The SWIFT S-1 is the successor to the Kobuz 3, and is the most successful acro sailplane to date. She proved her worth wiht the World Areobatic title in 1991and led to her being the most successful type at the 1993 Venlo World Championships. We have successfully met the goals of the original in model dimensions.
striking lines and breathtaking areobatic performance are shared by both
the model and the full-sized machine.
Our use of the HQ airfoil and the optional, plug-in wing
extensions, also permits the performance potential in thermic flight to be
scale of 1:3.5 presents gigantic proportions.
If this size seems too much, one can step down to our
smaller version. With more
compact measurements, the smaller model loses only in size against the
larger. Both models are
constructed in full fiberglass (FG) with all control surfaces
gap-freemounted and ready for hook-up.
Wing flaps are available as an option.
