Default Hacker Cosmic Wind

Hello all,

I just picked up a Hacker Cosmic Wind 74.75" ARF, does anyone have any experience with one of these?

Hi Adriano,

I paid $600.00 for the Kit. It was advertised as an ARF, but it is far from that. The fuselage is a white gel coated glass/foam laminant construction and is pretty fair but is not painted. The stab, vertical fin, are not airfoiled, but flat, open structure and VERY, VERY heavy. The wings are built up, open structure also, and VERY, VERY, heavy. The wing tips are ABS plastic. as is the fairing around the vertical fin and stab. The scale spinner (5.5") came without a backplate. Needless to say, it will take some work, but it will be a beauty when she's done.

Hi Todd, I have had my eye on the Hacker 'Lil Toni' for some time now.... interesting comments you have, by chance would you be able to post some pics of your Cosmic Wind? I would really like to seeup close the component quality of the hacker kit! I was considering the ARC version myself and finishing in a scale scheme.... flat fin and stab sounds a bit dissapointing, hows the undercarrage/wheels etc? whats the story with no spinner backplate??? what if any other kit components do you feel are not up to expectation? how are the instructions? sorry about all the questions as you are the first Iam aware of who has a kit

Cheers- Marty

Hi Marty,

I'll be glad to post some pics. I'll try to get this done in a day or two. Also I'll try and give you some component weights. Luckily I have a brother who is a machinest that's going to make me a backplate for the spinner!

Hey Marty,

The glass work on the fuse is pretty good really. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it an 8. The overall kit is very complete (except for the spinner backplate[>:]). If someone wanted to use all the components of the kit, it would go together pretty fast I think.

I'm pretty wrapped up in Pattern flying, so I don't know when I'll start on it. [] I'll be sure to post some more pics whenever that time comes...

Thanks,

Todd S

Kevin,

I sold this kit to a friend of mine. He has been building on it and could have it ready to fly later this season. I don't know if this kit is available anymore. I bought it here on RC Universe from an individual.
