About this Plan

Falcon 56 Mk II. RC sport/trainer model. Discontinued kit. For .19 to .40 engines and 3 to 4 channel proportional RC. Carl Goldberg Kit # G15 II.

Note this is a later version of the original Falcon 56 (oz2424) from Carl Goldberg.

Planfile includes full build instructions.

Quote: "First, read 'General Instructions' and decide whether you want a 3 or 4 channel airplane. In a 3-channel setup, the wing has no ailerons, but stabilizes itself with sufficient dihedral (the upward bend of the wings). The wing for a 40channel ship is somewhat flatterm and uses ailerons to provide control.

One end of each wing spar has been angled at the factory for the 4-channel dihedral. If you're building a 3-channel wing, die-cut plywood guages will help you change to the greater angle. Also, the plywood wing joiners are designed to accomodate either dihedral. The following instructions cover the construction of both the 3-channel and 4-channel wings..."

If you look at the top left of the 56 Mk II you will see a small inset of the Bulkheads, just use the fuselage box to make them, that goes for the 56 also - both are OK.

Happy New Year. Here is a photo of my Falcon 56 MK2, I built in between Jan-March 1979 [pic 006]. I used it as a school project. My parents bought it for me as a Christmas present after I crashed my Midwest Sweet Stick.

Hello, just would like to share this... built in 1987... still in flying condition after some repairs [pic 007]. It was for 30 years in the attic of a friend.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
