Excellent flyer! The motor was slightly out of balance so I pulled the magnet drum and balanced it on a prop balancer. Also balanced the prop. Beyond 50', it is now so quiet that you have no clue where the Eagle is if you take your eyes off it for a second. I sure wish Cox sold extra battery packs for it, but they don't. I wiped on a seal coat of a shiney acrylic floor polish (smells good). The wheels are too small for grass fields. Landings and take-offs on hard smooth areas are very good. It has a good stable hand launch if you use about 2/3s throttle. The aileron control wire joiner is fragile, so be careful during assembley. I do use a simple rigging line to stiffen the wings. You may need a little more tape to hold the canopy on. All this is tweaking that I enjoy when it has the results like this good looking, good flying airplane.

Is it 'receiver ready' or 'radio ready'? Are the servos included?

4-channel radio control system
with 3 micro servos and approximately 17 oz in torque, each.
Must be purchased separately.

Power System:
110-Watt Brushless outrunner motor installed.
18-amp sensorless electronic speed control with BEC installed.

Battery System:
3S, 11.1 volt, 1800mAh LiPo Battery included.
Charger needs to be purchased separately.
