Miles Sparrow Hawk (by Seagull Models) (2010).
I fancied a fairly large aerobatic model that had a bit
of character, and feeling too lazy to build my own,
purchased an ARFT, (Almost Ready To Fly), kit. It still
involves quite a but of 'assembly', so it felt I had put
my mark on it.
Span - 63"
Wing Area - 746sq.ins.
Flying Weight - 8lb : 11ozs.
Wing Loading - 26oz/sq.ft.
Motor - BL4030 Brushless, 385kv
Battery - 6s Lipo, 4500mAh, (2x 3s in series).
Propeller - APCe 14 x 7, - 26Amps, 600watts, 8300rpm.
Flies just how I like it, great fun and can handle the gusty weather I seem to be plagued with. It does have quite a high landing speed so judging the approach is important if you don't want a long walk, as it can float on and on.
Sold, as I want the equipment for another build, the Spitfire.
