The RQ-4B Global Hawk is at the cutting edge of UAV development, this particular version was aquired by NASA for high altitude atmospheric and weather research. This fantastic scale model captures the jaw dropping looks of this state of the art aircraft, both on the ground and in the air, courtesy of it's high scale detail and it's huge wingspan!
The Global Hawk is made from super tough EPO foam and is easy to assemble, the powerful EDF unit, ESC and all servo's are all pre-installed and the superb waterslide decals have been expertly applied. The model features plug in under-carriage but also comes with aileron servo blisters to protect those vulnerable servo arms for those who want to hand-launch. Despite the huge wingspan, the Global Hawk is very practical and features plug in wings for easy transportation and field assembly.
Models of UAV's often don't have the best reputation in terms of flight performance, the H-King Global Hawk is the exception, the powerful 64mm EDF offers huge thrust, more than enough in fact, allowing the Global Hawk to cruise on 1/2 throttle, the control surfaces offer precise control for scale flying and there is no doubt, this model looks magnificent at altitude and positively mean when making low, high speed passes! With UAV's increasingly making the headlines these days, the Global Hawk offers you the chance to experience the future of military aviation!

Probably the most unstable airplane I've ever flown in the 15 years iv been flying. You literally need 150 feet of smooth runway with a 3s, and never try a hand launch unless you have a 4s and a good arm. Anything with factory glue you might as well go over it with you own, one of the lading gear came off from just a taxi check. As far as flying iv hardly kept it in the air since it tip stalls incredibly east, even with flaps. To sum it up, only buy if you have a lot of room for take off and to fly fast since its the only way to keep it in the air. Also ad 3/4 of an ounce to the tail if you have a 4s 2200Just picked this up a week ago. Its a great bird to have. Its a pretty big head turner as well. I mounted a small HD camera on it and put it up to about 800 feet and cut the throttle off completely. It just floated around like a bird looking for a dead animal. They recommend a 4S 1800, but I flew it with a 3S 4000 and had no issue other that it takes a little longer to gain high altitude due to less power from the battery. I highly recommend only hand launching it if you have a 4S installed, a 3S will not do it. If you take off like normal, give yourself at least 60 yards for a 3S and less for a 4S. Also highly recommend, dial down your rudder control throw to about 60 percent. Reason being is that the nose is a little heavy with that battery and the slightest turn of the wheel while trying to taxi will send it out of control, not to mention it will potentially bend your nose gear and your wings will catch the ground and scratch them up. Throttle management is awesome due to its large wingspan so grab a chair, send it up and watch it just glide with ease. The box come with no instructions, so if your a novice builder, I suggest you consult with someone who is to make sure your build goes smoothly. The servos are cheap, so make sure your trims are in good so you dont have any servo rattle where you can burn them out quickly. The wings are solid due to the CF rods in them. When ythey sent me two left wings... and now want a pic of the wing they didnt send ? go figure, only been fly n for 38yrs... beware !!!Well landing on the wheels sucks..... I hate landing on wheels when there is just some cheap glue holding the wheels in places. I land on its undercarriage but I made the horns on top of the wing and have the servo horn come throw the wing so it won't snag on anything. The stock motor is to weak. Lets just say it needs a lot of mods to be good. Save your time and money and get SOMTHING better...... If you do want it here is one tip it needs to go fast it will tip stalljust got the global hawk in today. it only 2 weeks and it was in stock. took way to long to get in hobby king. anyway i am very impressed with the quality and the durability of the global hawk. when i put everything together i noticed that it had a bad servo right out of the box, it wasn't a biggie since i have tons of spare servos laying around. the servos are 5g micro servos but any regular sub micro or micro servos will work. the glue that comes with the plane i tried to use but it takes forever to cure, so instead i used foam safe fast drying glue. the battery compartment is massive, it will fit any size battery from 2200 mah up to my 4000mah 14.8v battery's, it might fit a 5000 but im not sure since i do not own one. battery connect or is a xt60 coming off the esc. it does fly better than i expected since this is my first edf i was very impressed how well it did fly.Bought this about a week ago, Came next day, I took it out of the box and everything was there as it should, There was not instructions with this plane, As i put it together i noticed that the screws that are there for the wheels are too big so had to drill bigger holes, The motor seems to vibrate very bad weather or not this is because the prop is not balanced or not but dont no, There is a problem with the lining up with the wings, The wheels fell of as putting it together, it was the plastic that you screw the wheels on to that fell out but apart from them every thing seems fine such as Very strong magents for the canopy so holds on well, Tight fit for the wings so holds in good, Very strong body and wings, Motor is very powerful, Massive space inside so good for fpv equiptment and a bigger battery, Over all not bad product, Not flown yet but will let you all no how it goes.Just received the HK Global Hawk. The package is good. it features adouble box packing which minimise damage to the kit. The overall of the kit is very good, High quality EPO with water slide decal applied. The only thing that I am not very happy is that the spec indicate that it is equipped with 65mm fan, in fact, it was only 60mm instead. So when I tried to replace the fan, I had to trim out about 2mm all round the duct to fit in a 65mm fan.. 4 / - 6 /. 3S 2200 mah 45C, 620 . 3S 2200 mah 25C , . 5 . ,plus Easy to assemble (it's my first ever R/C-plane)
plus construction seems well thought through
plus Decals easy to remove (I'm gonna make this a Luftwaffe Eurohawk)
- No manual included (but available online)
- Tail parts didn't fit 100pcnt, correction necessaryWell my story is not a good one unfortunately..first my order was lost and took over two months to sort it out. Got a credit reordered the plane when it arrived two left wing and one missing stabilizerwe are in the month of Aug. flying season half over and no replacements parts sent. I keep checking in but the supplier is not responding so HK statesit looks good but waiting over three months now!
