I think the issue is that there's a massive thread of nothing but skywalker setups.. check that and I guarantee you'll find what you're looking for.

4s is the way to go with 980kv motor with 9x6 prop. if sticking with 3s i would go with 1250kv motor with 9x6 prop.

I have read that post but there is only like 4 motors talked about and im kinda sure that what they post is what they started with insted of what they have found to work best.

I have a 1020 kv now that was on my old plane. I may try it out untill the 1400 kv gets shiped to me.

The Skywalker 1680 and 1900 should use the same motor selection. I have both and power required is the same.

This Skywalker 1680 thread produced over 600 responses with "motor" as a search criteria. Plenty of info on motors and props.

Then you didn't really read the thread.
The SW electronics thread was started more than a year after the SW was released. .
It's full of well proven setups and plenty of proof for why they work. I count 7 motors on the
first page, and 17 overall in flying planes.

Moxie 980
Turnigy 3536 1400
Scorpion SII-3008-1220
BEVRC 980
Scorpion SII-3014-890
HK SK 3480 1100
Scorpion SII 3014-1220
Tunigy 3636b 1400
Turnigy L3015A-1000
Turnigy 3636 1450
Turnigy 3542 1000
G Force 36-36 1250
NTM 36-36A 1400
BPHobbies 2815-6 1410
KEDA 3636 1450
Scorpion SII-3020-780
PowerUp 15 Sport 1000

Any of those would work in the 1900. I just wouldn't plan on the 1900 being a speed demon
and choose a motor accordingly. Generally speaking <1000kv is used with 4S setup,
and >1000kv is used with 3S setups. There are exceptions both ways.
