Parkzone Archer, Motor Upgrade from stock 370 1300kv

Hey guys,

I bent the shaft on my Archer attempting to land on a sufficiently windy day (who am I kidding, I should have stayed on the ground that day). I am looking for a replacement motor that would provide more power on the stock 2s battery and 10A esc power system. Could I stick with the stock 8.25x5.5 prop?

I wouldn't mind upgrading the esc too, but I would rather stick to the stock 2s packs. Does anyone have suggestions how I should go about upgrading the power system?

I was thinking of grabbing this motor http://www.wholesaletrains.com/Detai...p?ID=200410845 but I am unsure if it will provide any benefit over the stock motor.

That's a good motor but I don't think it will give you any more power than the original.

You could increase the prop pitch but that will probably mean getting a higher rated ESC.
