I have had my eye on this plane for a while, but didn't really want to build the kit, now with the ARF coming out I may just have to get it.

How does the Tomhawk compare with the GP Patriot?

Default Looks!

The Patriot is a sleeker design, but in the looks department, I think the Tomhawk wins hands down. The Tomhawk has 600 sq inches of wing and the Patriot 524. It appears from the pics on Morris Hobbies website the Tomhawk ARF has a open bay wing but the kit has a solid sheeted wing. The Tomhawk has a very realistic shallow rotation on takeoff and looks super in the air. The long nose really looks good in the air. I am fixing to kit bash a Tomhawk into a T-38!

The Tomhawk I have flown was not as fast as my Patriot. The Tomhawk had a .60 in it and the Patriot a Rossi .45. The Tomhawk is a little bigger and better looking IMHO. The Patriot wing is a little thinner and the plane has a little less frontal area (especially if you leave off faux intakes). I think I would try to put a .90 on another Tomhawk as it will fit in there.

Well the ARFs were a little late into Morris, but they've got them in stock now (April 2003). You guys think a Rossi 45 will be enough? The specs say that this is going to be a big bird (at 60 inches long, it's going to be longer than my 120 sized Extra)... Or should I just stick a 60 up front?
