Where did that tree come from?

I loved the paint scheme on my composite jet the most but my second choice would have been camo.
BAeHawk Lighting Mods (2 min 11 sec)

I seem to recall a paint scheme poll for the 70mm F-104. I would like to believe that eventually that poll was the cause of the new version silver/white F-104, which caused me to buy a second F-104. Too bad they are not doing that for this version.

Lets just wait and see..

Mostly all of FMS "new" releases, and many of the old had two paint schemes at launch. Look at the Avanti, Futura, and Super Scorpion , Yak-130 and F7F Tigercat all were released with 2 paint schemes... There's probably a second one in the pipeline that we haven't seen.

Unlikely. The "combat" version is a different airframe, not a paint job.

I would not have to think twice about getting a combat version.

I can't see the problem with the red arrows scheme, its highly visible and if two or more of you at the club buy one it would be great for display flights.
Too many plans in my hanger are military grey and difficult to orientate on a 'normal' British sky!
Bring it on, i'll be buying one.

I am for this color scheme, red color is much easier to see and looks fine. Swiss color scheme could be also an alternative.
I hope it flyes as good as it looks.
It would be nice if FMS will sell it as "raw white foam version", for all those going with a personal color scheme.

Why does FMS not show it on their website?

I think they have a lot on their hands.

They will release their 70mm F-18 soon. A must have!

I think it'll be hard to chose between the two. I don't have room for two more 70mm jets! lol

Price looks very steep compared to the competition if this is anything to go by:

Look at the other jets on this link, the UK price looks like USD price with just a currency symbol change. I shall wait for the ship from FMS price is released.

Yes, but a number of UK stores are now showing this model on pre-order at 399, whilst they have comparable (less lights) FW 80mm substantially cheaper; so by this admittedly very small statistical sample it looks to be about 20-25% more expensive than the FW 80mm category. I like you will see what FMS want, and then probably wait for one of their sales.

pricing in Europe


at Turbines RC in France, the Hawk is currentlly listet (pre-order) for 400 Euros

https://www.turbines-rc.com/en/jets-...awk&results=14

just as was the 80mm Avanti, but they have a 10% discount on the Avanti now, so it is 360 Euros, but sold out in red

https://www.turbines-rc.com/en/jets-...tura&results=4

the less popular purple is discounted to around 335 Euros

https://www.turbines-rc.com/en/jets-...tura&results=4

interesting that the new Freewing A4 (pre-order) is listed at around 380 Euros, cheaper than the FMS BAE Hawk...

https://www.turbines-rc.com/en/jets-...awk&results=14

I would wait for the FMS Hawk to be available for 360 before pulling the trigger
