I am more than happy with how it flys now! Night and day difference from the stock underpowered brushed setup. I sure can't wait to fly it again. I think this is going to be one of those always take with me to the flying field type of planes.

Here's what I used:

Don's Wicked Jr. park pusher (2200kv)
6x4 prop (produced 175 watts at only 15 amps during static tests)
no name 25amp esc
Turnigy 3cell 2200mah 30c lipo.
Cut ailerons into the wings and installed a used set of servos I had from a crashed EDF jet.
Extended the elevator and rudder control surfaces with scrap depron.
Stock elevator and rudder servos.
Hobbyking R410 OrangeRX 4 channel receiver


Future plans:

Maybe flaperons if I can figure out the mixing on my DX7
I might try out an rctimer 2212-06 2200kv motor that I ordered. Not sure if there will be a difference since the kv is the same.
Fly it until the wings fall off. Rebuild and fly some more!


Yea baby she looks and sounds GREAT

Just noticed HeadsUp has the Jr Hawk back in stock.
This is identical to the Wild Hawk except for the colors.

I have a Jr Hawk and I think the yellow is easier to see.

Hey and one of my favorite hobby stores is selling it. They must have just started. Need to see if they have the ARF version as well.

HU sold them when they first took on the GWS line.
They stopped carrying them when their price increased.
I'm glad to see they have them back.
