Thanks. I'm wondering if you could find out if a Logo could be used with the Smartmodel tail riser mechanics? I'm not sure what belt/boom differences are between the Swift/T600/Logo mechanics, and what will work with the supplied tail riser parts

New Swift NX tail casing is very easy to install (going over the tube). BTW, Logo t/r is interchangeable with Swift.

1st 5 minutes flight test after switching from CW to CCW main, and adding Vario scale blades (710mm). Needs to increase gain slightly for both ele and ail.

Man I so want one of these systems! But can't afford one. Do you have a build thread on your Swift 16 Cobra? I have a Swift and Smartmodel Cobra coming in and would like to read up on other builds

There is nothing special in mounting Swift 16 into the Cobra. Except either pitch or aileron push/pull link has to be cut on the upper side due to the narrow body, I forgot which one. I did the same to my Century JetRanger using Swift mechanic also.

I believe MSRP of the scale version DJI stab is around $1,600 less than half of the AP version. I will have more info by month end.

I think this is exactly what I want. I crashed one of my helis a few weeks ago, was caused by my lovely health issues (diagnosed possible MS last year).

So from my understanding if I have a flare up and am by myself I can flip a switch and the helicopter will land safe and not crash?

The auto landing feature is with Ace Waypoint only, and it lands after the mission is complete. The scale version will auto hover when you let go the sticks. In short, you'd better to have a buddy with you, so he/she can take control. Landing can be done in auto mode therefore an inexperience pilot can do it with ease.
