On the subject of Tomahawk models, anyone heard anything further about the 1/3.5 scale F-86? This L-39 is seriously looking the goods.

Regards,

Gregory

Ok, Ok. So the car is small but that does not take away from the fact that this is one big albatross.
There will be no sleeping on my front tonight
My order went in about 12 weeks ago, and I hope to be flying mine at Jet power this year. Thomas is offering some special offer for those ordering before or at Jet Power. Target weight is low ( around 20 Kg is possible) So well within the American 55 lbs rule. I expect it will be the same super level of scale detail as the big hawk. Loving the way the fuselage splits for transit.

Super light construction. The lightest, strongest, composite available. You have to see it in person. some kind of foam, glass composite. Even the spars are this foam composite.
I believe The company that does the layups builds gliders.

20K is 44.2 lbs. That leaves only 10.8 lbs for fuel, turbine, electronics, gear etc. I would be curious to see the actual numbers.

Won't this suffer from the same problems the big Hawks have, too light for the size, fly a little like a kite?

Andy,
I believe they come in 20 kg dry, that's everything except fuel.

So is this larger than the new skygate L39?  Are these guys always going to make the same plane only different sizes?

It looks a little different to the Skygate L39. Very different with the way it splits and hatches etc where as the hawk is just a bigger version of the sky gate example. Found the dates for Jet Power.
