    Swift Winds right wing

    anyone else have a hard time putting in his right wing, one pops right in, the other won't go no matter how hard you push, is there a trick to it?

    on the wing it looks like a peg, it matches the hole where the wing goes.

    The wings have two different connectors to tell right from left. I would check the little pegs at the tip of the connector and make sure that you have 2 different sized ones. My left wing was really hard to push in the first time, but now is fine.

    yeah i know, one of them goes in right away, but the other one with the peg in the end won't go in, nothings broke on it, it depends on how you look at it, if you're facing it then i guess it's the left one, but it's right wing overall. anyone have any tips?

    It seems wings may be an issue; personally, I wish the wings were permanent.

    Got my SWIFT WIND today. The left wing doesn't stay in and the right one snapped off two of the three tabs that hold it in as soon as I put in in. And they're not on the wrong sides (the pegs have a little "L" and "R" on them). This is the first time I've had any quality control issues with this line. Super annoying though.

    I had a hard time too, but the wing doesn't pop out at all.

    Swift Wind's wings...how do I get 'em in?

    Mods, please feel free to merge this with any thread that is already discussing this.

    I finally got around to opening Swift Wind, and I know that there have been discussions about the left wing popping out right away. For me, both wings popped out, and I cannot for the life of me get them back in. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Use the hair dryer for about 1 minute to soften the plastic, one of my wings wouldnt pop in so i used the hair dryer, popped in easy and no dramas since.

    I pressed it in really really hard and haven't had a problem since.

    That's the method I tried too, so I guess I'll have to give the hair dryer a shot...thanks!

    just want to make sure you know that the wings are not interchangeable.
