For my 58" Edge I'll be using Extreme Flight's Torque Revolution 4016T/500 MKII, which is good for 60A. cont. (80A. peak) and 1200+ watts on 5S or 6S. Recommended props include 15x7E, 15x8E, 16x7E, 16x8E (wood props).

Maybe some of the other guys in here can tell you what they've had success with, but right off Hacker motors come to mind and are also worth considering.

BTW, check out the Extreme Flight's EU distributors listings if you're interested in trying the Torque motor:
