Default 380-400 brushed = what brushless

If not for this problem when buying brushless, converting the brushed power to brushless, I propbably would have purchased two brushless sets for my sail planes. Please if you can fill me in with information on how to do the conversion I would appreciate your help.

Some brushless motors actually say "for SPEED 380 and 400 applications". Here are some examples: -- for use with a gearbox only

This would be an outrunner conversion from a SPEED 400 or 480:

Really the weight of the plane is the main factor I use when looking at a brushless setup. Most brushless motors will give you a weight range.
