Great Planes Escapade ARF

Model Airplane News - RC Airplane News | Great Planes Escapade ARF

The Escapade has something for every pilot, but they all see something just a little bit different. It looks like a great second plane for the ambitious newcomer, easy-flying fun to the experienced pro and a solid choice for electric and glow modelers alike. But no matter how you see it, it’s easy to see that the Escapade is a versatility star, and another big addition to the Great Planes line-up of fast-building, quality-first ARFs.

Ready for first flights in just 4-6 hours!

  1. Got one! Can’t wait to build and fly. One thing, though. My airfield is grass, and my fellow pilots are advising not to put the pants on because grass could get caught in there.
