After receiving a new Falcon 56 kit that I purchased on
eBay, I decided that, with my limited time, I'd offer the kit to another
builder to make for this article. I have farmed out projects to others
for building a number of times and they have all made superb examples
from the kits. Alain Fugere decided to take this project on and, in record
time, a fine Falcon 56 airplane was created from the original kit.
airplane continues to stand the test of time as a intermediate trainer
for all new builders. It features easy construction methods and builds
up very fast. It has great aerodynamic properties like a semi-symmetrical
wing and ailerons. The shoulder wing assures a high degree of stability
and the big stabilizer makes for great pitch and turn performance. The
Falcon 56 has been built by countless modelers all over the world and
is a favorite with many. A series of postings that cover the build sequence
of this airplane have been made on the Builders’ Forum. To review the
construction go HERE.
As you can see, Alain has done an extremely nice job of building and
finishing this kit.
