Went outside my house today to try the swift at AP for the first time, worked really well, lifted a HCS Sport 30 mount with no trouble. Here are some test shots. Enjoy!!

I love AP. Nice job! What battery are you using? Doe the heli have any trouble lifting your gear?

BTW...
what is the weight of this mount plus cam?

I'm using a kontronic 45-10 so I don't know in comparison to the one you're using.

It did not have a problem lifting it at all, was hovering at about 3/4 stick, heli wiegh's 5.5lb, camera mount with everything wiegh's 2lb 14oz
the batt I used that time was a Apogee 4950mah 6s2p 10.5c rated.

Your Tango 45-10 is a better motor than the one I got, its got a bit more power.

When I landed the batt was only warm, I didn't have my temp gun to check the motor, but I could hold my finger on it forever, it was hot but not overheated by anymeans.

Nice setup !

That is with the Mega motor right?! Wow 2lbs 14 oz!! That swift can carry a load.

BTW: What size blades you using ?

** did you use the standard self tapping screws for the tail boom mount?
Ive read some have used a longer 3mm bolt.

Yup thats with the mega motor, blades are Rotortech 515, and yes I used the self tapping screws for the tailboom mount.

Thanks
