Hawk is a modern 1-meter DLG that is provided by Nikolay Gorban from High Quality with an exceptional flying performance for a very reasonable price.
The model is fully molded using high-quality materials. The fuse may have a hatch canopy to access the electronics. The wing is offered in one Glass and two Carbon versions – regular and light.
The fuse of this model can be made as a combination of 2.4GHz friendly glass fiber on the front and carbon on the tail.
The nose is designed to fit in all 4 servos in the pod. Considering the overall small size of the model, the pod has enough space for them, but you will need some basic building skills to put the model together.
The tail construction is very similar to the full-size DLGs with a removable horizontal stabilizer mounted underneath the tail boom. All the parts are molded which ensures shiny surfaces, exceptional stiffness, and low weight.
The wing construction features a solid CNC-cut foam core with a glass or carbon fiber layup. It comes almost ready to go, with the pre-hinged ailerons and shiny graphics.
The model comes with a complete accessories pack including the launch peg, control horns, torque springs for tails, pull wires, and a servo tray.
