The Hawk is essentially an advanced development of the smaller YD140-1 prototype, which I designed in April 2011. Because the YD140-1 was outperformed by the Wasp, I chose not to publish an instructable on it. However, after several months of seeing no comparable designs on Instructables, I decided a plane with a mid-mounted wing was needed here. Because I think skids should be included if possible, I reapproached the primary concept of the original prototype with the difference that the new airplane (which became the Hawk) have a longer range and skids. Eventually, after a few calculations, the Hawk was prototyped and found to be a success. After some flight testing, it proved itself worthy of being made in an instructable, and now here it is.
TAA USAF Designation: D154-1
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8 by 10.5 inch graph paper (4 boxes per inch)
Step 2: Begin Construction
After the fuselage is made, take another sheet of paper that is folded in half along the lines of boxes. Mark out 8 by 2 boxes. Then cut it out.
Solid lines indicate places to cut. Dotted lines indicate fold lines.
Note: 1 box = 0.25 inches
