Looks more like a slope soarer no? Kind of like a v-tail version of the Sunbird: http://www.soaringusa.com/Sunbird-Glass.html

Smaller fuse than the + tail wasp, but still possibly to make electric.


And get that RCRCM junk outta here

I had 3 more flights with V-tail Swift this Sunday.
And 3 flights with "+" Swift.
My setups are different with comparable power output, about 1250 Watts.
As of right now I say, V-Tail is more aggressive. I get same pitch movement with 75% of elevator of "+" and no snap flaps.
It is also faster in a dive.
It is just as stable, easy to launch , easy to land with spoilers.

Short run time is my only complain (1600m Ah 4s)

Well, I joined the Reverb/Swift club last night. A friend put it together for me (see build thread here ...http://temac.ca/smf/index.php/topic,4106.0.html)

This is by far the fastest plane that I've owned. I was flying on 4S with HET2W-23 and 4.7x4.7 prop. I am now having the spinner problem - where to find a 36mm spinner? Thanks to this thread I ordered one from "Electricwingman"

But what a great handling plane. We had the throws all set-up as per a post from Jackosmeister (I think) and had programmed spoilerons for landing - man, do they work well. Thank you!

When I landed I was stunned, and Ed asked me if I was full of adrenalin. I said "no, it's fear!"

Hats off thread contributors. I used all the information for Sihinch's build just by reading this thread. As he commented it flew terrific.
Thanks!

Do you have measured the velocity with 2w23?

I've always liked the 5.25x6.25 on the Reverb w/the 2w23 on 4s. Maybe give it a try sometime?

Sometimes a repaired plane flies better than the original. I stalled my current Reverb on final! (some days things just don't seem to be going right..) It never seemed to groove like the others I've had. Mostly cracks and splits in the fuselage so some quick CA to stabilize and fiberglass to fix and I flew it today. Flies as good as any I've ever had (except I'm landing long for some reason?)

My flying buddy likes to joke that his full-scale Cessna 182 needs less runway then my Reverb!

Well maybe not a 182.... But I'm 90% positive I could land the old 150 I used to rent, shorter than most f5d planes lol!

Your not using 20mm of spoilers! With them I could land the reverb on my lawn

I seem to lose control when I deploy too much spoilers, and it doesn't really slow it down! Need more practice I guess
