Agree, now you are looking at a useful motor for the Stryker.
GG has some great suggestions.

It's an outrunner. It might work with some modification. Never tried it. The brushed motor is an inrunner (type). That's why lots of folks use an inrunner. You just picked the wrong one.
For alignment if you sight down the shaft the line should come out the middle of the nose.

Maybe buy this?
Black Mantis B2836 2200kv Inrunner Brushless Motor

There is one other thing you could do with that motor to the Stryker, put it in a ducted fan and mount that. Essentially they are a can with a tiny multi-blade prop turning really fast. Some folks love 'em, others think they are just noisy. They also often eat a lot of amps so your other electrics may not be up to it.

The motor is a bolt on. Case bolts to the back of the mount on mine.
Added bonus is mounting the motor this way is that the prop sits further back from the fuselage, which quiets it up.

Hang on, let me run out to my truck, always keep the Stryker in it.

Here you go, sorry phone camera shot, but you can see how it's mounted to the C mount.

I think that Hobbycity motors are great and not very heavy.If you use a 4x4 and this battery http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...00mAh_3S1P_30C_ and one of these motors http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...hless_Inrunner and one of these escs http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...eed_Controller it will go about 95 mph.I use one of these http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...hless_Inrunner and a 6x5.5.

Check this site out. I am finishing up their Delta 3/C now. I don't think I'll be flying my Stryker much. Watch the videos, pretty impressive.

i'm sure those planes wont be as crash friendly as a stryker. . add a few oz. of epoxy fixes and its time for a new airframe. not with a stryker! i'm sanding,repainting and upgrading my 1st stryker and i'm sure it will fly as well as a new airframe.that foamie won't last 300 flights,have a total re-fit and fly another 300 flights!! and a NEW STRYKER AIRFRAME IS $25 they want $80 for that foamie!!

The only planes as tough as the Stryker are the Multiplex foamies and EPP planes. That being said, these planes are made out of 10mm foam (3/8" roughly) not the typical 5 or 6 mm. If/when it breaks, there's enough thickness to make a good repair. A "few oz" of epoxy for repairs, geez the Delta 3/C only weighs around 21 oz to begin with. I didn't use that much epoxy & gorilla glue to build it. I'm surely not going to load it up with several oz of glue for repairs, I'll buy a new airframe. The Delta kit (complete with all you need) is only $50, not sure where you got $80. After flying my stryker for 2 seasons, it's looking like . Buy the time I'd rebuild it, I'd just as soon start fresh with a new airframe that isn't all beat up and stressed out. 300 flights on a piece of foam and it's time to strip the equipment, toss the old foam and but a new hunk of foam.

maybe it's me, but i get a lot of satisfaction in making something old and worn,better than new! its also a challenge not to fatten-up the airframe while improving its strength. and a new paint job can never be a bad thing right?
this is'nt a stryker but you get the idea

jcg
the basic kit for the phoenix WAS $74.95. i rounded up to $80 to include shipping.
thats about 3 STRYKER basic airframes. if you search around in the fourms you can get free plans for very similar parkflyers for free. buy a bundle of blucor foam, $30 for enough to build about 50 models, and your airforce is just a little building and paint away!
