VA Models Christen Eagle


Have ventured into EPP planes a bit. This was fun build. Used Powerup 480plus 1100kv motor, 30A Skypower esc, 3 Towerpro servos, 10x4.7 APC prop. Medium CA and Foam Tac for build. I put tail servos in rear but if I were doing it again, I would put them up towards front of fuse because it is tail heavy with anything other than 3s 2200's. Flies great. Capable of 3D if I was only better at it. Still need to work on thrust angles. I like the plane and now I finally have a Christen Eagle. 36"wingspan. Applied carbon slat to bottom wing and recessed 2 pieces of carbon rod in both interplane struts. This was basically the only mods.
