After a dozen flights and a dozen crashes, the Wild Hawk had more hot glue in the fuselage than it did Styrofoam. Trashed the plane, saved the motor and electronics and recycled it into a swamp buggy for more fun. This link is one of the first runs after doing a hull mod and fiting up a bigger prop. Still need to adjust CG's to get it to flatten out and plane a little. Put 150 hours into hand making every piece from scratch. Most fun 150 hours I've had in years. One of the grandkids will end up with this someday. Hope they can stilll get batteries for it. Enjoy the vid.
