Default Help with motor choice for 36" Wing

I am building a 36" foam wing and am trying to make a choice of the following motors.

1. Mega 16/15/4 2300 kv

2. Astroflight 020 2567 kv

3. RCER Warp 4 3 turn 2580 kv

I will be using a Kokam 3 cell 15c 2000 lithium battery with a 6 x 4 APC electric prop.

I already have a 40" wing with a Mega so I am familar with it, but I would like to try something different.

The specs in Moto Calc are pretty close, the Mega specs the best for thrust, while the Astroflight specs the best for lower current draw.

Any other motor suggestions?

I want a very fast wing but don't really want to spendf more than $90 for the motor.
