear was removed ) thrown way off.
So this time I'm going to do everything 100 % right. Motor, KV, prop. and thrust is a little confusing.

Just take your time and think things out, before applying glue. I've built a couple Herr designs, and they build well.

Enjoy your building experience !
