More information about Great Planes Proud Bird EF1 Racer Sport ARF GPMA1260


This is the Great Planes Proud Bird EF1 Sport Racer ARF Electric Airplane. The Proud Bird EF1 is approved for NMPRA EF1 Class Racing. Designed by respected pylon racer Jim Allen, the Proud Bird EF1 is both a competitive EF1 class race plane AND a great everyday sport plane. It has the look of a speed demon, and backs it up with the capability of 100+ mph (160+ Km/h) speeds when equipped with the recommended racing power system. But it also handles exceptionally well and can perform sport aerobatics.
