Thermal Hobie Hawk, meet SLOPE Hobie hawk...
Here is one of my winter projects...
The larger hawk is a "SuperHawk" - a large version of the Hobie Hawk - 11 inch longer fuse, larger rudder and a 10 foot wingspan with SD-7037 airfoil. This is my THERMAL flyer.
Now meet a SLOPE Hawk.
It has a stock Hobie Hawk fuse' and tail feathers, but the wings are scaled down in length (not just shortened) to 6 feet instead of the stock 8 feet. It also has an RG-15 airfoil. Empty weight as you see it so far is 28 oz.
Actually all I have to do is cover the wings and install the radio so it should fly soon! I only wish there were more "crunchie friendly" slopes around my neck of the woods!
Anyway, just another winter project...
Yes, the Hawk tawk still goes on.
I just posted a note on Torrey Pines Gulls asking them for help/input as to whether there could be a Hobie Hawk 30 year anniversary down that way during one of their RES events... We'll see.
The little 6 footer I am actually possibly going to try and make a wingeron ship. I have a fiberglass fuse I could use (easier to work with than the stock plastic polyethylene nose). The 10 foot SuperHawk flys so well! I am also building another one of those... only with spoilers!
Anyway, glad to hear you are still out there!
