Great plane in the air Review by Flier Tom
Rating
I have held back reviewing this plane until I got some flight time on it. I first bought the HawkSky V2 RTF from Grayson and then a PNP version from another supplier since it was out of stock at Grayson. The HawkSky V2 is a great plane to fly once I get in the air. Putting it together is really pretty easy with the exception of putting the prop on. The outer lock nut is very tight. It was really hard to hold the motor shaft tight enough to screw the nut on because there isn’t much shaft to get pliers on. So, I was able to get pliers on the motor shaft before putting the prop on the shaft. Then I threaded the lock nut on and off the shaft a few times to loosen it up a little. It helped me tighten the nut once the prop was on. Still tricky though. No other issues with building. The instructions incorrectly say the Center of Gravity is 55mm from the back of the canopy. The correct CoG 58mm to 62 mm from leading edge of wing. My CoG is 65mm and plane is not tail heavy and flies very well there. Be sure to follow the instructions to calibrate the transmitter throttle to the ESC.
I was only able to hand launch one time with a fairly strong wind in my face. All hand launches with no wind resulted in a steep nose crash. I read and watched videos of hand launching pusher prop planes and tried many times. Looks easy, but isn’t. Tried fairly easy toss and hard toss with level and upward toss angles with 50% to 60% throttle. Always nose crash. I can only get it to glide with no power into some wind. I think it is just fairly heavy and hard to toss it just right to above stall speed and not any problem with the plane itself. Maybe some people might have the ability to hand launch it, but not me. Really destroyed the nose and eventually battery/servo mount and tail. I was determined to get this thing in the air so I bought a HawkSky V2 PNP from the other supplier and decided to try runway launch with the landing gear. The landing gear and wheels may work to take off and land on a very smooth road or tarmac. Forget grass with those small wheels. I tried a baseball infield, but still couldn’t get take off speed with the fairly soft dirt. Might work with much longer takeoff distance. Pebbled or gravel runway has same problems. So, here is what worked for me. I bought DuBro 3” slim wheels. Cut the landing gear and re-bent it so the wheels are much closed to the wings. I think the shorter landing gear protects it from damage when landing in thick grass. Take off can still be a little difficult on a bumpy surface (with some grass spikes) and poor asphalt/gravel runway, but the 3” wheels really do help and I can manage to take off more often. A baseball dirt infield works well for takeoff. I have no problem on that surface. The large wheels also really help landing on thick grass. Just try to get the speed down when landing. Landing the HawkSky is quite easy. Just glide it in for a good distance.
I like the RTF transmitter. It feels good and controls smoothly proportional to stick movement. It has a motor break switch to prevent motor starts by accidently hitting the throttle. It also has a dial to increase and decrease the control surface throws. It is a great feature allowing you to dampen the controls while learning the flight characteristics and then gradually increase the control throws to make it more responsive.
Overall, the Hawksky V2 flies great. It flies very smooth, is stable in the air and looks great in the sky. It flies very well at less than 50% throttle and is easy to turn and control. I really like this plane a lot. I only started flying a few months ago so I don’t have a lot of experience yet. My first plane was a smaller, lighter three channel pusher. No problem hand launching that one. The Hawksky V2 I purchased a couple of months ago was a great choice. I haven’t tried any aerobatics yet. Still gaining confidence with the HawkSky and maintaining smooth controlled flight. The only negatives being the difficulty with hand launching with no wind and small wheels/long landing gear unless you have a smooth runway for takeoff and don’t have to land in grass. Minor issues easily overcome if you have a runway surface.
The HawkSky V2 RTF was my first purchase from Grayson and I was pleased with delivery and support when I had a question.

I buy from you as much as I can....a lot to do with....you using "Jeff" to show us how to build the RC model. He is so gentle and perfect in his instruction. He should have been a public school teacher (as I am)...because he would have captivated the students with his ability to teach. :0) (Posted on 1/30/2018)

Great Plane Review by David M Muench

Got the plane for my son for Christmas. I had a problem with the radio that came with the plane. Contacted Grayson and they sent a new radio and necessary servo. We are very pleased with the plane. The accompanying video that Grayson put together for this plane is helpful in the construction phase. NOt that there is much to build with it but they were helpful in what did need done.

I want to give a 4.5 star Review by DAYE ZHANG
Rating
everything arrived perfect. the assembly process is smooth until the propeller. it supposed to be that you can put the propeller and then tighten it up by the provided nut and then cover it up with the white cover. However, there is a pre-installed nut which where thing else go against. but this pre installed nut's position is too far away from the motor, causing a trouble to install the other nut. because of pre installed nut, there is no room to install the other nut. I have to manually moving that nut toward to the motor and it is very very hard to turn that nut. anyway, i managed to put the plane together. I would assume it is a small QC failure, unless it is designed to let the customer adjust its position. the glue(clear one) provided to attach the cockpit and the cover does not work very well with foam, it actually burns the foam and evaporate very bad smell gas that cause my eyes to tear, so that I have to use the glue(yellow) provided for the body parts to attach the cockpit and its cover.

The Dynam Hawksky V2 Review by JOSEPH F CAPALONG
Rating
I have many planes and drones. This easy to build and fly mid propeller plane flys like a dream and goes like a rocket. The only con I have is that upon "hand" launching, you have to give it elevator to get it up initially. After that it flies like a dream once you get enough airspeed. A+ (Posted on 7/11/2017)

Do it all Airplane Review by Ken
Rating
I have two of these and I think the Hawksky is probably one of the best all around planes out there. It can be a trainer, a sport airplane, a quick warm liner glider or a tradition thermal riding glider. I purchased the RTF for a friend in the Virgin Islands, shipped it there and then assembled and flew it myself (I was there on visiting). I wanted to try the RTF version to see how the Transmitter performed. It was easy to set up and fly. Just turn on the transmitter and then plug in the battery and it binds within a few seconds. The Transmitter is pretty good for a basic unit. Trims and expo are manually operated. I did not experience any problems with range and the transmitter feels good in your hands. You can only change travel range on every channel at once. The lowest setting is best for beginners and training. The full travel setting was enough to be fun for the more experienced flyer. The only negative that I found was that the elevator is a little sensitive with the travel set to full. The included battery performed well, delivering 10 to 15 minute flight times with mixed flying. Judicious use of the throttle and a thermal or two will give you 20 minute plus flight times. Great Airplane at a good price. (Posted on 2/23/2017)
