Designed for 30-35 cc gasoline and electric power, the Escapade MX is a sport pilot's dream come true. Not only does it handle low-speed maneuvers and high-speed aerobatics with equal authority, its low parts count and self-aligning tail surfaces help keep assembly time to a minimum.
Compatible with 63-62-250kV brushless motors like the RimFire 1.60, the Escapade MX executes snap rolls, stall turns, inverted flight and every move in between. A high-visibility MonoKote trim scheme, painted fiberglass parts and prehinged control surfaces maximize convenience — while minimizing work!
Exciting aerobatics with gasoline or brushless electric power.
Low parts count for fast, straightforward assembly.
Two-piece wing simplifies construction and transport.
