The testing and perfecting of the powered wing swing mechanism was accomplished, and various videos have been posted about it on YouTube and Face Book. We could have opted have this be done manually, but since the tail will be moved electrically, we wanted to provide the same for the wings. It really does make things easier, and James Bond would have wanted it that way.

There was quite a bit more to perfecting the wing swing than simply hooking it up and turning the switch. It would have been nice if it were that easy, but to produce something that employed a simple design, would swing the wings in a reliable manner, and would be easy to maintain, we had to work through several approaches.

With all that in mind, please enjoy our main swing video at:
