The T-45 Goshawk EDF jet comes as a kit only and requires a powerful 30A brushless 64mm EDF system and 3 servos. This well detailed, quality EPO jet is only the kit without all the electronic parts, Please see another listing for Ready-To-Fly verion.
i have the a stinger 64 and i also have this goshawk. it would not be efficient to put the standard stinger 64 edf unit in this model. what you need for this model is a good 4cell set up. try the 64mm alloy edf unit istead it would be a blast PRODUCT ID: 107000006 . i run mine w/ zippy 2200 4cell 45c its a blast to fly
Please help me..
Is it okay if I use a stock motor and electronic from stinger v1?
I have a stock electronic from stinger. But my stinger kit crashed and cannot be repaired.
My plan is buy this kit and put my electonic on this..
I already have the motor and CP 10 blade fan..I just wanted to know if I could use the motor and CP10 blade fan.
Also..Does anyone know what is included in the box..i did not get the aileron control rods you can see in the product pix.
Why not? I have mine with a 70mm 10 blade fan in it. Just need some dremel work and it will fit. The aileron connecting rod should be included, you may like to contact HK and ask for it.
I bought the kit version and it includes:
1. nose cone
4. Horizontal Stab X2
5. Vertical Stabl
6. Elevator connecting rod and clevis
7. Aileron connecting rod X2 and clevis
8. Landing gear and wheels
11. Cockpit secure lip
12. Sticker decal set
13. red triangle stickers for red area around the nose
14. Intake covers
Ricksonchow thank you for that..I eventually found the.hidden under some stuff in one of the attached boxes.What motor/ESC/Battery combo are you using? I have the L2855-2800Kv motor.Would that give me the power and if so what battery should I use?
That's great that you finally found it. I am using Turnigy plush 60A esc. I was using the L2855 2800 to power the 70mm 10 blade for 4S, but now I switched to L2855 2300 for 5S. This setup gave me much more power with a lower amp draw.
I would strongly recommend ID: 107000006. It suits the mounting position of this plane just perfectly! besides through home made bench tests I can confirm that this motor gives about 800-900g of thrust at full 4s battery, taking 50A at peak. so supply your set with 50-60A ESC (I'd recommend "turnigy trust" 45-55 or plush 60 (depending of your flying temper)) and 1800mah battery (ID: N1800.4S.35 allso suits perfectly into battery area of this plane). you will not be disappointed!
This airplane came with 5-blade impeller, I want to use the Turnigy 2610 EDF Outrunner 5000kv for 55/64mm fans. There was no adapter with the airplane? Which adapter do I use to fit the motor with the fan? I have got a 3.0mm axle on the motor.
I see some (most?) of the reviews for the UK warehouse complaining about the nose cone being missing (and the usual cr*p service when they try to sort it out). It's not shown as being separate in the pics, so where does it start? Is it the whole of the bit with T45 painted on it? How wide is it, at the base, or how wide is the nose where it attaches? Is it a plastic cone, or a foam section?
I bought it form HK when the UK warehouse was out of stock. Fortunately nothing was missing. The nose cone is made of very thin soft plastic. It is 77mm wide and 80mm tall. The length of the cone is around 134mm
the best fan motor for this plane is ID: 107000006. it gives about 800-900g of thrust at 4s. you need 50-60A ESC to power it (I'd recommend turnugy plush 60 or turnigy trust 55 (turnigy trust 45 will allso be suitable if you're not going to fly at full throttle all the time)) and the battery 1800mah 35C
Hi I fly this with a HK2826 EDF 3800kv Motor and a 6 Blade Ducted Fan Unit (SKU:OR003-00104-6b). Flies great and lots of power. Also a thrust tube made a big difference. A soda cup from Mc Donalds or somewhere with the botom cut out make a good thrust tube.
Caulnian I did I was adding to JORDI: This plane reqires this: B3830 Brushless Outrunner 4300kv (NOT INCLUDED) But the one in the F18 is: Motor: B2025 Brushless Inrunner (4300KV) EDF Diameter: 64mm. Yes it is the same out side size 64mm but yours is far less powerfull. They both will spin aat the same speed give the same battery. But less thrust different fan SO NO NO
good night, I think that F5's power motor it's poor for this jet, but i have been flyng three or four times whit this motor, it flies good, but it needs more power. Last week I received a new 64mm impeller for my T-45 (the other was broken for a crash) next week I will put the new impeller in the old t-45's motor, with this motor It flies better. Bye.
Hello, I would like to buy this kit using my old motor and esc from my heli. would this fit?
1. Turnigy E500 6T 4000Kv 200W Heli Motor
2. TowerPro H40A Brushless Speed Controller
Your response is highly appreciated.
I THINK BETTER TO PUT MOTOR 4800 KV AND 60A BRUSHELLES SPEED CONTROL IF U FLY WHIT 3S 3000MAH
THEN IF U USE 4S 2650MAH BETTER TO USE A 3600 KV MOTOR AND IT WILL FLY PERFECTLY AND FAST.....
WHIT 3S SETTING U WILL NOT DO LOOPING ETC..ETC...
Can someone recommend a Motor and 64mm EDF combo that will work well with this jet on 2200Mah 3S lipo's.
I do understand that 4S would work better, but I don't want to have to purchase yet another set of batteries. I'm just after a simple EDF jet to have some fun with and this looks fairly cheap.
I'm usually just heli's (250, 450, 550) and indoor foam planes, just wanted to try something different.
A good combination, im using this:
cyclone turbojet 4500 kv edf
14.8 volts 3300 mah
skywing 80 amps ecs
Thrust tube and intake lips
The performance are very good and you can do unlimited vertical climb.But..yo need put a carbon fiber bar in the wing!!!!.
2 thumbs up!
I had one of these a while ago, and it was awesome. Really stable in flight and beautiful too. I crashed it when I was distracted for a second, but as soon as these are in stock I'll buy another one. I will use a Turnigy 2615 4800kv motor with a 40 amp ESC to get a better than 1:1 thust to wieght ratio. I recommend these to anyone with some flight experience,they are fantastic jets. And of course you can easily mod them to add rudder.

This is a real EPO kit, not the old sapac foam!!! There are some new details and new improvements: ailerons linkage, elevator struts are stronger, better canopy and cockpit, better wheels. Seems a good kit to work with. Thank you HK!

2. Has parts list
3. Can add HK e-tracts VERY easily in current landing gear

Received it yesterday. There is no fan in the kit as described. Looks nice but I can not say that the quality is exellent. The parts need to be reclued. The front landing gear shoul be reinforced. I'm going to fly it with origin Sapac EDF with Sapac Black Tornado 2853 4800KV motor.
