How does this swarm works? Can I join from Italy - and they will send it to me - or they ship just in one address? If they cam, I guess myself and a couple of friends colud surely join this swarm!

Another question: did you say you ordered spare blades? Where you find it? Are rotor heads available too? I wouldlike to use it in a personal project

Thank you
Yes, you can order from Italy, just a lot cheaper. They will ship to each swarm member's address.

Heads / blades

yeah, swarms can get a bit glitchy.

Didn't get an email on completion this time. I saw a message that someone joined 6 for 6, and when I went to the swarm sale it had completed.

Was able to order ok.

Note: all cierva items (including spare heads and blades) are back ordered at this time.

You can also swarm a head, but not blades.

Just joined this one to help out.

NOW 6 OUT OF 6!!!

I got a Swarm completion email this time.

Join the swarm again and it should place the Cierva in your shopping cart. Adjust quantity as required (you can order more than one at the swarm price).


Place those orders before the swarm expires.....

Just made it! Many thanks to our Duck friend-can't wait to get a new head and get back in business, and I'll keep the new fuse in reserve.

My 2 minutes of fun were amazing, so I just need to learn how to land!

Thanks guys,
I got the email form hobbycity for the complete "swarm", it only took me 4 attempts to actually get the thing added at the reduced price, but I've done it now, and paid :-)

Should be fun!

Cheers

Ian

Ian, you'll love it-you can find building instructions from a fellow modeler/volunteer on the HK site.

DO NOT try to ROG if this is your first autogyro: I made that mistake.

Walking the blades up to speed for a gentle hand release is harder to describe than to do.

Now, if I can just learn to land this thing....

I've tried to join the first swarn,
I've opened this second swarn,
But in no way I can get the swarn price. I'm definitvely out of luck, or maybe HK does not like my web browser (safari and Chrome) or they hate me

Yes, there are definitely problems with safari, though chrome sometimes works.

I'm using firefox.

Try this (using Chrome)

"I've said this before, and I'll say it again...

if you guys add the item to your cart at the full price, and have one already in your cart when the system gives you the email that you've got 6 people, then you can add your SWARM item more reliably. When it puts the item in your cart, it adds it to your existing order, meaning you'll now have two of them, but they'll both be at the swarm price, and you can change the count back to one, or add as many as you want at that new price. That's the only way I could get it to work reliably in Chrome. "

Be careful when you "join" and avoid starting a new swarm: it is confusing at best, unduly difficult or impossible at worst.

I just got a notice from HK that the Cierva is back in stock (no blades or heads) and a visit to the site shows "10+" in stock. I would VERY much like to participate in a swarm for this if folks can guide me through the process.

Who can set one of these up?
