Video of 35mm Red Arrow Hawk

First flight of the 35mm Red Arrows Hawk.

With the 240mAh 2S batteries the CG was a little back from where it was indicated in the manual. This made the jet very unsteady so landed right away.  A little more weight was added to the nose to bring the CG forward.  It flew much better, the CG could do with going forward a little more.

I plan to try flying the jet on some heavier 3S batteries which should sort the CG issues and give it a bit more power.  The speed is fine but it do with a little more power to help with climbing.

It flew very well, nice and steady gave the feel of a larger plane.  Once the above issues are sorted will get into some aerobatics 🙂
