opinions on the ghost hawk 2

ok so when i saw the ghost hawk i was hugely disappointed cause i total thought it was going to be a cobra rattler. but i find that i can't stop looking at it. i think that it will be an easy custom but what i want to know is what does it all do? how big is it? is it a single piloted plane? is the landing gear contained with on or on the outside?



is anyone else reminded of the mudfighter when they look at it or am i crazy?

It does have a definite mud fighter vibe to it. It's also closer to it in size than to a rattler

Gotta wonder what that long thing sticking our the front is on the lower right side of it near the cockpit

i think it looks like a refueling rod for aerial refueling.

or maybe hasbro thought that jousting was cool and they decided to incorporate it in the movie and the toyline! f#%*ing hasbro idiots

Lol, I don't think you are crazy, but I didn't think of the Mudfightet when I saw it. I like it. It is a 1 seater. I think I heard something about a zip line feature. My only complaint is the missile color, but at least they will be easy to find after I blast Cobra with them from across the room. Probably easier to see/ dodge if you're playing Joes with a friend and they're holding the enemy aircraft too close to their eye.

i have to say i am not looking forward to a zip line feature. but i can't wait to make it a smaller cobra rattler! i think i want to make it black instead of blue or maybe both!

It's a re-tooled Black Dragon made hideous.

It is an incredibly stupid design, from an adult point of view. No way would a thing like that fly without literally pulling itself apart. A plane that size might have two engines - not 4. Too much thrust too far down the wing probably would rip the wings off the fuselage. The v-tail looks cool but it doesn't make much sense aerodynamically. But then again neither do missiles ON TOP of the wing, which further reduces the control surfaces already being taken away from the 4 engines ripping the wings off.

What Hasbro needs to figure out is that kids like what the military uses today - pop-out missiles hidden in the fuselage or a back door revealing a troop carrying capacity that they can jump from. I bet some idiot thought having a refueling pod sticking out would look cool and that kids could imagine it was a gun.

My son and I had a blast playing with my old Razor Blade helicopter the other day so I am indeed looking forward to the zip line feature. I just hope I don't crash it and break it. LOL
