Little Hawk (oz5282)
About this Plan
Little Hawk - Radio control sport model.
Quote: "OK, finally, I got around to getting the pictures of this Little Hawk airplane. Here are the specs: Span 45 1/2"; Chord 8 1/4; Length 35"; Weight as pictured, with engine but less radio: 2 1/4 pounds. Recommended power: Strong .15 to a mild .29. Engine shown, a Fox plain bearing .19R/C with a Rev-Up 8-5 prop and 15% fuel, is about right for daily flying. Plans show an ENYA .19TV. I think a PAW .19R/C would be perfect.
This airplane was advertised in the model magazines around 1970, sold by Herb Abrams' Rand Sales, as a combo with a Fox .15R/C slant plug and a World Engines 'Blue Max' semi-kit four-channel radio system on 27mc. Semi-kit means all the PC board work was done, and the modeler had only to complete the transmitter board/stick mechanisms interwiring, assemble three of the four S4-B servos and the switch/battery harness. The transmitter RF deck was already assembled and tuned, so the modeler didn't need any FCC licensing to complete the radio. Just wire up the receiver to the decoder, tune to the transmitter and off you go. One of the S4-B servos arrived assembled and centered at 1.5ms neutral; it was provided that way for adjusting the four channels' respective stick for neutral, then you matched the other three servos to that. All for $200 shipped. I don't think this Rand Sales company was related to either the RAND Corp. or the Rand company selling Galloping Ghost equipment. A very rare model, I've seen no others save a kit on eBay a couple years ago. As you can see, the kit was from Japan, and all instructions on the plans are in Japanese. Simple to build if you have a few kits under your belt. Nice flier, no bad habits I could find in near 80 flights. Perfect for electric or diesel, as well as glow, two or four stroke. This one, in the pictures, built in 1971, was on display at the 2014 AMA EXPO."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsAfter crashing my TF Tauri in 1970, I bought this kit - was also available without the "package deal" and flew the pants off it in Germany. Ended up giving it to a club member when I started flying CG Skylarks.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
