My Red Tailed Hawk


I been playing with my new CNC machine and decided to design a "bird" type plane. They look pretty cool so why not.

So, here is what I have come up with. 1.9lbs EPP foam, 46" span, V tail controls, and hollow airfoil with a CF spar. Power is an AXI 2208-34, 3S 1320 lipo, 8x4.5 folding prop (in the video) and HS50 servos.

Laine.





before paint:

After I painted it:
Radio Controlled EPP Red Tailed Hawk (2 min 20 sec)

Thanks Brian. I could paint it up like that I guess, time will tell what I do for paint. The wife wanted me to make the 101st Airborne Div. Screaming Eagle (she calls it the puking chicken), but I decided to make it more "hawkish".

It will be at SEFF for sure. I might be using the Hawk for the full contact combat!

The big SRT/10 will be there. Hopefully I'll have it ready to fly again too. Gotta get the landing gear fixed up.

Nice looking red tail Laine. I've always wanted something like this and it would fit in well here in PA, lots of red tails. This guy took a squirrel out of my front yard last fall. Kinda scary 'cause my do isn't much bigger than a squirrel.

I'll keep an eye out for when these go into production...

Yup yup, all mine Dirt. So far I have been using Cad Works. Its been more than sufficient so far. Eventually I'll step up to a better program if I need it.
