Alibongo , I don't know anything about the Hawk Sky , but the SUPER EASY is meant to be a kind of cheap , easy to make disposable trainer - it's certainly not much to look at . Somebody even said it looks like the head of Phineas ( of Phineas and Ferb ) ! Once it's properly trimmed it is very stable and will fly hands off . I have even flown mine with just throttle and the rudder TRIM button .
Here are a few happy builders :

And here is a total beginner who made one . The video shows his very first flight where he over steers quite a bit , and then more flights .
You should make one and see for yourself !
