This is not your average airplane. The E-Aero Eagle EPP Kit is a detailed model that even fools real hawks! (See the story below). The using two servos to
control the tail feathers, the Eagle catches thermals and glides on and on. Made of durable EPP foam, this kit has reinforcements everywhere. Do not be
fooled by cheaper imitators. The wings are built up and formed for increased strength. There is plenty of room for your radio gear inside the body of the
All foam pieces - black / white / yellow color scheme prepainted
Notes from test flight:
When we took the Eagle out for flying, we had a great summer day. After making a few low passes, the Eagle caught a thermal and rose several hundred feet.
With the motor off, it floated high circling over the field. After a few minutes, a hawk appeared.
Then two more appeared. The hawks were circling around

Then all of a sudden one of the hawks raised its wingtips, lowered its talons, and dove towards
Just before the Hawk got closed enough to strike, we turned on the motor to avoid the collision. The sudden whirl of the motor seemed to scare
the hawk away. Thanks to Dennis Sutton for these great pictures!

Here is some video we shot of the Eagle. This shoot was done near an airport so we could not fly high enough to play with the hawks!
