Like the hot rod, the Christen Eagle is an all-American creation. Self-made millionaire Frank Christensen designed it as an unlimited-class aerobat that pilots could build at home. It was an immediate hit with pilots and air show crowds — and this ARF promises to be just as popular. It's designed to deliver the same adrenaline-charged aerobatics as the original, as well as the amazing assembly ease Great Planes is famous for!
