Rob I mounted mine on a ply tray ... the cooling holes opening would have have to be drilled both inside and outside. I get some airflow from the front gear opening.

On my big F-86 I mounted a graphics card fan (3.5v) on top of the same esc. Works very well, except new I can't remember where I got that tiny neat graphics card fan

Herb - What is the HC Esc you're referring to? Thanks for the fancalc link I am slowing figuring it out - very cool. Only wish it had the Changesun fan and a few more motors.
I used the Het 9305V2 for 700 series motors. I'm actually quite impressed with this fan. The feedback I got at the field was very positive due to the sound coming from the Super Sniper.

I used the TURNIGY K-Force 70A-HV OPTO Brushless ESC. It works very well.

LOOKS real nice and scale. The elevators look small, you guys think it has enough surface area?

Regarding the wing fences:
I am not an Hawk expert but IMHO the version we got from Nitro is a arcraft carrier version.... it will not have big and small wing fences because it has the movable leading edge,
If we want to avoid wing dropping tendencies we should add the vortex generators with a proper 10 deg. angles as marine version has them....
Just my two pennies....

Freewing Retracts / Struts


OK, I received my $63.00 electric Freewing retracts / struts. As I posted earlier, the struts are going to be way too long and will have to be cut down.

Today I cut one of the struts down. I used a dremel w/ a heavy cut-off wheel. I then re-drilled the 4mm hole in the top. I will use the original spring retaining screw to now also work as a set screw. I then drilled & tapped the other side so there are two set screws again.

The spring is alot stronger than I was expecting. I thought in the pics they looked a little flimsy. But, it takes about 5-6lbs of pressure just to make the strut deflect. At 7+ lbs there is still room left to move. Notice how the wheels are squishing!!

The downside I see is that the body of the retract will not allow it to fit perfectly flush. There is about 1/8th of an inch of rib underneath that is stopping in from sitting flush. Debating about whether or not to sand it down....

Chalmrast - nice work they look great and affordable. Do they fit within the molded retract well when cut down? Looks like the trailing link geometry makes it a bit tricky.

No, it won't fit in that. I'll have to figure out what I'm going to do with that later... I have some ideas though
