The model has been given a facelift with a stronger construction that not only makes it more crash resistant, but also looks better. The body is more streamlined and the black painted cabin has been replaced with a clear version complete with scale pilot. Like the original Hawksky this plane is aimed at beginners to intermediates. The rear facing prop design makes it more forgiving in a crash and the glider style makes it easier to fly, but the brushless setup gives lots of power and it's a full 4ch model capable of performing aerobatic flight so when you're ready for the next step, so is the plane.

The Dynam HawkSky V2 is constructed from durable but light weight EPO foam. It only requires a small amount of assembly then it is ready-to-fly within minutes. The power comes from a KV1900 brushless motor which will get you in the airwith little effort. It features an impressive 1370mm wing span, brushless 30A ESC, brushless motor, equating in a fantastic combination of power and control.

Great plane in the air
I have held back reviewing this plane until I got some flight time on it. I first bought the HawkSky V2 RTF from another supplier and then a PNP version from Bitgo. 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. I would have given 5 stars if I was able to hand launch. 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 Bitgo Hobby 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 PNP was my first Bitgo purchase and I was pleased with delivery and support when I had a question.
