Default RE: Great Planes Escapade .40 ARF

Yeah, it has caught my eye as well. It has good looks as well a price that is really attractive. Currently Tower is showing it at 100 bucks. Nice looking sport plane 40 size for a 100 bucks. Anyone figure out the airfoil shape yet? An Avistar semi-symetrical airfoil would be just fine. I loved my Avistar. In fact I had an Avistar with a TT GP-42 and just loved the combination. I thought it had adequate power and would be tempted to install a GP-42 in this. For me the Avistar was plenty of fun with that engine, even in windy conditions. The Escapade looks like it is well built, and for the price, I'm hard to say that I could build anything better. Going to keep an eye on this one. I need something more attractive with better performance than the SPAD Debonair that I'm flying.
