Default Want to upgrade my motor on Blitzworks skysurfer

I want to be able to increase the climb rate alot. Its a bit slow climbing right now with stock motor. Has anyone put a larger motor
in this plane and which one would be good for it. Im using a brushed motor in it now with 30amp controller.
What is a good motor to put in it and will fit.

According to the retailer, the Sky Surfer comes with a brushless outrunner.

Being a cast foamy, it's doubtful the mfg changed the airplane when they went to a brushless outrunner. Why not get the mfg's replacement motor and ESC and go with that? They would fit and have a matching prop as well.
