If you want to go with the motor recommended for this plane by Hyperion, the Scorpion 4025-16 with the Scorpion 40mm Cross Mount which has the 58mm bolt hole pattern.
For me, I'm going with the Scorpion S-4035-380kv on both 6s and 8s.
Most of the planes in the photo I just posted have Hacker motors and I have never had a problem with one over heating....And... I personally will never use a Scorpion motor as long as they use collet prop adapters...I have seen too many fail and people have to go chasing props, spinners and prop adapters out across a flying field after having to land with no power.... That said....the Hyperion motor that is recommended by Hyperion is made by Hacker, not Scorpion.....
