The Eagle 63 was a great flier, congratulations on your score!
One thing to bear in mind, though, is that the elevator is a tiny strip and much too small. If you substantially increase it's chord, it'll fly even better!

Any way to tell how old it is by any markings? On one of the instruction sheets it said 1969. I thought this was made in the 80's.

older because it is an "Eagle" there was an Eagle II later both great. Can't remember dates but early 80s back.
Nice Find!

I remember the Eagle series very well> I built many of them for a local hobby shop.
even back then there were pilots who preferred to buy ready built rather than build their own and I loved to build.
The RTF and ARF market exploded and foam became the material of choice and the demand for my services was no longer in demand
That changes nothing as to how well the eagles flew. As far as I am concerned no better trainer was ever available.

Good Luck
