So I owe this to those that may follow the "Blunt" version Swift II. I bought/received a 10" Blunt (insert jokes here). Anyways, I didn't modify it at all. Using the 10" Blunt with 1.5mm x 4 mm Carbon Ribbons x 4 in a I beam fashion for spars. This strengthened it up just fine.

Maiden was at night. She flew just fine in the beginning. A little Left trim, a little Up trim, and she flew fantastic.
Finished two nights ago. Maidened last night and already has 2 hrs on airframe.
I've been out to 1.8 km at XXX meters with clear video. Very happy with this platform, for what I built it for. It doesn't roll fast and I'm ok with it, but it's a mule for follow on projects. For turning and burning I have a Standard Swift II.
