As far as I know, the consensus on the Mini Falcon is DOOO EEEET! I haven't flown one yet, but they are incredibly cool. Very cute, and even smaller than you expect. Also quite tough. Highly Recommended, from everyone I've spoken to who has one.

Tom is great to deal with too, IMO

Wackyd,

I own one and it does fly very well. only takes one evening to install your gear. Will fly in light lift and you can add a few ounces of ballast w/ a simple mod.

hope this helps!

Thanks for the post, wacky. After viewing the video of a MiniFalcon landing in a cyclone fence; I called f3x and ordered a MiniFalcon for my next trip down to Blanco... no fences, but there are a few hard rocks to aim for.

Lots of lift, Glover

He only had blue, but paint can be added.

I've spent two months at Blanco in each of the past two years. But next week we're picking up a 5wheel trailer that we're going to park in Port Orford so we can spend something more like five or six months down there each year. What a life!

Lots of lift, Glover

Would anyone like to buy my Mini Falcon?? They are $120 new-- no gear. Mine has 2 HS125 wing servos and an HS85mg for the elevator. It does have a little tiny ding on the left wingtip. I like flying it but I've invested too much into F3F planes at the moment so it's available. $165 less reciever-- I'll send pics if your interested. PM me!
