The recommended setup is an Eflite Power 32 motor, either on 4S 3200mAH with a 12x8 prop as the sport setup at around 600W, or on 5S 2700mAh with a 10x10 for speed at about 750W.

That motor has Kv=770 and weighs 200g.

A very close equivalent that I have used and been happy with is the Turnigy G32-770

Good candidate from GS is http://www.giantshark.co.uk/xyh4250-...-p-405282.html Pretty close in spec to the recommended motor, although Kv is a little higher. Several good reviews in the power range you'd want. I'd start with a 12x8 on 4S and check with a wattmeter.

Note that you will probably have to modify the x-mount or fabricate a mounting plate to match the eflite mount spaced holes in the firewall, and you may also have to space the motor from the mount/firewall to match the cowling
