RocHobby Swift Delta Wing High Speed 675mm (27") Wingspan - PNP


27" Wingspan RocHobby High Speed (HS) Swift Delta Wing Racer - Receiver Ready - ROC-005-1

    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. Best bang for the buck! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2016

    This plane is awesome. I bought this plane because I had some 3cell 2200 batteries that I haven't been using and I love fast planes. If you make sure the cg is right on and add a little up elevator on the trim it tracks awesome. I am getting 5 minutes of flight with full throttle about 65% of the time. Take some time and balance the prop (the props were quite out of balance)at those high rpm it will shorten the life of the motor if you don't and affect the top speed. Get this plane you'll be happy you did.

  2. FOUND IT!!!!!!! 5 Star Review

  3. First flight, not so good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2016

    Well, gave it some throtle and heaved it and it rolled over and flew right into the ground, scuffing the foam up pretty bad and breaking the motor mount and propeller. Don't know what to think. I've flown a lot of fast planes, including 850 turbine flights, and I just wasn't expecting this. Anything can happen during a hand launch, as with my Neptune, but I'm usually quick enough to gather it together. Very disappointed.

  4. Instructon Manual 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2016

    Haven't flown it yet, but the build went fine and the quality is good. What I want to comment on is the manual. I've assembled several turbine jets, a couple of gas giant scale and numerous other ARF's, but I've NEVER seen such a complete and understandable manual as this. It is simply incredible, and my hat's off to Roc Hobby for producing it.

  5. 4s update 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2016

    After many flights with this plane, it was time to try a battery upgrade. I used a china hobby 1800 or 1600 4s lipo as it similiar in size to the admiral 2200 3s lipo and crossed my fingers. After trimming out I slowly tried applying full throttle but plane would torque roll and I could not correct enough to keep it flat. After adjusting throws I was able to give it full throttle and have enough control to keep it from rolling. On my pocket speedo phone app, I was clocking over 110mph level out of a dive. Highest I measued was 116 on stock prop. I have held it full throttle for a full circle, probably 10 to 15 secs have had no issues. Probably 10 flights with 4s lipo and no problems with esc motor or battery. I have flown this plane for over 20 minutes at a time easily by going vertical and gliding.This thing will scream on 4s. I have not had any problems with stock setup, I am sure I could puff a battery but have flown full circles at full throttle on a cool day without problems

  6. Scared 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2015

    I just took my Swift out for it's first two flights. First off, if you follow what the manual suggests in throwing it and then spinning up the prop, you will probably have some difficulty. Once I figured out that giving it about 40% throttle worked better, it was away. I loitered around my flying field at about 25% power, (which was about the same speed as my war-birds at 80% throttle) until I got the guts to give it more. During the second flight, I gave myself a lot of room and opened it up all the way. It literally scared the heck out of me. It actually flies a lot more stable at higher speeds but it was going so fast that I only left it full throttle for about 5 seconds. If I let it stay at that speed any longer, it would have pretty much just flown away. So fun! Once I get a bit more used to the speed, I am sure that I will try some gentle high speed turns but for now, high speed runs with the plane perfectly flat are good with me. So impressed how fast this plane is for under $140.

  7. Adrenaline rush and lots of fun 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2015

    From the first flight I have been hooked. It is easy to hand launch and does well at low or high speed. Don't pay attention to the reviews saying the plane has no power. I had to reverse my motor wires to make the motor turn the correct direction but that is one of the easiest things to do when you are testing your control surfaces before flight. I have flown this plane at least a dozen times now and you can hardly tell since it has a rear skid and front wheel! Awesome design idea!

  8. Awesome bird, slow or fast!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2015

    My first flight with the Swift ended tragically, with a nose in so hard the motor mount pulled out. Pilot error, lost orientation in the sun and behind a tree. Rebuilt it with a new airframe in a day, programmed in 60% dual rate and 40% expo, and it flies reliably both fast and slow. Incredible little plane, unlimited vertical, slow enough for a beginner to get oriented, fast enough to be amazing.

  9. You will be in the air in 10 minutes. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Oct 2015

    Lots of fast fun. Only issue I have had is using the recommended CG makes it nose heavy IMO. I just fly mine with the recommended battery as far forward as I can. I think I took some foam at the front of the battery bay in order to move the battery just a bit farther forward. As far as I can tell the Velcro battery straps are useless. I cut mine away. Motion RC is extremely fast on shipping. In fact, this order was shipped the same day and I had this at my door in 2 days.

  10. Pretty quick with a 1800 Mah 1800 65C! 5 Star Review

  11. Yeeeehaaa! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2015

    Had this plane since April 15. Flew once again today..
    After you realize what your flying & how different it is, this is one cool plane, wing, whatever. I've had several 'accidents', some my fault, some not. But once you get used to flying it, figure out the small issues, the field will watch when you are up. And if 3 cells isn't butt squeezing enough for you, try a 4 cell. I'm at 5000 ft guys & this was clocked at 94!
    When you fly this one at the field, behind you, you can hear, "oh my God". LOL Fun plane!

  12. Servo issues 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Aug 2015

    I have been flying this plane for a while now (many flights)
    I really like this plane.
    I find it easy to launch & the speed is pretty much what i was expecting.
    The only negative i have is the crappy stock servos.
    They haven't held center position well since day one & i have had to constantly correct for that in flight.
    I finally spent a little time & money to change the servos (i should have done that right from the start)

  13. Not as fast as I had hoped, 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2015

    I like the plane but needs more speed, I wonder what 4 cell would be right for this plane. Anyone done a 4 cell yet?

  14. FLYS PERFECT 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Apr 2015

    i bought this as my FIRST rc plane after only using a simulator. Went to a field and launched at half throttle. This thing flys like its on rails. I use a 1800 size battery, it seems to glide much better and isnt any slower.

  15. Incredible 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2015

    I have five flights on the Swift so far. MotionRC was excellent, first time ordering from them and it got here quickly (ordered Mon night, here Thurs).

    The plane is absolutely impressive. It screams through the air. I did have to adjust the ailerons, they weren't quite equal and the plane had a tendency to roll. Also adjusted them both upwards (for more up elevator) by 1 full turn.

    This is my first high speed plane. The power it puts out is impressive. It is also incredibly stable in the air (even when gliding), a lot more stable than one of my planes that actually has stabilization. Probably a combo of the speed, small size, and weight.

    Also, one of the hinges has started to come apart at the edge (maybe due to the last landing, or maybe to the forces imparted at speed). I forgot to include the hinge tape in my order, so make sure to do that. The vertical truly is unlimited (running the 3s admiral 2200) and the plane is very responsive to commands. LOVE the sound of it!
