No, it's actually smaller than the Mini-Swift, @ 16in wingspan,
just got it today, take a look at Comman Sense RC's site.

Wow looks almost like a turnigy Bonsai or probably vice versa LOL.





Not sure if it's the same exact but here's what I use...

BUT BEWARE SOME ARE CONCERNED IT MAY PULL TO MANY AMPS AND FRY THE ESC

I haven't had that problem though and you could put a bigger esc on there too.


I have used 3 different power systems on the bonsai and this one so far is the best...... Speed, power, fairly light....

it works GREAT. 12A plush, 5 x 43 and a ORange 410rx, 460 3s nanotech, ADH300S Brushless Outrunner 2400kv, a heaviier battery like a 600 3s or even an 800 3s it can handle or you can add a penny or 3 to the front.
It goes straight up at half throttle. IT's kinda fast so if you don't like speed pratice some throttle control.

No they are definitly not the same plane this micro swift is a 600mm span where as the bonsai is 800mm
a rather large difference. I have a feeling the microswift will go like hell with a decent power system that you would use on the bonsai. hhhmmm

I love little flying wings also but the price isn't something I'm willing to pay. UMX Stryker or S-Bach electrics would be my choice.

I'll admit. it is pricey for sure! I already had servos, sp. cntl, batts, & motor,
so it wasn't too bad. But, it's a Swift, and Swifts do fly good, since I already had two
previously, so I just had to have this one!

Wow at half the wing span this thing is tiny and think it would be a little rocket with one of the bonsai power systems.
