Description

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

The glass Hawk DLG model is supplied with a strong and brightly coloured glass layup wing, which weighs approx 60 g. The SC Hawk 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 SC 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 glass 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 the only instructions available are various online build logs we don't recommend the Hawk or Light Hawk for 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 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. Some very nice sewn wing bags are now available at a small extra cost. These will help avoid transport and storage damage, keeping the glider in top condition.

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

Hawk Light

This is just a follow up on my previous review. The Hawk light has now been completed. Building the Hawk was straight forward and having only basic building skills posed few problems. There are some excellent articles re the build on RC Group.com
My configuration is as follows, 2 stacked Blue Bird HV at the rear for the ailerons and 2 Blue Bird HV in line towards the nose activating rudder and elevator. The receiver (LM 6Ch SH DMS2 compatible) is located at the top of the rudder/elevator servos. Battery is a Nano Tech 2S 300ma placed forward. I opted for a 300ma battery to save weight even so a larger battery could have been accommodated.
My setup followed the recommendation put forward by Hyperflight with a CG of 53-54mm, this CG setting proved adequate however my personal preference is a slight nose heavy setting. Adding 5gr of lead beside the battery gave me that in flight behaviour at a new CG of 55-56mm.
In flight the Hawk is agile and responsive and penetrates well even in winds up to 11knots. All in all I am delighted with my purchase.

Light Hawk or Nightmare Hawk

In my opinion really poor design regarding the space for the electronic. No instructions on how to be able to squeeze in the markets smallest servos and still barely any space left for the batteries. Save your money on this model, don’t buy it!


 Review by:

Hawk Light

Exquisite workmanship. As on previous occasions the process of ordering has been effortless. The Hawk Light was well packaged and delivery to Australia was made within 7 days. Building has now commenced and soon the Hawk will join the gaggle consisting of the Auri and Malibu.

Fantastic kit

The finish quality of this plane is unreal.Straight forward build, incredible flyer. Will be getting the full carbon version as soon as it is available.

Hawk DLG Order

I ordered a Hawk DLG glider from hyperflight.
The model arrived the following day and was packaged very well. The model quality is excellent and I’m looking forward to the first flight.
Excellent service and will use again soon, probably for a 1.5m design.


 Review by:

Beautiful object

Beautifully designed and constructed. Flying weight 111g with no ballast required, FrSKy Rx, Blue Bird Servos and the Radient 400mAh LiPo. (Carbon version.) cg 55mm. It is all a tight fit that needs planning, but it can be made to work.


 Review by:

Hawk

The solid package arrived within one week in Germany very well. The quality of the Hawk is very good. It launches high. It can also be flown on the slope, because of the thin wing. Thanks to Hyperflight.


 Review by:

Small but perfectly formed

Beautifully made and ultra light air-frame. Very tricky to fit 4 servos, battery and Rx so needs a lot of patience, trial and error. Not flown yet but no reason to suppose there will be any problems from the model.


 Review by:

Fragile yet strong

First of all, great service at Hyperflight thanks. This is a small fragile plan. A bit difficult build. There is very little room for servos, batt and receiver. There is no manual for this plane which I would have loved to have had. Flies great, can handle tough landings. It’s definitely worth the money.


 Review by:

Perfect, fast and spot on service ! Neil kept aside my order during the week time it took to pass through my bank security check for international bank transfers. Many thanks !

Beautiful manufacturing for the price !
Hawk not mounted/tested yet, waiting for christmas electronic gears ;o)

I love my hawk and fly most of time.
Build was nice and easy little bit fiddly getting servos in fuse. Would highly recommend .


 Review by:

Great service

Ordered Hawk DLG and then the servos for the Hawk. Both times service was very quick. Will be using hyperflight again for further purchases.


 Review by:

Amazing!!

Got this along with a set of 4 BMS-101DMG's within a week of purchase, shipped in the EU. Extremely fast and good service! With no previous experience building a kit or DLG's with good performance, this was kind of a leap. I recommend going through the forum threads before you start going if you're new. With limited time this summer i skipped all the good advice on throwing the stuff included out. And with care it seems everything is still working well for the moment. Servoes are working ok for me, nothing special but price is right i guess. Flying at 54ish mm Cg, 125g RTF (380mah 1s). Wondering if you'd be better off with a 1.5m but budget holding you back? For a beginner (in dlg) like me this will probably have all the performance needed for me to grow for a long time. Climbs well, launches good and goes well for its size.


 Review by:

Amazing little ship!

Ordered this and had it in hand in just over a week. The larger high performance 1.5m birds were just a little out of my price range so this fit the bill. You definitely need to have a grasp on building models before you attempt to put this one together. The quality of this plane is amazing. The fuselage is designed to be just big enough to hold the required equipment, so be prepared to dry fit everything to make sure you get the layout and CG right. Enough about the technicalities, she flys great. It signals lift very well and has a broad speed range. Time to land just drop the flaperons and she’ll float right into your hand. Would love to get the all carbon version soon.


 Review by:

A super lightwight small DLG in excellent quality. There is limited space in the nose, so it is a good idea to check the RC groups forum for details.


 Review by:

fast shipping

I ordered it on Friday last week and got it on Tuesday. I live in Colorado. Quick shipping and well packed.

Very lovely small glider! Fast shipping and very well packed! THX


 Review by:

Hawk 1 meter

Outstanding craftsmanship, fantastic price. Research it BEFORE buying electronics as there is VERY limited space. 5 Stars.


 Review by:

Hawk DLG

The shipment was very fast (even on French Post side !!!). The packaging seems to be able to resist severe events. All the hardware inside was in perfect condition. The assembly of the Hawk is in progress, it is definitely not for a beginner. Lot of help to be found in the links proposed by Hyperflight. A building manual would however be welcome, even a very simple one.


 Review by:

Excellent DLG

I ordered the glass version as my first DLG and assembly was relatively straightforward. I found that 2/1mm carbon tube and 0.7mm piano wire made much smoother push-rods than those supplied in the kit so probably best to order these items along with the kit. I used 4x BMB-101DMG servos, an FrSky RX4R and 1S 260mah lipo. All up weight around 116g.

She flies very well, I've had a couple of afternoons in the park and several good flights despite my lack of experience.

I've been informed that Hyperflight do have spare parts available which is reassuring to know as the fin/stab are quite delicate.


 Review by:

Fantastic flyer

Great 1m class DLG. Glider flies fast when it needs to, and good energy retention.
Bought the glass (not carbon) version, came in just under 118g with 4 Dymond D47's, Frsky G-RX6 and 2S 240mAh battery. Could shave a couple grams by removing servo connectors and Rx pins, plus switching to carbon should get well under 110g. Fuselage is a little tight so it takes a bit of planning to get everything in right.


 Review by:

Lovely DLG-no spares

Just started building the Hawk enjoying part quality and fitting. For month I have tried to first get some spares e.g. fins, rudder to stock for some potential damages. Sadly this bird seems not supported with spares ...worldwide! Consequently you may have to consider buying a second one which, considering price, may make sense the most.


 Review by:

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.
