What us the kv if the motor and what is the gear ratio? You use that to find prop speed and then select the appropriate kv direct drive motor to run with the same prop and give you about the same power and performance.

The 2826 seems to be a perfect substitute for a geared 400. The weight and Power of it looks fit for a plane of that size.

I do not Think that you will recognise any problems with torque. The absolute majority of planes run without gearbox today with brushless compared to the opposite when the brushed motors reigned.

I going to go against the trend here and suggest the larger 900kv motor because with it you could use ten or eleven inch props with out issue.
