Default Edge 540 to Glow ?

Hey all how are you . I have an Great Planes Edge 540 that is currently electric, But I am dying to make it GLOW !! I have done this to a few plane before but is has been a while .

Would a OS .10 work out ok for this plane ? or do you think it would be under powered ( 7x4 prop )

If so , what glow engine would work good on this .10 size plane ?

I think a .10 would be pretty marginal. A .15 would be better suited such as the Magnum XLS 15. 8 x 4 or 8 x 5 prop.

Thanks , the electric prop for this is a 10x7 , so that's why I was curious in the 10 or 15 would have the power ! it's a huge decrease

I would be thinking more like a .25 or .32 size motor for this plane. Or a .45 to .54 fourstroke.
