Well life with a Swift II has not been fun. I normally use a friend to trim out my planes but he is not available now. I had a Swift I which flew great.After many hours of flying I retired it and the ni-mh batteries. I should have waited till I could find someone at my club field to hand launch it for me. I could not get my hands on the controls fast enough after what really where poor launches. My Swift was very easy to launch but lighter I think. I broke the nose on the first launch, never did that on my Swift. And on the third launch I broke the GWS 7 x3.5 prop even with a prop saver they appear to be a real weak prop. I tried a Gws 8 x 4 but that seemed to overload the motor. So now repair the bird the best I can and wait for more props. My local hc carries all most no GWS products now. They also don't sell the Swift anymore. CS price with shipping to Canada is a little high.
Maybe I should go fly my Pawnee 40 or Pulse XT 40.
