My E version of the Houston Hawk. Apologies to Jack Womack for adding a pod and boom with a "mustache" to his beautiful Houston Hawk wing design. I have built several Houston Hawks and they are excellent pure sailplanes. The only changes I made to the wing was to eliminate the spoilers and add flaps.
