Default Eflite Staggerwing bipe

I am considering a E-Flite Staggerwing Biplane. I have already looked on ebay and didn't find one. anybody got any ideas? I realize that it may be out of production, but what the heck I have always liked the way it looks. And I am in a position to maybe purchase one.

Check rcgroups classifieds. Probably your best bet.

Been looking around the old webs, come across one put out by FMS, a little pricey, although several other planes have caught my eye, as in the Stinson Reliant SR10. I've always like the looks of the wings and also there is an Wildcat,WWII, avalibile. Might just have to pull the trigger on one of them.

I'm a bit late to the thread, but I've been really happy with my 1100mm (43.5") Roc Hobby Waco bipe.

Mclarkson I believe that is one I have also been looking for. If I'm not mistaken that looks just like the one Hobby Lobby International offered several years ago. Thanks for the picture. I want to thank all of you for your input to my quest. Believe it or not just looking for the Staggerwing has already prompted me to start, know haven't even got started good on the Stik model I had started, but I come across some plans for a c/l model of a Wildcat, Hmmm, they are using electric for control line models too now days.

That one has caught my eye, as we have a white / rest trim version flying in the morning when I get to work - usually in the pattern at KSDL.
My office is at the SW end of the runway. She sounds so nice and flies so lazy it is very nostalgic.

Probaly will order the Staggerwing next week due to all the snow in our area. However just on a whim I looked on Amazon and there it was a E-flite Staggerwing! Only slightly higher than the Roc Hobby one, decisions, decisions, decisions... which one to get?

Well I pulled the trigger on the E-Flite Staggerwing Bipe I discovered on Amazon today, and hopefully it will be here by the weekend. I can probally get a motor at the lhs and maybe a esc. Where might I find a set of retracts for this model. Will a pair of servoless retracts fit this model. Thanks again for the help.

hiya mate, I don't think they had electric gear thin enough when they made these, that's why the air gear was installed. I reckon you could make a set fit though with a small amount of foam removal. good luck, it's a pretty little kite, I have an old wattage staggerwing and love it.

Thanks for the tip. I checked the lhs price on the e-flite motor, I like to support it, but headsuphobby has the best. And I relize I already have a 45 amp esc so no need for a new one.
