Swift S-1 from Composite RC Gliders


The Swift S-1, on a scale of 1:4.6, is absolutely directional and accepts all control commands excellently. Perfectly stiffened rudders ensure a fine feeling of flight and top control even with crisp manoeuvres.

Even if the Swift S-1 is primarily designed for aerobatics and high speeds, it also performs very well in thermals in its speed range.

When landing, the Swift S-1 can be braked excellently with the butterfly position and is always easy to control.

The model is manufactured in CNC milled molds. This guarantees a high level of quality in every detail. The layup and spar construction is based on our Stingray and is absolutely final in its execution and ensures that the Swift S-1 will not be broken in the air.

Since we want to give you every opportunity to "enjoy" the model as much as possible, the standard kit contains not only the wiring harness but also all the materials for massive linkages for all rudders.

Although I do my best to complete this library, you may not find the model you are looking for.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
