HobbyKing Mini Swift Pusher Setup?
« on: February 07, 2013, 10:16:45 PM »

Dug out my Mini Swift crash kit today and it looks like it could be a good micro FPV platform. One of the things I'd like to do is give it a pusher motor setup, like G's awesome FPV Foxes :D

Just wondering if anyone had any motor recommendations and mounting tips? Should I plonk the motor over the CoG?

Cheers,
-Al

I recently resurrected my old Mini Swift as I needed something unobtrusive to fly while waiting for my daughter whilst she is on basketball training at the local uni.
I`ve not converted it to a pusher ,but have made it 3s capable and it flies great so long as winds are very light.I`m using an Aomway AIO,camera isn`t brill,but its flyable.

  That looked like fun Jake.

 Does the local Uni know your are endangering all of them by flying your Polystyrene "Drone" on their site then...?..lol

  Nice clean feed on your AIO setup too....I wish I knew what a Mini Swift looked like though..? Does Oliver Reed know what you are up to..?...:)

  Ah, like a baby AXN, only it flies better cos its a tractor, not a pusher.
