    I just made my maiden flight on my Eagle 63, and love it. I'm looking to share info with other Eagle Flyers.

    I have mine equipped with an old KB 40 engine. It's a big as my OS60 that I have in my Telemaster. I am proud to say that I did my first gas solo with the Eagle. Been practicing with the Telemaster Senior and an electric Slow Stick. I had 2 successful flights, and the third ended up in the bushes due to the engine quitting just after takeoff. No damage though. Great plane.

    I learned to fly on an Eagle II that I built from the kit. My original engine was an OS FP-40, and although I loved the way it ran I felt the plane really needed a stronger engine so I went with a comparably-priced Fox 40 BB deluxe. Many guys I have talked to have commented that the Eagle really needs a 45, especially if you fly off grass. I found larger wheels also helped in this respect- I ended up with 3 1/4 " and ground handling was excellent. I flew this plane almost 5 years before retiring it.

    I'm just now building my 2nd- this time an ARF. I've converted this one to a tail-dragger and modified the wing for nylon bolt attachment. The engine this time will be a Saito 56 4-cycle. Many of the old-timers I've met have loved this plane enough to have had more than one because they just fly so well.

    Good choice.

    I learned to fly 12 years ago on an Eagle 2 -- I put a Super Tiger .46 on it and it literally flew itself...

    I agree with the slightly larger tires on a grass strip -- thats what i ended up doing with mine and it lasted several years. I only sold it because of a horrible crash on a 1/4 P-51 and a split second decision to sell everything that instant. Now i want another one!

    I put together an Eagle II arf with the intent of making it a float plane.
    Even though I'm an experienced pilot, I enjoy relaxed scale-like flights
    with it. I'm a fan.
