Swift 2.5

Semi-scale version of the famous Swift S-1 aerobatic sailplane, developed in the early 1990s from the Polish SZD-21 Kobuz.

Since the beginning of ’90, many RC glider manufacturers have been presenting their own version of this outperforming glider. Also Glider_it has interpreted this project creating a glider able to satisfy pilots looking for performance and fun to fly and those who are just willing to have a precise all-round gliding machine.

Especially the 2.5 wingspan version is the perfect compromise thanks also to its compact size, the presence of both flap and ailerons to be used for different camber settings and butterfly and finally a balanced tradeoff between weight and robustness.
