what new motor for my Aerohawk?

Hi! I have a problem whit my aerohawk. I cant get it off the ground! I tried for a looong time now but i just cant get it up. My old motor broke down on my first fligt so i bougt a new jarma pro 280ce motor.

The spec are:
Rpm: 29400
Rated voltage: 6V
Operating voltage: 3,0-7,2 V
Block current intake: 8A
Best output: 58%
Length 34,3 mm
Diameter: 24mm
Masurment: 9mm
Motor shaft: 2mm
Weight: 46g

I thougt this motor would lift my bird but it dident. Dont know why? I use a 10 tooth pinion.

So im considering a new motor. Whitch will get my bird up and flying?

The Speed 300 6V
6,0 volt, 29000 varv, 5 amp, 30,8 mm längd ,diam 24,4 mm ,axel 2, mm 50 gram


The Speed 300 7,2V

MIG 280 6V RACING , new Cu Commutator,hooks, vetnt holes
MEGA new 280 RACE 3,6 - 8,4 volt
wheight 50 gram
celles 6-7
Axel 2,0 mm
Dont know anymore about this motor :/ but it looks the best

Or maby ill get a brushless motor and i wonder if the MEGA ACn motors are any good?
There is alot of diffrent versions of this motor and am wondering whitch is the best for the aerohawk?
Is it the 16/7/8, 16/7/7, 16/7/5, 16/7/12 or the 16/7/17 the best?

The specs can be found here

What motor should I get then?
