Seagull Eagle Diamond D




Airplane designer Richard VanGrunsven has dominated

the homebuilt airplane hobby for the past 40+ years. His

series of all-alluminum low-wing “RV” airplanes provide

pilots with the level of flight performance and good looks

that they want.

Since 1973 Van’s Aircraft has sold over 18,000 kits and

plans, with over 8,000 airplanes completed and and flying

in 45 countries. In the U.S. alone the number of RVs

completed each year exceeds the combined production of all

commercial general aviation companies. The RV-8 is Van’s

latest design that features tandem centerline seating, for those

fighter pilot types who like to sit in the middle. Like all RVs,

the RV-8 climbs well, lands slow, and goes fast.

Seagull Models has made a 20cc size RV-8 that inherits all

of the great flying qualities of the full-scale airplane. Responsive,

agile, and capable of all the basic aerobatic maneuvers. The

airframe is conventionally built using balsa and plywood,

with a well engineered laser-cut design that allows the airplane

to be kept light. The UltraCote® covering, plus beautifully

molded and painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants add to its

sleek look.

A wonderful airplane for everyday sport aerobatic flying.
