Kevin,

Here's a suggestion...go with the Nato Flying Training Center Hawk Colors....but then I'm biased being a Canuck. Leading edge models have just come out with details on this colo(u)r scheme.

Can't wait for you to get the ESC replaced and see some video of your Hawk...as you know I have this same motor/fan/fuel combo.

I am not a fan of black models, especially those with sheeted foam core wings. they dont look too good after extended periods in the sun...plus i am definitely too lazy to paint it

No one wants that controller back more than me. That reminds me, i need to call CC i havnt even heard if they received it yet.

just picked up some more fuel from Jim yesterday.

I should be back in business soon...after the holiday weekend. I paid the upcharge for the HV140. A little more headroom will be nice...who knows what will be in this fan after the scorpion (not that i am planning anything yet).

Nice Kevin, maybe when I'm up your way I can pick one up?...I assume you mean the fan setup? I dont make it, Fred at Dyn-e-max makes them.

that thing slowed up NICE for landing...it slows up better than i thought it would. i got a little impatient and tried to set it down in the video. usually i hold it off longer and it lands better....having said that it had a bit of a nasty snap during previous stall testing, so it cant go too slow.


how much, and where can i buy?....i dont beleive this version is made anymore, but there are some chinese knockoff arfs floating around on ebay... success stories vary.

I can't get enough of the sound of that thing... very nice kevin
I still really want to try one in my TJ A-4... but always scared to try soemthing new..
how many watts and amps are you getting

I should just try it .. if it doesn't work out I can save it for a different project

I've also thought about going with freds beast and getting a set of 6s 35c 6500mah hyperion G3's

I think that could be a pretty rocking setup

great job Kevin ...I've got to do something to loose the screaming DS-94

Ron
