trial and error
The plane came quickly, goes together well and the CG is all over the place for me. I read a lot of reviews and watched all the videos, most were junk and taught me nothing about the plane, just people flying it or crashing it. I crashed it four times on launch. I've been flying 3 years, Another pilot with 30 years flying experience had the same issues, going through props and nose cones after setting and re-setting the expo, rates and trims another pilot,(instructor) at our field was able to get it to fly after two attempts. It is a hand full and fast, you have to stay on it all the time and stay focused. It gets out of sight quick at half throttle. It is a rush and very exciting to fly.... I fly the little ME163 all the time and for money its the same rush and easier to fly. It also gets out of sight quick, but none of the launch issues and just as much fun. Once we figured out the Swift, he is fun and flying him now is a hand full but enjoyable. No one can tell you what battery is best, how to set up your throws or Expo, its all on you. I found for me he flies best with a 2200mAh,3s, on low rates 45% and 20% Expo. On high rates, at 60% throw and 20% Expo he is a handful crazy quick turning and always turning him to keep him close. DO NOT park fly him. He is loud and gets away fast. thats my two cents.... Buy lots of extra props and nose cones, you will need them before you figure out how Swift launches. Throw him at 10:00 ,3/4 throttle, with a dart like motion is what I have learned for my style.
