Correct. The friction fit has proven to be sufficient.

Hi Martin,

Nice looking product!

Is the Swift a Pitcheron?
Does the rudder or elevator move?

Not a pitcheron. Functions are aileron/flapperon/elevator/rudder.

Build manual here. Extreme engineering, very innovative design.

Apologies Martin,

This question is actually directed to me.

John,

CR Aircraft is currently closed in observation of Ca Shelter in Place ordinance. Target had reached out to me, on your behalf and I responded via my Email (at least to who I thought he referred to). Sorry, I didn't have a RCG name to PM.

Let's hope this situation gets under control and we can get back to business, as usual.

Chip

We received quite a good amount of pre-orders already and we are very excited to start shipping the first kits soon. To make the waiting period a little more bearable we shot another short video at one of my favorite flying spots. 😉 Tick Point close to Muir Beach did not show its most beautiful and sunny side but still it was a magical scenery with the fog rolling in from the pacific.

I hope you enjoy the video! 😁

I can report that I have flown the Swift in winds up to 25mph. But if you want to fly in strong winds like that I would recommend a solid steal joiner for more ballast. This one for example.

What wind speed range is it suited to ?
