That will depend alot on what type plane. The power requirements vs weight are different for a trainer and a 3D plane.

For example a saito 100 is a good match for around a 5lb 3d plane but would also work well in a 10+ pound trainer.

What style flyer are you looking for?

So much of it depends on how the airplane is designed aerodynamically. That's why you really can't find a good chart like that.
