I agree with you using 6 S giving you plenty of power and speed . ...
Neu Motors , ARC , Mega and also the new HET motors cope quite well with this performance .
Herb, do you think that the nice little aluminum struts you might be using can stand up to the weight of this Hawk ...
Rolf, very nice pictures of your T-45, thanks for sharing !
I agree lighter is better with this airframe. The comparison with the Schuebeler Hawk (same size & weight range) is very relevant.
Yes those little aluminum HK struts look a bit flimsy for a 7lbs plane ... I think will start out with nice Springair steel struts with a good sized coil
