About Us

Swift Radioplanes is based in mile-high Prescott Arizona. The company designs and manufactures unmanned aerial systems that match or outperform competitors’ systems for less. Swift Radioplanes emphasizes simplicity, durability, and performance. This design philosophy is easily seen with their flagship UAS, the Lynx M. Lynx is capable of three hour flights, a vertical landing method that requires incredible durability, tool-less assembly, and only three moving parts on the entire aircraft. In addition, Swift Radioplanes is a 333 Exemption holder and offers photomapping services using the Lynx.


Two of the three founding members are US Army veterans with deployments to Iraq flying the RQ-7B Shadow and instrumental in the creation of the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University UAV competition team. All three founding members are rated pilots with both airplane and helicopter experience.
