Default Electric motor selection

My team and I are designing a 36" wingspan top-wing mounted RC plane that will probably weigh about 8 lbs (very simple design). We want it to carry an additional amount of weight (say 8-10 lbs). Does anyone have any recommendations for a light-weight electric motor that can haul at most 18 lbs? We have been researching a lot, but there are quite a few to consider. We are open to different prop styles as well, though we have been hitting around a 6" 4 thin electric propeller. Thanks!
