E-Schwing is coming.

Hi Guys,
E-Schwing - Electrical brother to the Schwing 2.35M sailplane is about to make its debut.

More on the development can be found here:

Its designed to be pretty high performance and can take three batteries.

Cheers,

James.

Better all round Jacko - different manufacturer. RCRCM quality is abysmal.

Cheers,

James.

E Schwing video

Tony Fu maidened the E Schwing yesterday on a slope, wind speed approx 12mph. Itís the first time I have seen the E fuse in the flesh, it looks well thought out, nice shape and it's strong. I have ordered one


The electric is only 200g heavier than my carbon Schwing (glider). This is a 6s setup pulling 1971W. Even at 2400g itís still very responsive to thermals, agile and of course fast just like the glider.

Hereís the video.
Sorry for the wind noise
