An excellent parkflyer sized EPO jet. The BAE Hawk EDF jet comes 90% pre-built, just include your own brushless motor, servos, ESC, battery and radio gear (Tx/Rx). You will need 3 x 9g servos, one for the elevator, one for the ailerons and one for the steerable nose wheel. Because the BEA Hawk jet is made from EPO, it is very resistant to breakage and will literally bounce in light crashes. The material is also easily repairable and quite flexible.

Done some mods to this jet and made it a sloper, easiest plane to work on, nose is not really jet like, looks more like a birds beak! Will make a new nose cone from expander foam using the beak as a mould and reshape as required. Cut a servo in under the tail for the rudder which was the only real work done. Just waiting for a windy day as she might need a good breeze to fly. Overall a good aircraft and will post on flight testsJust flown 5 batteries with her and I am extremely satisfied with the model. My setup is 12 blade EDF, motor 2839 2600kv and with 4S 2800 mAh battery. I'm using 60A ESC. Battery sits perfectly to provide CG at 90mm from LE. With this CG, model is extremely stable in flight and doesn't need any trim at all. I haven't made any modification yet, using only 2 servos and no landing gear. Launch metod is bungee cord. The only thing that needs to be improved if using my power setup, is stifness of horizontal stabilizer. In a dive with full power, I experienced some preety scary flatter which was recovered in flight. I will reenforce stabilizer with some carbon and hopefully it will cure it.Just flown 5 batteries with her and I am extremely satisfied with the model.

Flys stable and is a great hand launcher. What are dissadvantages? 1. Heavy nose. Depending on your spec its better to fly it on 4S than 6S. It is impossible to move the battery further back due to construction obstacles (wood enforcements). 2. Poor acces to the back of the place for ESC and EDF instalation. 3. Really narrow space inside the plane, in the back section.
Advantages: 1. Low price. 2. Good handling (on windy conditions eighter). 3. Light weight.I bought one placed a 3200 4s battery and a doctor mad thrust 70mm 11 blade edf. Turnigy 60 amp esc had to trim the foam cover a little for fit. Added 3 quarters of an ounce of weight at the rear. She flies amazingly stable. Able to fly her in 15mph wind gust no problem.Great plane,
price performance better you can find.
I have used it with 12 blade fan, great! but is good also with orginal fan.
I have modified it with retract.....Just maiden this plane today.. its need 4 cell setup edf.. i have use chengsun 6 blade edf 2800kv motor. Fly very wellVery pleased with performance of this model (after a few modifications) I've upgraded the fan and motor which required the engine hatch to be cut larger to accommodate longer more powerful edf motor. Now getting about 4 mins flight with 3000mah battery and ten blade fan unit. I found the elevator push rods to be awkward to fit alongside wiring in upper fuselage so cut servo holes and mounted a small servo on each side to activate elevators. Model flies very smoothly but dual rates will probably be needed on elevator. There is no prop wash the elevator authority is limited when trying to land with little power. My first EDF and I'm well pleased with itNice model for the price but instructions very poor. A suggested COG position would have been nice. I fitted original fan with motor suggested but balance of fan was a bit out despite my attempts to balance it. Power was also limited so I upgraded fan and motor and opted for 4s system with 12 bladed fan. Time will tell if it was a wise move. ( Yet to fly it ! ) Nose cone is very thin and spoils the overall appearance of what is otherwise a nice looking model. Also chose to fit two 9g servos instead of Y shaped push rod which I considered may get caught up in the esc / motor harness. A good model to do a bit of edf testing.
