i got a 2 min. flight in tonight with the hawk sky with the new BP2212-6 and suppo SP-30a ESC, the ESC was warm after the flight but another hobbyist said their notorious for that and he has a few of them that get warm but no problems. I was hopping for more speed from the motor but i did have the prop facing the wrong way, so hopefully next time it will be faster. the motor held excellent and the wood piece worked good.

got the hawk sky all set up and ready to go. I've checked everything twice and rechecked again just in case and everything is good to go. I would do the maiden today but it is too windy here in east tennessee so I am going to work on my edge 540 foamy and hopefully get everything glued together. hope everyone has a good day.

i finally got my motor on the hawk sky. i just drilled new holes, so i could screw the x mount to the plastic pod. I lost the the plastic holder that went down into the body of the fuselage. I originally got some wood pieces to mount the x mount then mount the hole thing to the pod with glue and some screws but since i didn't use the wood pieces for that u cut a hole out of the wood piece then screwed the motor pod into that then I'm gonna put screws into that and glue it to be extra secure and hopefully i can maiden it tomorrow. will post some picks later

i got all my stuff to upgrade my hawk sky. I got a bp 2212-6 brushless motor and a 30a/3a bec suppo esc. i have everything soldered and now trying to get the motor mounted to the stock pod that came with the hawk sky. after i programed the esc i ran the motor for a couple of sec. the 2212-6 from BP hobbies has alot of power, hopefully i can get 60mph with this set
