Coated Cox Christen Eagle with Varathane

Posted by on August 13, 2008

The Cox Christen Eagle was very easy to put together two nights ago with the engine and most of the control hardware already mounted. The only thing I really had to do was to install the 3 servos. I’ve read on a post that it’s suggested to put 2 servors in for the ailerons for better performance (and flaperon or spoileron capability too), but this was after I had everything put together. One thing that confused me for a while was the screw to insert into the top wing to connect to the cabane strut. The hole on top of the wing was covered with a decal so I didn’t see it at first. Other than that, it was so very easy compared to my other recent builds.

This morning, I covered the foam areas of the plane with Varathane Diamond Polyurethane which gave the plane a nice glossy finish. I think I’ll see how one coat works out before I add more coats.
