Default Source for info on power output of electric motors

My intention is to design an experimental model around the Motor Set for the Heli-Max 100 CX Helicopter or equivalent. I need to know the power output of the motor(s) so that I can size the rotors of my design appropriately. I sent an email to their product support team and after having gotten no reply in over a week, I gave them a call to ask. They couldn't find the information I was requesting, so here I am looking for advice on where to find information on that set of motors or equivalents.
I've searched the forum for hints on where to find power output for electric motors typically used in RC helis but didn't find any. My understanding is that small electric motors used in RC aircraft are typically rated in oz. in of torque.
Thanks in advance.

Excellent advice by Lucien Miller, he does all the measurements and propcharts himself, he knows what he is talking about:
