Hop-up for the AMX Light Attack Fighter

I would like to hop up my AMX jet from HL. Without changing out the fan which I assume is the typical EDO HL 5-blade, what would be a good motor? I was thinking Wicked EDF Extreme Motor 5400KV because I want to stick with 3-cell packs, which I have a lot of. Would this work? Would I be better off upgrading the fan too. What would be a good fan? And when ordering the motor, what other parts are needed? There are options for a rotor plug, etc., all of which I don't know about but have married fans with motors on my other jets. Any help is appreciated!

Well my suggestion will be to use the Wicked 4800 with the stock fan, that will be about 350-380 watts on a 3S lipo. The 5400 on 3s in that fan is an amp hog and the rpm increase is not that much for the extra amps. I usually tell people to go Wicked 4800 on 3S then to the W4000 for 4S. You want to order the motor with standoff adapter and EDO plug. Here is how to mount the motor in that style fan.
