27" Wingspan RocHobby High Speed (HS) Swift Delta Wing Racer - Receiver Ready

    We clocked the RocHobby Swift at over 90mph on our Pocket Radar while flying with an 11.1V 3S 2200mAh 30C battery. Not only is this plane fast but it also is very well mannered and very aerobatic. Want some vertical to go with the speed? No problem. The RocHobby Swift has unlimited vertical. You will be absolutely amazed at how quickly the Swift will reach extreme altitudes. The wings and fuselage are a single piece of EPO foam with carbon rods molded in for maximum strength and durability. In addition, the nose cone is a magnetic break away design, the servo pushrods are top mounted for maximum protection during belly landing, and there is a skid plate on the bottom to protect the fuse and the rear mounted propeller. This is by far one of the fastest and most adrenaline pumping planes we have ever flown! The RocHobby Swift is very simple to assemble so you can be in the air in about 30 minutes. Although this plane is capable of extremely fast speed, it is very well mannered and has no bad habits. Hand launching is a breeze, just set to half throttle and throw into the wind. We think FMS really has a winner in the RocHobby Swift. Watch Ryan fly the Swift in the flight demonstration video below. His reactions are priceless and we think yours will be too. This is absolutely one of the most fun and exciting RC planes we have flown lately.

  1. not so swift

    Posted by chad kraig on 25th Mar 2014

    Bought thinking this will be a fast plane. Ive had it for about 3 months now and still to this day can't get it to hand launch very well. top speed is about 50 with pocket radar. Vibrations will not go away. Motion has been great with help from form and support. But nothing has worked. Flown about 3 times and every landing has broke the prop. grass, dirt, and of course pavement. Wont be buying anymore small wanna be fast planes with NO landing gear. Not sure how all the rest of you have had such great success. But with me Three strikes and you are OUT. Sorry Roc Hobby. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

    *** Motion RC Response ***
    Chad - if you would still like help getting your model working please call or email our tech support team. The Rochobby Swift is one of our top sellers and it's definitely a very fun, very fast (90+ MPH) plane. From what you are describing with 50mph speed and vibration during flights, you likely have an issue with your power system (ESC, motor, prop) which we can help troubleshoot and provide replacement parts if necessary. Please contact us, we want to get you flying again.


  2. built well

    Posted by Robert Still on 4th Mar 2014

    Very cool, very fast, built well and priced right !


  3. High Speed Swift First Flight

    Posted by Garry on 6th Feb 2014

    I had 2 crashes prior to successfully flying my swift. I had to increase the reflex in the elevons to keep it from nosing into the runway during hand launches. Increase the nose up elevator to be just slightly more than the thickness of the elevon, measured at the rear. I think this should have been set on the model or mentioned in the instruction manual! It flew great using a 2200mah 3 cell and lands like a dream. This model is absolutely the fastest I have flown. I have ordered a Moray and expect it to be faster. Tough, fast model! :)


  4. Fast

    Posted by Ray on 20th Jan 2014

    What a good flying delta wing...Don't have to fly it at full throttle but what a blast if you do. No issues so far.. Great Job Motion RC & RocHobby


  5. swift !!

    Posted by jeff on 18th Dec 2013

    What a great flyng wing wait a insane speed demon very fun u guys rock again. Kinda nose heavy with recommend batt but im happy with it


  6. Crazy fast

    Posted by TSC on 17th Oct 2013

    Still one of my favorites with no issues other than prop adapters out of stock. J Bruce, Update us on the 4.75 x 4.75 prop???


  7. Yup Yup YYUUPP!!!

    Posted by Ric on 12th Oct 2013

    This is my 3rd delta wing and this is by far the best yet ... My goodness ...just the sound of the engine turns heads but when u open her up ..... Strap in cuz this baby GOES !! Str8 out of the box it balances very with the 3S 2200mah but I must say I cannot wait til I try it with a 4S battery ... I'm almost alil nervous lol .. Great Job MotionRC & RocHobby


  8. Screamer!!!!

    Posted by TSC on 30th Sep 2013

    Hard to describe how fun this plane is to fly. Incredibly fast but yet very stable. Smooth gliding plane that doesn't stall very easily on landings. My new favorite. The only con is everything else I fly seems slow!! You will not be disappointed.


  9. FAST

    Posted by MIKE STECIW on 28th Sep 2013

    Very fast and stable. If you are going to run 4s cut down to a APC 4.2x4 prop.


  10. Fun Little R ocket

    Posted by Gabe Martin on 22nd Aug 2013

    Maiden flight on wed. The most fun you can have for the money. The C.G. is right on the money. Three cells is fun, but four cells is a wild ride! Thanks for the great service.


  11. Da sh*t is right

    Posted by High speed epoxy on 15th Aug 2013

    What more could a rc pilot ask for. Flies great fast, flies great slow. At least a 6 min. flight with plenty capacity left on a 2200mah pack. Easy to land, and glides for ever. Once lost orientation and nosed into the ground wide open. After seeing this, I never would have thought it would fly again. An hour and a half and a fair amount of 5 min. epoxy. I am back in business and still flying this way. The battery was destroyed! Still a blast to fly.


  12. THIS PLANE IS THE SH*T

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Aug 2013

    Move over styker, theirs a new sherriif in town called the swift that is insanely fast as well as fun to fly. Buy one or two you won't be dissappointed or regret it.


  13. Maiden flight results...very nice.

    Posted by J Bruce Iuppa Jr on 14th Apr 2013

    Maiden flight today. A little bit of wind, but it really doesn't matter. I flew this first on 3s. It was fun, not really anything super special as far as speed. 2nd flight was on 4 cell and this is where the differences started occuring. Think of these really as observations. First off...both flights were successful. Not a single click of trim on anything necessary. Absolutely perfect. On 4s....it climbs straight into the sky. Contrast that to 3s where it dipped pretty low to the ground before having enough speed to start climbing. On 4s...vertical is unlimited. If you don't stop...it's not stopping. My buddy was flying his Moray (also from MotionRc) on 4s and they were comparable. I've ordered a 4.75x4.75 prop for this. Hopefully that will take this over the top as far as speed. Another observation. Not a lot of elevator movement. I'll be moving mine into the closest hole. At speed it doesn't matter, but on low speed landing it will come in handy. It's a sweet plane.


  14. First Impressions, first flights this coming weekend

    Posted by J Bruce Iuppa Jr on 11th Apr 2013

    It's a little bigger than I thought it would be, and that's a good thing. 4 screws and you're done. The two hatches (one for battery, one for rx and esc) are held on by magnets. The battery compartment is big. It's obvious where the battery is "supposed" to go, but when I put the battery in that position I had to add 3.5 ounces of led to the front to achieve balance at the stated cg. Rather than keep that extra weight, I ended up modifying the battery compartment (hot wire foam cutter) so I could push the battery literally...all the way to the nose. With a 2200 3s all the way to the front it balanced

    This plane has a 50amp esc. With stock prop and 3s 2200, at full throttle it pulled 30 amps. I just had to see what it would do with 4s... Full throttle...47 amps. I'm going to fly this with 4s. We'll see how it goes.
