I have access to a used Swift 16 and wondered if it can lift 2 to 3lbs on 6S pack (with appropriate motor.) ? Probably a Logo or Trex 600E would be better but I can probably get this one very cheap. Besides I'm not going to do AP for contract, just for fun. Both still and video. Any comments will be appreciated (even bad ones :rolleyes

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Logo 10's are about the same size and they are used quite a bit for smaller stuff. I flew one for a year with a point and shoot on an underslung mount on 4S or 13 NIMH and it worked well. Shorter flight times though (about 4 mins).
