Product Description

…real one…
The Swift S-1, which first flew in 1991, is a development of Polish manufacturer Marganski & Myslowski located in Bielsko-Biala. Although it has been described as single-place all purpose sailplane, the Swift S-1 is optimized foraerobatic training with erect and inverted clearance of +10/-10 G with one person on board. The landing gear is retractable, and approach control is assisted by Schempp-Hirth airbrakes. This sailplane won the World Glider Aerobatic

Championships in France, 1995. Shortly after the Championships ended, promotional flights were arranged to enable top pilots to fly this aircraft. The Swift has since had several successes at other international competitions.

…our model…
The fiberglass fuselage and rudder are finished flawlessly in white gel-coat. The canopy is glued tp fiberglass frame and comes complete with prepainted frame board. The wing is finished beautifully and ready for your aileron and spoiler servos. The foam core, obecchi sheeted, carbon fiber reinforced wings are easily removed for transportation. All these features give the Swift performance characteristics similar to a fully molded wing while still remaining very light and relatively inexpensive. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. This model is considered one of the best values on the market today.

With its fiberglass fuselage and its carbon fiber reinforced, obecchi sheeted foam wings the Swift S-1 can handle full aerobatic routine. The careful use of composites with competition obechi, creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time.
