Any motor with a kV of around 900-950 kV and capable of handling around 10 amps of current continously will be a replacement for the Electrifly 950.

Make a list of the motors you find on HobbyKing with the specs I listed above. Provide links to these motors, and if you'd like, I'll recommend one from the list you provide.

Of the two you posted, the closest one to the ElectriFly 950 would be this one...

You need a motor with around a 950-1000KV capable of 150watts or more.

The main issue you are going to have, is the same issue that I'm having with the Electrifly Nieuport XI, which is modifying the motor mount. Great Planes has made their WWI Bipes with specific motor mounts to fit their Rimfire 950 KV motors (Smart) but a pain in the patoot for us cheap guys who want to use a cheapy motor like a Tower pro or Hobbycity motor.

You will have to take into account the motor mount on the Electrifly WWI bipe that you have and realize that you WILL HAVE TO MODIFY THE MOTOR MOUNT.

Now there are a couple of the Rimfire 950KV motors on the classifieds for sale for about $35.00 shipped, which isn't bad for a $50.00 motor.

IIRC, Rimfire motors have an odd mount that uses three screws instead of four. Sigh.

You might want to check out the 400 and 450 size motors at headsuprc as well, eg., Power Up 400 Slofly or Power Up 450 Sport. Good stuff, low prices, fast shipping.

I agree with rafe, HeadsupRC has some great motors and those two in particular are great. But be prepared to do some modifications to the motor mount on the Electrifly WWI in order for any other motor to work other than the recommended setup. Most motors use 4 screws to mount it to the motor mount, but like rafe points out, Rimfire only uses "3".
