170 Sparrow Hawk


Another great design from Ben Newman, the Sparrow Hawk is a 170mm sized  frame designed to use up to 4″ props and folds up very compact, for easy transport.  The sparrow hawk features a blend of Polycarbonate and Carbon fiber Birch core frame parts to offer a unique look while balancing durability and performance.

A solid 1 piece version of the Sparrow hawk is also under development.

Sparrow Hawk boom arms are currently designed to mount (but not limited to) the recommended Turnigy A1309 or NTM 1312 sized motors.  Please visit this RC groups thread for more information on recommended configurations for this frame. Custom Mounting configurations are available upon request.

Sparrow hawk folding main frame plates are manufactured from 1/8″ thick Polycarbonate material, bottom frame and top plates are from 1/16″ Carbon fiber Birch core material and boom arms are from 1/8″ thick Carbon Fiber Birch Core material.

Sparrow Hawk folding frame weight with included hardware: Approximately 34.2 grams
Frame Notes:
Frame Size: Refers to approximate distance diagonally between motor centers when completely unfolded.

Carbon fiber Birch core material parts are supplied with a gloss surface on 1 side and a textured finish on the other.  Either side may be used as the top surface.  Since the core of this material is birch plywood the edges of the profiles are of a wood color. This can be easily colored as desired with a permanent marker.

Polycarbonate parts are supplied clear in color with a smooth surface on each face.  Although slightly heavier and less rigid than the Carbon Fiber / Birch core frames, the flexibility of Polycarbonate leads to higher durability.
