This model has high effeciency and high performance. Using the same wing as the Blade XXL and with a re-designed fuselage, cruciform tail and all moving elevator. The Sword is a very capable plane, the large cross tail is big enough to offer a positive control during aerobatics and slow speed.
It is easily adapted for conversion to electric. The fuselage is big enough to accommodate a brushless motor and the flight pack by leaving out the 2 ballast tubes in the fuselage. The recommended motors are Cyclon 18 geared or the Hacker B50 9L geared 6.7:1. The motors needed must be at least 300W and a diameter of no more than 40mm.
