Ohh a chance to have my very own Desert Hawk!!

I have always wondered why there was a rush to copy the Raven when everyone that operates the Desert Hawk prefers it.

I understand its a requirement to fly them... APC propeller on the back futaba servos inside I wonder how the big contractors are going to justify cost down the road.

Wow, I like this a lot!  Nice and simple, yet clean airframe.  Would it fit a 4S 5000?  And can it take a downward facing camera for mapping?

Give the fuselarge a thin layer of glassfibre and kevlar + Epoxy you got your self a pretty strong platform with many belly landings.

When we talk mil.spec it's totally another world, but if a 1500 $ hobby uav can fly 20 km waypoint missions with videolink + datalink. I'm sure the big boys will have to rethink the business.

The foam Desert Hawk is it still operational?
