What 10lb plane? On weight I could suggest 26cc petrol.

There is no real rule of thumb, it depends a bit on the model aswell and if you intend scale flight or hard aerobatics, but the below can give you an idea:

90-1.20 sized planes --> 15-20cc petrol
1.20-1.40 sized planes --> 26-30cc petrol
1.60-1.80 sized planes --> 50cc petrol

and up....

A minimal technical knowledge is required for this hobby; please ensure you know the differences between up and down.
