Default IFO Mk3 Motor Mounting? Motor Type?

I'm rebuilding my IFO Mk3 from a recent major whooops. I had an outrunner motor (can't remember the brand that had a long shaft coming out the rear. Wasn't very big at all. Problem was, the motor busted loose and ripped my covering to hell. Also, it wasn't enough motor and it would over-heat to quick. I wanted to be on the gas (electric), all the time, but it would die after a while. Bottom line. I"m looking for an easy Brushless motor to put on my IFO. I don't necessarily need unlimited verticle (would be nice) but I need to stay on a budget (wife imposed). Also, I've lost my instructions and made mod's to my IFO. I added 2 more carbon rods down the length on either side of the center rod. I didn't like the way the servos wobbled so they have some side strength now.

What are some good ways (Pics?) to mount motors on an IFO?

Thanks.
Crusty.

A Feigao brushless motor fits perfectly in a GWS IPS-B gearbox. That gearbox is a stick-mount and thus is easy to attach to an IFO.

Another good motor is the Little Screamer outrunner motor. I make motor mts. from kitchen cutting board. can be cut with a bandsaw. Wrap with kevlar or dental floss to carbon boom and glue with CA.
