Need some BL suggestions

I have a 60" wing span powered glider w/ailerons and want to go brushless. This one came with the 600 size motor in it. I'd also like to use the same motor to power a balsa sport flyer in the future, perhaps in the 40-48" w/s range.
Empty weight of the glider will be about 18oz before I put motor and batteries in,estimated.
What brushless for a mild, not hot liner? I've looked at the MEGA,AXI and JETI, want to go Direct drive on6-8 batteries.

Balsa Flies Better!

You need two different motors

Umm, you're probably going to need two different motors for those two applications you outlined. Zb's rec for the glider sounds like a good one, but it won't be so hot in the future aerobat. Yet if you get a large enough motor for the future aerobat- you'll have too much weight for your glider.
