Default Need help picking motor for smaller profile jet

I've made these profile jets from rc.tomhe.net and was thinking about scaling down some of his plans to come up with a 20 inch wingspan jet.

I have three 2s1p 850mah 15c lipos that i was thinking about using for this project, but not sure what motor/esc to use.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help,
Steven

Hey Steven. I use this one here for my Yardbird F-22:

You can also use the Dualsky which is a bit more in price but a fine motor:

These are great little motors if building her as a pusher. I also use a 25A ESC for piece of mind and a 3s 1500mah Li-po.

You can also talk to Jeff from HeadsUp RC:

Just tell him what batteries you have and he will direct you to a setup that meets your needs. he's a great guy to deal with. I hope this helps a bit.

The towerpro bell type motors work really well for me. Ewos F16 http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=283280
and the icarus su27 http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8752 with one, 30 amp esc and 1300 3s lipo. Very powerful motor for these types of plane.
See http://www.giantcod.co.uk/product_in...a50fdb9e9b7dca
for what I mean.
