* Layup & colour:


The Hawk and Light Hawk and are great new 1m mini DLGs from Ukraine that fly excellently, especially when considering their very competitive prices. These models launch high and have a good speed range.

The standard Hawk DLG model is supplied with a strong and brightly coloured glass layup wing, which weighs approx 60 g. The Light Hawk DLG version is supplied with a lighter Carboline spread carbon wing weighing 52 g. The SC model especially is exceptionally light, while also being strong and very rigid, allowing high launches. Still air times of 1:30 to 2 minutes can be obtained by strong launchers, and thermal performance and stability is good.

The Light Hawk's fuselage is a one piece (not pod and boom) design of oval cross section, with the front part made from 2.4GHz friendly glass, and the rear from spread carbon. The Hawk version's fuselage is all glass construction. There is an good sized access hatch on the top giving access to the RC installation. The aileron and tail servos are installed in the pod to minimise nose weight and yaw inertia. This does make for a cramped installation, and as only instructions available are various online build logs we don't recommend the Hawk or Light Hawk to inexperienced builders.

The tailplane (horizontal stabiliser) is bolted onto a small pylon molded into the underside of the boom, and the fin (vertical stabiliser) has a perfectly matching hole molded into it, enabling easy mounting onto the end of the tailboom.

The Hawk and Light Hawk wing is solid molded with a glass or spread carbon skin over a CNC cut foam core. The wing has a good surface finish ensuring low drag and longevity. The ailerons are fabricated with a living hinge. The only work required to finish the wings is installing the throwing blade and control horns.

The model is supplied with a very complete accessory pack which includes all control horns, pushrod wires, tail torque springs, tail pull cord, pull cord ferrules, a nice throwing blade and a small glass plate for mounting the servos.

If you have any questions please ask on the RCGroups Hawk 1m DLG from HyperFlight thread. Also see this thread for build info.

Hawk miniDLG

I was able to get a thermal immediately after adjustment. As the center of gravity got in front, we are planning to re-adjust the lipo.
I liked the design and bought it, but the quality of painting may be low somewhat.
