Default Nippy 0808-98 on graupner hydro boat/plane

Will a Nippy 0808-98 with Jeti speed control work on Graupner hydro boat/plane?
If not, any suggestions?

If it is a brushless ESC which can cope with the current the Nippy draws.. why shouldn't it work?

I am new to the electrics, so I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

If it is a Jeti brushless ESC rated at at least 8A-10A it will suit that motor.

However - one vital question - what is the maximum prop size which will fit on that plane? That motor is 980Kv and limited to ~8A max... it can spin an 8"-9" prop on 3s and draw no more than the 8A limit, but will not be high enough Kv if you are limited to only a 6"-7" prop.
