I've hear the Eflite DF-15 does well in this airframe. Also the changesun 10 bladed 70mm with around a 2800kv motor for 4S. There is quite an extensive thread on that fan unit. I would consider upgrading the stock ESC if you go with the 10 bladed changesun though. I think the stock ESC is only good for around 45 amps.

Right now I'm actually putting the airframe together. I immediately took out the stock fan/motor based on feedback I read on RCG. I'm putting in a Sapac MB-1 and Sapac fan. Should be a good setup but it's hard to find a Sapac MB-1 motor now.

If you add a 5s on the stock motor you will make this plane the way its supposed to fly , i flew mine on a 3300 5s 30c, and it really made a big difference, ofcourse you have to drop a 60amp esc and a 3000 -3300mah 5s.
The motor can handle 5s.
