Description

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 model is supplied with a Ytong 1S 380 mAh LiPo battery if we can legally ship this. We can send LiPos to the UK, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain mainlands only, no islands. To other destinations we will include one of our 150 mAh NiMH batteries.

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.

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

Two Hawk SC RTF's!!

Ordered two carbon Hawk RTF ships....Got here to the USA in under a week and boxed nice...no 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
