    Phoenix models BAe Hawk 1:6.25 scale

    Hey guy's

    Phoenix models have just released a 1: 6 1/5 scale hawk. It's designed for a 120mm EDF, but it looks like a good canidate for a turbine

    Maybe this is the next Falcon 120?? It would be nice to have a cheap option to get into a scale(ish) model. it comes with air retracts and oleos, and a full cockpit.

    Thanks

    Exactly what I was thinking. I have my K80 in the Falcon 120, and this is designed for a 7kg EDF setup, so the K80 sounds like it should just be fine.

    The major hurdle for me was the cost. I'm guessing that it will need a fair bit of work like the falcon120 did to bring it up to turbine ready standards. but I just ordered one, and it cost $629 (AUD) and that includes the air retracts and oleo's. So it could turn out to be a very cost effective scale airframe. The wing has definitely been oversized from a scale perspective, but then again, this ain't no skymaster either!

    specs:

    - Wingspan: 1600mm (63 in)
    - Length: 1700mm (67 in)
    - Flying weight: 6.8-7.0 kg
    - Wing area: 48 dm2
    - Wing loading: 145g/dm2
    - Wing type: Semi-symmertrical airfoils
    - Covering type: Genuine ORACOVER®
    - Retract gear type: Air retract gear with CNC Suspension Metal Struts (included)
    - Radio: 6 - 9 channel . 9 mini hi-torque servo: 2 aileron; 2 flap;
    2 elevator; 1 rudder; 1 steering nose; 1 retract (not included)
    - Servo mount : 13mm x 26mm
    -
    RECOMMENDED EDF AND BATTERY SET UP
    - EDF: 120mm, Minimum thrust 7 kg. As BVM 3-12S EVF or Ramtec 120mm …(not included)
    - Lipo cell: 12 cells / up 6000mAh 60C (not included)
    - Esc HV 160 A Phoenix Casttle (not included)


    Feature


    - Covered in genuine ORACOVER®
    - Top quality balsa/light plywood construction
    - Air-retract With CNC Suspension Metal Struts included
    - Full-depth cockpit and instrument panel and pilot included
    - Scale antenna included
    - Bolt-on two-piece wing for easy transport and setup at the field
    - Removable canopy for easy change lipo battery and set up radio
    - Strong Light Weight Construction
    - Superb flying characteristics, plus an accurate scale outline
    - High-quality hardware package included

    Ive got it's little brother from Blackhorse models. The Viper Jet with a 90mm fan in it. Very good Jet considering where it's from. All balsa ply construction. Was quite pleasantly surprised. They also have an L 39 of the same size as the Hawk, which would be a good candidate for K 80 power with the required stregthining.

    I would even consider putting a turbine in the viper if Kingtek ever bring out a 3.5-4 kg engine. But do already have a big Viper.

    I'll be quite interested in ya progress bro.

    I built their 50cc Mustang Dave and it was a brilliant kit. I was really impressed with the quality, pre hinging and cockpit details. Also the hardware kit (except for the air fittings) was excellent and really well designed. The control horns were keyed so they couldn't move and after 60+ flights before I sold it they were perfect with the old DLE-55 rattling away in the nose.

    With the retracts, I striped them down, cleaned, greased and threw back together with locktite and they never leaked once, In fact they would hold air all day. I did need to use some brass 4mm-3mm adaptors as the nipples on the retracts were for 4mm air hose. I have been looking at this one as well and will be interested to see how it goes.

    Cheers

    Like the blackhorse L39 you could stick a P60 in that, not the best scheme though

    Thanks guy's

    It's good to hear some experience with the manufacture, and that's it's been positive. Had a look at the L-39 and I reckon the k80 would be too much, but my Wren 54 on the other hand..... Nah, that's slated to go into my 1/4 Me-163 as soon as I start building it if I stop getting distracted! The other interesting thing with that L-39 is that It's dimensional the same, but only half the weight, and but I don't like the chances of getting this one up and flying well on a 90mm EDF unless it was a really hot setup. My last build was actually a 90mm EDF Hawk.... post some pic's and vid's to keep everyone entertained while we wait.

    Hey Disco, I'm hoping like crazy it's glass, but I'm guessing from what the guys have posted here that there is every chance it will be built up. not that it's a major. it will be lighter, but I'll prefer glass given a choice. Guess if I need to glass the model it'll a perfect opportunity to change up the scheme.

    Will post all the info I can up as it arrives.

    Thanks

    dave

    Hey ernie,

    Not here yet... They said it could take up to a couple of weeks.

    I ordered it via a hobby shop here in brissy, but it's coming from model engines.

    thanks

    The new US importer has said that there has been a UK importer appointed for Phoenix, but has not named who...

    they are available in Germany already.

    hope that helps

    thanks

    Phoenix have been around quite a while, but the inference I took from their comments was that they have changed their UK distributors.

    A quick email to mcGregor's will confirm or deny any of those rumours.

    MacGregor gave up with Pheonix because of "Chinese price games" I looked at their stand at Nuremberg and again the quality is very good,although the Oleo legs looked like the BH Viper units which I tried to machine for a friend...toffee metal.

    Lets hope we hear who the UK supplier will be soon as we need more realistically priced jets available in the UK and indeed elsewhere. Particularly as the Under Carriage is included with these models
