The Hawk El is an electric version of the acclaimed Hawk 2 1m DLG. The DLG is very highly rated among glider fliers and I am sure the electric version will be a great success.

The glass Hawk El model is supplied with a strong and brightly coloured glass layup wing, which weighs approx 60 g. The SC Hawk El 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.

The SC Hawk El'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 El version's fuselage is all glass construction. All the servos are installed in the pod to minimise nose weight and yaw inertia. The Hawk El's fuselage is fairly wide however the RC installation is still a fairly cramped. As the only instructions available are various online build logs the model is not ideal 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 El's 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. We recommend that the sewn wing and tail bags are also purchased. These will help avoid transport and storage damage, keeping the glider in top condition.

Note this product is the model's structure only. In addition to the Hawk 2 model these will also be required: RC transmitter, RC receiver, 4 servos, electric motor, prop blades, spinner battery. When gluing in the horns and throwing blade use epoxy or foam-safe superglue. Normal CA will melt the foam core.
