Hey guys, I have been flying the swift II's for about four years now and have three of them currently, and looking to purchase a 4th and add a 7" center section to make a wider blunt nose swift for FPV. But anyway, my favorite motor for the swift II is the 24 gram 1700kv blue wonder, on one of them I decided to remove the 1700kv motor and installed the 3000kv 24 gram motor, and I too experienced the roll at higher throttle and no response from the sticks until airspeed drops, reinstalled the lower kv motor and it flew great again, What I think is happening with higher power setups, is that at full throttle the swift starts to torque roll and the EPP elevons are so flexible that they stay straight and cannot deflect enough to counteract the increased load until that load is removed (cutting throttle)

Ps, if you want to keep the higher power setup, cut off the EPP elevons, and install balsa ones.
