Howdoiairplane
Hey I'm new here and if this has already been addresses In another post I apologize in advance.
So I bought the hawk sky for my first beginner plane because everyone told me it was good and I saw a lot of rc powers videos about it. I built it in around two hours and then flew it a few days later. On my maiden flight I used the landing gear and it kept turning left. I fixed that but when it took off it would bank to the left. I flew it today and I hand threw it and it did the same the ailerons are trimmed properly so I don't know what to do now. Please help I spent a lot of money on this plane and I really want it to work. Thank you

Torque roll is most likely the problem. The ail need to be trimmed to counter it in flight. Keep the rudder straight if you can, it works out better in flight. Hope this helped and don't give up, this is a very forgiving plane and will treat you good

Don't give up on the plane. It's a really good flyer and being a new pilot you might not know just how to trim it out for smooth flight. Did you buy the ready-to-fly version that came with a transmitter? If so, that might be part of the problem. I bought the RTF version and after a few weeks of bad flying I got a new computer transmitter/receiver (Turnigy 9x) and suddenly the plane was smooth as silk. Get the plane up high (3 mistakes high) and adjust your trims so the plane flies straight and level. Watch this video.

I loved this plane and flew it until I wore it out. Having the control surfaces level with the wing might not be the answer. Sometimes there is a warp in the wing, tail or fuselage that you can't see but still need to compensate for. Good luck and don't give up.
