My friend installed an old mega motor and 4s 2600 in his just to test the plane while waitng for his new setup to arrive.

It flys very well, and he is pleased with it.


I took a crappy video of it, but its not realy worth showing

Juan, your killing me. You have one of these? So jealous! If there ever was a plane to take the place of my precious Absolute, I dare say it might be this one. Can't wait for a full flight report and video. Eric - guy that actually got to fondle one at SUSA, while they were in stock.

Ps anybody know if a 15 series Neu fits in the nose?

Eric, sorry to mislead you buddy. I don't have one. I have a video of one flying though. Cool folding F5D prop.

Juan, I had a "wishful thinking moment" :-). Look forward to the vid.

Yuri, yes, that's the trick. A 5.2 gear drive and a cut down RFM slim might be fun for speed. Did something similar with a 1509 1.5d 5.2 on 5 s and it survived :-). It went pretty good. Juan has that set up now. And me? ---buyers remorse...:-). At least it's in good hands! Hoping to see Rich's explain, uhem, x-plane, in person one day soon.

This is Bob's Swist, flown at El Dorado Park in Long Beach in April. Flown with a 5x5 folder. Don't know the full setup, but I think it's on 5s.

is the only place to buy a swist in USA ?

I know they make them in Russia, but order directly from them would also add 25% to the total where I live (Sweden, Europe).

I wish someone within EU would sell them.

Why just sell to the USA ?

The problem is what he just wrote. The shipping costs and the import fees.
