Default SM 1/3.75 Hawk in T-45C Navy Centennial Scheme

I was fortunate enough to receive one of the first SM 1/3.75 Hawk kits to come over from Anton. I chose the TW-2 NAS Kingsville Centennial of Naval Flight T-45C scheme. I'll be assembling it over the next couple of months while monitoring the build thread by Flightwerkz.

Undecided on turbine as of now. JR 8711HV's on main flight controls.

I'll be adding some T-45 scale details, though it will not be 100% perfect, e.g. I do not plan to modify the nose gear to tandem wheel at this time. I do plan to add the H tailplanes and (non-functional) speed brakes on each side of the rear fuse as well as the tail hook.

This will not be a full build thread, but I will post pics along the way so let me know if there is something in particular that you would like to see photos or a video of.

Photos of the subject aircraft are below and initial photos of the model after unboxing will follow.

"Nothing". Two 2S Lipo's direct into AR12120 powersafe Rx direct to HV servos. Each servo plugged into its own channel.

Sounds nice & simple. I didn't realize you could do that. This is my 1st plane I thought required a power distribution system, so I purchased a powerbox to stick into my Kingcat & get familiar with it. I'm going to research your setup.
thanks, Jay

I have flown this setup in everything from Kingcats to 1/6 scale F-16's to 40% 3D aerobatic planes with no issues. I'm sure many will disagree (and that's OK ... to each their own) and I am not a technology averse person, but I prefer this simple setup. This jet will be much less abusive on the system than a 3D aerobatic plane, in my opinion.

I have always wondered where there isn't an official t-45 from skymaster, they have the Mk66, hawk 100 but no t-45, Seems like with minimal modifications they could have it. from what I see the only things that are different is the t-45 has tandem front nose gar and they air brakes come out from the side; also the tail hook.

I'm hoping that they will come out with a tandem nose wheel setup so I can convert mine down the road. Since doors are already done, etc I'm just going to leave it like it is for now. Most of the other items I'll add, except airbrakes on side will be non-functional.

On another one of the large hawk threads Anton said he'd be doing the T-45. He said what other projects were 1st, but I don't remember.

One would think as popular as the T 45 is Skymaster could at least read design the wing and horizontal tale to be correct and add the leading-edge slats the tandem nose gear would be nice too i'm sure if they modeled the scale landing gear it would be spectacular

Before I switched to JR DMSS I used the JR Power Safe Rx's in all my jets along with a JR 12X Tx.all DSMX. The big box is really a 30 AMP power bus using 2 batteries for power. I always used real A123s for easy recharging in the jet. The real receivers are the satellites. I always used 4 with a data logger. I watched the numbers and moved the satellites to get the best reception and oriented the antennas in different directions. (the numbers change every flight based on location, number of airplanes being flown and other factors but if one satellite consistently shows hi numbers it needs to be moved) It is a very simple system and I never had a problem.

Wow That is very nice. I love the gear that they came up with. It is a lot easier to build than mine was.

Warblood,

Jamie can reply but it appears to be like my Skygate. A single bolt pulls the wing against the fuse. I see a small hole on the wing where mine is. You install the bolt in the wheel well area on the fuse.

Think I'm going to wait for the jetcat P220, but may look into 300 size turbine once the flight reports start rolling in. I'll do a Powerbox srs also, & leaning towards futaba servos & jettronic valves. Great idea with the carf gauge, I'll do that too if there's one on the 100.
