Roger, it is true that switching the two outer wires will reverse the motor... however, changing Any Two of the wires will do that. The reason is that a brushless ESC produces three phases which are each 120 degrees out of phase so it does not matter which two wires are switched...
I used this motor in a Fox 1.8m MotoGlider From Hype.
Its weight battery included is next to 800g. With this motor, it climb almost verticaly. It's a real elevator ! lol And the best in this ? I was forced to block the throttle to 60pcnt because my ESC is to small.
Hype MDM-1 Fox 1.80m
Weight : ~800g
Prop : Foldable 10x6 (default 9x5)
Lipo 3S 1000ma/H - 1250ma/H - 2200ma/H
Hope It will help you
Hum, don't know why the other guy has had problems with his, but mine is built like a rock! I got sand in it, slammed it into the asphalt, scratched it up, and it still works great. Here are some specs,
TURNIGY nano-tech 1300mah 3S 25~50C Lipo Pack
TURNIGY Plush 25amp Speed Controller
TURNIGY L2206A-1650 Brushless Motor (130w)
18.22 - 19.23 amps
205 - 223.6 watts
This pushes my 36" epp wing like a rocket, straight up into the sky! Insane performance.

I adjusted the shaft position in the rotor to reduce the end play because the bearings felt rough. After a brief run the bearings felt smooth. After 1 hour of flight time the bearing still are good. I am using a 3S 1000mAh LiPo with a 20 Amp ESC and a 7X6 prop in a 1 meter, 500 gram pusher wing. I get 12000 RPM, 17.5 amp and 200 Watt static but about 7Amp average in flight. Motor is barely warm. Good speed and unlimited vertical climb. The Kv measured about 1705. The resistance measured 41 mOhm. A larger diameter lower pitch prop might be more efficient if you have room for it. I like it.
Good solid motor, has worked for 2.5 hours without any problems. Works well in my small 3d park flier. Turns a 9x5 with ease, included hardware is nice, and looks good. Would recommend to a friend, and would buy again if i needed a replacement.
