I am pretty sure mine was 2836 with 30A ESC. It came from Hobby King.

I am pretty sure that what it was. I never even tried flying with it (gave the motor away) Now I have a Turnigy C3542 1250kv in it - plenty of power.

The dimensions are the same.

This is what I used:
Turnigy 35-42B 1250kv

I am not sure if you will have to drill new holes in the motor mount or not. More than likely the holes will not line up.

I can take off grass on mine stock, as long as its cut short. Anything taller than the wheel itself it wont get enough speed.

I just got back from a flight from a repair on the front landing gear. It flies really well now. I used a front nose gear from a 40 size nitro plane. added a little extra weight in the front but it seems to fly well anyways.
