Default 28" Blasa Stearman Power Suggestions?

Hi folks,

I recently brought a Guilows kit of a 28" PT-17 Boeing Stearman which I'm going to convert to Electric RC. I've been building gliders, cars and boats for years but when it comes to airplane power there are too many options! So anyone out there who has suggestions for motor/prop/speed controller/li-po for this little beast, it would be much appreciated. Not looking for ground breaking performance but enough power to make it a nice flier. I've got 11.1V Lipos for my chopper which I was thinking of using, but its an open book. Anyone done this conversion before? Also servo strength suggestions? Was thinking 4x 9g (1 each aileron, 1x rudder, 1x elevator)
