No direct experience to quote Brian, but I am constantly amazed at how little power vintage models seem to need to fly well (OK, I am talking electrics here). Also there is a thread hereabouts showing a Taplin Twin flying a Smog Hog in a very spirited manner - now I know the Hog is much smaller than the Falcon but it is a pretty chunky model and not such a "floater" as the Falcon. So my gut feeling would be - yes, the Taplin would probably fly the Falcon in a reasonable, albeit genteel, manner. And it would look really good perched on the front!
