A pilot may own many planes, but there's always one that stands out as the all-time favorite. And that's what the Escapade was meant to be. Any pilot who's mastered a trainer can fly it with confidence -- and any pilot who's flown it once will want to fly it again. Easy handling and aerobatic performance are two good reasons. Assembly ease and incredible value -- and mounts for both glow and electric power -- make it a hands-down choice now and a take-along favorite anytime.

  • Assembles in just 4-6 hours -- and excels with 2-stroke, 4-stroke or brushless power!
  • Time-savers include prehinged control surfaces, an assembled fuel tank and bolt-on wing and tail surfaces, landing gear and wheel pants.
  • All control surfaces are prehinged.

  • Ailerons can be set up for single-servo simplicity or dual-servo authority with no modification.
  • Built-up airframe offers fast, bolt-together assembly and a striking MonoKote trim scheme.
  • Other performance and appearance pluses: painted fiberglass wheel pants; a painted pilot bust; aluminum landing gear; easy-access LiPo battery hatch; steerable tailwheel assembly; and easy-to-install mounts for glow engines and brushless motors.



Control surfaces
The two-piece wing assembles quickly.
All control surfaces are prehinged! The ailerons can be set up for one- or two-servo operation, without modifications.   The two-piece wing assembles quickly, providing accurate alignment automatically.

Bolt-on tail surfaces
Fiberglass wheel pants
Bolt-on tail surfaces drastically cut assembly time!   The fiberglass wheel pants are factory-painted to match the MonoKote trim scheme.

Removing the factory-built battery "hatch" also gives you easy access to onboard gear.
The Escapade performs well with glow or electric power, and either power option installs with virtually "foolproof" ease. Included mounts are drilled to make many installations drop-in simple.   Removing the factory-built battery "hatch" also gives you easy access to onboard gear. Magnets in the hatch and fuselage provide a strong bond and a simple way to reattach the hatch after use.

All control surfaces are prehinged!
Don with Escapade
The Escapade is covered in a one-of-a-kind MonoKote trim scheme — and complemented by painted wheel pants.  

"No matter how many planes you own, there's always one that stands out as your all-time favorite to fly. We designed the Escapade to be that plane, and made it an ARF so more pilots can enjoy it!"
