a new British kit! - 26/6/09
We're always very pleased to bring new British kits to wider attention here at RCM&E and Modelflying.co.uk so say hello to Sparrowhawk a new kit from a new British manufacturer!
Sparrowhawk is a traditional build, four-channel hotliner style electric sport model (can be converted to i.c.) designed for an inexpensive electric set-up such as a Tornado 480BM-2100 brushless motor, a 40 amp ESC and a 2200mAh 3S Li-Po battery.
Produced by John Newton at The Skies The Limit Designs in Nottinghamshire, the 49" span model is described as being blisteringly fast or safely slow and fully aerobatic too. The interlocking laser-cut kit is quick and easy to assemble supported by illustrated instructions. Expect an all-up weight of around 920g.
Sparrowhawk is £46.50 plus £5.50 P&P. You can purchase via e-bay, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 01773 770960. John can only acccept cards through e-bay (Paypal) but will accept postal orders or cheques for people wishing to order direct.
