Check out Hyperion, not only are they smaller but the battery leads come out of the ends rather than the side of the pack. Big plus when fitting into pylons, hotliners.

Way Cool

Really cool molded F5B. In the States it goes by HAWK. It has a do it all cousin named the Falcon-E http://www.icare-rc.com/falcon-e.htm
Almost a ION but with x tail, moulded, and mh-32. Seems like a true do it all bird.

Cant wait to see more of your build!

Is this the maker of the Sprinter found at www.espritmodel.com?

If so, I don't think this is the same as a Hawk.

The Sprinter is made by Reichard, and you can find their different models here:

Ok, good. I had a Sprinter, it was cheap quality. Just making sure it wasn't a Reichard.

I will be installing the servos soon. The manual suggests covering the servos with heatshrink and epoxy them right in. Can anyone with experience please tell me if this would be the best way to do it?

Yep, I think it's the only way to do it. Mix 30 minute epoxy with micro balloons or milled fiberglass.

Thanks Johnny! I was thinking of mixing the epoxy with talcum powder instead of micro balloons...

I tried to use the eCalc on this but I don't know all the necessary data to put into it. The manual suggests a larger prop: RFM 15*16, and I suppose you will have to use a large ESC!
You can download the manual here: http://www.kontronik.com/images/stor...ng_kirafai.pdf

The ECO is coming together bit by bit. Here are some photos:


If you are experienced in building hotliners and see something that doesn't seem right, please let me know. This is my first build of this kind...

Thanks!
