Falconet MkII Speed 400 build.
Here is a cool find at Mike's Hobby bi-anuual swap meet here in TX..
A rare NIB Faconet MkII.
Includes full-size plans and a rather detailed build instruction.
I am building LIGHT, so this little plane should perform on minimal wattage.
I am shooting for less than 13 oz on a 1000mah 3s.
The old plane had to lug around 15+ oz, so this should fly nicely.
Here is the Scorpion motor I bought off RCG thread for $20 shipped.
This is just the project I was looking for.. low cost, high return, with endearing and entertaining value.

Nice score, Mike! I'll bet Brian Buaas would love to see this thread. I had a really nice Falconet and sold it many years ago when the Stinger arrived on scene. Subscribed.

Thank you for the recognition Troy. The designers may want to see this one.
I am deviating from 3s as the fuse/firewall cannot contain vibrations without reinforcement.
No worries, as this one is going to be lighter on 2s, with better thrust to weight.
54g. Scorpion outrunner, 2600 kv.
20a ZTW esc
1000 mah 2s, 35c.
APC 6x5.5" or 5.25x6.25"
Amp draw is around 20 amps static.. a mere 150 watts you say?
Well.. consider the 12 oz AUW, paired with 20 oz static thrust.
Here is the fuse loaded up minus tail, (yes it will get a proper spinnner)..
