I think the problem with the Escapade is high wing loading, something like 24 oz/sq.ft. That takes a fair amount of power to pull around. Mine flew great with an OS .40LA, though, which isn't the strongest engine of it's size. In retrospect, I kinda wish I had replaced the Escapade as it was really fun to fly and really well built for the money. I ended up with a Pulse XT 40, which also flies well and has lower loading (20-21 oz/sq.ft), but doesn't fly the best with the .40LA., so I had to buy a .46AX for it.

Re: What's left of my Escapade...

i probably woulda been alright had i had more room.....my flying area is tight quarters.....strip is good......but just not much room to manuever. i fly a piper pawnee here.....it does good. the escapade was faster than the reviews i read....i wouldnt want to slow it down much landing.....tippy tippy we go.
i overpowered to begin with which is almost a must in electrics. maybe this spring...i will see if i can really do some major damage to it.....
