I'm 100% sure they already read this.

A lack of reply could mean not an issue or being investigated...I vote for the not an issue.

Best of luck!

Well i do see it their way .. because nobody has had simular problems in flight, and its an hard to believe incident + i am up and running again. I got an ARF kit an rebuild the Swift. Luckely the electric parts and batterys survived the crash. Så i got the damaged one for spareparts.

Anyone know what HS i can use on the woodblades? 1600 is not enough so im on about 1800 on them, is that safe on woodies?

The stock 520mm Swift woodies are fine up to 2100 rpm.

Cheers,

As long as you glue the stock woodie blade grips, balance them, and track them, as per the Swift instructions, they are fine up to 2100 rpm. The 1600-1800 rpm limit is one that should be used with 550mm heavier Raptor woodies.

I agree with TomC, I would expect the grip damage to be part of the crash. I've had two crashes with my Swift and both resulted in grips broken as you show in the photo. Are you sure a blade didn't let go in flight?

Glad to hear that you're back together and ready for more flying.

I was out flying at lunch and took a look at the grips. Maybe you're right. After all, mine broke off in my last crash without taking the link off and without bending the linkage. When I looked at it after the crash I was wondering how that was possible.

But like you say, yours is an isolated case and I wouldn't think it would happen again. So you should be able to fly with confidence.

There are so many potential failure points, it's a wonder we get any complete flights. But for the most part, we do pretty well. I'm averaging about 150 flights between crashes. And thankfully the Swift is pretty cheap to repair unless you lose a lipo.

Keep 'em flying.
