She's just at 5 lbs 8oz AUW with a 4S battery. Some weight, but she should be okay. All tail control rods are hidden linkages and I spent some time on the rivet detail. Rebuilt the .50s on her too. Split the canopy and put it on sliding rails as well.

Regarding the windshield - the FMS design is problematic. I did round off the bottom edge to get rid of the abrupt 90 degree point - I was totally frustrated by that as well!

The wire wheels are fragile and I put the red ones of for landing on dirt.

Fantastic Hawk, Pat!

I remember as a kid, years ago back in the 70's, I had built the 1/72nd scale Monogram Curtiss P-6E Hawk, Boeing F4B-4, and another wonderful Bipe fighter from the thirties that I can't remember the designation, but it had a radial engine...good times

What's the power set-up? And how does she fly?

Again, great job,
John
