    That's excellent. If you don't have it, get it. It's a fun plane to fly. Mine has been modified, though, with an up-rated engine like the Lopresti version.

    Hi Sundog,

    Would you mind telling us what you did to uprate the engine?

    And thank you AeroplaneHeaven and Baz for this wonderful gesture!

    Much appreciated, it's a fun model and a generous gesture. Mind you, by the time I've worked out how to take off in a straight line we should be through this whole Corona virus thing....

    I agree. For once I found it better to bang in the throttle at once rather than delicately feed in the power.
    Rats - why won't anything work properly first time?

    I can't remember whether the Swift has a tail wheel lock. Don't think it has of the top of my hat. If it doesn't and you are having trouble with the large rudder then you could try a couple of things.
    Add a tail wheel lock entry to the Aircraft CFG and use a key stroke or maybe edit the steer angle entry to 0 in the contact points section.

    Thank you so much AH! I just took her for a quick spin. This will help occupy the time.

    Well, the Swift A had an 85HP engine and the Lopresti Swift Fury had a 200HP engine. So I took the Power Scalar in the aircraft config, which is originally 1.2 and multiplied it by (200/85). To truly model the Lopresti I should also adjust the drag and the propeller, but I was just going for quick and easy now. So in the aircraft config, just find the following section and change it to the number shown;

    [piston_engine]
    power_scalar = 2.82

    Regards,
    Ken

    It really does need this for more spirited flying. It is a Globe "swift" rather than a Globe "amble" after all. We went with the purity of the original, happy in the knowledge that the community will make those sorts of adjustments should they require it.

    Bazz and Airplane Heaven, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your generous gift. Having this little jewel I can now personally attest to the attention to detail and superb product you and your team create. I will definitely check in with you from time to time at your new releases. You have an excellent team... Thank you again... Terry

    Thanks Bazz for the very nice gift to the SOH and flightsim community.

    Saw one years ago and thought it was beautiful. Here's a pic from a few years ago.

    Hello, All-

    I saw one of these for the first time many years ago at a little airshow in central Ohio with my father, and have been hooked ever since. Thanks to all at AH for a very generous gift!
