hobbyking 90 mm L59


I was given a Hobbyking/CMPro L59 by a mate after it languished in his Hangar , We tried to fly it a few years back but gave up with retract issues etc . After stripping the 90 mm fan and lots of extra servos leads and replacing most of the servos I had the idea to stick a prop up its chuff !! Lots of looking online for a suitable motor to swing a 8 inch prop on 6 s later and I can report it flies with an awesome sound . I had my reservations of prop grinding as it rotated but went without issues , several flights since and its proving to be a good low cost fun model.

Would love to see a video of how she flew. Frustrated at how CMP Bae Hawk handle on 6s 90m EDF and 4500mah.
Wonder if you can add ventral fins like in F-16 to prevent prop strike and increase stability.

Edwen it flew very well even with the large drop tanks fitted not that fast but enough power to loop from level , best thing is the sound from the prop as the tips go supersonic ? .
I did fit a wire skid to stop prop strikes but it just lifts off without it scraping the runway .
