Like the hot rod, the Christen Eagle is a true blue all-American creation. Self-made millionaire Frank Christensen designed it as an unlimited-class aerobat that pilots could build at home. The Christen Eagle was an immediate hit with pilots and air show crowds and this ARF from Great Planes 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!
