Ali,
Thanks for the input. I had to reverse all 3 retract units which was no big deal. I am currently setting up the elevator dual servos which is proving to be fun! I am running two fr 8611a's so flutter will hopefull be no issues at all. Do you have a picture of your hawk's front tray layouts? I would love to see how you set yours up.

Thanks,
Buzz

Maiden!!

Took my Christmas present out today and did the maiden flight. I'm using a Weatronic RX with a gyro (on the aileron surface) and wow, what an awesome machine. Take off was with ease -almost by itself - with little elevator necessary. Flight characterisitcs were smooth but the landing was as good as it gets. Cut the throttle and the flap/elevator mix gave it a nice glide angle with a slight nose up attitude. The gyro kept it level despite a stiff cross breeze. It touched down as smooth as can be without ANY aileron or elevator imput. I love the Weatronics receiver. You get the best of all worlds with this unit. Thanks all, for the imput and helpful info. on this forum.
Here's some pics,
Steve

Savas with all the help Greg D has given you, why don't you ask him? Secondly the only way is to burn fuel and practice, as a pattern flyer you should be well aware of that.
