The Eagle 1 has been designed as a smooth, thermal soaring glider that will fit into the car with ease. We wanted something that could get up to height nice and quickly, so a high power brushless motor and folding prop are fitted. Once airborne the Eagle 1 will sniff out the lightest of lift and by applying a small amount of flap you can rise to lofty heights with no power required. It’s not all about going up though, as applying full flaps will virtually handbrake the Eagle 1 in mid-air, meaning descending is both safe and easy.
With a massive two metre wingspan, we had to split the wing into two pieces, so a strong spar and reinforced mounting system are used to hold everything together in flight and still allow this huge model to fit into the average car easily.
With 5 channels and plenty of power, the Eagle 1 makes a great aerobat and rolls and loops are easy to perform. All the servos (6), brushless motor and ESC are pre-installed, so you can purchase your Eagle 1 in the morning and be flying in the afternoon, just remember to take your deck chair to the field, you could be up there for some time!
