Wattage Hawk for first plane.


Sorry for all of the questions lately.

Anyway, I am thinking about using a stock wattage hawk for a first plane. What do you guys think?

Sky scooter it is if people say no to this too.

I wouldnt recommend it for a first plane. I have one and find it quite difficult to fly even with the stock 380 motor and 6 cell pack. I am getting a Multiplex Pico Cub to practise with, but I hear the Teddy, Wingo, Sky Scooter are good too. I will get back to the Hawk when I am a bit more competent with the PC.

The Hawk is a great little flier but it is too fast for a first airplane - the Sky Scooter is a much better choice.

Ditto. All good advice. I have one which is still too fast for me.

I need to practice with my Pico Cub alittle more first.

The options suggested with push props are always good for first planes.
