Airshow Favorite is a Fast-Assembling ARF

The Great Planes® Christen Eagle is a .46–72/EP Biplane ARF that will give pilots the same adrenaline-charged aerobatics as the original experimental homebuilt, with all the ease of assembly for which Great Planes is known. This ARF version arrives with every colorful “feather” in place, ready to snap, tumble or rocket straight up at a moment’s notice. Check it out:

  • The painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants help add signature style and lines with minimum work, and landing gear fairings contribute additional scale detail
  • Factory-installed painted pilot figure and bubble canopy can be quickly removed for easy access to radio gear and battery packs
  • Great with glow or electric power—the Christen Eagle performs well on a .46 but can be “souped up” with a .55, “powered up” with a 4-stroke or “amped up” with a brushless outrunner motor
  • Prebuilt sections cut assembly time to a matter of hours
  • Captures the trademark “Eagle” trim scheme in bright MonoKote® colors
  • Unique interplane struts do away with clumsy brackets, tiny screws and wasted time.
