    Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    Guys

    Early Xmas this morning, I've unpacked both a Comp ARF Corsair and the new Hawk kit

    The Hawk is a first production item sent ahead so I can help with the building notes. I'll keep everyone posted and do a build thread as I go. (won't start for a few days as I've got another Hawk on the board to finish-Eflite EDF!!)

    So far I think they have another winner!

    What gear is "aproved"?

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    Dave,

    Meant to ask, do we include the 3 flap linkage covers and the cover for the aileron linkages?

    Toying with the idea of one of these and fancy scaling it up as much as poss to match my Skygate Hawk.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Guys

    Turbines in the P120-160 class are perfect.

    You are free to use any gear as normal, but the Comp ARF set up will just fit in. Quality of gear will be very high-German made.
    The kit is going to be offered with a Sports Scale gear to start with-photos soon.
    Simon...you are right...in Black!

    Not intending to do a Corsair build thread, sorry.

    So far I can't tell you what the final package will include...when I know I'll let everyone know. For sure the basics will allow a nice scale model, but things like the live Flap Hinging are meant to be Sport Scale...It's a perfect Scale Flash/Lightning follow-on model.

    No, it's an Air Trade Raven. But I do have an AW Spinner we bought to try that does not match this aeroplane well enough.

    geh3

    Mine will be flying soon, any questions on the build send me an email at motrot@aol.com.
    There are a couple of later updates we have made that are easily done to these early kits. If you have an email address I can shoot you a couple of shots to help you with things like the elevator set up.
    Which landing gear are you going with?

    Regards

    Tailor Made Decals have done it again! I had through two MDC canopy decal kits for my Hawk. This gives the finishing touch to the large canopy

    The canopy decals is a "must" on the large canopy. Nice that someone makes them for us. We want more pictures in you build thread !
    Not bad to have tree? different landing gears to choose from as Digitech also released his version for this Hawk. But will we ever see the scale version?

    for what i know it will be same gear as introduced by Graupner some time ago.
    so as far i can remember scale gear is about 1800 euro,s..
    while sport gears start at far lower then that..
    In God we trust , the rest we Track \"digitech multirotors\"

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    Maybe an answer would be to replicate what Skygate do on the big Hawk i.e. just use a plain old oleo and the fit a scale molded cover around the oleo?

    Looks OK on mine....

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    The scale gear will be introduced-just smaller version of the SkyGate set up, price expected around 2000 euro, but in my mind worth every cent!-Beautiful work.

    I hope Digitec did their home work and the gear fits! The scale gear is open when the load is off, so longer, if you make the gear the "landed" length normally, it won't fit in the wing.

    Regards

    RE: Comp ARF BAE Hawk build thread

    i hope i did my homework then ;-)

    to stay on topic

    i could use :

    build manual (not in box)
    i emaoled but no answers..
    CG
    Elevator update you made?
    Rudder : where to cut , to put inside the Rudder?
    anything else that is interesting exept the Landing gear , that was least of the problems.

    also i have not seen a fuel tank , but funny part is that graupner has the fuel tank in stock for their hawk
    so i ordered that one instead...
    for the the rest it is a nice model , very light against a FeiBao i must admit.
    .
    impressive wing and elevator..
    In God we trust , the rest we Track \"digitech multirotors\"
