The Escapade MX combines classic sport engineering with the creature comforts you’ve come to expect from Great Planes. It builds fast, and it flies even faster. It uses commonplace components, and the trim scheme is as eye-catching as it is unique. Throw in the option to choose between glow and electric power, and you have a sport plane that’s a break from the everyday!
Expect spectacular sport performance, whether you drop in glow or electric power. Included mounts simplify installation of either option.
A convenient magnetic hatch provides easy access to onboard gear.
To save time, the tail surfaces bolt-on and align automatically. The control horns even come pre-installed and pre-aligned!
The two-piece wing adds to the convenience. The wing panels assemble onto a joiner tube, simplifying building and transport.
Aluminum landing gear and fiberglass wheel pants complement the Escapade MX’s built-up wood construction and colorful trim scheme.
A factory-applied MonoKote trim scheme reduces assembly time while adding eye-catching looks.
