MS Composit SWIFT Delta Wing

Check out this wing. Best parkflyer/schoolyard that I have seen. Not as fast as a viper twin or zagi but is fast for for a small area yet also flys real slow. Flys for up to 14 mins on 720 nimh packs. Is made of EPP foam. I have friends with viper twin and zagi's they are all flying the Swift more than their other wings.
I have a viper twin but it needs a fairly large field, while the swift can be flown at the local school yard. I am still learning on my TM but the swift is my next plane. Wish I had bought a swift rather than my VT. In fact I think I am going to sell my VT.

I have really enjoy my Swift. It takes a rough crash and keep on going. I am still learning to fly such a touchy flying wing. I ehave not flown mt Viper Twin since getting my Swift since I can fly my swift bye myself and I need help with my VT.
It is available at One Stop Hobbies in Abbottsford, BC 604-852-6497. They are sold out at the moment but new stock should be in about a week. Oh and it is only $99 complete with speed 380 motor and gearbox.

This thing sounds great.

But, I'm having problems finding a link to someone who has them in the U.S.

MS Composit's has Hobby Lobby as their US supplier, and they do not appear to carry the Swift.

Where can I get one?????

Thanks.

i do ot know of any place in the U.S. but you can get them through One-stop hobies in Canada Since you dollar is higher you may even get it for a cheaper price than you could if you orderd it from the states.......just a thought. These wings are WONDERFULL. i am soooooo glad i got one.

MS Swift

It seems that MS Composit has not gotten the Swift to the United States yet even though several shops carry their helicopter. Has anyone else found this little wing for sale anywhere other than in the Czech Republic?

Swift availability

Does On Stop Hobbies have a web site or must one call them to place an order?

They are just in thew works of setting one up. here is there Phone Number 1604 852 6497. Ask for Johnathan and tell him Malcom sent ya. He is the best one to speak to as he has one himself and will know what you will need to fly this baby. I have a hitec 555 RX in mine so you really do not need a smaller RX for it. You will have to enlarge the space where it goes by just a small amount though.

MS Swift

I have a swift (bought it used at the local hobby Shop) - I love it!
I think my next plane will be a Zagi 400X or a Viper Twin (now that
I have the Flying Wing 'thing' figured out, I want more speed.

I think I figured out the Hobby Lobby thing, too.
They have a plane called the "Mini Tornado" and as far as I can tell, That's it! (http://www.hobby-lobby.com/tornado.htm)

If anyone out there either has or gets a Tornado, please let me know what you think!

Ya I love my Swift and my Viper Twin. The Tornado uses a speed 280 and i think a 3:1 gearbox while the has a speed 300 with a 5:1 gearbox.
One Stope Hobbies (has them in stock again. Bought myself a spare gearbox and pinion gear.

Hi

Was there some issue with motor mount that breaks off easy. How does it thermal and what are your flight times. I was thinking in testing one out?

Thks
