Looking for a fun, economical gas powered airplane that won't break the bank? Check out the Falcon Trainer 20CC. This all wood high wing trainer is perfect for lazy days at the flying field putting around the skies, sipping petrol, shooting touch and goes, or teaching someone to fly!
The Falcon Trainer comes almost ready to fly, meaning you just need to complete the final assembly and install your choice of equipment. The pre-fabricated wood components come covered in a multi-color plastic film that is durable and will look great for years to come. Rugged aluminum main landing gear absorbs landing loads and allows the Falcon Trainer to handle rough runways with ease. For easy transport the wing simply bolts in place. As this is a fun, slow flying trainer, you will just need some inexpensive standard servos for each control surface.
Running off a very common 20CC gas engine, the Falcon is low maintenance and low cost to operate. No need to run expensive nitro fuel. The large wing area, and light weight construction gives the Falcon a very light wing loading, meaning slow cruising and landing speeds. As a trainer it is very stable and forgiving. Due to its large size, it is perfect to use for other duties like aero-towing gliders, dropping parachute men, endurance UAV or aerial photography.

Bought this for a friend,who is starting with modellflying.I did not have any bigger expectaisions but this ARF is one of the best i ever built,very good passform,very nice job with the covering and really good quality on all woodparts.
Its much better then the pictures on HK websideI bought this and electrified it with an NTM 50/60 270kv, Turnigy 5000ma 6s and an 80A ESC and it pulls about 30A on a 17/10 prop. It makes a brilliant Trainer, you can put on tick over at height put full up and it won't tip stall, it just descends slowly. If you start to throw it around it will do stuff but having a flat bottomed wing it doesn't like inverted although it does inverted spins it only spiral dives the right way up. I've also towed gliders up with it. The only down side is the dihedral brace which is definitely on the fragile side as I found out when hearing a cracking noise during a manoeuvrer and discovering a split in it on landing, but to be fare for a Trainer I give it a hard time.
A Cracking Plane (hee hee).I bought this and it is a good deal. I like the plane. It flies great. I made mine electric. 6s lipo, 4,000 MAh. 100 amp esc no bec. and a G-46 turnigy motor. Really, only pulls 60 amps with a 14x 7 apc prop. Good vertical. nice flyer, touch n goes all day long. go pro platform too. This is a quality arf. Nice tall landing gear for those larger props. I love this plane :)Dont get you hopes up too much with this model as a 20cc gasser......very similar in size to the 60 Boomerang and boomerang is of a more solid construction, the falcons fuz is about 100mm longer and slightly shorter W/S, i think the falcon is more suited to a glow or an electric set up as i believe a 20cc gasser will eventually shake it to pieces, i have built both planes and put a NGH 17 in the falcon and it does fly nice and is a real gentle flyer but had to strengthen it up in alot of places to stand the rigors of the gas engineYesterday my Falcon Trainer arrived from the EU Warehouse. Although the package was a little damaged the model was ok. So nothing was broken and the model hat no dents.
