Please suggest me a good motor from here for my hexa

I am making a hexa , trying to keep it as light as possible .

Payload will be onboard video transmitter, GoPro cam and camera stabilization mount with servos..

Payload is only what I said, my main moto is the flight time..

I have 11x4.7 APC slow Flyer props in stock and 3 x 5000mah battery

I was going through the RCTimer website, but I am getting little confused selecting one..
Please help me out.

I see few motors there of same Kv but sizes are different but can drive same size props.. tname=

if there is any other motor you know in RCTimer here which will give me more flight times with the 11x4.7 APC props, please suggest me that.

4s or 3s

You want to look for some 2216s or 2814s depending in weight.

Use ecalc multirotor to test you gear before buying.

Kda 20-22L would be good on 3s

I have some 5000mah 3cell batteries

I am currently using KDA20-22L motors from HK..They are good enough. but when I calculate in ecalc I get lesser hover time with KDS 20-22L motors
