Motor choices - help!

Hi there,

I'm hoping someone can help me out with a motor choice - there's so much available;

I have a clone f450 with SimonK 20a ESC's. I have some 8x4.5 and 10x4.5 props. I also have some 925kw crud motors that I'm testing with - but they're hard to balance, the prop adapters are the clamp style ones. They'll do for now, but I'd like to upgrade.

I run FlightPower 4S 2600 50c batteries.

In any case; I'm looking at the sunnysky 2216-11 (800kv) or 2216-10 (900kv) motors, but I'm not sure which is best. I can see that the 900kv motor restricts me to an 8" or 9" prop according to ecalc. If I go to a 10x4.5 I get power issues.

I plan to stick a gopro on this rig at some point too.

Which motor would you guys recommend given I'm running a 4S setup?

Also - I see spyder frame plates for the DJI 450 arms around RCGROUPS, where do I get these?
