Default Brushless Motor Specs are bewildering!

I'm having a real hard time trying to understand all the specs with the brushless motors. They give RPM, voltage etc. but they don't tell you how to determine what motor you'll need for which airplane. The AXI motors tell you how heavy an airplane they can handle so that does make sense but all the others have a long list of specs and i don't know how to equate them to an airplane. There must be info somewhere on this stuff but I haven't been able to find anything.

Would really appreciate some help on this.

Follow the general rule of 75-100 watts per pound. Watts is Amps X Volts.
