Patterkid, I've checked out those other wings, and they seem to be the super fast wings, and probably more expencive with the gear. The swift II is better built really light, and floaty. You can put together a kit for probably under 100 bucks rtf if youve got a rx. Swift II is a backyard flyer for sure.

Which motor(hobbycity motor) would you recommend for the Swift II with the Turnigy 15c 1000mah 3s1p Lipo? its 87grams or is that just too heavy. where can you get strapping tape? do you cover the bottom with anything? im thinking of getting clear monocote type covering for the top. what about the bottom or is it useless weight?

For mine I used a 1000mAH 3s. But for a "bluewonder" setup, just get the 610/730mAh 3s.

That battery seems a little thick, and heavyfor its capacity, I think It can be done though, the perfered setup wit hthis plane is the following.

This motor, 1700kv 7 buck motor

http://hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store...trunner_1700kv

A 10 amp esc (Turnigy Plush)

This battery, really cheap and great.

http://hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store...0C_Lipoly_Pack

Or you could go

http://hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store...0C_Lipoly_Pack

Eithe would work. If someone wants to add something, feel free.

prop size, with the 1700kv 24g blue wonder, as they call it, would be a match with a gws EP-7060 prop. goes vertical for me easily. probaly find it on h.c. as well. make sure you get a prop saver withthe motor, the same size as the shaft diamiter, like 3mm er something. Wait, never mind, it comes with a prop saver.

Covering...Na, dont need it, you can get strapping tape at walmart, they sell it with little white lines going across it, its fiberglass in the tape.

Glue, I used shoogoo, or shoegoo, er whatever. If you have some, tacked it down with CA and accelorator, but shoegoo will work great. Just make sure you press em tight for a while. also walmart. I think.

and if you need some servos HC has you covered as well, get the HXT 900's super cheap and great. and more Q's?
