Brodak Tomahawk
« on: March 18, 2024, 08:37:05 AM »
Finally finished this model - happy to get it off my board.  I am hoping to fly it this summer. It weighs 28.5 oz with the heavy wheels and spinner. Does anyone have any experience with this model, I built it from a Brodak kit. I used a lot of tips I learned from Sparky online.

Personally I'd remove most, if not all, of that right rudder.. It will cause yaw, which will slow the model down, not in a good way..  H^^

It's an OS .25 FP - on the Rudder offset, I will give it a few test flights, but I agree, I may have to reduce the offset (and unfortunately cut into the finish - ughhh)

As I have had both versions of the Tomahawk, don't sweat the rudder off set.  It will do the pattern.  May not win NATS  but is a good plane.  In fact I have both kits of the Tomahawk that I was going to build and power with OS LA 25's.  But things happen. D>K

 Looks great Fred, just like on the Brodak box! Should be a great combo with the FP-25, have fun!  y1
