I am on the verge of ordering a SM large Hawk and have a few questions for those who have been down this road already..I am planing on the Navy Trainer scheme.
I have read through many of the Hawk threads but thought I would ask the direct questions.
I usually buy the plane with the least done at the factory so that I can inspect/setup things the way I usually do etc...
How have most of you ordered your plane - flaps/ail hinges done? I plan to go with the BV upgrades and metal hinges for the main doors - so I figured I would order it without all of that stuff and do it myself.
BVM manual and trays helped.
I have a 160SX for this - enough? p140rx is fantastic in our 100 degree weather.
Lights - who is using what? I have used D4S for other projects but would like a bright nose light and simple install. Is D4S best? D4s lights look great but you have to mold your own wingtip lenses.
I have never used the Skymaster struts oil/air - do I need anything special to set these up? Tools are included with the kit.
Cockpit/pilots - from SM? Seems to be a good deal if bought with the plane? This setup looks great and fits.
Thanks in advance,
