I recently picked up a hawk pro from a friend who has changed his mind bout learning to fly and I really like the looks of the funkey airwolf fuse kit for the model. What I wanted to know was, is the hawk pro a good mechanical setup for the airwolf fuse ? And would it be a terribly hard project for an experienced modeler coming from the land of 3D flight? Any advise in the right direction would be very appreciated.

RC Heli magazine just published an article on the build of the Airwolf with the Century Hawk mechanics. It's the Jan 2007 issue, if you can get a copy.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

It works pretty good, but ther is not a lot of room in the 30 size fuse.

Personally, I would strech the mechanics and do the 50 size fuse.

that is very good advice.
though the 30 size fuse will fit well, you will appreciate the extra room of the 50 size fuse and it will still fly well with the 30 size powerplant, especially if it is the os 37 or toki 40.

Is there any comparison pics available of the 30 and 50 side by side that anyone knows of, How much of a difference is there in "working room"? The heli is brand new with the Toki 40, so I suppose it will fly scale just fine???
Coming from 3D heli flight, I'm really stoked to start this scale project for a change of pace. plan on test flying the mechanics sunday to get everything ironed out. Thanks again for your advise guys.

The difference is more than you would think.

You can run the .40 with 580 blades and the 50 size boom.

With the right tune you should be fine for spirited airwolf missions.

I used an OS32SXH in my Bell 222 with the Hawk mechanics. It actually flew very well (in scale flying, you do not require the high power output that you do for 3D flying, where many G's are being pulled). In fact, a British magazine that reviewed it also said that the OS32SXH was more then enough power.

Seeing how well my Hawk Pro pod & boom flies with the Toki 40, relaive to the OS32 it had in it before, you will find your Toki 40 will easily handle the extra weight of the 30 size fuselage (and probably that of the 50 size fuselage also).

With the 50 size fuselage you may have to go to the longer Falcon/Raven boom and tail drive system to fit it properly.

The main difference will be in the extra room on the inside of the fuselage that will make it easier for working on and setting up the retracts.

Also with the longer boom and mainblades you will have a better disc loading if ever you have to auto.
