Nice ! I left my cheaters in there, with a steel mesh on the outside.

I wish this Hawk was a bit bigger, 90mm size Exactly the same, nice and light, but bigger ...

Herb I took some inspiration from your install. I made a lower mount for the esc.
Then cut 3mm depron fillers to extend the ducting but still provide esc cooling. I’m very happy with the final result! I glued the inner cheater covers in place and cut pieces for on the outside of the wing.
Not sure how much these mods will improve performance but I do have fun doing them.
Hope you dont mind me posting in your blog.

I completed the final mod tonight. It was a bit tricky with the the compound curves but I was able to glue the cheater opening covers in place. I’ll pickup the matching red paint so they’ll blend right in.

Now i can start final assembly and radio setup!

We had a 65 degree sunny day yesterday. Did the maiden and two additional flights. Great flying jet!

Nice to hear ! She tracks like a pattern plane. Don't you find her "almost too fast" for her size ?

I wish they had done the exact same one, but scaled up to 90mm ... That would be a killer.

We had a break in the weather Saturday so I made three additional flights. It really is a superb flying model! My only complaint is a minor one, one of the main wheels is out of round causing it to bounce when you taxi

Yes it is a superb flying model ... very efficient in every aspect. I just wish it was bigger, exact same but in 90 size.

The more I fly this jet the more I love it!
Added the semi scale main struts what a difference they make.

The important thing is how neutral this model flies, it’s on rails!

Flown that one .. for a friend. It is an overweight over-whistled and over-belled flying pig.

I have this 90mm WeMoTec one flying on 9S :
