This would be a great motor for the Plane listed above, you will need the extra power to fly off of water with Floats, this motor will give you a better than 1.5 to 1 Power ratio, use a 3 cell 2200 mah lipo of about 40C and a 10x6 prop, for max Thrust, use a 40 amp esc,
With a Brush motor you may or may not be able to get off of the water
