Tyhoon 3d direct drive motor modification

Hi guys!!
I am getting really tired of the gearbox in my typhoon 3d. Every prop strike, the cheap nylon mount brakes, and the gears strip. I love my typhoon and fly it 30 minutes a day. I need a motor that will turn a 12 by 8.75 propeller, and will be a good fit in my typhoon. I am using a 2250 3s lipo. I want a motor that will turn the big propeller, is light weight, and will give me 10+ minutes of flying time. Thanks!!
P.S. If anyone has done this please give me some pictures thanks

I'd look around on the headsuprc website, they have thrust and amperage stats for their motors, so just weigh your plane, and find one with around 2x thrust.
