Default The Hawksky lives again

So I had an old Hawksky laying around that I beat the snot out of about five years ago. I mean it has the look only a mother could love. I just never got around to throwing it away for some reason. It's embarrassing to say how it got to be in such bad shape (not going there) I ordered a Tactic 624 receiver for it in the off chance It still worked. I hooked everything up, reversed the rudder, elevator and the throttle. Holy the pitiful looking thing fired right up!!! I never would have thought any of it still worked.

What was I thinking?

Duct taped nose, fuse broke clean through in front of the rudder and a big crack under the battery hatch. I will check the CG and see how it flys. It's had a rough life.

Flew my beat up Hawksky today and man did I make it nose heavy after repairs were made. I thought I had the CG correct...wrong. All in all it still flew well after all the damage I did to it years ago. It's still a fun airplane to goof around with.
