Rdb27,
Honestly, you have a month and a half, at least before your plane gets here to build up funds to get a larger gas engine and sell the Moki. Not only will you have balance issues but you will probably not like the performance. If that engine can turn, say, a 22X8 at about 6500, it might hover, but a 20 inch prop doesn't have much blade sticking out past that fat cowl and it will diminish thrust quite a bit...
