Great Planes Proud Bird EF1 Sport Racer ARF

Race course ready!

Designed by respected pylon racer Jim Allen, the Proud Bird EF1 is both a competitive EF1 class race plane AND a great everyday sport plane. It has the look of a speed demon, and backs it up with the capability of 100+ mph (160+ Km/h) speeds when equipped with the recommended racing power system. But it also handles exceptionally well and can perform sport aerobatics.

  • All-wood, built-up airframe with fiberglass cowl and wheel pants
  • Low parts count for fast, easy assembly
  • All-white finish allows for total trim scheme customization

    WARNING: The Proud Bird requires advanced flying skills and is not suitable for beginning or intermediate pilots. It reaches speeds over 100 mph (160 km/h) when equipped with the recommended racing power system, 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.
