falcon the kestrel
Been enjoying reading skill builders here building their scale electric planes from scratchbuild in the forum,they are the real experts of the RC aircraft builders
tried to build scale birds since my retirement because I'm one of the RC bird lovers
fibreglass is the best material to buid the scale birds fuselage,and cheap hotwired foam wings can easily convert to bird's wing.
3 servos simple control for elevator and aileron,will add falps to this bird soon.
wings of the RC birds are critical to the success of the flight,have suffering a lot during the testing flights.
the first vid end up with stall dued to the samll ailerons size and flat setup.
good and easy flights on the second vid with better aileron size and 3% upward setup

Very cool Sam. I have flown a few ornithopters but have been thinking about building something like yours soon. I have scratch built, plans built and kit built normal airplane but am not quite sure how to get started.
Do you have any three views or plans for these or do you just work em out of your head based on what looks right?
Thanks for sharing the pics.

Cool videos, you've got talent to build these birds.
Reading on i seem to notice that you own an SK Slowhawk.
If so, would you think it might be interested in beeing adopted by me.?
Keep on the great work.
