    Well its time again for a new build thread. If you are like me I love to watch Jets move from start to finish. This thread is unique in that there is history behind this brand of Hawk. I purchase the FEJ Hawk 2.66m in the Yellow/Black Color. This first post will provide a list of items that I will be installing in the Hawk. As this build thread begins I ask that please keep this one clean and helpful for not just for me but for others that may end up purchasing this size or similar. As always My goal is to have other help me identify items that I could do better or different. So enough said here is a list of items that will be used in the Hawk:

    As we wait patently until I get back to start the build. It looks like I will be going with a JC Rhino. Also I had made a jig to get exact measurements for the Xicoy CG Machine. This will be the first thing I do so that for those that get this model and size will have those numbers if wanted. Stay toned for the start.

    Joe,

    Nice to see that you are doing a build on the FEJ Hawk and doing it in the yellow and black, which I believe is a very cool scheme. Would it be possible to get some detailed photos of the insides (fuse, wings, etc) showing the construction on how its all put together. I would like to see this since I'm also thinking of a FEJ. Looking forward to following your build.

    yes the first set of photos will be of the overall construction and layup. So if there are pictures that I didn't get close up on please let me know.

    Thanks and yes its neutral to me as I have never owned a FEJ and I know that others have had not so good luck with them in any shape or form. Just know when I get back home to start the build I will be adding a lot of pictures as i build it.

    This is great, I love build threads also.


    I will say as I own several FEJ jests, Its worth the effort to cut a Square 1in from the root, about 1in wider than the rod that goes into the elevator. This is so you can verifier and strengthen the attachment point. Once you add some hysal to this critical part, then take balsa, and make tabs on all 4 sides, so the part you cut out will lay perfectly level, then Hysal it back in, if you use the super thin diamond cut off wheel from lows it will be a very small seem around the repair area.


    Post pics Im excited.
