One of my friends at the club owns the FMS Hawk, it has the same setup as my FW Skyhawk but he has a whoosh sound where I have the whine ...
Man, you've either got an imbalance problem or resonance issue. Sounds like classic 1 x rpm whine to me.

yeah, I changed the motor and the whine stays, so it's up to the shroud/rotor/spinner or fuse ...

I am sorry but to me this is not a good RC video. This is a very nice video for the general public who want to listen to music and watch a couple of planes. A good RC video is NOT edited, has NO music and you can hear everything first hand - including all the glitches and how things work out.

yep, those would have worked just dandy but it turns out there are a handful of others I discovered my dad flew with and each have some unique history with... it was hard to chose actually but after wrestling with which squadron for too long with I finally decided on the squadron my dad earned his sliver star flying the A-4E with VA-155 while assigned to the USS Constellation in 1966... I should get my decals next week and will get to it over the Thanksgiving weekend, I can't wait

I just received 2 of these new units with the 2100kv motors. Going to put one in the Scooter and one in the MiG 21. Might be a while before I actually fly them though.

I also bought a complete FMS EDF unit 80mm with the 2100kv inrunner. The plastic of the housing is different than before, it's a lot softer.

I tested this setup on the ground as well, and it's SUPERQUIET all whoosh with a perfect balance, you'll love it ! I'll run that setup in my Freewing Mig-21

you can find the pros easily at aliexpress shops and rc castle sells them as well
