For Sale

Falcon 600 2-meter RTF


A classic designed by Mark Allen, but still competitive today. I brought her out of retirement to fly the 2008 contest season, but now Iíve moved on to the Kennedy Composites Sprite.

While this design usually has a one piece wing, Mark made my wings special as a factory equipped two piece with titanium wing rod. This is one of the earlier ones with balsa skins over foam rather than obechie. Rudder and stabs are built up balsa. Fuselage is 2.4 safe fiberglass.

The six installed servos are all Airtronics of the older analog type. Receiver is an Airtronics 8 channel 72mhz FM (old style plugs). Battery is AAA size and was good last season, but test it.

Itís never had what I'd call a crash. Fuselage has never been broken. Paint is scratched up and Monocote is patched here and there from use and various minor mishaps such as one tangle with a barb wire fence I remember. The two bolt holes at the center TE of the wing have been ripped out before on dork landings, but they are fixed and have been holding fine; one needs a Monocote patch as you can see in the pictures.

RTF weight is 43.74 ounces.

Asking $275 plus shipping OBO.

I know , but I still have my Falcon 800 put away

I am out of storage space and it's hard to pick what must leave.

Falcon


I second what Mark said. That plane has probally won about every contest on the west coast, many times more than once. Good luck with the sale.
See you at the Fall Fest. Mike from FSS

Howzit Bob, Would you like to swap the Falcon for a Mibo Swift?

It's too much of a plane for me to fly!! I need something more forgiving to fly. I can give you more info and pictures. It's in good shape!! I just get too nervous when I fly it.

Scale Swift S1: We have that plane already . We won the fuselage and obechie skinned wings in a raffle and I never knew who the maker of the kit was. Maybe it is not the exact swift you have. Ours is about a 2 meter span I think. It is a cool plane, but we donít slope soar much so it has not flown in years.

Thanks for proposing the trade, but I better not. Iím trying to clear space, not stay even.

Bob, yes it is the scale S1 I think it's around 90" wingspan. I know it was bigger than my Gerasis Fox which was around 2 meters.
