The Goshawk's origins began in the mid-1970s, when the US Navy began looking for a single aircraft replacement for both its T-2 and TA-4 jet trainers. The T-45 version of the Goshawk was proposed by British Aerospace (BAE) and McDonnell Douglas (MDC) in 1981 and were awarded with the contract. It first flew in 1988 and became operational in 1991. The T-45 Goshawk is a fully carrier-capable version of the British Aerospace Hawk Mk.60 and was developed as a jet flight trainer for the United States Navy (USN) and United States Marine Corps (USMC).
The Freewing T-45 Goshawk 90 mm Super Scale RC plane is a precise replica of the aircraft from the 80's and 90's. This PNP version includes a powerful 1550kv outrunner motor and 130A ESC, and is designed for the common 6s 5000 mAh Li-Po battery size used in several other Freewing jets. The model is designed for versatility, and can also CG with 8s or 10s power systems, providing pilots with a widely upgradable platform in a high scale fidelity package.
