Is this a good choice for a motor with this esc on my hawk sky?

I was going to say yes because that was in the replacement parts but looking into it that motor does look like it fits so this would be a better replacement in my opinion...
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=5453 and if your going to order from there there then you should get this ESC http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=6458
Why do you need to replace them?

The screws came loose on the motor mount. The motor flew off hits the plane (only a little mark) the fell to the ground. Now it goes to half throttle and cuts off.

Well I don't own one but this looks like a perfect match to the old one but I guess there are different versions so I'm not sure how your motor mounts in the plane. Maybe a picture and the size of the prop would help? As for the broken motor it sounds like you broke a lead wire, what happens when you hook up a meter to it?

Remember. This motor has to push almost 2 pounds. That's one little motor. I had an Eflite on like that and it was about the same size and the plane wouldn't even move. What type of meter? A watt meter?

I'd rather not order from them. I've had bad experiences with them.

Are you talking the park 180? This is not the same motor... The meter I'm talking about is a multimeter it measures volts, ohms, etc...

For a meter look here, http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=dig...=p3286.c0.m359

As for the motor, I'll leave it like this, for a 2 lb you need something that pulls between 200-300 watts. The usual rule is 100 watts per lb for leisurely flying 150-175 per lb for sport flying so get a motor that mounts with that in mind. Also you will need a higher kv motor to fly on a short prop.2000-3000kv, you should concider a wattmeter to help you decide motor/prop setups.

You said the motor cuts out at half throttle? That happened to me but it wasn't the motor, it was the esc. Maybe when the motor flew off it pulled a wire out of the esc? If you have a spare motor, I recommend hooking it up to the esc and see what happens...
