need help with finding a new motor for AJ slick

Okay so something is funky with my 480 1020KV on my Slick
So i am trying to figure out what kinda motor to replace it with

here is all the data I have figured out

Park 480 30amp continuous
87 grams
12x7 prop

I had two different motors on my 1st slick
Scorpion 3008-28 motor
380watts 31 amps 8400rpm
with a 11x5.5

I then had a 3014-16
43 amps

but I don't know where my data is for what prop i ran on it back then I have the data from another plane with totally wrong prop

I know the 3008 flew it okay but it didn't have much pull out from a hover a lot like the park 480 but the 3014-16 had WAY to much power really I never went to full throttle on down line cause being scared of flying the plane apart

I was looking on

at the EP buddy motors but not sure any of them would be enough power.
I know lot of these turnigy motors are cheap and work well just need something that swing a 11x7 or 12x6 prop and have plenty of pull out, to be honest I have never weigh my AJ slick I have now my last one was at
36.4 ounce with the 3008 motor

If anyone has anything that might work let me know be nice if work out a trade since I am so low on money right now.
