Bonsoir MrGloriousfall

Félicitation pour ce superbe aigle!!

Je t'en remercie mille fois, mon fiston de 5 ans voulait que je lui fasse un oiseau mais je désespérais d'en trouvé un et je tombe pas hasard sur ton post.

Je m'y colle dés ce soir, tu à fait un heureux la tu sais ??

Il regarde en boucle tes vidéos

Désolé de ne pas écrire en anglais mais ce ne serait pas compréhensible.

Nico, si tu aurais des détails a me souligner a propos de cette construction, pourrait tu me le faire savoir par mp? Je ne voudrais pas gêner en écrivant en français.

Encore un grand merci pour mon fiston et pour le papa qui va ce régaler aussi.

Will it be fun if I modify this to fly using an EDF?

Also what if we use a single servo for the tail like the ones in ornithopters?

well... hi mrexcel!

an EDF, why not... i never used an EDF, so if u use to, i m curious to see how it would fly!
concerning a single servo , would you use it as rudder or elevator control ?

let us know if u try those kind of stuff!

new video!

Eagle at 200%

I just built and flew and Eagle which spans 10 feet 6 inches. It weighs 5.5 pounds. The first flight the CG was off and I had to stop the porpoising by a 3d landing(lol) Wheeew) The second time I corrected the CG and it flew like a champ no trim or major adjustments. I can fly level at 1/4 throttle and will climb at half throttle. I will post a video and pics soon. I did paint it like a Condor since the wings are the same span.

Here's my contribution to the Eagle. I am thinking if i should incorporate Ailerons to the wings. My wings have a very minimal dihedral and i think Ailerons should work best.
