The old Swallow rears it's head once more!
Good luck, it looks nice but most of us gave up trying to make this thing fly properly several years ago.

If it's like the old swallow.... mine have a 4S 3600 (385g), a 3W15 HET more or less 80 g, and an ESC of 70g everything put in the neck of the model to balance well...
Yes i know that i could use a bigger motor...... However the tail of this model it's very very heavy!

so i have read on the reviews that a folding prop is not such a good idea on this plane. is this because of the rpm? i am looking at using a 3200kv turnigy inrunner.

3200kv what size folding prop were you thinking? And why would you want a folding prop anyway this is no F5B, the wingloading is MUCh higher than that....
