outside hand Frisbee style,

I hold the right wing with my left hand, power it up to the point that i feel the wing wanting to fly out of my hand and then gently throw it.

Ones i get to maiden it I'll try to get a friend of mine to make a vid.

Check out the Popwings, they are only 4 inches wider than the Swifts, and the mini Popwings are only 2 inches bigger then the mini swifts-

It is not the same manufacturer, and we have not tried them- anyone else have any info on these- are they as durable?

I do not know how good the HK ones are yet. I just quickly read your post and did not realise you are selling them or I would not have been so rude as to mention the other ones.

Another plug for yours:

That's ok- there is room for a lot of vendors, but I wonder if they are the same- if someone gets one, let us know your thoughts..
Thanks!

A couple of friends have just received them so will know soon how they go.

The two HK ones similar to the MiniSwift and the Swift are a couple of inches wider each so should be great. Just checked the Swift 2 is 800mm wide and the Tek is 900mm but a completely different shaped wing.

It depends what motor and prop you are using as to whether it will work on the "other one". My Turnigy 2730/3000 will power almost anything.

The Teksumo specs are:
15A~20A ESC
2208 1370kv or HK2818 1350kv Brushless Outrunner Motor
7x5 or 6x5 prop
800mAh~1000mAh 3s Lipoly Battery

That is pretty slow stuff so I'd say anything you have would power it.

What motor are you looking at using?

My 3000kv one is only suppose to go on a 2S anyway and goes good. I have all the heavy FPV stuff on it so I do not need a fast plane.

The motor you are talking about goes on a 2S or 3S LiPo but a 3S would be better.

Umh what i picked to my cart on HK is Nano-tech 3s 1000mah 25-50c and 12 amp plush esc, the 2730 1500kv motor and some hxt900 servos. Is that good enough?
And a 7x3,5 prop.

That all should be good. The 12amp ESC is all that is required by the motor specs but I would have gone for at least the 18amp Esc but that is just me.

Time will tell if it is big enough but like I said what you got is suppose to be perfect.

All the stuff you got should be great.

There is a few tricks to putting it together. I mount my motor on the mount with a prop before I glue the mount with thick CA . That way it is easier to see if the mount is straight.
