Unfortunately my Mini Swift is beyond repair.
Firewall busted, front end distorted by gobs of gorilla glue.
I've decided to wait for HK to get these little birds back in stock and try again.
I believe the root to my problems with the Mini Swift lay in the fact that I used a prop adapter instead of a prop saver. Some hard landings resulted in the front part of the fuse cracking repeatedly. Next Mini will be used with either a prop saver or a Graupner folding prop.
Any suggestions for sizes and where to get a Graupner?
I intend to use the 1806 motor.
Thanks.
I really love the MS and can't wait to get another. Too bad they don't do the crash kit anymore.
