Probably a stupid question ;), but why another motor?

Looked at the ecalc, but this looks quit complicated.

Michel, most important when you choose the motors is to go sure that you are aware of the final weight of you setup. You will probably not only want to take up the copter plus the lipo but sooner or later you will want to put a gimbal on and a camera, maybe second lipo etc.

eclac like mentioned before is a good approach. Another thing you can do is check the motors specs on different websites. Like tiger motors. They have charts were you can see how much A on which voltage their motors need with a specific props and resulting the the trust it generates. Most of the time a good setup is a copter hovering a 50% of its overall thrust !

Also like mentioned before you might not be to happy with to high KV motors resulting in you having to run smaller props and shorter flight times !
