Default suggestions for an affordable brushless gws replacement

I have bought my second gws corsair and would like to set it up with a brushless motor. I do NOT want lipo at this point but would like to know what is a good motor/esc combo to go to with a minimum of hassle/modification/cost (in that order). Thanks for any input!

The e-flight Park 370 and a Castle Creations PHX 25 should handle any prop you want on that. Several local hobby shops have them here but I don't see them on any of the on-line stores I go to.

I see that Horizon Hoppy is offering tthe brushless/esc combo in the new catalog and was also thinking of the same thing. Do you know which motor is the best for a corsair 370-"C" replacement? I would like more oomph out of the motor without having to buy Lipo's and a new charger. Thanks in advance for any replys.

The best is always a matter of opinion but the park 370 I mentioned earlier should do the trick. You may need an adapter plate but they will mount in the GWS gearbox. Another good motor is the Himax with the gearbox as found here:
