    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    I was quoted $500 plus $50 shippping on the DerJet cockpit, that's why I went with the FEJ; it was $185 plus $40 to ship. Either way, still a lot of $ for something that if it could be found in Toys R Us it would be $20.

    $500 is nuts for a cockpit of this size. It's not THAT much better in detail than the one I got from SM.

    Finally got flights three four and five in yesterday as it was a warm day for this time of year but we had heavy fog and a low ceiling till the early afternoon. I just felt the need to post again how this plane flies so well. I guess that's why I see so many at the jet events. Do most Hawks fly this good? It just goes where you point it and seems to have no bad habits. We had nearly a breeze yesterday and landings were uneventful. Just a happy customer.

    Marty's Hawk looked *really good* on our last outing - which, with Marty at the sticks means that the darn thing must basically fly itself!

    Well I could probably come up with a few or maybe more than a few smart ***** comebacks for that statement but the truth is it does practically fly itself.

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    I am a newcomer to this thread and I want to get one of these comp arf hawks. I don't think I have ever come across an airplane with this many positive comments. You guys all factory reps? LOL!

    I am getting into jets - I have been flying GS warbirds and 3D helicopters for many years.

    All I can say is wow, what a sweet jet!

    Hey Marty
    I finally drew up the wing fence in AutoCad, from your photo it looks like yours is mounted at the intersection of the red with the white paint can you confirm.

    Hey Rich,
    Here's a pic. I think Dave mentions in the manual that it goes where the rectangular panel line is as you can see in the pic.

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    I just hope I get those suckers glued on straight. I would imagine the wing fences and fuselage strakes would be a destabilizing force if not aligned correctly...

    Funny you should say that because that's a picture of the side that went on straight the first time.. The other side was not so lucky and had to be snapped off and re-done.

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    Hey Marty Thanks for the photo!



    I really hate to have to put these on as they don't belong on the Goshawk, so I think I will have them laser cut out of clear polycarbonate, that way you'll never see them on a flyby

    I downloaded the manual and found the reference

    Additional Fences and covers
    Your Hawk kit includes various parts cut from a color coded glass sheet. The wing
    fences are an important feature on the Hawk. The glass fibre fences are fitted to the
    wing leading edge just outboard of the aileron/flap break line. If you project a line
    forward from the aileron inner edge there is a rectangular panel approximately 12mm
    wide and 60mm long marked 45mm back from the leading edge. The wing fence is
    mounted centrally on this panel using thick CA or epoxy.
    Another feature of the Hawk are the fuselage fins mounted either side of where the
    airbrake would be positioned. Two parallel lines are marked on the fuselage making
    installation easy. The fins are given additional support by cutting two slots to accept the
    location lugs. The fins should be firmly fixed using epoxy. The fins should be fixed with
    an angle of approx 115 degrees on the inside edge.

    Rich,
    I'm a little concerned. If you install wing fences that no one can see, will they work?
    Actually I like the idea. Anything to make it look more scale. Hope we can get some "loose" formation flying in in Kentucky. Are you going to FIF this year?

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    Do any of you use a gyro on the nose gear steering with the Hawk or does it steer well enough on takeoff and landing to not need one? I never heard of steering gyros until I got my Electra (it does not have one) and it is tricky to redirect once rolling along at high speed...

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    Here are some images of my new probe that Alan Cooke (Fireblade 5437) has made for my Hawk.

    The probe is detailed in every way and fits perfectly into the nose piece that Carf supplies with the kit.

    It is removable as it does screw into a fitting that Alan made to insert into the nose piece

    In the 3rd picture no sooner then I temporarily mounted the probe fitting on the nose of my Hawk it tried to mate with my UF

    Can't wait to get it back in the air.

    Steering is not a problem, I have a BLS352 on mine plenty of torque (had a spare one) only have enough travel that you really need. This plane tracks as good on the ground as it does in the air, just make sure you have a small amount of toe in on mains

    Stan, glad it arrived in one piece or should I say two!

    Not that I know of, so far electric stuff seems to need a little more development done from the stuff I have seen used.
    The over current used on Eflite retracts does not seem to transfer to larger sets well...

    Yes, stock gear is great. I have had two gear hang ups in hundreds of flights...both silly with the brake line catching the corner of the gear opening. Other than that, brilliant.

    If you have a VAT number register on CARF's site as such, with your VAT number and it will be charged less the German 19% VAT. Euro price plus shipping at 25 euros.
