Help identify this GWS brushless motor?

Hey all,

I got this brushless motor quite awhile ago and I have no idea which model/# it is. I've attached a pick - is possible to identify from the picture? I've got some prop questions I'd like to ask, but don't know which motor it is.

2212 if the part you can see is 18mm to the mount (excl. the smaller part in the middle)

2208 if itīs only 14mm

Well, it looks like I've got a 2212, which rings a bell. The mount isn't a GWS mount, so I'm not sure if the measurements would be the same. The dark barrel part measure 15mm to the mount edge, but there are still a couple of mm below the edge of the mount. The proportions look like the pic of the 2212 as well - the 2208 looks shorter.

Thanks for the help.

As for the prop to use, I was looking at this chart:

I'm using this motor on a slow stick, carrying a camera. Right now I've got 3 cells and an 1180 on it which seems to be kicking in the LVC (pulsing) of my esc.
Looking at the chart, if I want to keep the amps low, I should be using an EP 7060 or 8040. Anybody have experience with this motor, or a suggested prop?
Thanks again for your help.

I use a 9050 HD on a 2212 in my Stearman - seems fine although I don't fly at continuous WOT. It'll certainly be much kinder than the 1180.
