Swallow S400 36" wing span Pylon race

Hi everyone,
We found on ebay, this very very damned nice Pylon racer, i bought one and i'm waiting for the parcel. I plan to motorize this plane with an 3200Kv inrunner.
I will inform you of the overall quality kit and flying behavior. i hope it flies as well as it is beautiful:





Best regards
Nicolas

ps: you can see some pics on a french Forum:

Hello,
some news, 2 days after ordered the plane, its already shipped, and the tracking number provided. Very serious Ebay's seller.

See you soon for the reception of the parcel.

I ordered mine six days ago and have not heard any confirmation. I have send two e-mails - no response yet?

I bought a White Version yesterday to night (sunday - 03-30) and today already has the confirmation of dispatch with the track number. I chose EMS and made the order directly on the site jettechmodels.com.

This statement might make you worry when going 170-200mph:

"Foam balsa covered wing"

Although it looks very nice I don't know how much stress the wing can take.

Nothing wrong with balsa covered foam wings, they are very strong.

Balsa sheeted foam core wing is what they use in Q500. And those weigh a lot more, i doubt this little plane could put as much stress on the wing as a Q500 plane would put on their wings...
But then again if the quality is low it would be easy to make it fail

There was a mix up with my e-bay e-mail address. Jettechmodels had send the model virtually the same day I had ordered. Now that's impressive service!!!

Have you flown at 170mph?

Most pylons that accomplish this come from layed up wings made with carbon like my F5D Excite.

Or my 200+ F5D Nemesis....

We did go fast before carbon. Besides this will not go 170mph....
