Information

The Swift measures in at an ultra tiny 4.5 inches (11.4 cm) in length but can reach amazing heights of 750 feet (229 m)! It's easy to build and finish, having just 10 parts including balsa fins for precision performance, a plastic nose cone for durability and cool black and white, easy to apply self-stick decals. No worries about packing the parachute because this high performance mini rocket safely tumbles back to earth after every launch. Talk about dynamite performance, the Swift is a blast to fly!

220 Swift
By matthewbodyk January 10, 2013
This rocket is an easy build and a blast to launch. We have had as much fun launching it as we have had trying to find it.

Not sure I see the point
By wallyum August 20, 2014
Somehow in 37 years of rocketry I'd avoided building a fire and forget rocket like the 220 Swift. I'd bought one, as well as a Quark, a dozen or more Mosquitos, a Custom Sunracer, and a Semroc Triton, but I never had the urge to build any of them. That all changed this spring when I built the Swift, a Mosquito, the Sunracer and Triton during a weekend building binge. I'd taken them to the field with me on a couple of launches over the spring and summer, and even invested in 1/4A and 1/2A motors, but still I resisted the urge to fly any of them until my last time out. The Swift had turned out nicely and was painted in the catalog colors, and I planned to put the decals on after the flight. I had a 1/4A motor loaded, steadied the camera with the burst mode on, and tried to catch a launch pic. I got nothing. Well, not exactly true, I got a smoke trail. I looked up just as the ejection charge sounded and saw nothing. Well, not exactly true. I saw the motor casing coming down, but no sign of the Swift anywhere. Well, not exactly true. I heard the faint sound of something falling down through the branches of the trees on top of the hill. I hiked up the hill and checked the area thoroughly, but found no sign of the Swift. I gather that this happens a lot with these little birds. It counts as a flight, but sure doesn't feel like much of one. Rockets like this might be okay for baseball fields if you're flying from the exact center of the complex and have other eyes to help with tracking, but losing one on a windless day just because the shotgun ejection charge pounds it into the ether is a bit of a let-down.

Great Small Kit
By scottlowery3658 October 26, 2016
This is a itty bitty tiny rocket here. Fun to assemble and paint. You have to cut out your own fins with the supplied balsa sticks. I do not plan to fly this baby as I do not want to loose it.
