Poles and I need to know about it?

Hi all.
I'm pretty new to brushless motors, so could anyone ecsplain to me what it's all about?
I recently bought a Turnigy Multistar 4225-610Kv 16Pole motor, a 4s LiPo and a 40A esc, for a fixed-wing model.
Now I just read something about how many magnets and poles there were in a motor, do I need worry?
Thanks in advance :)

    No need to worry.

    No problem.
    Just out of interest though, what was the reason you chose that particular (very good) motor?
    Usually they are used on multicopters and not fixed wing.

    Well, I 3d-printet a P47 from 3dLabprint, and they suggested a 4008-620 motor. But since I acidently made the plane a little to heavy, I went for a bigger motor to compensate :)
    I have no idea if it's going to work, but I think I got the thrust it needs :)
    I'm not used to this electric stuff, but I'll get there. I've been flying on/off for 20 years with fixed wing and helicopters, but since the printer was right there, I was thinking I'd give it a shot :)

    You don't need to worry about this stuff. But if you did want to learn the basics this guy makes a pretty decent explanation video.

    Remember 1 Brushless motors are three phase motors.
    2 - a motor being spun is a generator.
