    Hello everybody,

    My Name is Thomas, from the south of Germany.
    Since 2013 I´m working on my CHRISTEN EAGLE ( 100% scale ) and
    also on the Project of the 50% CHRISTEN EAGLE as a Special exclusive Kit we
    decided to do like Frank Christensen did in the 80´s.
    The reason for this Project is: There is no good EAGLE Kit 50% scale, which is
    really looking like the original EAGLE. We did all the construction in CAD 3D
    and the fuselage and tail structure is like the 100% EAGLE welded from tubes.

    We are reporting in a German rc-Network to give a look at the first 4 EAGLES
    we are building to test all the Kit parts we are manufacturing and to prepare the
    Manuals and photos ....

    A lot of RC modeler from US which are interested in the Project and the kit would love to have
    a thread in english language - so we are doing here.

    Sorry about my english - hope ist getting better in the month´s we are reporting here !!!

    We are looking for a US Import Company as well, to send ordered kits in one crate/Container
    to one adress to save Money.
    If there are any ideas, interrests or whishes - please let me know.

    The following Pictures ( sorry for the German words on it ) is the first view into the Kit Project.

    The Pictures from the ready built 50% eagle and the flight Pictures are from the prototype
    which has not the finally shape of the cowling, wheelpants , canopy - we did that with stock
    parts only to do the first flight test.

    Prototype flight Video: ->

    Have fun and Kind regards from the Black-Forest
    in Germany

    That is an incredible achievement in modeling.
