Perfection .. yes .. this is the correct word.. an extraordinary level of quality in each single detail .. a great attention to fine details is what makes all the difference .. I'm sure there are precious gems under the hood of his Robirds

A level of quality you won't see in a mass produced model .. very fine craftsmanship

Flying like that is what I always want to look up to while enjoying the sky's. I really wish someone would make a bird like that but scale....in epp.

Very nice video Robert...

Mr. Sam, this is very interesting. You use a push prop...and still the model is stable. Do you have more information about that? Very nice flight!

Thanks Mr.Sam. What system you use as a pusher? What I mean is, is the motor located at the tail? Or is the motor in the fuse and you have a long adapter on it extending out the tail?

Thanks! Yeah I know, too many questions. But I'm putting together the EPP eagle my brother let me have,and I was looking to do something a little different to one this time. I'm kinda tired of busting my motors up on count of it being up front. If you would like to share with us your techniques, it would be great...

Hello G-LO
It's a 480 BL motor with a 5mm CF tube attached as shaft to drive a 7" folding
prop system.
the motor is located at CG with a 40A ESC,a good slope plane if motor moved
have a nice day
Sam
