NTM 35-30 12x6 - 11.1v - 266w - 26A UNFORTUNATELY, that motor is back ordered. Also, it is a 3 hole bolt pattern on back. So what is the hole pattern on the front? 3 holes? No holes?
The motor below from HK almost matches ours except for the motor mount and shaft. The Amps are only 1 off, so most likely it will be a great substitute. Should you or I order it? LOL.

The NTM might run a little hot with a 12x6 according to ecalc, but it should be fine as long as you don't fly WOT most of the time:
The front has a 4 holes pattern, so mounting should be ok, I already have one of these motors, once I get the plane I'll verify if it's a drop in.
As for the other motor, looks good too, go ahead and order one.
BTW, the groove in the shaft is for a probably for a retaining clip, you might have lost it when the original shaft snapped.
