Hi,

I'm new to QWW as I just purchased (but haven't received) a NIB QWW Sweet Sixteen V2 kit. I'm wondering, for a new owner, which motor, ESC, and electronics would be good for this model? I'm only looking for good quality, no extreme high end equipment.

Also, is the Sweet Sixteen a discontinued model? I can't seem to find it on the qww.com website. Can parts still be found from the manufactor? Thanks in advance. From what I've read, the helicopter seems to be of very good quality. I look forward to hearing from other owners,

Congratulations on your purchase! The QuickHeli web site is a bit hard to negotiate, but everything is there, if you know where to look. While the Sweet16 V2 has been discontinued, it does share many components with other heli's in the QuickHeli line. So parts is not going to be an issue, as long as you go to the source. There is only one store in the entire US, in Coopersburg, PA. You will not find any parts locally. If you go to their web page, scroll down on the left side there is a link that says "instructions". I am not sure if you have the manual, but if not, this is the link:

http://www.quickworldwide.com/Sweet...v2%20Manual.pdf

This should fill you in on most of the details of what you need to complete the model. I would suggest you contact QuickHeli directly, as they are very helpful.

As for parts, many of the parts are interchangeable, and so none of the parts are out of stock at QuickHeli. If you write to them, you will get the part. I would take an inventory of all that is in the box and make sure everything is there before you start. It can be very frustrating to start a model, and find out a bolt or nut, or a washout arm is missing. Once you have assembled all the essential components, including motor, ESC, servos, gyro, etc.; then start the build. Contact QuickHeli (their e-mail contact information is on their web page) and they will fill you in on the best choices for motors and ESC's, most of which they stock as well.

This is a link to their parts list for all of their models. It is in the form of a grid, and it is quite easy to locate the particular part for your model. As you will notice, many of the parts are shared between models in the same size class. I have an older EP10 (over 6 years old) and they still have parts for it!

A word of caution, you must be adept at putting the helicopter together. The instructions are not the greatest, and assume you know quite a bit before hand.

Good luck, and hope to hear from you on your maiden flight.

Gamb,

Thank you for your advice and information. I will look up the information you gave me in the next few days. I anticipate this build will be a welcome challenge. Thanks again,

It is very hard to locate the information on the QuickHeli web site, but here is another link for your Sweetie 16.

http://www.quickheli.com/SW16_build.htm

It has pictures of what the helicopter should look like.
It also has specification for the motor, ESC, batteries, etc.

Hello RC400,

The heli you got is a little bit older, but you can still get any of the parts you need as Gamb said. If you have any trouble with assembly just give us a ring here at the shop and we will get you straightened out. The newer helis are easy to build, as with anything, stuff gets better over time.

Sincerely,
Jon Yuhas

QWW

Jon,

Thanks for the reply. It really means a lot when the owner of a company reads, and responds quickly to customers asking for help on a forum such as this one. I really believe I'm going to enjoy the build after building all of the other plastic helicopters. I'm sure you'll hear from me as my build is progressing. Thanks again,

RC400

Electronics choices

How do you plan to equipt your machine? What TYPE of flyer are you?

It is important to start out with a lower headspeed & increase it over time, less crashes & will also make you a better flyer...

I am taking out my Outdo V2 12s at 2150 RPM this is a monster....

Spring is finally here.

Equipment

I've just received the helicopter today and I'm excited!

I'm wonder which motor to use. The batteries I have most of are 6s lipos and would like to use them. The motors I have are as follows,

- Scorpion HK 4025 910kv

- Scorpion HK 5025 440kv

- Castle Creations inrunner 1717/1y 1580kv

- Castle Creations outrunner 3434 1100kv

- Kontroniks Tango 45-08

- Century 600+ 1100kv

Which one would work on 6s lipos? I realize I can double them and run in line for a 12s lipo but I don't want that much power or high head speed. Thanks!

Hi Keith,

The Sweetie & EP 8 series are based on 8MM main shaft. Since you want to use 6S I would suggest either of the 1100 KV outrunner you have that use a 5.0M pinion shaft. Depending on your batteries will help determine what pinions from 10-13 tooth and desired head speed

You 910V you could use as well on 8S 20-25c lipos
You 440 KV would be great on our new OUTDO V2 12s However just too big for a 8MM main shaft.

Motor

Irwin,

Thanks again for the fast response. I'll try the outrunner motor. Maybe I'll save the 440kv motor for a later helicopter!
