Ok, from a previous model I still have a 28mm/4750kv Feigao motor left over (3808408S). I'm toying with the idea of sticking a Cobri gearbox in front of it, hanging a 12-13" prop on it and sticking it in the nose of a 50" Tiger Moth (on 2S).

MotoCalc has the combination at a little under 300W, is that enough to fly the plane comfortably? I'm not looking for a lot of speed (have a Ultimate Bipe with a Park 480 for that).

Any possible WWI ARF's I should consider for this power plant?

I have seen some models from GreatPlanes/Electrifly. Although, I am basing my recommendation stricktly on looks...
