How compatible are the swift 16 and NX parts?
I have a swift 550, but a crash has damaged the frames. I'd like to put the NX frames on it. Would that work?

I don't know but I'd guess the path to go is to buy the NX (220$) and use your old Swift as replacement wherever it will fit.

You can also take a look at the thread below discussing the NX, some differences are pointed out.

The head and tail would fit. But, add up all the frame pieces, including bearings, screws. landing gear, battery holder, canopy, stickers, etc, and you are over half way to an NX kit.

The frames are not a bolt on fit ,but with a little patience it could be done i think,However I think it would be easiest to order a NX kit,and probably not cost much more by time your done.and then you would have spares.the nx also has some upgrades the 550 doesn't have.Century heli rep. To much power is never enough.

The frames bolt up nicely. I was able to use my metal motor mount and metal elevator assembly and skids. The tail bolted up perfectly. I'm running the 620 boom setup.

The only mod to the frame was to enlarge the holes for the elevator bearings that I used from my 550 carbon. Can't wait to fly this thing
