Default RE: Electric motor selection

Really? Is there a typo here or are we really talking 18lbs on a 36" wing? What is the AR? Even if the AR is 3:1, that is a wing loading of nearly 50oz/sqft. Not going to be easy to make that fly with any motor, except maybe a gas turbine, but even then it would be "interesting." It would help to confirm that weight/span and maybe a bit more info about the wing/plane design.
