What is like the Eagle-X in pretty plastic?

What other manufacturers make something similar (similar speed, flight,etc) to an Eagle X in pretty plastic?

Depends on your definition of pretty. The MVP Servo is pretty close.

Agree that Servo is close to a Star EX. Not quite as much turn or as late and bitey a bite.

Even prettier is the Axiom Clash, and closer in flight to an Eagle, IMO. Has the turn (once it beats a little) and the bite. Closer to a Champ EX really, but not quite as long.

How is a JL circle stamp Eagle not pretty enough (although they are pretty beefy Eagles)?

I'm stoked on this thread. Nothing is prettier in the air, to me, than an Eagle -- that slow glidey drift to the right before it hooks up. That line just makes me smile. And so workable.

PS. Pro shop gstar EX's are lookers. They don't bite quite the same, but they're definitely Eagles.

The Salient Liquid Vein is the closest pretty one is seen, their Cryo is pretty darn nice too. It probably has a touch less turn but still very close.

Thanks for the replies.

Aside from the color schemes, I haven't been impressed with the MVP/Axiom drivers.

I'm interested in the Stag but have read that it flies more like a teebird.

As far as gstar EXs go, how do they fly?

Icon rival? Some of the icon colors are really nice looking, and I love the way it feels.

They don't quite hook up the same. It's still a late bite, but not as sharp. A little more turn in the first half. Like a broken in star.
