Default Electric Motor,battery,Prop for Mini Bell

The Peck Polymers Mini Bell was designed for a Cox Pee Wee .020.

What electric setup would you suggest?

The specifications are:
Wing span 25"
Wing Area 100" sq. in.
Flying weight 8-10 OZ (assumed to be with a .020 and older Cannon radio gear)

I was thinking the Wattage 180 motor and direct drive prop from their 180 cub may be about right with 6 cell 2/3 NiMh 370 battery, but am guessing. I based this idea on the wing span and weight of the cub.

I was going to recommend a GWS IPS geared motor for your power system but it looks like someone already tried it and likes it.

Good luck!
