Need input on replacement for my old favorite motor

Well my favorite motor for my roughly 800mm sized airplanes /(1300mah packs) was the Turnigy 2826B. 50g 1350kv 100-150 watts

Good price and they are sturdy and the quality is decent. with most the thing I need Hobbyking is out of stock..So..I'm left looking elsewhere.

At hobbypartz I think I found a suitable replacement. The Exceed Rocket 1420 10turn.

They do claim high quality. I'm looking for a confirmation on the quality. I seriously don't mind spending twice up to 3 times what I paid for the turnigy motor if its better quality. Any other suggestions I'd be happy to take. I don't want a flimsy motor with bad quality and you can bend the shaft by looking at it wrong.

I wont be swinging a prop bigger than 8" it doesn't work well on 800mm warbirds. 8" is max size prefer 7". I can't justify spending over 25$ on the motor. so thats absolute maximum I'd consider.

Isn't that pushing that little motor just a bit too hard?

Certainly you could reduce amp draw by using a 7x4 if you want to, but the motors didn't get excessively hot during testing.
