Looks like a molded composit model Kevin! Very nice. I too will fly a good looking model before I will stress over weight! Can't wait, should be the best looker yet. Oh and we know if they look like that they will fly even better!

Thanks all for the compliments!!!...Now you know why I was getting so frustrated getting the finish right as I knew I was capable of smoothly getting it done....Since I have family coming over this evening the white will have to wait until tomorow..This gives the primer a little more time to cure, making dry sanding easier as to not prematurely clog the sand paper..

I have a name for your baby! Mr. Clean...... Really looks crisp and almost too perfect to fly. But like an angel, I'm sure it will! We got some cooler weather too, but my lawn is so crispy I do not know if it will ever be the same.

Hi friends,

Just came back from field. Today is fatherīs day and I went with my son to play football, he ride his skate and I flew my planes.

First I flew my T27 Embrarer AFA Tucano, and then tried the Bae Hawk. Since thye first tests, I thought it didnīt have enoughf power to pull it to the air. I was using a turnigy nanotech 2s 370mah. I throw it, had not enough power to climb. I did it about 5 times and in the last it stalled with the nose and broke it

The ammo motor makes so noise, but could not keep the model in the air. It was in the correct cg and it flew about 10 meters and went loosing altitude, reaching the floor. Iīm sure if the motor had enoufg power I could keep it in the air, but I donīt know what happened...

The repair will be so easy to do: just glue the nose and change the bubble by another I already have here at home.

What must had happened ? Any ideas?

Maybe your battery has a dead cell which causes the power loss?

Cut a cheater hole in the belly right in front of the fan Luis(a half circle flat to the rear). Being a 10mm motor - it may not have the torque to pull the air though.

Yes! Exactly like that. It only needs to be ~25mm wide.

Sorry to hear about the maiden Luis...Doesn't look to be hurt too badly...

Instead of opening up a cheater hole I clipped the intakes back a little from their stock location...This opens up the intake as when stock you can see how the intakes are slightly pinched...It also slightly shortens the long draggy intakes some as well...Since I'm running a fan 5mm larger than what the plane was designed for and on 3S I'm thinking that I'm going to need to open up a slight cheater hole even with the mods that I've done...I have nothing against small cheater holes as ya can't see it in flight anyway on this plane being this small...

I'm after flight performance and if it takes a little extra air then so be it!!!

from the Polaris thread - a popular way to get more airflow is to cut a hole and use half a white plastic spoon as a small air scoop over the top of it.
no - it's not really a 'scale' option - on the 64mm T-45's their cheater holes are on the top of the turtle deck just behind the canopy. (Nitro will confirm this)
