Made with EPO, this small glider is both agile and very resliant to crashes. A great hotliner style glider with an 800mAh 2S pack, or bungy high-start/tow model with a 350mAh pack.
The Mini-swift is great fun slope soaring or just racing around your local park.
Because it's plug-n-fly ready you only need to include your own receiver and battery to be flight-ready!

beware: as far as i have learned, the 1st 2 numbers in a motor tell the diameter of the motor. then why the AX 1806 is 22 mm diameter? then it is too much for the swift i think. and too heavy. some 22 grams instead of 10 of the 1811,( that is 18 mm diameter).

different way to measure the motor eg a the average 1/10 rc car motor is 3650 or a 540 size motor just different ways the motor is marked. have you measured the face of your mtor on the plane?

for all that i have been reading at the rcgroups, the most recommended replacement motor is the 1811 -2000 so i would go for it instead. no more power but more reliable.

folloeing suggestions for a more powerful motor i am considering the AX 1806 2500 kv that has a 3 mm shaft. also the recommended prop is a 5/3. i would like to get a folder-wih a 3mm shaft hole. does any1 know of 1 to match? thanks

anybody could tell me if the stock prop folds completely as touching the fuselage sides? the picture shows it only partially folded because the hinges are to close to the shaft. if so, does any1 has used other props that fold completely? could you please provide details and specifications and/or part numbers? thanks

the original folding prop is designed in a very poor way, so it does not fold completely (the blade arm are not bent as usally in folding prop). You can change it with a Graupner folding 4.7x2.4 that solve the problem

i bought a pair of graupner carbon fiber planes for the bix 2, i replaced my knife set with them :) theyre beyond exelent quality and are capable of cutting down to the bone

Mine arrived within a few days. (from the UK warehouse). The tailplane is difficult to fix as it slides into a slot, and is pre-fitted with very sticky double sided tape. this "grabs before you have positioned the piece. The main problem was, that only two out of the three wires to the brushless motor were connected. Brushless motors don't work very well with only two wires connected. Having corrected this fault, I found that it flies very well, although the control surfaces are very stiff. In all not a bad little model to practice with, but the quality control people at the Chinese factory need some re-training. HobbyKing please take note !!

Genial, monte tres rapidement, je lui mis des rhino 610 en 2S qui se logent tres bien dedans. Seul difficulte est de passer le cable de servos des ailerons dans le fuselage lors du montage.
Sinon c'est une machine tres chouette, qui plane pas trop mal, tient super bien le vol dos.

Got the one the other day. The kit came nicely packed and was shipped as Fragile good, so it arrived undamaged half way around the world.

First impressions: Looks very well made, all parts fit well together. All electronics are in working order. Motor has enough pull and is very silent. Servos felt a bit ratchety and cheap (well they are cheap) but seem to do the job. They do buzz at extreme end of travel but that can be sorted on Tx.

It came with a Pentium mark ed 6A ESC not a Turnigy one (surprise).

Controls have enough throw so that should not be a problem, Ailerons seemed not to have as much throw as other two but I am not sure as I am more a Heliguy.

The spare kit doesn't come with channels or the push rods.

Build material used seems not as robust as on my Multiplex Fox.

All in all a good package for the price but shipping kills the joy. 30USD EMS shipping plus about 45USD toll tax and handelling fee(higher tax due to EMS option)will make me think twice the next time.

Anyway I have some unpacking of kit photos posted in the blog section of hobbyking forums.

Mine came out at 120 grams with a 360mAh 2cell LiPo. Current draw is ~4,5A. I would not say very fast, but its fun to fly. A little slow response on the aileron, but crispy on elevator. I am probably going to extend the ailerons as long as it is possible.

I've just come from the field, and so far not believe how this plane can fly, perfect controls, flew well even with enough wind. Five stars for hobbyking

Received this today - and put it together over an hour or so. To get the aileron servo lead into place, I pushed string through from the canopy and taped it to the servo lead. The lead was threaded above the wing into the cavity above the wing, then pulled thru with the string.
I also had the beep beep problem getting the motor to go - I think the esc needed 'arming' - turn on radio with throttle full, then after beep, returnto zero - sets rang

A fantastic little glider, great for slope soaring or tearing around your local park. Very resilient to crashes and long flight times on just an 500mAh Lipo.
