Perhaps a TD .020 would be a good solution? Light, and very powerful.

Another thing to consider with smaller engines is smaller
Props. Which create much less prop wash over the control
Surfaces.
So nightmare scenario,-
Large plane which by virtue of small engine travels slowly
Through the air, without much prop wash = sluggish response
To controls as well as lacking fun factor.
IMO
Huh...

Starting with the fact that I know NOTHING about electric motors, I read that a 100 watt lekkie is equal to an .049, no idea what the wattage of the original motor in this model was, but I'm sure someone here will know.

Just my contribution

I have found .049's to have the around the same power as 400/450 size motors.

I would use 9g servos, unless the 8g you are talking about have metal gears. Make sure they don't twitch/flutter!

The Tee Dee is about the best Cox at over 75 Watts Wilf.
I think the bees vary from 45 up to about 60.
I dout it was the sort of model anyone ever put at watt meter on but I could be wrong.
Huh...

It depends....

I use these in my .049 Cub. They are high torque.

Those servos are designed for lightweight park fliers. I would not use them.
