The Fieseler Fi 156 Storch was one of the most iconic aircraft to serve in the Luftwaffe, seeing service in every German theatre of conflict during WW2. To this day it is still considered to be one of the best STOL (Short takeoff and landing) designs of all time. As a liaison and observation platform it was second to none out performing every allied counterpart with both its rugged construction, reliability and performance. More importantly, it displays excellent slow flying capabilities. Flying with ease over many a battle field for sustained periods of time with its slow flying speed actually being one of its major defensive measures. It simply flew too low and slow for allied pilots to shoot it down! It is for these very reasons that many a renowned allied generals preferred to use captured Storch's for their own personal transportation over areas of conflict. Most noticeably, Field Marshal Montgomery and Air Vice Marshal Harry Broadhurst both used Storch's in the North African and Western Europe theaters of war.

The Balsa Series Fieseler Storch 15e from Durafly is a beautiful scale model, but what really makes it stand out is its quality. The built-up construction, the glass fibre cowl, the finish, the pre-installed electronics, its scale outline and high level of prefabrication all come together to form one brilliant model. The balsa and lite ply construction is both light weight yet incredibly strong, lending itself completely to the scale outline of the model. The control surfaces are pre-hinged, coming with pre-installed glass fibre control horns. The undercarriage is a two-piece unit out of the box, requiring only minimal effort (and glue) for installation. The wing utilizes a very simple but secure latching mechanism, this allows the Storch to break down easily for transportation and maintenance. Simply slide the wing halves over the carbon spar, click the wings securely into place and once you've screwed down the wing struts, you're virtually ready to go. All that remains is to install those small scale details that really finish off the Balsa Series Storch such as the landing gear covers, supports, tail braces and the navigator's machine gun.

Of course the high level of quality doesn't stop with the model alone. Our Fi-156 uses some of our most popular and reliable components, all of which are supplied installed in the model right out of the box. The control surfaces use the hugely popular HXT 900 9g servos (two on the ailerons and flaps, one each on the rudder and elevator). A Turnigy 25amp ESC is pre-installed in the fuselage controlling the powerful and much loved NTM 35mm brushless outrunner. This swings a high efficiency 10" prop (also included). The power system is designed around the use of the ever popular 2200mah 3S lipoly battery, installation and access to which couldn't be easier thanks to the magnetically held front and rear canopy hatches. In little more time than it takes to assemble your average foam park flyer, you'll have this very striking balsa PNF Storch ready for flight, looking every bit like its full sized counterpart.

On the ground there's no denying that the Durafly® ™ Fi-156 Storch looks the part, but in the air she really comes into her own. The Storch certainly has all the power you could want on 3S and is more than capable of performing basic aerobatic maneuvers. The light weight structure coupled with the leading edge slats and use of flaps really brings the Storch to life in slow speed flight, with scale like short take offs and landings well within the scope of this beautiful model. The Balsa Series Storch really is a fantastic model for those looking for scale looks and performance out of the box.

It is without doubt the cutest of all the very many models I have purchased from HK. It would be great to see more models of the same quality and build material. I like the foamies but this is special.
Flying wise, some owners remove the wing slat. Don't, its not necessary and is not the cause of bad behaviour in the air. Use small amounts of control movement with expotential. It is very sensitive. I also use a smaller 1300-1500 3s battery to save weight and improve performance (slower flying speed). Keep some power on for landing. Warning! a heavyish landing will punch the U/C legs up into the belly of the fuse. Strengthening just behind the firewall did the trick. One other trick, if like me you have the Durafly Spit, Mustang etc they all use the same basic 4 blade prop. When you break one simply trim down to two blades, balance carefully and they work superbly on the Storch and look way better than the original.

Hemos comprado tres para mi y dos compaeros. Un modelo precioso, muy bien detallado para ese precio y tamao. El montaje no ha tenido problemas.
En dos de los modelos ha fallado el ESC, uno no funciona y otro tiene un comportamiento errtico, los hemos sustitudo directamente por otros fiables antes de volar.
Con el motor y hlice recomendadas e includas est excesivamente sobremotorizado, con una 8x4" tiene un vuelo muy real y con 9x6" cuenta con mucha potencia extra que aumenta la seguridad del vuelo, con la 10x6" es excesiva la potencia y el vuelo debe ser "con mucha mano izquierda".
En resumen, muy buen modelo.

We bought three for my and two companions. A very well detailed for that price and size. The assembly had no problems.
In two of the models failed the ESC, one does not work and another has an erratic behavior, we have replaced directly by other reliable before flying.
With the engine and propeller recommended and included (10x6) is too power, with a 8x4" has a very real flight and 9x6" has a lot of extra power to increase flight safety, with 10x6 "excessive power and the flight should be "with much left hand."
In short, very good model.

As previously stated by many it is a great little model and very cute. It is also one of the hardest planes to fly I have encountered. Warning- use very little control movement. Extremely sensitive to pitch and roll. Less power is much better. It will float if you use a 1300 sized battery. I use 1300 and it is a different plane from others who fly them. One guy at my club gave it away coz its such a handful. Reduce the weight, reduce the power, minimise the control throws to bugger all and fit a HK 3 axis stabiliser. Now it will fly and land like a Storch should.

The fuselage and wings are nicely finished.
The mounting difficulty is medium-low.
You must use superglue to glue the various loose parts.
25A BEC failed me on the second day and had to put a BEC 40A.
The wheels are very small and the grass runway prevents both takeoff and landing. If you put a far higher fare better.
Everything else is correct.

Hello.
The aircraft has very good quality and is very light. The only thing to be careful of is to fix the rods to the fuselage landing gear comes in handy not open the holes where they stay.

The flaps are neither necessary nor for takeoff or landing, although if you want you can use.

There are two L-shaped rods do not know how to install them on the plane.

Good buy eventually.

The plane is very real and is very much like the original.
It is very well done and is very light but can seem very delicate.
I to put the landing gear gave me the piece of wood where the front lower rods are attached. I had to re-attach the piece of wood and eventually used the drill to enlarge the holes slightly.
ESC I think the value is very small and I think I will install another higher amperage, about 30-40A.
Overall it is a good product and I came home very fast, it took only four days.

Instructions were very poor at best, had to rework all servo horns and turn one servo around to make control rods reach. No recommendations on wow to setup flaps on this airplane that is kinda built around flap operations. Very poor inflight performance. plenty of power, fuselage built very well but has a nasty tendancy towards violent tip stalls at lower speeds. If this plane tip stalls at lower than 100 ft. its almost certian to crash. I have flown dozens of aircraft from giant scale ww1 warbirds to electric jets and center around ww2 fighters but I have never flown one this bad about stalling! Kinda defeats the purpose of this aircraft! waisted 175 dollars. will replace the wing and put it up for sale at a loss to me. durafly, I love my S.E.5a have had it for 3 years now but this model FAILS!!

WOW!!! What a great looking plane,yet to start build but this Storch is definatly a scale model with great coverings.. can't wait to get it finished and in the air.
