I just stumbled across this old video we did of a plane my son James designed. Enjoy

Have you ever seen a dragon fly? (2 min 4 sec)

Yeah, I remember that like it was yesterday. That's based on your first epp falcon. It would be nice to if you would start that project over again...but we know you're moving on.

Joel, that was fantastic! How much you charge to make me one!

Very good dihedral, fuse and tail.... Hope to see some close up shots of that bird!

Go Supersize Manned flight




would like to see people Cr*p in their pants when they see this comming


well ether the make the para glider transparent or project it with a projector and a camera to hide the chute with the sky background.
or they can make the wings of the dragon larger to sustain lift

then finish it off with a flamethrower/napalm launcher accessory up the front.

Joel, you and Lee should go in business together. If you have the plans, Lee can cut them for you. It does have a osprey look, but it can be the NEW American Epp Eagle. If you market this, it WILL sell. It'll be a hit!

I just stumbled upon this thread and I was wondering who sells these birds? I found one at Opensurprise.com, it is a EPP Eagle Any others? Also Lee I have three of your wings and love them. I read that you at one point sold these birds, any chance you will be selling them again?
