- February 12, 2017 - The TechOne ARF BUNDLE version of this airplane requires intermediate level building skills. Some included components such as servos and motors do not come pre-installed and will need to be installed during the build process. Detailed building instructions are included with each model.

its a blast to fly, easy to see if it gets out there a little. performs pretty good for a foamy. nice inexpensive 3-D plane to learn on
I have not completed assembly yet. My review at this point would be premature. However, I would like to say that better documentation would be helpful. There are deviations from spec.
Overall I am a big fan of the Swift. It flies great at low speed and it is going to be my 3D trainer. It is easy to take to the field and access to the battery could not be simpler. I had issues with the servos that came in the ARF bundle, they just would not re-center with any consistency. If you are an experienced 3D flyer and stirring the sticks all the time, then maybe it wouldn't be an issue. But I need some straight lines in my flights and the servos provided made that difficult. I replaced all four servos with Freewing digital servos, which are much better. I also ran some braces from the outboard ends of the horizontal stabilizer to the fuselage to stabilize things as the foam was flexible enough to allow movement of the tail as the tail feathers were actuated. I fly on a grass field and I installed some 3" park flyer wheels right off the bat. I did have the landing gear fall out of its socket once, so I shoe gooed it in place. Overall, I really like the Swift. It flies great, it will make a great 3D trainer and its size makes it easy to see.
I've added a video/flight review on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtNL0L6NhNU
I bought a Dynam and a 43.3 inchTech 1 S-Bach 342 model in March and have just got them built with some problems with Tech ! version. This wasn't my first or 2nd t-1 profile so I expected an easy assembly. There were a few problems with it. Building it wasn't much of a problem till I installed the wing through the fuselage and saw that the wing tube woodwork has a slight slope to it . One wing high and the other low. the framework that supports the C/F tube was misaligned and required a rebuild. Incidentally, Chinese wood is ****. One of the servos had a bad output gear and I replaced it with an FMS metal gear 24 inch lead servo. Two of the F//G servo arm extensions had the outer hole drilled so close to the edge that one broke while installing the push rod retainer. I scrapped the both and made new ones to replace them. Naturally the 30 day warranty was toast so the replacement and rework were on me. The finished model is heavy and I'd rate it below the large Yak 54 and Swift in the fleet. Even with a warranty there are no replacement parts for anything but the power system so support would be a problem for Motion RC. I've flown it and it is adequate but I'd keep in reserve till I wear out the other 2 mentioned. T-1 isn't the fanciest model line that Motion RC carries but I've had a bunch of them and generally they are great value for your modelling dollar. However QC is not perfect and Motion RC cannot open every package and inspect everything. Chalked this up as an anomaly and moved on.
I now have about 8 flights on this and it is a very good flyer. But I'd make a few recommendations for improvements. Include the 12 inch servo extensions and the Y harness with the kit. The extra cost is negligible and makes the package complete. Do the same for the rest of the models in this series. The fiberglass servo arm extensions and the badly engineered push rod wire attachment pieces should be removed. It is at best an inferior way of doing something that should be simple. Use longer stiffer servo arms and use Dubro pushrod attachments with decent retentions methods to keep control pushrods permanently attached. Nail polish is no better than acetate glue and I've seen flyers have failures with them. Also they should supply a tail wheel assembly for this model. I made one for the model as I rarely hand launch and don't want to wear the back of the fuselage down. The build is easy and outside of my previous comments on the control set up no problems were encountered. I used a 6 channel servo to eliminate the Y harness and it allowed me to tidy up the wires at the receiver. It is heavier than the other EEP models in the series that I've assembled and after flying it I think that it could use more power. It is sluggish in some of the maneuvers and I didn't have a large assortment of props to get maximum performance from the motor supplied. With an 1800 MAh battery flights of about 4.5 minutes are average with only periodic full throttle used . I think that 2200 would be too heavy and am reluctant to try it. More duration should be expected. Side note. Using 6 channel radio will let you have flaperons or coupled flap/ elevator It opens up some fun things that you can do with the model. As previously mentioned it is in spite of my minor misgivings it is a very good flying plane and give a lot of **** for the buck.
Bought this plane to learn 3D. I have been putting it off for years. Always found something I wanted a little more. I found this plane pretty easy to assemble. I took the landing gear off as I found flying it in grass the landing gear and grass don't mix. The first flight the grass grabbed onto the landing gear and ripped it out. One thing I don't like is the props. I found they are very cheap. Even the lightest of landings will break the prop. I have flown it four times and broke two props. I just decided to use one that I had laying around and found it to be much better. Overall I really like the plane, I am glad I bought it.
