It’s both a competitive EF1 class race plane AND a great everyday sport plane! The Proud Bird has the look of a speed demon, and backs it up with the capability of 100+ mph speeds when equipped with the recommended racing power system. But it also handles exceptionally well and will perform sport aerobatics on command. The Proud Bird features a low parts count for fast, easy assembly, with an all-wood, built-up airframe and a fiberglass cowl and wheel pants. It comes with an all-white finish that allows for total trim scheme customization.
WARNING: The Proud Bird requires advanced flying skills and is not suitable for beginning or intermediate pilots. When equipped with the recommended racing power system it reaches speeds over 100 mph (160 km/h), and should only be flown at an approved AMA flying site. Because it can quickly disappear from sight, pilots should remain focused on the plane at all times.
