The Hyperion 30 series motors have an interesting backplate supplementary mount which also manages the wire route down the back of the motor. To me it looks achievable to approach 150w/lb on the 2218-10 which is a LOT of performance. But the 30 series may well fit if the supplementary mount is also used. It would also add a lot of torsional strength to the nose. I'm going with the 2218 on mine, but I have a colleague who is looking at using the Hyp 30 motor. I'm fairly sure it will fit, but a careful install will be needed, but I believe that is made quite straightforward with Hyperion's additional backplate.

I would argue that the Typhoon does not need 1kw for vertical performance though! I think you'll be surprised how pokey it will be on 600W. It is considerably more efficient than a Blizzard.
