E-Schwing Corsa build log

This build is using the e-schwing fuselage to simply make an electric version of the Schwing glider (a Schwing Corsa here), not a hotliner as this fuselage was primary designed for.

Finished with a pretty nice result:

  • auw: 2380kg – and it is a Corsa 2.75m 😉 – the original e-schwing 88 was 2600kg in 6s configuration
  • 3s lipo 2200mah
  • 500W brushless
  • CG at 99mm – (58gr lead added in the nose !)


  • 4 x BlueBird BMS-125WV – wings
  • 1 x KST X08N MG V5.0 HV – elevator
  • 1 x PTK 9497 MG-D – rudder
  • SunnySky X2220-III 1400kv
  • FrSky G-RX8 & R9 MM (for redundancy)
  • ESC 40A (w/ UBEC 5V)
  • UBEC 7.2V and schottky diodes for redundancy


  • Carbon plate 0.5mm (securing servos)
  • Fiberglass plate 3mm (servo tray)
  • Fiberglass plate 4mm (motor mount)
  • Fiberglass cloth (canopy)
  • Carbon cloth 200gsm (fuselage reinforcement)
  • Epoxy …and microballon


Test result of this outrunner 1400kv… My watt meter reports 45Amp at 75% with 11×6 blades. Which means more than 500 Watts. The traction is huge.
