Best thing is to wait and measure the motor and it's mount, find something from there. It probably takes longer but it's better than buying twice.
I've wondered about those, curious how big of a battery you can get in there for really long flights, maybe carry a wireless camera too.

OIC

you could get a BP21 on there w/fw mount. It'll give you ~20 oz of thrust on a 8040 prop. If you need a brushless motor/esc combo pm me
