The Durafly Tomahawk is a great way to get into mini racing FPV flying wings!

From HobbyKing

This wing is only 670mm so it can be easily fit in your car for an after work flight. The wing is designed for stable flying and also allows for all the extreme maneuvers needed when racing.

The Tomahawk comes with all the great Durafly features such as easy to build, the best molded EPO foam around, quality construction and ball links on all control horns. Plus, there is a powerful power system already installed (2206-2050KV brushless motor, 20A ESC and 5045 propeller). Servos are also preinstalled so building takes next to no time.

With the decals supplied in four great colors (Red, Blue, Green, Orange) each of your mates can have a different color. This makes it easier for spectators to watch the race. There is a huge hatch that easily fits all your gear.

Being a plug and fly model all you need is a transmitter and receiver, add a battery and your flying. To get flying in FPV mode just add your own HS1177 style camera and video transmitter, put your goggles on and enjoy the flight. Camera position gives an uninterrupted view for extreme flying.

Seems good, spacious fuselage for a small wing and I like the changeable deck . The molded EPO instead of molded EPP is a bit of a deal breaker for me, but otherwise looks OK.

Quite like this one, but yes EPP would be better. not much FPV footage to judge the stability on though.

I wouldn't have an EPO FPV wing. Durafly will miss a lot of sales due to the Tomahawk not being an EPP model. Other than that, I would have bought one. Price point is a bit high also. A 2205 motor and a couple of inexpensive servos, plus about 10 cents of EPO beads does not equal their stated price point.

It's a very handsome airframe. Looks like it performs well.

I agree that the price is ridiculous. You can save $40 by getting the "kit" if you can supply your own motor and ESC. But $83 is still pretty steep for a pair of servos and a 26" foam wing.

I'm gonna wait and see if the price drops a bit. like ya'll said, to costly even for a durafly model.

I can get a PNF EPP molded race wing with FPV and flight controller for $83...

But will it fly better than the Strix nano Goblin?
The Goblin is 4in smaller running on a 1407 and the kit is $75

Word! You like the nano goblin? I just started learning wings (coming over from miniquads) on a Recruit and I love it. Just want something smaller and faster to scream around in the woods. I'm looking at an EPP kit around 24-27" or a PNP like the nano Goblin. Whaddya think?

Not if they are GOOD servos... after using good digital servos hard to go back and they cost money not saying these are that class or I'd use the stock servos.. only two in a wing so make em good ones EMAX or better or in the bin. And look (very) close you see it's a molded plastic foam composite and the entire nose is molded plastic covering the white foam extending past the C/G on the bottom, the tail section with motor mount is molded plastic over the EPO and the hatch is also plastic with good ventilation and you get two. There are other bits and pieces of custom plastic parts used and they add manufacturing costs so with $5 servos and a $10 motor of reasonable quality the price fits in with the market with the smaller EPP Nano Goblin @ $75 no motor or servos. Both amazing wings but very different. Addicting hobby...

It's not an EPO wing, it's plastic and foam composite construction that if good plastic will ware better than EPP. Huge difference in manufacturing cost and big difference in performance over any foam surface without adding much weight. Large cooling holes that actually work and reduce weight. Can't do that with foam alone. But I'm at a loss why the control horns are not placing the clevis over the hinge line. Perhaps for some reason on a CAD program it's easier to program using this type of mechanical control surface differential to deal with adverse yaw but I like symmetry for a starting point where this much up ... is... this much down... let's go up and down... and see what happens... and then adjust it till it rolls straight. But if it's rolling straight out of the box with stock radio symmetry to the RX most people won't notice to care so job well done as one less step for the new comer and easy enough to change the control horns.

I like this wing and with all the other sub 250 gram winged options out like the Nano Goblin creating a demand for quality micro servos and other micro electronic parts we should start seeing some cool stuff coming out like a wing that can call home and say where it is....

I ordered the Tomahawk from Hobbyking and have it on my table now. But I got a big issue with the CG. I purchased a 4S 1000 lipo (as recommended) but no change to get the right CG with (extremely nose heavy). EVEN without the FPV equipment which will bring even more weight to the front.
I think about cutting away the foam material under the wing stringer (right word?) in order to be able to bring the lipo a little bit more to the back. But I am feared that this loss of stability will not be good for the plane.

Any experiences available here already?
