On the options they also list similar to an Eflite Power 32 (770 KV probably best flow on 4S) and and Eflite Power 46 (probably best flow on 5S). I think the airplane would fly fine on all of those. Turnigy is fine. Cheaper is better. Please give me your price shipped. Can PayPal.

Here is a lot of reading info on electrifying this size model. Might be something useful for you. As others in this thread have indicated, buy new if you can. Prices on a lot of those motors and ESC's have really dropped since brushless motors became popular about 10 years ago.
