Still not sure about the motor fitting. Hollow carbon rods glued to the front former & the cowl?
If it's a Scorpion 2212 it will match the same screw holes as the 400 that I think is shown on the plan. You then only need to make sure that the wires don't foul the rotating part of the motor.
The one the left (with the motor wires at the front) would be secured using the x bit at the front meaning that removing the motor would be simply a case of unscrewing the long bolts to release the motor.
Just ignore it. The only results I've seen from any of these type of calculators are ball-park at best.
The Orion was originally was intended to use a 400 brushed motor with 7 or 8 nickel cells. That's a less powerful motor than the Scorpion weighing about 70g (20g more) plus 150 - 190g of battery. IMO you'd be better of using the 950mAH battery. The extra weight won't have a noticeable effect on performance but the lower proportional load will help extend the lipos working life. BTW are you sure about the difference in weight between the 600 & 950 lipos ? I have a 3s 900 lipo that weighs 68g & it's quite heavily packaged.
