Hi Pavn,
I am building a MaxiSwift with an Arduflyer board (equivalent to your APM 2.5) and Arduplane (3.2)... So, I would be very interested by your Arduplane settings (PID in particular) !

Like the Pod Mito, good design.
I was thinking of a pod of some sort myself.
Yours looks real smooth!
Where did you put your C.G.?

Hi 2lo,

I use C.G. 30cm from the top of the wing. Recommended is 30 - 32cm. Maxi Swift flies nicely, good plane for clasicc flying without FPV, because it is big :-) I can see it for a long distance!

They are big alright!
Thanks, just wanted to be sure manufacture recommendations were good.

FPV Maxi Swift

Hi !
Here is mine, equipped for FPV and autonomous flights (with APM 2.5/Arduplane 3.2, minim OSD, pan-tilt, 900Mhz/200mW VTX, ...).
At present the CG is at 30cm, with two 2200mAh/3S lipos at the front. But I suspect that it may fly (glide) better if moved a bit backward. So I plan to try 32cm soon.
