Default Joe bridi great escape

Hi folks,
I am ready to start building a Great Escape but somehow I misplaced the plans. Can anyone guide to a set of workable plans.
Thanks

If you bought if from Blue Jay Models maybe they can sell you a set of plans.

I just recently finished my Escape from an old Bridi Kit. I love how it flies!

Hello,
I do have the Great Planes, but it came out on the "heavy"side. I have the OS RF with pump, and I'm a little afraid to fly it, due to the weight.Can you tell me the weight of your airplane? I do have spring air retracts, too.

Thank you
Gus

Hi,
Unfortunatly I just sold the airplane kit so I can't give you an answer ,but I would say if you are in the 7 to 8 lb range it will fly well. Any heavier than that it will fly but it may be a bit sensitive on controls and want to stall.

Back in the day it wasn't uncommon for these to come in around 10lbs.

Go fly and enjoy!
