Ultra compact and easy to assemble, the Swallow Jet Micro EDF park jet is as fun to fly as it is to build. The wings arrive in one piece making assembly a breeze. You will require a 40mm EDF unit, two 2.5gram servos, a 15Amp ESC, a 7.4 2s 500mAh lipoly battery and your own transmitter and receiver to complete this model. Control rods and general fittings have been included, all you will need is a little Cyano, kicker and 30 minutes of spare time!

The Mini Swallow is a great little EDF*****
My Setup: Hyperion Kv 5800 - 2 micro servos 3,7 / 7,4 grams - Orange RX 410 receiver - Turniggy Plush 6 A - Lipo 2S 350 mAh.
Totaly weight 118 grams - Flying time by 75pcnt Thro abbout 5 minutes.
But you have to move the EDF between 30 and 40 mm forward, if you dont do that, you get problems with the CG, or a much higher weight!!!
You can also use a Feigao-motor, much power by low weight; i cant get one i Denmark :-(
I want to try a 3 S setup later; maybe i take a video in springtime.
Best regards from.First of all: it does fly. 200g and above is obviously way too heavy, mine's about 170g with 2s and a solid 180g with 3s. I prefer the 3s setup, 2s makes it difficult to start due to a lack of thrust.
It's very easy to build, not so easy to fly (very instable) but sturdy enough to survive a series of attempts. For the money, it's not bad at all.Summary: Does not fly.
Details: I do have only simple 4ch radio, so I used Turnigy V-tail mixer.
Other is 40mm EDF plus 8400kv engine, Hobby King 3.7g / .4kg / .10sec Micro Servo, Turnigy 18A Basic 3.1 ESC.
With this model weights 160g without battery (reccommended fligh weight is 140-160g in materials.
With 850mAh nanotech total weight is 212g.
I do not expect that model would be totaly unflyable even with this higher weight...
Very touchy on rotation, pull up with this on board does not work. Will try it with better radio (expo, mixing) and let you know...
But generally look for something more tested. Should have been warned by that I could not find any video of Swallow jet flying... not even 1 on Youtube.
Only plus is material that survied all my crashes, just little of CA fixed that.Nicely molded EPO. Looks like very simple construction. I may paint mine bright orange and use the included decals, apparently this plane is the "pig-nose flyer". Great stuff, can't wait to get it together.Recieved this morning, have gone through all of the parts and this is a quality product for the price, the EDF40 with 8400kv motor fits perfectly into the body, the servos are nice and snug, an easy build.
Sprayed with foam safe paint, the build took about an hour.
Looks great and is very quick...........Thanks HK another great product.Received it this morning:
- the wing comes as one piece
- all the structure's made of strong EPO
- HK "EDF40 with 8400kv Motor Assembled" fits perfectly
- beautiful design and aerodynamics
- there are slots in each wing if you want to reinforce with some carbon fiber.
Thanks HK for making this cheap model that will scream on the airfields !
