The extra weight+speed will make it flex more making it more unstable.


That convinced me to to finally convert mine to FPV.

Going to get a mount like this :

Wing Motor Mount

And swap the motor to one more powerful, need to put some CF in it as well to give more strength.

PS: My Swift2 has now +6yrs and it's still flying.
Sorry, missed the underside - yes I added a CF strip, which snapped on the first flight!?!?, so I added another. See below.

Power is definitely not a problem, I dare not open her up or strange things happen. I have the CG a tiny bit further back than what's in the manual.
