Help finding a large motor

Need ideas for a motor in the 500g - 600g range that can turn a 17" prop around 60amps or less on an 8S battery.

The plane is a Phoenix Edge 540 .91 size (65" wingspan) that weights 11lbs.

I'd like to buy one ASAP, any ideas on one that will work well?

Not sure if they meet all your requirements.

For 8s and 17" x 12, an Axi 5330/18, 650 g 259 rpm /V would be around 50A.
The 5325/20 is 575g and should draw about 60A.
Hacker A60-5S is 595g, and about 60A with a 17x10
There are Turnigy G160 650g 245 or 290 rpm/V that should also meet your requirements

I have this exact airplane set up for electric. I have a Motrofly 4325-380 turning a 19x10 (I think that is what it is, would have to look tomorrow) APC propeller on 6s. Plane has unlimited vertical performance. I get at least 6 minutes out of the 6s 5000mah battery, although I could probably get 7 minutes but I don't like to push my batteries that hard.

For $169 with free shipping from Tower at the moment, this airplane is a steal. I am going to order another one just to have a spare.
