Designed for the RAF to replace the Folland Gnat, the BAE Hawk has become one of the most succesful jet training aircraft ever built and is used by many Nations both as a trainer and as a combat aircraft. The Hawk is of course used by the world famous Red Arrows display team and it is undoubtedly one of the prettiest military jets ever built, especially in this fantastic display scheme!
This beautiful Hawk just oozes quality, the deep gloss finish and attention to scale detail is amazing, this level of finish is normally reserved for large scale turbine models and EDF models with a much, much higher price tag, even the scale pilots and cockpit are included. The one peice removable wing is retract ready and features flaps, the glassfibre ducting is well designed & all included, the hardware is also good quality, as you would expect for a model this well made. For the final touch, we have a set of purpose built electric retracts available, which feature sprung scale trailing link leg's and alloy wheels, they are designed to fit straight in with no mod's (NOT included, see related items below).
As well as truly amazing looks, this HobbyKing® ™Hawk is designed for performance, there is tons of canopy space for Lipoly's, a high power 6s set up would be the minimum for jet like performance, 8s would take you into ballistic territory! The Hawk is such a stunning jet to fly, both fast and aerobatic, so we would reccomend High Torque Metal Gear mini servo's all round. This high quality BAE Hawk is one of the best looking and performing 90mm EDF jets available anywhere, a genuine scale, high performance EDF at an affordable price, for jet fans, this Hawk is a must!
