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.
