For Sale Thermal Hawk

Post  jsesere on Thu Nov 19, 2015 9:35 am

It's less the radio gear, I don't see any fuselage damage and I think the wing tip can be repaired with some spare foam and glue. I have no idea what the cost would be to ship it would be and I guess I'll have to make a box for it. You can have it for what you think it's worth to you plus shipping. I'll ship at the lowest possible cost with confirmed delivery.

Nice plane. I had one back in the 1980's and used it on a hi-start, BIG rubber band, at an almost built middle school site. Easy flyer and survived most crashes. I still have the wing, but can't find the fuselage.

Sounds like you need one hint hint. I'll toss the wing to save me the aggravation of building a box.

Thanks, but I have so many planes, gliders, boats and cars I will have to live to be 100 to fly or use each one for 10 minutes. I have about 20 sets of wings from 24 inch wingspan to 96 inch wingspan and fuselages in various states of repair for each or sometimes 2 or 3 different wings for a particular plane. Would if I could. I am just trying to tell everyone how easy a flyer the Hawk was.

For Sale offer on the Hawk

Post  stevej on Mon Dec 21, 2015 11:52 pm

I'll offer $25 including shipping to 93612. Keep the servos & cut the wing in half for a smaller box. I'd put a Pee Wee on it and let my grandkids fly it free flight. Let me know.

I think the wing is already 2 pieces with a plastic sticky pieces, (top and bottom), to hold the 2 pieces together. When the wing is mounted on the fuselage it is held in place with the clear tape pieces along with the rubber bands cross banded like an "X".

edited 12-21-2015 at 11:22p.m. PST - to add information

p.s. I used a brass tube in 1/2 of the wing and a piece of piano wire, stainless steel, about 8 inches long, half glued in the other half of the wing aligned with the tubing piece placed approximately where the wing spar would be, 25 to 30% back from the leading edge. Piano wire based on wing size. For this wing I used 1/8 inch or 3/32 inch SS and the corresponding brass tubing to accept the piano wire. I also place another piano wire - brass tubing pair about 2 inches from the trailing edge. Piano wire 1/16 inch diameter and corresponding brass tubing.
   Makes for a strong 2 piece wing. If you use plastic tubing instead of brass tubing you can save a little weight, but be sure to leave the piano wire in the tubing when it is glued-epoxied in place because the plastic tubing can curl or bend if not held straight when epoxied in place.  Two Cents

Yup, I think the 2 screws go thru the elevator, into the rudder.
   Haven't you taken the screws out yet? That's the first thing I do. Take it all apart and check all the screws. They are hard to find sometimes.

     Get er done.
