Halloa peoples!

sooooo! Another plane then.. I had personally been looking for a medium-size airplane with tricycle (so not a taildragger) landing-gear.. Preferable with a pusher-prop setup (no propellor in the FPV view)..

And! Along came this Esky Eagle 🙂 It even has pretty big wheels so it can take off from gras 🙂

Link to the plane: Esky Eagle 1100mm beginner airplane

First video time then! In this video I'll do a quick unboxing but mostly a build (which won't be flawless :@)



Specifications:
wingspan: 1100mm
length: 871mm
weight: 755 grams all up
material: EPO foam
kit type: PNP
motor: 2306 2250kv brushless
propellor: 6x4 (my guess)
ESC: 30A
servo's: 4x 9 grams
receiver: 4 channel minimum (not supplied)
lipo: 2200mah 3S 20-35C (not supplied)
ailerons: yes

At 6:45 of your maiden video looks like you need some taxi wind inputs ðŸ˜

Keep up the great videos.  I'm interested in this plane after building my first FPV plane with landing gear and seeing how much fun it is.

That is all well & good sir, until you factor in a very bumpy field 😉 

And yes! I flew a tricycle-gear FPV plane a good amount of times last year.. It's fun to allso take-off & land FPV 🙂

Dialing in a little flaperon on takeoff may help with a little more lift ?

That's what I am eager to see
... how the craft feels flying fpv. So many of these smaller planes tend to give you a bumpy looking ride inside the goggles.
Fly like your mad at it.

Et voila.. I used a Runcam micro Eagle + TX200U FPV set to FPV this airplane..

Here is how That worked out 🙂
