Default G-Force Motors Good or Bad?

Does anyone have any thoughts on the G-Force G25 Motor from Value Hobby. Thinking of using one on 51" 60Oz Plane using 4s lipo's.

I've been running a G-Force G32 in my Ultra Stick 25e with no problems. The Ultra Stick is about the same weight as yours. I get ballistic performance ,unlimited vertical with a 13x6.5 APC e prop and 4S lipo. I'm sure some of the "you get what you pay for" guys will chime in soon. I'm happy with it. Don't know your flying style, but if you want a little extra punch get the G32.

I'm completely knocked out by the GForce packs. After trying the 1600 and 1800, I've decided to get one in every size. 20C discharge rocks!
My CellPros, TPs, and Polyquests don't hold a candle to these.
The down side is that they are thicker because they have air spaces between each cell. The upside is that they come back from an aggressive flight cool as a cucumber. Cool batteries last longer. I expect these to last a long, long time.
And the price? I can't even believe it!

Default G32 Geforce motor

I have the following nitro plane and am converting it to electric (nitroplanes.com/nilosuaetr40) (around 5lbs with fuel). I have the G32 Geforce motor, 50 amp ESC, 3200 mah 3s lipo. Should this perform ok or will I need to get a 4s battery?
