Makes a good flying plane even better.
My thought exactly. When Iím flying mine club members keep asking for me to fly verticals

Great on flight times too

I am set up the control surface movements and have couple of questions;
The max movement from the elevator is about 15mm.
The Flap movement for landing flaps is about 20mm this minimum.

What are the solutions other people have used?

Thanks I trimmed the elevators and that fixed the lack of move.
I shifted the linkages around on the flaps so now the flaps are flaps not dive brakes.

I am working out the battery position so far this is as far back as I can go without getting longer servo leads and my CG is only at 152mm not 162mm. I think the battery is going to be too far back and I have some other problem. Would anyone like to post a photo of their CG. Thanks.

You will need to get your receiver off the battery tray.
I made a little shelf from lite ply above and to the rear of the battery tray.
And yes, I believe I used some servo extensions.

I fly mine with CNHL G+ 70C 4000, on their side (to make them narrower) pushed as far back as they will go. Only the front third of the battery is on the tray. My receiver sits on the front of the tray. That gets the CG pretty close.

This may be the wrong forum to ask, but do any of you use any 'anti-spark' device/connector with the Hawk?

I havenít found the need for one myself.

Nope.

I have flown electric heli's, drones, and planes for years and have found that it is not necessary for 6s packs.

Thanks all.
I have not seen or heard a "spark" with 6s on the Hawk with EC5 connectors but on several of my 6s powered planes and heli's I do hear and see a "spark". All of these have Deans connectors and have pit marks on the connectors. Wonder if there is something special about EC5 connectors.
