I'm building a Swift 16 kit (all stock parts for now) along with the 600+ and 80amp ESC combo. I got a 9 tooth pinion included with what I purchased from another user over on RCGroups. I have found little info on what the limitations are for flying the stock head/grips and 520mm woodies in regard to headspeeds and acrobatic limits. I have not purchased any lipos for it yet but have researched 5S and 6S setups, but 6S even with a 9t pinion puts the headspeed over 2000k.

I use to fly My woodies @ 1800RPM and no problems.
Flips, rolls, loops, sport flying to light 3D is totally doable with the stock blades.

5s would be great @ 100% for sport and training.
6s you would have to gov it down to like 70-75% to get it down to 1750-1800 on the head. With the swift 520mm wood blades, I have ran the 100% on 6S with the same set up as yours with no problems but I would not recommend it I was waiting for the blades to give at those speeds but never happened. Glued roots and fully balanced probably helped.

Good deal. I was going to shoot for the 1800 rpm range and just wanted to make sure it will hold together ok.

woodies...
Iused to run the woodies on a 5s logo 10 for a long time...I could spin them 2000 rpm's and do everything (medium 3d)but piro flips safely...and they never failed in flight..

I'm sure 1800 and mild 3d is fine ...
