Re-purposing motors

I wrecked my quadcopter and still have three good motors and 20 amp ESCs. These here: http://www.valuehobby.com/multicopters/multicopter-motors-and-escs/mr2212-motor-set.html

Wondering if these would work on any of the swapables and what kind of prop options I could use. Have a ton of 10" slow fly props on hand but those appear to big. Could I use a more aggressive, smaller prop on these?

Assembling my Batbone now with different parts. Have a Bixler 2 coming in from HobbyKing that should be here this week. It's an obsession at the moment. I have about as much fun assembling and figuring out everything as I do flying and filming. The quadcopter was my first RC anything and it lasted a couple months. Now getting into planes.
Thanks

Should be fine with those, just check them out with a few different props and a wattmeter. The wattmeter will give you actual current draw and save you from guessing. I always use mine on new setups, just to make sure...
