I have the micro and I think it flys great, the 2.5 should be even better.

Ok, guys no bs. I have one in my possession that I'm flying and it's way lighter and wings are stiffer than my xmodels 2.5 fs. It also has bottom hinged flaps instead of top and a nice carbon joiner instead of steel. Overall much better. I also have a red spread tow version, and yellow and orange carbon version coming very soon. If you want any of these let me know quickly as the order should arrive here within 2 weeks. The prices pending no crazy unknown expense is $1095 for carbon and $1295 for spreadtow. Wing covers can be ordered separately and I also have have ordered a hardware kit which includes hardware to complete fuse, carbon tubes, spherical ball joints, hatch pin. You will still have to make your own horns for elevator/rudder, but IDS is nice on these .

I really enjoy flying this glider and it's a much better glider than my x 2.5 FS models. Perfect size for our California slopes, can be launched solo. The weight difference is astounding making it far more versatile. I believe the glider is around 3kg and my x was about 5kg. I still have them both.

I also have 4 swifts 2.5 in red spreadtow, and white, orange, and yellow in standard carbon. I will post in the general slope section in the next day or so info and build.

If I didn't have mine already built the red spreadtow looks awesome! Anybody monitoring this thread will get first dibs before I start actively promoting them.
