That link is for the 30 inch Tucano. For the 45" Tucano I used an AXI2820/10, 3s1p 4500mah Lipo and 10x7 prop, which gives good performance. Mine is fitted with the tricycle undercarriage. Cheaper motors are available than the AXI, but that's a straight drop in for the motor mounting plate that was fitted.

Plenty to read about the Tucano in this forum section, Douglas.

A .25 cu in two stroke would be more than sufficient.
