Plastic frames on a Swift 550 Carbon
Can I use the Swift 16 plastic frames on the Swift 550 Carbon. I had a little mishap and don't want to spend the $$$ on the carbon?

What would I need to convert this?

Its not going to work out the way you want. Either get the carbon frames or get a swift 16. To many mechanical parts differences to just swap frames.

Bummer,

How about converting it to a 620SE. Would I only need the frames, boom, and belt?

Boom, Belt,frames will make it able to swing 600-620mm blades.

To make it a 620se there is some more cnc parts needed and 4mm flybar, but not necessary to make it into a 50 size electric.

If you get new frames...The 620 frames were designed for the 620 canopy. If you want to use a 550 canopy you will have to make some mods.(moving grommets on the canopy)

Now if you get another set of 550 frames...you can use your old 550 canopy and by moving the canopy posts you can also get the 620 canopy to fit as well.

The 620 frames allow for doubled main gear, If your going to go high voltage then the 620 frames would serve you better, but would need to make mods to make the 550 canopy fit.

Awesome, thanks for the info. I have a fully upgraded metal head, but the 3mm flybar.

If I go with 620 frame and boom, can I swing the 550mm blades. How would that fly. I still have some nice 550 blades, but would like to swing 600 blades later?

Seems to me the key phrase here is "...and don't want to spend the $$$ on the carbon?"

Converting to the 620 C/F frame set etc. would be even more $$$.

I bet you could easily figure out what you needed from just checking out the Swift 16 manual in the customer support area of the Century web site.

Yeah, I didn't want to buy the carbon and at the same time I wan't to use the nice CnC A-arm and other blink parts too. If I'm gonna spend the money might as well GO BIG.

It looks like the new swift NX will be a plastic version of the 550 frame. But who knows when that will be out

Glad to hear that, as I found the plastic frames on my Raven (50 nitro) and Swift 16 to be more crash resistant then any C/F helis I have or have had.
