Good replacement Brushless Motor for Wilga 2000

So far I really like the Plane but almost lost it due to in flight Motor failure.
With almost no specs on the workings of this Plane and Hundreds of Motors out there, which one is the right one?
The only specs I have are that the speed control is rated at 18amps, has a 3 Cell Li/Po Batt and an 8X6 3 Blade Prop, no other specs are given.
I've looked at allot of Motors and just can't figure it out. I'd hate to spend $80.00 on a Motor that won't work either because it's too small, big or the RPM's are wrong.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
