Default Project Goosinator

Hey guys so I am trying to build a "Goosinator" for my uncle. this is my first time doing anything with a propeller and need suggestions on motor/ esc combos and what propeller i should use? I am also trying to keep the total price of electronics under 200$.
Here is a video of the actual product that im trying to make: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=junuoSsHqks

A fun toy but it isn't going to keep the geese away from a golf course. A 12 gauge stuffed with a three inch T shot works quite well though. Well, not really for long but I always saw more geese on a golf course then I did in the marsh. When you asked the course manager about popping a few in the morning before the course opened up they wouldn't go for it though. My partner and I asked several managers but they would rather piss and moan about the problem instead of letting us come out a couple times a week.
OK It's just a float plane without the wing and the floats moved forward a bit so the motor will depend a lot on the weight. Shouldn't require much to pull it around. Does have a healthy rudder on it. If you bought plans they will give you a motor/engine size selection.
As a practical tool it's pretty stupid but it looks like fun.
