The Century 600+ motor with the 9T pinion using a 5S, 30C pack of 5000 mah and an ESC setting for a head speed of 1500 will get you over 12 minutes.

I was just looking to try another motor with 1100 kv and from the forms the Scorpion 4025 1100 had been used by others.

I'm fitting a swift into another scale ship
what battery are you using with this setup?
and how are you getting that rotor/headspeed?

i dont get that on the RC calculator,,,

thanks

The 600+ is the 1110KV motor.

For even more versatility, more efficiency and more power, you can also use the Century 800LV, 650 motor.

The 650A plus 800kv is also a decent balance between power and efficiency, but suited better for a 6S setup using 11-13T. Flight times are roughly 10-12 minutes with a 4800mAh 6S pack.

Have you guy ever had issue with the plastic blade grips?

I have one broke off in flight today, my Swift16 has been hanging from the garage ceiling for 2+ years, took her out for a spin and had bad vibration in the second flight after flyin' about one minute, found one of blade grips broke off when landed, no crash and the blades only touch air. The blade grip screws are checked before first flight and they are just right, not very tight, flew smooth and great in the first flight.

Anyone has a set of good use metal grip and head block to get rid of, please PM me of price. Thanks,
