Amav....I tried Heads Ups' Fire power 15 in my Hokusei 48" Sbach foam/balsa hybrid and it was a dog. It spec'd out very similar to the omega, but with the larger props (13x6.5, 14x7) it didn't have any guts below 1/2 throttle, with a 12x6 it seemed weak compared to the omega, yet it was an amp hog ( very short flight times) Put an Omega 130 in it and it now flies fantastic.
My experience with Heads Up motors so far has been that the small stuff is great for small profile foamies, but I haven't had any luck with their larger stuff ( maybe I'm expecting too much from them in my 3D planes). I know guys that have used them in warbirds and scale planes and they fly great.
