I'm planning on using the stock motor to start off with. According to the Bixler mods thread, it can make over 800 grams of thrust on a 3-cell battery using 6x4 prop, while only drawing about 12 amps. That should be heaps for my needs.
I have a spare 30A ESC lying around I'm planning to use, since the kit doesn't include one.
If you're looking for a motor/ESC combo that has a bit of punch, people seem to be having a lot of success with the Turnigy 2826 2200kv motor (link)
and the Turnigy Plush 30A ESC (link)
I've been using that same motor on my ME-163 Komet and it's been great. If you want even more power, the motor can handle a 4-cell battery and the performance is spectacular (but you'll need a larger ESC to handle the increased power).
