Default ESC help needed for Pelikan Decathlon

I have a two or three year old decathlon purchased from hobby lobby. I think its the same as the Pelikan model. The ESC is shot (480 motor runs on direct current) and the stock ESC seems backordered forever. I replaced it with a 25A brushed motor ESC I had, but the motor won't attain high enough RPM for flight. Is the amperage wrong or is something else going on here?

Many thanks for your input!

(MODS- sorry if this is the wrong forum! So much to learn!)
