The Sonny looks great that's a job well done.

Jason , your welcome and thank you for building the RedEagle.

You did a great job it's a beauty.

Set the CG on 90mm the RedEagle will fly at its best.

Cheers, Ton

Geoff, thanks for the update the Sonny is looking great.

For building the wing don't forget to make the Dihedral bigger than as per plan.

Geoff , great that the boom is straight and Max thanks for the advice.

Advised RBCkits to enlarge the dihedral to 80mm on both sites and that should be enough.

Its measured kind off from my proto Sonny, but that's kind off difficult to measure because the mainspar sets round because of the covering.

So my wing was set to 52mm both sites, but went on going to 80-90mm because of the covering bend.

Maybe the 104mm would be a little much, but the turn's will than be even smaller for very narrow thermals.

Iam sure that will work as good as with the insert , don't forget to enlarge the dihedral by 2x as mentioned on the drawing.

Please post some pics of your build.

Thanks for the pics Geoff the Sonny is looking great.

Sorry to see the tail is not strait will you try to correct that, or will you leave it like this.

You could submerge it in water and straiten it on the board and let it dry for a few days.


04/05/2018 21:22:45

Would love to see some pics of your build.

For the wing best is to make the dihedral twice as much as on the plan.

Thats great and look forward to see some pics of your RES-Eagle.

Hi Steve, made some more pics hoping this will make it more clear.

Hi Warren,

For as far I can see is it a pulltruded tube because I don't see a woven structure.

And yes it could be that a woven tube could be the better option.


12/03/2018 22:29:17

To be honest not by me, I like it the way it is.

But yes I think RBC is planning on making also an E-version.


08/03/2018 21:38:14

You can modify anything to make it fit, but why should you do that.

Build them both and enjoy them both, that's the best option.

Or use the RedEagle as a tow plane for the RES-Eagle that's even more fun.

Great to know the kit has arrived and looking forward to many build pics.

Was thinking about the same idea for using on a model.

Was thinking about gluing a magnet in the rib at one side and the other side a metal ring as you mention also in a rib.

Although the tape is not a bad and easy option because I only use a small piece at the leading edge.

Hi Steve,

The kit is ready at RBCkits smiley
