Itís been out for a bit now but canít find much info about it. Anybody flying one or have an insight?
Based on T1s other successful models this one should be a winner too???

Its a great aircraft! Super light wing loading. I flew the prototype a bunch and it was a joy to fly.

Been flying mine for about a year. It flies great. And a great presence both on the ground and in the air.

I am flying mine with a K140. I wouldn't go any smaller on power.

Great to hear, I put over 400 flights on my CARF Hawk and loved it, Iíve become a scale snob though.
I like the Skymaster but am conscious of the weight it bears. The T1 seems to have the best combo of light weight and scale details.
Alfa do you happen to have any pics or videos of yours?
How many flights would you say youíve put on it?

Joseph,

Probably have 50 or so flights on her. We were shutdown for awhile due to a drought and then the field was closed due to the virus - so haven't flown it in a few months. Hoping to get it back in the air this coming weekend.

The airframe is very light for what it is. Supposedly much lighter than the Skymaster Hawk which is the same size. She flies light also - feels the same in the air and landing as my regular T-1 sport jet.

Jim thank you for the info. I agree with your assessment of comparing it to the T1 sport Jet.
I flew my buddies T1 after flying my carf hawk and remember saying they felt very similar. The carf hawk and T1 sport jet are pretty much identical in size. My hawk weighed 28 pounds dry and my buddies was around 25 pounds.

Chris, thank you for the detailed pictures beautiful jet. construction defiantly appears to be of very high quality.
I will be contacting Dirk for ordering.
