Default EFlite Aeronca Champ Flight Characterists

I am considering purchasing a New EFlite Aeronca Champ. It is fully completed with all servos and ready to fly. I am a proficient pilot and and in the intermediate stage to advanced. Id like some inputs on how it flys and and plus and minus information. It looks like a great flying airplane. Thanks for any information.

Chris

Hi Chris,
Welcome to the forum.
You really can't go far wrong with a plane like the Cub. You should find it thoroughly reliable - whoevers model it is!

Nice try - but no cigar!

Default Aeronca Champ

The airplane is a Aeronca Champ made by EFlite. It has the recommended setup as EFlite recommends. Its not a Cub but similar with the highwing. It should fly ok. I just read some reviews about it and would like some positive information about the landing gear and how it fly from a grass runway. Thanks.

Chris

Champ, Cub, Cessna, all quite similar with the Cub probably the most docile and the Champ and Cessna pretty much on a par, though avoid the heavier ones. Wing loading makes a big difference to the way a model flies. Too heavy and any of them can start to get nasty.
For that reason I normally fly on the smaller power systems - but I build all my own very light anyway. Having said that you need a little power in hand 'just in case'.
But there must be threads on all the available ARFs somewhere on the forum.
Have you tried the 'search' function at top right of the window?

Nice try - but no cigar!

Hello, I found this review and everyones comments very helpful regarding the e-flite Champ 15e. I would like everyone to know that Lazer Cut Landing Gear Strut Braces are now available on-line for order. These parts are designed to beef-up the Landing Gear support inside the fuselage. They can be seen at a Websight called: icbimproducts.com I have fitted them into my Champ model and they fit perfectly. Thanking everyone for the useful information!
