Hawk 2 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.
In December 2022 the model got a major update to the fuselage.
The Summary Of The Changes To The Hawk 2
– A lot of customers complained about the pod size of the original Hawk so now it got enlarged to give you more room for equipment.
– Hatch cover was giving a hard time for a lot of pilots being not super convenient. So Hawk 2 has got a slip on nose cone.
– The wing and tails remained untouched, so there will be not a lot of changes to how the model flies.
The front portion of the fuse is made 2.4GHz friendly to allow for internal antenna installs.
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 XPS foam core with a glass or carbon fiber layup. It comes almost ready to fly, 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.
