    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    Well guys....I purchased a couple of radial engines so I will be going gas on this one....

    I want to have my ZDZ40 (rear carb,axhuast) to have flexable tubing out the back
    and make a Gas tank, the gas tank will house the muffler....I will see how this
    works out....I like quite 2-strokes but we will see.....
    Not sure when I will start mine....

    I cant imagine why you would want to do this, can you explain why you want to make the exhaust and gas tank together?

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    I think you may have misinterpreted what I meant...

    THe real flying p-6e hawk had a gas tank that was located under the bottom wing.
    I wanted to have a quite gas engine on this plane....
    I thought about making a FALSE gastank, that looks like the real thing
    but have it house the cannester, or homemade muffler....

    Not sure if it is worth the trouble...
    Either way, I like the idea of a False,scale looking gas tank under the wing...

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    LOL, That makes sense. They do look good with the gas tank. I thougnt of making one myself. As a matter of fact I just realized, if I could find a camera small enough, maybe that would be a good place to put a video camera, in a gas tank shaped pod. TheG-38 with a bennett muffler sounds just right for this plane, not too loud, but not too quiet either.

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    wanted to share some pictures. My son and I were invited to fly at MacDill AFB during the 2010 Airfest. Our friend Brian took some awesome pictures of our hawk and Sean flying it. It was very early morning, the sun was just coming up. He did a great job in front of 40,000 people, talk about a little pressure.... We had a video camera on it but it didnt isolate the vibration well but he posted it on youtube anyway.

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    I would like to do some spar seams and make it look like material covering....

    After some time flying it, I will strip it and redo some things to make it look very
    scale....when I get it done, or even start on it,,, I will fly it, until
    it looks like it needs something done, then I will do it, not before though....
    Too much work...expecially when you have too many models the way it is, and you
    have made all the ARF's into a minor Build, instead of assembly>...[]

    I would like to for once, just stick a ARF together and fly it...

    looks really sharp, thanks for posting those. I am considering the DLE-30 as well. Saw one and its smaller than I thought and I think it could stay concealed under cowl as well

    I would LOVE to get the engine you have but I dont know who in the US offers it?

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    Well guys...
    I have thought about it again...
    Wanted a inline twin Saito 200TI
    would like a enya 240 v-twin but aint gona happen...

    Even though Advantage hobby had a killer deal on there saito's..
    ( even more than what they have now off)
    I picked up a saito FG-36 for a great price and will placing it in this plane...

    IT is a 36cc gas engine...NOT a BIG 2.20 single 50cc power monster....
    Weighs the same as the Zenoah 38 and it balances with that engine.
    Good to go....

    I will make sure I PRE-lube things up (valves ect) and
    I am confident it will give me many years of cheap, Slime free use...

    I am sure that there will be some that say
    "ohh my" that is too big of engine, and your plane will fall apart..."

    IT uses a comperable 2-stroke cc size prop....so no problem

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    By the way....
    I think people will start to realize that the "CHEAP" scale ARf's are a thing of the past....
    I picked up the last stagerwing from tower at a great price....

    These planes were a bargin...and no one got it....
    I am very happy I didn't care what my wife said, I went and got these planes anyway...
    Would be kicking myself if I didn't...

    Have you seen what the scale planes are going for at AEROWORKS?? 900$ for a cub, and Cesna???

    I feel very fortionate to have this plane...

    cheers...

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    I am STRONGLY considering getting one of these.  Would a Saito 100 handle it ok?  I really like the looks of it and have heard it flies really well.  Sorry to see it was discontinued, but I know there are some floating around.

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    I fly mine with an OS 1.20 and it's plenty of power. I'm convinced a good .91 four stroke would fly it well. Your Saito 1.00 should be sufficient. Personally I'd prefer a bit more power in reserve but it's not a requirement.
    ...and then the unthinkable happened!

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    In my opinion, a G-38 is a perfect engine for this plane, cheap, perfect weight with the magneto, and plenty of power without being grossly overpowered, you can even use the supplied stock muffler! Oh, and a gas engine wont get oil everywhere and take a toll on the beautiful covering like a glow fuel engine would.

    RE: P-6E Curtis hawk (build thread)

    Yeah the slime is always a issue, but I can take the slime for nice pleasent tone...VRs
    the Harsh chainsaw noise....

    I have the best of both worlds...Mine has found it's way with a Saito 36cc gas in it...
    The higher oil content required for this engine will spit some but nothing the amounts the glow will...

    Mine will have a 3 blade solo prop on it when done....
    Interesting how large 3-blade props look a 15-16 inch 3-blade looks good, let alone a 18inch...

    I want to spray up this plane and add rib seems ect...
    I looks as though this plane (real one) has fusulage fabric seams....Something that would
    really add some scale touches to this bird....



    I may add these things and make a fiberglss mold of it..

    Well DL or DLE... what ever there calling it now...
    THe reason TBM had them cheap was they were changing the carb setup...
    They will have a REAR induction on it...even better of installs like this one..

    I personally, if wanted a 30cc I would spend 150$ more and get the Syssa aircraft sap180.

    Much better engine.
    If I didn't have a lightend 40cc I would get his..

    saito 36gas going in this one.
    I just can't stand the sound of gas engines with a muffler...
    Just plain horrible sounding.. Don't get me wrong, I have my share of them...

    Just run a long thin wire through the tube. You will see where it pokes out the covering - but use 2.4.

    Capt G, I tried that with some solder, because I already have everything installed. It hits something solid. I guess I could drill a small hole in the firewall and feed some wire through.

    Thanks

    Hey Guys,

    I just checked Tower and they list the Hawk as being available late November. It looks like they might be bringing this one back. It's listed as $479.99 though.
