Why don't you hear more about Swift wings

They obviously look ten times better than tape covered foam so there must be something holding them back. Do they fly ok or does everyone like to build their own.

^^^right you are euromodels

they fly great. put an e-flite park370 outrunner in it with a 3c1050mah lipo and they go for ever. awesome fun.
easy to fly, but can also pull all the moves.

and as you said they look great..

my swift's hanger is in my car, so if i ever get the urge to fly or pass by a nice park just whip it, chuck it and fly.

There are several different brands of wings in your link so I will guess you are talking about the Swift. Would the Swift make a good first wing or should I go with the traditional taped foam wing for strength.

Because there are too many in this price range to try

I saw one of these in my LHS believe it or not and have considered picking it up, it's quite a bit larger than my other 2 wings that are flying at the moment wouldn't mind making a "floater" out of it.

the swift woud be an excellent first wing. cheap, easy to fix, takes a beating and glides really well.
put some quality kit in it, that is what will cost you the most, but it will be well worth it.
goodluck.

My current wing is the SWIFT II, I love this thing. I've had 5 wings previously, all of them have their place but this one has my attention at the moment. It has a large speed range and is very maneuverable. Simple and cheap, and they look great. I'm flying mine with a GWS 2205-15T with the GWS 15A ESC. I'm using a TP 3S 910 on it and it is a blast. I think I've settled on an APC 5.5 x 4.5 but I can't remember for sure.
