Great Planes Escapade has something for every pilot, but they all see something just a little bit different. It looks like a great second plane for the ambitious newcomer, easy-flying fun to the experienced pro and a solid choice for electric and glow modelers alike. But no matter how you see it, it's easy to see that the Escapade is a versatility star, and another big addition to the Great Planes line-up of fast-building, quality-first ARFs. Ready for first flights in just 4-6 hours!
