Dumas Walnut P-6E Hawk


Hey Guys

Well after watching Martin Tiger Moth build. I new I just had to have one of these little Walnut planes. So I order the P-6E Hawk. I plan on using the same setup as Martin Tiger Moth, two Pico BB servos, GWS pico 4 channel RX, IPS DD motor, and either a 3x2 or 3x3 prop, and a 2s1p 250 etec pack. The wingarea on this kit is 80 sq in.

Here is the lastest picture. I don't own a Digtal camera so this was taken at Martins house yesterday. The wings are covered since this picture was taken, and I will be working on the stab and fin today. I hope to have this ready to fly by the end of the week. Now we just need to get some good weather here or find a indoor site that we can test fly them in.

Colin,
Nice Keep the pics coming. I have been wanting to do one of those for about a year now (so many projects). Are you going to do the snowy owl paint scheme?
I know that set up will fly it, but it will be fast. Have you thought about the gws lps b2c motor?

I forgot to weight the parts before I left Martins house last night. I will forsure will weigh everything before I install the gear for you. No I won't be doing the snow owl paint. It will be yellow solite wings, and olive green solite fuse. I have just finished Covering the stab and fin. I will try and get some more pics this weekend. But we will see if I can.

Here is what it will look like, well mostly.

Here is a update on my progress with the Hawk.

I have mounted the motor. I mounted this the same way Martin did with his Tiger Moth. Motor glued in with Black rubber CA, and cowling held on by a magnet. I also figured out how to mount the battery. The pack I am using is a 2s1p Etec 250, which fits just prefect under a plastic panel just behind the cowling. I have made the brace mounts for the battery.

Here is a pic on the Motor and cowling mount

Gonzo,
Ought to be a real nice plane. Have you been impressed with the quality of the Dumas kit? They seem to be a pretty quick build.
I really like your battery shelf.

Hey there

Got back working on the hawk today.

Well after spending a week banging my head against the work bench, trying to firgure out how to mount the struts without breaking them. Today I was able to over come that problem.

Here are a few pics of my progress.

First Pic. Using the wing templetes to glue in struts.
