I have a robocat 270 using a 3s Lipo cc3d flight controller. I want to rebuild it with faster flying speed. Would like to get as close to 100mph speed. It currently has emax 2204 motors. I would like to get suggestions on motor that would give me the speed I am looking for on 3s battery. Also esc suggestions. Thanks any help would be appreciated. Also would like to use 5” props

To get to 100 MPH you need at least 4 cell and 2206 2700kv motors. They will be short flights

If I want to use 3s battery is there a motor other than 2204 I can use to increase speed

It's not the size you need to change, it's the KV. But regardless, you're going to end up puffing your 3S as any motor that'll get you to 100 mph is going to have too much current draw for that battery. You need to go 6S!!!
