Product Information

The airframe of the Seagull Swift 40 Trainer is conventionally built using balsa, plywood and veneer to make it stronger than the average Almost-Ready-To-Fly, yet the design allows the RC plane to be kept light. You will find that most of the work has been done for you already for quick assembly. The pushrods are pre-made to the correct lengths, the motor mount has been fitted and the hinges are pre-installed and pinned for security. An optional electric conversion kit is included so you can choose between glow/nitro or electric-powered flight.

You have the possibility as a rookie to change the landing gear to a Tail Dragger or a Tricycle for the different learning processes. It truly is a plane designed for those who are just starting in model aircraft!
