I just finished gluing a Tek Sumo from hobbyking same as a popwing different colors and it 200% better than the swift and only $33 and available from the us warehouse. It has carbons rod in the wing and ailerons and 3 carbon rods to glue in across the wing joint. Zero flex in the wing none. Also has better cut outs for gear and battery. There room for a common mod to allow a 2200 battery. I am so empressed I wanted to order a spare but they are out of stock so I am going to ba ckorder one.Oh servo go on top and have wood tray to screw them. Zero flexing of servo mount.

I like the idea of CF rods in the ailerons I think I'll do that to my Swift.

I'd agree - my mate has one and checked it out including how it flies.

Must be time for Swift 3.
