Swift RTF report..

I am reassembling the head on my Swift RTF and noticed the thrust bearings were dry. I lubed them with LPS 1 which is a light silicone oil. Should I have used grease on these rather than the light oil? Also, I have a missmatched set of thrust bearing races. 3 have thick races and one has a thin race rather than the 2 thick/2 thin combination. Am I still ok with that or should I get the right combination? One comment, the motor mount screws should have loc-tite on them. Mine did not.

Regards,
Dan

Hate it when that happens!

"Johnny Come Lately" but I just had to give a "HAT's Off" to CENTURY on this thread. I'm REALLY big on how a company 1.) Stands behind thier product, AND 2.) customer relations. My very first heli was the HAWK PRO and I learned to fly with it WITHOUT any sim training. I now find that I am in the market for the SWIFT as I am working on a built-up fuselage. BROVO ZULU!!! Century....you done good!!!

Growing OLD is not an option.....growing UP is!!!

As you already have a radio and know how to fly...get one of the Swift combos that have the more powerful motor and 80A esc and set it up for a 5S or 6S pack....you will love it so configured....specially using good digital servos and a 401/9254 gyro combo.

Mine uses the 600+ motor and their 80A esc...but I have also used it on a 6S pack with the 55A ESC, if you want to save a few bucks.

The RTF version is configured for the very basic training type of flying with the 4S pack.

RE:Swift 16 build problem

We have a Swift 16 and it seems to have a strange noise when it first starts up, like something binding. After awhile, the sound becomes normal. Anyone know what this could be?

Is it the Swift RTF or is it a Swift 16 with other equipment (motor/esc etc.)?

It is the Swift 16 that is part of the eCobra we have done. We think it might be the belt that is to tight, as when it is out of the eCobra it does not make the noise, only when we hook it back up to the belt. Everything is already in it and ready to go.

Thanks for any help.........

Hi All,I'm real new at all this. Is Heli World whom you do main business with? Heard some bad stories at some other places. They seem like they have tight relationship w/ Century? Thinking of the RTF Swift. E-mailed them to find the difference w/ the two different ones. The M# CN1044 and the CN1044M1. I read yet couldn't tell. I allready have a bare bones (ATF)Swift kit and don't have a clue. But after reading your posts about us newbee's thought I'd better off starting with the RTF and really piss my wife off; Hope to learn more before buying hi $ stuff for a new build. Not sure about 3D flying but I sure want to build one for Aerial Video. Appreciate your input.
Thanks All!

Welcome Frankcays; I believe that Century and Heli-world are the same. I called Century several times and a rep form Heli-World answered the phone. They were most helpful. The RTF Swift is ok but you might want to by a book about flying a RC heli first. I flew mine first, crashed it, then bought the book. EVERYTHING I did was wrong and no wonder I dumped it! Buy the RTF, take it slow, learn to fly it, then replace the electronics with better units.

Hate it when that happens!

Do you own a simulator?

You can get one instead and practice while you slowly build your kit and learn the programming on your radio to make her as docile as a RTF version and work your way up.

I havent been to the keys in ions and sure miss living there

You'll need to adjust your Radio's Sub Trim settings with the software on the PC.
