The Hawk RTF is a great 1m mini DLG from Ukraine that is built beautifully and flies excellently. The Hawk 1m DLG launches high and has a good speed range. We now have some Hawks available almost ready to fly, with just the receiver needing to be supplied by the buyer. These models have the servos and the linkage beautifully installed. All control horns have been fitted and the throwing blade has been expertly fitted to the left wing, making these models suitable for right-handed throwers (though a left-handed launcher could fit a throwing blade to the right wing also).

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. Due to the tight RC installation we do not normally recommend the Hawk for inexperienced modellers but this version with the servos installed is perfect for everyone.

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 and the control horns and throwing blade have been expertly installed.

Some very nice sewn wing bags are available at a small extra cost. These will help avoid transport and storage damage, keeping the glider in top condition.

To connect the elevator use a servo tester or your transmitter to command full down elevator. Then pull on the elevator wire to expose the loop hidden in the tail mount pylon. Use tweezers or a little hook to pull the loop out of the pylon, then place it over the hook cut into the elevator control horn. If you have any questions please ask on the RCGroups Hawk 1m DLG from HyperFlight thread. Also see this thread for build info.

Hawk 1m DLG RTF

A beautiful little plane. Ordered Monday, arrived safely Wednesday and finished today. Struggled to get the MPX RX 5 slim in as rudder servo was restricting space. Discussion with Neil suggested that I'd probably be o.k sans rudder, so out came the rudder servo. Perfect fit now for battery, the three remaining servos and the Rx. Needed 10 Gms of ballast to balance at 55 mm behind L/E. Very thin strip of carbon fixed into rudder hinge slot prevents rudder movement, after removal of torsion spring. Looks so smart, can't wait to get it flown. Looking at Neil's front page support banner for Ukraine makes me so sad, all this lovely engineering comes from the various cottage industry there. I have lots of Ukrainian friends built of over many years of free flight modelling adventures. I will leave you with tonight's response from friend Vasyl in besieged Kharkov " Dear Gary. Yes, we're alive. We are scared but brave. Still on line to talk to the world. For now anyway". Pray for them all, please.

Nice, but...

Nicely built dlg, goes together well. Needed 20g of lead in nose to balance, servos could have been installed further forward to help this so not great and aileron servos don't centre very well as tubes seem sticky.

Flys well, but, would be better without the extra nose weight.

Great service well packed came without battery so I emailed and battery came next day . Very impressed with overall quality. Just need to fit my receiver and get out there . Can't wait.....

Hawk DLG build

As the other reviews state, the packaging and shipping are second to none. The servos are installed and placed properly. Linkages are all set up except for the rudder and it's 90% there. One thing is a bit tricky, the loop on the elevator pull wire is inside the opening of the fuse. Without being told this it appears you need to pull the servo and set up it up again.. DON"T DO THAT! I almost did until Neil set me straight. (very patient guy by the way) pull it out with a little hook or something and you will understand. Over all the pre build on this is very good.
It is a DLG and the fuse is very small. Be mindful ordering batteries and use a micro receiver. I had to add alot of weight, 10gr, to get it to balance.

Overall the build quality is A1,. hard to wrong with this DLG

Great Product

I am based in Southern California and I ordered this DLG as soon as it came back in. Glider arrived very quickly and extremely well packed with no damage. Installation of servos and control lines was really helpful as this has such a tiny space for all the electronics. Highly recommend this supplier they are great to work with and very careful in ensuring the safety of their products during shipping. Haven't flown it yet but hopefully this weekend!

Excellent packaging and delivery. On assembly slight niggle with ailerons not centering. Modify pushrod for better alignment. Very nice DLG, superb flyer.

What a superb little dlg. Excellent construction
Prompt delivery with great packaging. Servo failed but Neil replaced no problems.

First encounter with a 'proper' DLG. Was attracted to the Hawk because it was complete, no building required. This was a great way for me to see how it was to be done, without the worry of having to improvise with a kit, now there is a great reference to see how best practice looks, much more confident in purchasing a kit now.
The Hawk is beautiful finished, everything wanted. A great size for keeping in the van, wonderful fit and finish. Graphics are great and very helpful as the underside flashes are very different to the upper surface design, orientation will be much improved over the plain all over colours I'm used to. As a relative newcomer to DLG, the overall experience is of a plane that will be a cherished. Not had a flight yet, waiting for conditions to be better for initial set up, confidence is high.

Neil is a cracking chap and a joy to ask questions to, none of the monosyllabic yes or no answers many of us have become accustomed to. A passionate and knowledgable man who clearly has probably forgotten more that I know. It's a comfort to purchase from a person who has such knowledge and passion for his products. Never once felt like a pest for asking questions and feel confident I could ring and ask anytime and he would very likely be interested and motivated to put me on he right track. Highly recommended, wonderful plane and a special buying experience that will lead to a long time association for sure. Thank you Hyperflight.

Carbon RTF Hawk

Bought another carbon RTF Hawk as a back-up ship....Arrived well boxed and undamaged, as expected from Neil...Red on carbon, on top of wing...Bright green stripes underneath....All set up now ready for service when called upon!!!

Two glass Hawks!!!

Flight report on our two glass Hawks.....CG 55mm...They seem to fly just as well as the carbon jobs, although the carbon ship hangs a little better in the heat above the grass...This next week I'm gonna fly it along the small sand berm on the beach in Huntington Beach, CA...Should be good!!!

Two glass Hawk RTF's

Our two glass Hawk RTF's were shipped from England on a Thursday and arrived in our grubby hands in the USA mid-day the following Monday, boxed beautifully and in excellent shape...The SD100 servos in these are larger than the BB101's in our carbon jobs, so the AR 410 receivers have been de-pinned and servo lines soldered directly to the board...That big goofy capacitor was taken off the receiver board and epoxied behind the servos, under the wing area, with a couple of lines running to it...The receiver board fits nicely on top of the front servos with the battery in front of that, in the nose, and the balance is spot on!!...Waiting for better weather here to have a fling!!...Thanks again Neil

Nice model, bad shipping

The build quality of the model was great. Unfortunately, when my Hawk arrived the package had been smashed and the fuselage was broken and the wing was dented by the same event. I was able to repair the fuse and Neil offered to give me a partial refund. His customer service and support after shipment was great despite the challenging situation.

Two Hawk SC RTF's!!

Ordered two carbon Hawk RTF ships....Got here to the USA in under a week and boxed damage...Came with the HyperFlight 150mah NiMH battery which fit nicely in the nose...We (My girlfriend and I) are using Spektrum AR410 antenna-less receivers with the covers off, which fit nicely behind the servos and halfway under the leading edge of the wing...balanced nicely at 55mm from leading edge without any additional weight...These things are perfect for the small parks and schoolyards we have around here and they thermal very well, especially the low level heat coming off the grass!!...I ordered two more RTF ships, glass ones this time, to fly the beach and small slopes and cliffs along the shoreline, as well as our local RC field where there isn't any grass, so as not to scratch or ding up the beautiful carbon jobs, which are "Grass only" flyers!!....These things are a blast, we are having too much fun!!!....Thanks Neil
