good alternative for AXI 2208/34 OUTRUNNER GOLD

Looking for a good alternative to the above motor. So far I have found the E-flite park 370 as the closest competitor. Any suggestions? Looking for something that has similar efficiency.

Parkzone's got a F4U out, with the same power setup and it comes with a 3 blader. Would look really nice on the T-28.
