BALSA USA  KIT No 449 1/4 EAA BIPLANE

The full scale EAA Biplane was designed in the middles sixties by Paul Poberezny and Stan Dizik in cooperation with the Experimental Aircraft Association. It was envisioned to be easily constructed home built that the average person could build without special tools and flew great. The design continues to be very popular today and hundreds of them have been built all over the world. Balsa USA's 1/4 scale model is a faithful rendition of this aircraft.  

The 1/4 scale EAA Biplane is fully aerobatic and uses the same semi-symmetrical airfoil used on the full scale aircraft. With over 1000 sq.. inches of wing area with an all up weight of only 8 pounds, our EAA Biplane is a real pussycat in the air. Simple as well as complex aerobatics are easily done, yet the model will slow down to a walk on landing without any tendency to tip stall.

Even though this is a scale model, it is quite easy and straight forward to build. So if you are looking for an excellent first 1/4 scale Bipe at a really good price, the EAA Bipe is for you.
