At the moment i think the orks are only available with a kit purchase from TPPACKS. I have mine comming. As Fred seems the only one to post his findings it makes sense to follow his lead until there are many more flying.

we can never have too many, can we ?

Do you think a Kontroniks Fun 600-18 motor would work well on the Swift?

600-18 wont work, the kv is too high. You need a motor in the 1000kv range.

This one will probably need a huge pinion.....

$63
.
I guess this kv will be too low (@~670), huh? It only has 50A max but it sure has a nice price.

I want a swift, but the price of the lipos is what is killing it for me.

I could buy so many lipos for my other choppers for the price of just ONE lipo for the swift.

That motor has been used, but is far from the best.

A motor happy at 25-30k is what you need.

I m not looking for the utmost best at everything, since I can't fly like Alan Szabo, neither can allot of us, and if I bought the best of everything I wouldn't be able to afford it, its pointless to me to get something I cant use to its fullest extent. Reminds me of a few people I know bought a full on Sport bike for their first motorbike, something that is capbable of 300kph, they cant ride it like its supposed to be then end up crashing it, luckly they didn't die!!! A total waste!!

When I get more money, I will probably buy something better, right now I would rather spend extra money on more batteries, to fly more.

Fred means it'll run hot and stuff like that. Even a beginner has a better usable heli if your motor is cold.

The Ork 1905/2 has a 1000kv and is just $140. I would go with that first.

I had that before the 1907/1.5 and it did fine.

Ya, thats a good point Fred, I bought this motor slightly used, with a brand new ESC, I got a good deal on it, so thats why I went that way, It should be fine to get me going for a while, and supposed to give good power too. I will report back on it when I fly this thing.

Wedge !

Having run a few of the Megas I would recommend you
wrap that baby in a Kontronic, KK600 heat sink and perhaps
try to use a cooling fan ! Total investment about $25.00

I run a 22/30/3 in my ECO-16 this way.

Though for most of you guys flying the swifts (haven't joined
that group myself, yet) I would think the 22/45/3 would be a
better choice ! About $150.00 from FXaeromodels.

Planning on putting one of these in a Logo 14 within the
next few weeks.

The ground came up and hit me !!!

My Swift has a Mega 22/45/3 in her,runs great,doesnt get hot.
Runs with 16 cells,6S2P,5S2P.10 teeth pinion.
Wrapped a heat sink round it,i had one anyway.Still dont think it would overheat without it.

Hey, guys it got a heatsink already on it, I will keep an eye on the temps, its a 22/30/4. Still haven't got it yet, its supposed to be here this week, its killing me looking at this swift sitting on my bench not being able to fly it.

I have a Neu Motor 1910-1y on order but have'nt got it yet but it's by no means cheap $185 but it should be a good motor for what I want it for. I'm trying to stick with 12 cell nihm and 4s3p lipo that I already have. Hopefully I'll have in the next couple weeks
