The Eaglet turned out so well that I might start looking for a good deal on an early Eagle 63 or an Eagle 2 kit and do the same balsa/electric mods I did to the Eaglet. The Tiger or Tiger 2 could be an option as well. I built several Goldberg kits back in the 80's and 90's and loved them all.

I wasn't going to respond until I read the above.

I have built all the birds you mention with balsa and all were terrific. the eagle balsa built was a real floater. I have a tiger and eagle in my shop today, It seems they lend themselves well to modification, I have built many for myself my son and friends.......................Enjoy

Thinking of modding mine as it needs all new electronics anyway. Curious as to what did you do for a motor mount.

You must be about my age. The Eaglet was my first solo build as well. I have fond memories flying it non stop in the summer of 1982. Mine had an OS 25. Flew great. It would be fun to fly another one. Nice job on yours

The Eaglets are great. It was my second build and first powered plane . Had an os 20 which gave it plenty of power . Started with a 3 channel. Then built another wing with ailerons. Learned about everything with the Eaglet.
