Swift 100

(1 customer review)

From: $65.00

Our Swift™ 100 was loosely inspired by the 1930s Comper Swift. This ToonScale™ version of the original British classic, features spunky lines and solid sport aerobatic performance.

Unlike other ultra micro designs, our Swift features full 4-channel control. And when paired with the suggested Spektrum electronics and our Park BL180, the well powered Swift zips through an array of exciting aerobatic maneuvers. The Swift’s 3-ounce flying weight, high wing position and low wing loading make for docile low speed handling that will thrill both novice and advance pilot. This fully laser-cut and interlocking design frames in 1-2 evenings allowing you to spend less time building an more time flying. BuildIt!

    Great model and great build experience. This was my first attempt at a balsa wood built model plane. I have built many foam planes (other flying things too) of my own from downloaded plans or kits. As a aviation hobbyist, I felt I needed to get a balsa model under my belt.

    Initially I was skeptical that this light balsa wood, would build into something so structurally sound and straight. I am amazed with the precision that this model was designed and cut to. Everything went together so straight, true, and strong. Additionally, the plans are well written and adequately illustrated. I read everything and looked at the fold out plans.

    This was my first attempt at putting covering on an airframe. This part was a bit more challenging, but after a couple of attempts, it was not a real problem.

    This will not be my last model from Stevens AeroModel.

    I outfitted my Swift with the UMX Timber controller so that i could add navigation lights. I spent a short evening planning this modification to the wing, to accept the lights – it really looks too cool!
