Default Better motor for PZ Spitfire

Is there a better motor to use on a ParkZone Spitfire that will work with the stock electrics and NiMH battery pack?

no, if you want to get better performance then it would be wise to go with lipo batteries.

the spitfire has the zx10 receiver, you can get a speed control and plug it into the throttle channel of the receiver, allowing you to use the stock TX & RX . Im going to upgrade my spitfire to lipo/brushless soon.

Default PZ set-up upgrade

What power set-up are you thinking about for an upgrade?

Well, I do not want to go lipo, I have 6 of the 10.8V Nimh packs and two chargers for my Spit that I want to continue using. I was just wondering if there was a better motor to use than the $10 brushed cheapie. Not looking for a big power boost, maybe a little more powerful or efficient for longer flight times.
