edit. If your just reading this.
DON'T order from MSCompositeUSA.com OR knbhobbies.com

There, saved you from reading 100s of posts.

They have the original Swift and the Swift 2 at http://www.gravesrc.com/catagory_s/590.htm in Orlando. But I have noticed that they don't have very many of their other kits other than the Unique. I was looking for the Mustang, but nothing. A lot of the other vendors who sell their kits also have most of them on back order. So it's a good indication that something is afoot.

Hey G, what do you like about the Swift II? Isn't it like the old Zagi? I was thinking of making a trip over to Graves and pick up one of the MS Composit kits, either the Unigue or Swift or??

I can only go by with what I have/had.
The swiftII, superfly are 2 "musts" for an RC flyr.


Here is my review: http://allthingsthatfly.blogspot.com...-swift-ii.html


But order it from somebody that will take care of you.

MS Composit USA has closed.

Have they been charged for the airplanes? If so you may want to e-mail them in the Czech Republic.

Do you have a source for this info? No offense, but I would like some solid evidence of this claim. Sad sad if it is true.

I was told that by my local hobby shop who tried to call to order more Swifts. Not solid proof I guess.

Well, with the fear of not getting any more MSC product, I just picked up 3 planes from gravesrc.com. MiniSwift, EPP Trainer (Will be a night flyer), and a unique.

Hope someone picks up distribution here in the USA. Would hate to lose them since all the products I have had of theirs were great. I see nothing on the link above that says they are out of biz.

I spoke to Brian Butts who ran MS Composit USA at XFC. So you could say I got it direct from the source.

Also I am the Assistant Editor of Model Aviation magazine and we received notice of their closing. I would not post it unless I knew it to be a fact.

Plenty of them seem to be in stock at Knox Hobbies! Not sure if they would be affected if the MSComposit USA distributor has shut down or not, but I can try to find out.
