eHawkEye Weekender ground school



I present my eHawkEye Weekender (the RC version of the HawkEye - Free Flight Glider).
I bought the plane while attending our son's graduation in California.
The box size made for easy carry-on travel & the color went well with my new
"Fear The Tree" hat & t-shirt.

Basic Specs:
Wingspan: 22 in (559mm)
Overall Length: 20.5 in (521mm)
Flying Weight: 4.2 oz (119g)


Maiden: At WOT is more like a Hot Liner. Can slow down & glide.
As others have said, the stock CG of 1 inch is too far forward, it needs to go back.
Completed a 10 min WOT sortie today, like the speed demon.

With a Wing Cube Loading of 8.1, the eHawk is a General Sport plane.
The eHawk is not a slow flyer, thermal glider nor trainer.
I put the skill level at Advanced Beginner.

Oh well, put the wrong battery in, a new 3s I had just received for the Adagio.
Man, it flew beautifully with lots of authority.
Too bad I smoked the motor after 3 min.

(2 min 30 sec)

It helps to show how well it tracks & glides plus I was testing my camera filming at 60fps & producing at 30fps.

I like this little bugger, it is like a hot liner (in scale).
