Dave & Mike,
One of our club members brought his Seawind out to our grass field. He has an E-Flite 46 in it and it really honks. Man is it fast!!! Way to fast for me but it's a joy to watch as it screams by. One problem he has noticed is that the motor pylon has a lot of down flex when power is applied. He's trying to think of some way to reinforce it. Me, I would use a less powerful motor and not burn up the sky like a banshee!!! It is a beautiful bird in the air and with the recommended motor it flies nicely, (as in Mike's videos).
I probably will get mine for a winter project as I'm not into building right now.
But I'm thinking of the PBY instead. I like the scale look and speed. Your,question about which AXI motor I can't answer now as I haven't made a comparison. I have NO problem with the recommended RIMFIRE motor. I use both AXI and RIMFIRE, but I prefer AXI.
Happy flying,
