HobbyKing™ Old Eagle has been built a easy to fly, super fun parkflyer model. The light weight airframe features a high set pusher propeller configuration great for learning to fly, or use as a FPV plane using micro sized equipment! The airframe is a unique hybrid of a super light weight plywood underlying structure with the skin of the airframe being of thin EPP foam sheet.
In addition to the unique hybrid construction, the HobbyKing™ Old Eagle also has a great pre-painted high visibility color scheme. This means it looks good and is easy to orient during your first flights. In addition to the Old Eagle being a durable airframe, the wing is held on with a few rubberbands which allows the wing to shift in a crash thereby reducing damage. The supplied hardware is excellent and this model offers an easy and quick build due to large amount of pre-fabrication. Access your receiver or lipo battery through a small flap of foam held closed with just a spot of velcro. The pusher propeller design further reduces chance of motor damage should you nose it in.
The very attractive HobbyKing™ Old Eagle offers tame flight characteristics for the pilot looking to learn to fly, or just wants a relaxing model for those lazy day flight sessions. This EPP trainer is the perfect all round model for the beginner to experienced pilot as it looks good, flys great, is practical and doesn't cost the earth, you couldn't ask for more!

quick build nice plane for the 25.00 on saleThis is a great little plane. perfect for flying around a small ball park. The build went together fairly easily and the wing is just beautifully built.
The CG is about 1cm behind where it is in the instructions.
If you want to use a 6 inch propeller you need to cut out a portion of the foam on the rear section.
Getting the motor installed is very tricky, i had to cut away some foam to get my screw driver in.
I feel all the internal wooden conections are just press fit. if you've got some thin CA it will help durability. it'll fly fine without though
I tried to build it light and it was still about 30g heavier than the heavy end of the weight restriction in the instructions, and thats without landing gear. you might have better luck
