I've add thed the 620 boom and belt to my full metal 550. I'm gonna ran this motor with a 10T pinion with using 5 and 6 cell packs (not together)

Hoping to get a HS of 2100-2200 with 600mm blades. Anyone have experience with this motor?

I'm also gonna use the align 75A esc, I hope it will support it?

It may have a KV that is too high - what is its' KV rating?

The century swift 620 can run on the century 600A plus 1100kV rating so i would imagine u shouldnt have a problem depending on how its geared but i have been know to be wrong before and if it can work on a t-rex 600 there is no reason why it wouldnt work on a swift

esc might be border line

Mabey one day i will actually land one of these things !!

A 1220KV motor with a 10T pinion using a 6S (22.2V) pack will give you too high a head speed using a 100% ESC setting.

1220 x 22.2 = 27084 motor speed

The maingear has 96T so a 10T pinion would give you a gear ratio of 9.6/1

Considering a good 90% system efficiency your head speed would be:

27084/9.6 x 90% = 2539 !!!

You would be better with a 9T pinion for a gear ratio of 10.67

27084/10.67 x 90% = 2284 ! ...then run your ESC at 90% at the top and you would get a good and safe 2056 head speed.

I would suggest using the metal head (as used in their 620SE Swift)when swinging 600mm blades at such high a rotor speed.

The 5 cell would work out better on the 10T at the most efficient 100% ESC setting:

1220 x 18.5 = 22570

22570/9.6 x 90% = 2116

I'm planning on setting the throttle curve lower than normal to compensate for the higer KV on this motor.

I'm targeting 2100 - 2200 HS for both 5s and 6s packs (using stunt 1 for 5s and stund 2 for 6s on my DX7)

My 550 is full metal head and tail (minus tail blade grips)

I'm hoping the higer head speed will make up for the +10/-10 pitch throws. I can't seem to get anything past that range?

Also maybe try some wide cord blades too

Thanks guys

Should work then.

I had no problem setting my Swift 550SE with the stock head at +12/-12. The geometry in the all metal head must be different.

Did you have to mod anything? I already trimmed the guide pins. I haven't trimmed the lower collar.

Any tricks or tips to get 12/12? I'd love to get that pitch throw!!!

Why that motor? I don’t even thing that it is an outrunner motor?

Reading the Trex forums I see that is not a very good motor and has some problems.

Scorpion would be a much better choice.

Sorry, I forgot, I did have to trim the guide pins down about 1/8" or so - can't remember exactly now...may have been a bit more.

I agree wholeheartedly with Ben-T-Spindle. I have never been much of a fan of the Align motors and ESC's. I would go to Scorpion or Century myself.

What's wrong with the motor?

I'm starting to have buyers remorse about this motor. I liked the higher KV and haven't had any issues with any of my previous motors?

I also got a decent deal on it

I'm using a Scorpion 4025-740 in my swift and a 10T and it's a BULLET!
These are really great motors for the money. But I can understand using what you have.
I have also thought about going to 600mm blades in the future. That is kind of why I got this motor.
I'm hoping it will work ok when I stretch my Swift and go with 600mm blades. Using 550's right now and it gets a little warm
if it is over 95 deg F outside.

It will fly your helicopter ok so just go fly. Whether it overheats, has a bearing problem, or just craps out depends on how hard you fly.

I flew the motor this past weekend. Did do anything fancy, just some forward flight and loops and rolls. The motor seems real strong when punching out. Unfortunately I stripped the main gears. But so far impressed with the motor.

I'm running this on 550 to 620 conversion.

Well, that motor didn't last long. Broke the shaft in the motor, while doing tic tocs.

Scorpion 4025 fit issues
I'm now using a scorpion 4025 in my 550 carbon frame. The can rubs on the nyloc nutz? I reversed the the bolts and nutz but still get a little rub? Anyone else have this problem?
