Thread OP

7 ft foam and balsa eagle.

Having seen several EPP eagles, figured I might do a variation on the theme, but bigger and Depron and balsa. Brushless in the nose with a 9"x6" APC. So far it looks like this. The tips have a bottom surface of "Mirralyte" paper-thin birch ply to strengthen the vunerable tip feathers against damage.

Nice work

Looks great Macboffin. Really nice paint work. I've been tempted to come up with something like that after seeing various other birds of prey here on rcgroups.

I attempted a bird like paint job on my last Alula (plus some slightly crazy colour choices).

I see you're in North London. I'm in Highgate. Do you fly at a club or somewhere else?

Thanks for sharing,

Nice, nice, nice!
If you have drawings or sketches I would like to build one too.
Do you think that your model can be used as slope soarer?

I think it would be a good slope soarer, might need some ballast. This one will be about 1 kilo weight, including motor, 3c battery,d/x and four mini servos, and two cameras and a 1.5 gigs vid tx. (I view vid cam down-link via "magic goggles.) 2 metre span, wings plug into body via the extended carbon tube spars, vee tail secured by two 6mm nylon bolts.
Yes, drawings with dimensions no problem, I will post them later.
