Could somebody tell me which Align motor I should purchase for my RC Aerodyne AS350 700 size Heli?

The manual calls for a 500KV motor with a 6mm output shaft, but how much more KV should I go?
I'm looking at either between the 700mx 510KV, 750mx 530KV or the 750mx 450KV. I'm looking for a good fit on the bolt alignment to the mechanics as well as power. All three of these motors have the 30mm bolt spacing which is what the mounting block on the heli is.

I will be going 12s with a 120amp speed controller.

Any other motor recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks, Jim

P.S this will be my first electric build.

Well, I took a good guess, since I didn't get a response back. I purchased the Align 700MX 510KV motor from Amain Hobbies, they had it in stock at a good price.

Which one!!!!
I just saw you post.. you would have gotten some responses if you had posted in the scale section...Oh Well!!!
BUT with that said, I would say that you did well with your selection... the 510 should put you right in the sweet spot...
