Smile Swift II Nightflyer

Well I finally got decent video of my Swift II nightflyer!
Added some Green 10mm LEDs to the winglets.
Next I'm gonna add a strobe to the underside....

Thanks Hank, I'm glad you like it!
If you've seen my other posts regarding the build you'll know that I had a lot of trouble with the COG and keeping the nose down. In the end I just decided to scrap the idea of 1000mah batteries in favour of the 2200mah batteries I took from my powerboat.
Slow flying capability has been hit but I think more than compensated for by the double length flight times! I may try an 8 x 6 on her as soon as the weather gets decent enough.
I love this wing!

Default Took mine out the other night

This Wing is one of the most relaxing Night flyers I own or flown. If you own one and have not added some LEDs you are really missing out. It can be flown fast, slow or as I like it medium.


Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.
