About this Plan

Sea Hawk. Free flight gas model. Class C contest model. Wing area 700 sq in. Convertible between land a sea plane (see article pages for further drawing, showing floats).

Quote: "The C Hawk was designed and developed in accord with the firm conviction that consistent flight qualities come first in the winning of contests.

We have all seen a number of potentially hot performers, but they are so unreliable from flight to flight that the average (and expert) modeller dcoesn't stand a chance in controlling them - for long. The basic cause of these disatstrous spirals and loops is the AMA's antiquated 80oz power loading rule. With our present day motors developing twice the thrust of the completed ship's weight, it's not surprising that the cfasualty rate is so high.

Hree in the Northwest the majority of clubs adopted a minimum power loading requirement of 120 oz per cu in of engine displacement. It is around this standard that our ship is designed..."

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

Thanks Pit, I have updated this listing now.

There should be one more page to the article. If that could be added, that would be a big help.

* 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.
