Yes - convert to the NX sideframe set & the NX constant tail drive system.

But overall, if you are tight for funds - why not sell the 16 and just get the NX, then you will get all the other improvements and changes also, for not all that much of a difference in net cost.

you'll also need the longer main shaft if you don't already have the 3rd bearing block upgrade on the S16.

I built a driven tail Swift 16 ac ouple years ago. The 550 was then rumored to be coming out, and did around same time I finished mine.
I flew it a couple times for auto practice and then made it my helicam platform and built another 16 for a sport ship.

I used the older frame set that didn't allow for the 3rd bearing block. I lowered the tailboom about 1/2 inch and added another main gear on a long shaft meant for the 3rd brg. Used cf plate to reinforce the sideframes and remount the tranny box.

Should've bought a sim. Got a bucket of used blades!
