Hacker Model Hot Wing 1000.....

Why doesn't this wing get a lot of love ? Is it not good ? I like the idea of a 1 piece wing, not having to glue two wing halves together.

You guys don't think this could better than the 900mm Popwing ?

Btw, for those who own this wing, what kind of electronics are you running and how do you like it ? How does it compare to a Popwing ? Can't seem to find to much info on this bird so any feedback would be great. Thanks in advance.

I have the Hacker Hot Wing 1000 and the Hot Wing EVO 1000. I maidened the Hot Wing 1000
today in 10mph+ winds and it flew fine. A bit of yaw in the cross wind leg but do able.

I have flown the EVO several times. It is a dream to fly, also my first wing.

I searched for info and found nothing.

I have a Firepower 250, 2300kv, 12a esc. 8X6 GWS prop, two 2s 800 batteries. 9g Powerup
servos on the Hot Wing 1000. I launch at about 30% throttle. The power is insane. Five minute
flight leaves the batteries at about 8v each.

The EVO has a Emax CF2806 1600KV, 12a esc, 8X5 wood Zinger prop. 9g Powerup serovs.
Two 3s 500 batteries. Power is off the scale.

EVO maiden and my first ever wing flight

Thanks for the reply. What's the difference between the "regular" Hot wing 1000 and the Evo ?

The EVO has six verticals. And the graphics.

The Hacker wings are 2 piece and have to be glued together. For details, check the manuals available on the Tower site.
