Build Log
M-5 Sparrowhawk

After PT-19, my next move is the Sparrowhawk. Setup will be similar, 2s with AR6400L, 2 aileron servo AS2000, 6-7A ESC and 180mAh battery. The wing span also similar to my PT-19, around 20". Here are some of the photo taken from my build log.

Wing rips and the wing construction:

Thanks Pete, this plane was on my wish-list for over a year. But due to lack of confident I have to wait and test build the PT-19 first before decided to start with this.

Continue with will construction, I decided to put 2 aileron servo under the wing





Next:





After consulted few build log, I decided to have the battery hatch like this, hold with 2 magnets:

Hi memo skull, I will use AP-05 with GWS 5030 prop. Think I'm in love with 5030

Hi buratino!

It looks charming so far!
Now it's my turn to envy traditional-balsa-builders!
Looking forward to watch the progression...

:-)

Haha, it's tradition that we envy each other

Small progress with rudder and elevator:



Finishing with the most stressful and also most delightful task - covering:





Push rod for rudder and elevator using 0.6mm carbon



Motor installed, in the end I am using 6A Plus ESC and AP-05 3000kv



Landing gear and support. After a trial on PT-19 I found out that the landing gear can not handle my landing skill so decided to have more support for it.



Wheelpant made from 1/32 soft balsa



And finally RTF, AUW with 180mAh is 65g which is lesser than my target (around 70g).
