Default ?

Do you have any info. on it? The Morris site has little to no info. about this plane..

Is it a tractor or pusher? What size engine (40-46)?

Looks pretty sweet, but need more pics..

Default TOMHALK

It's a prop-jet...like the "Patriot"....

(not real cheap...must be laser-cut)

$169.95
MOR550


"Jet-like looks and performance in a sport
package" best describes the Morris Hobbies
TomHawk. Based on the Navyıs new jet trainer,
the McDonnell Douglas T-45A Goshawk, the
TomHawk is designed to fill the large void
between trainer types and high-performance
ducted fan or jet models.


The price tag and building techniques are more akin to an
average .40-sized sport model, while the airborne speed and
performance will provide modelers the challenge and excitement
of much more expensive and complex models.

Wing Span: 54"
Wing Area: 600 sq."
Length: 60"
Weight: 6.5-8 lbs
Engine: .40-.53
Radio: 4 or 5 channel

Default Mig-29

I've got one "in the Pile"... that's gonna be a winter project. ( Rossi .61 ) What a cool plane...comes with a great manual...plus a CD-Rom that follows the manual, pic for pic.

You can zoom in on the CD and see exsactly how each piece fits....and that's a good thing....because ther's 33 sheets of lazer cut parts....

I think it was like $129....great deal, if you like to build...

Wanna' Haul ?....Put a Jett .90 in one....and hang onto your shorts....Dave...

Default How fast ???

Speed ?...with the Rossi .61, I would look for 125-145. With a jett .90, or 1.00...I would look for 140-160...I mean...who knows.
I fly at almost 3000 ft. Alt.

Yes the intakes on mine will be "lessoned", and tapered as long and as narrow as can be....(black paint is our friend on this one)

Speed cost's money....how fast do you wanna' go ?
