What aftermarket motor for planes like parkzone P51

Hi,

I am fairly new in the world of electric flying. I would like to build the P51 parkzone from the spare parts so I can select the electronic components myself and use my own radio gear (hitec) since it does not come without the receiver. I researched what kind of motor I should use and I read 450 form. Would something like that work? http://www.hobbypartz.com/75m36-opti...20-1380kv.html or this one: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=2112
If not, what do you recommend?

Thank you for your help,

Le fou

Thanks for your replies. Where do you find a motor mount? I looked at http://www.customrcparts.com but the operating length does not fit with the spec of the engine you recommended. Can I make my own motor mount out of plywood?

Thanks,

Go to Heads-up-RC and tell them what plane you are looking to power up. They'll give you a range of motors/ESC/props to use. They also sell a terrific aluminum mount.
