need help with finding a new motor for AJ slick

Okay so something is funky with my 480 1020KV on my Slick
So i am trying to figure out what kinda motor to replace it with

here is all the data I have figured out

Park 480 30amp continuous
87 grams
12x7 prop

I had two different motors on my 1st slick
Scorpion 3008-28 motor
380watts 31 amps 8400rpm
with a 11x5.5

I then had a 3014-16
1127KV
43 amps
122grams

but I don't know where my data is for what prop i ran on it back then I have the data from another plane with totally wrong prop

I know the 3008 flew it okay but it didn't have much pull out from a hover a lot like the park 480 but the 3014-16 had WAY to much power really I never went to full throttle on down line cause being scared of flying the plane apart

I was looking on http://epbuddy.com/index.php?main_pa...coo07vdodln2b6

at the EP buddy motors but not sure any of them would be enough power.
I know lot of these turnigy motors are cheap and work well just need something that swing a 11x7 or 12x6 prop and have plenty of pull out, to be honest I have never weigh my AJ slick I have now my last one was at
36.4 ounce with the 3008 motor


If anyone has anything that might work let me know be nice if work out a trade since I am so low on money right now.

Cheap enough if it really has the same power. I like to see some prop data, If i get some extra money might have to get one just to try it out, got a foamy that needs a motor also

Give me enough time and I'll let you know as I bought this for the Leader 480. Reports are that it's like a Park 480 plus maybe 20% more power.

The omega's do appear to be a good buy. However, for his budget minded purposes I imagine the one from altitude is a good buy.

According to this charts looks like this motor might not be the best 3d motor. It should be great for the leader though where I prefer more speed over torque (ie: small prop but more pitch). It appears to have it's peak in the "sport" range I'm looking for on the Leader.
