Review by: Hironori NakajimaFun to Fly
My plane was rudderless and used three XG-6 servos. The center of gravity is 80mm from the leading edge, and the total weight is about 132g.
Comparing the launch altitude between the Hawk2 and the MiniDart2, the HawkPro climbed the highest. In addition, it was easy to ride on thermals. The HawkPro and Hawk2 have completely different airfoils, but both fly smoothly and nimbly.
The HawkPro flies differently when there is no wind and when there is a little wind at launch. Even though the camber setting was the same, when there was no wind, the elevator in launch mode and speed mode was trimmed up by 2 to 3 frames from neutral and rose smoothly at an angle of about 80 degrees. When the wind came up, I thought that nose-up would be suppressed. So, I put it to another trim for about two frames, and it went up smoothly.
In summary, it is an easy plane to fly, but it is a fun plane that changes how it flies depending on how you adjust it.
