The big birds much slower and less nimble than the little swift. Flies nice and smooth on a eflite park 480 and forever on the 3s1p 3100 needed up front to balance it. Its not as hot as the smaller verion by any way. As for electronics placement its not a problem where they are. Never stripped a servo gear in one as the output arm runs flush with the underside of the wing, the rest of the radio is taped over or a piece of thin plastic sheet as a cover. The brushless esc i fit to the top side on the motor mount just in front of the motor.

The maxi swift runs anything from a single 3s1p 2500 to 2 x 3s1p 2500 in parrallel or even 4s1p 3700 dependant on motor choice. not tried it but you could probably go with the dinosaurs and set her up with a speed 600 and 8 sub c nimhs

No holes are cut in the maxi swift for radio, batteries etc unlike the baby one.
