Foam model aircraft are great if you want to get flying quickly, but after a while tends to all fly and assemble the same way, and it could be said lack a certain sense of achievement. So why not experience the thrill and satisfaction of building your very own model from a kit of parts, covering it in your own unique color scheme, and watching it fly successfully for the very first time.

H-King has made this much easier for you with their range of laser cut kits. For ease of construction, all the wooden parts are beautifully laser cut so you can build the perfect model. The laser cutting is so accurate that the parts fit very snugly together allowing them to hold in place whilst you run a good CA glue around the joints.

The subject of this kit is the German liaison aircraft built during WW2, the Fieseler Fi 156 Storch. The Storch (German for "Stork") is famous for its STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) abilities and it had an incredibly low stall speed of only 31mph (miles per hour). It was mainly used during WW2 for reconnaissance, spotting for the army and forward operations, and medical evacuation. Its design incorporated hinged slats along the entire length of the wings leading edge and a hinged and slotted set of control surfaces ran along each trailing edge, this was split equally to form outboard ailerons and inboard flaps. Virtually nothing about the Storch is streamlined with bits sticking out everywhere including the side windows, this with its long undercarriage hanging down gives it a unique long-legged bird look which is why it was given the name of "Storch".

This kit is an updated version of an earlier version. The improvements over the original are improved undercarriage and strut attachments, improved pushrod system, 3 layer tailplane construction for added strength, and improved scale detail. This model captures the very essence of the Fieseler Fi 156 Storch with its solid yet lightweight framework structure as per the full-size aircraft but is built from balsa and hardwoods and includes a molded plastic cowl and rear screen. Also supplied are a pair of scale aircraft wheels, carbon tube wing spars, and joiners plus a comprehensive hardware pack that includes nuts, bolts, control horns, rods, and connectors, etc.

The Fieseler Storch has been designed to use a 28mm brushless outrunner motor with 300~400 watts of power or it can be modified to take an equivalent nitro engine. The leading edge slats can be fixed for a simpler set up or they can be working with a servo on each. The flaps also could be fixed for a simpler set up but this model comes into its own with working flaps. So if you have working slats and flaps plus the ailerons you will require 6 x 9~10g micro servos for the wings then 2 x 9~10g or similar for the rudder and elevator.

Overall this is a fantastic kit and due to its ease of construction, it is perfect for the seasoned builder or those with limited building experience. Once finished in an authentic color scheme, and with the addition of scale accessories such as a pilot and instrument panel, this scale looking Fieseler Storch will look the part and turn heads when performing low, slow passes and STOL take-offs and landings at your local flying field.

Nach mehreren Flügen stellte sich heraus dass die Endleisten der Landeklappen und Querruder zu dick sind. Auf allen Fotos und You tube Filmen sind die Original "Störche" mit scharfkantigen Landeklappen und Querruder ausgerüstet. Ich habe die LK und QR nochmals mit spitz zulaufenden Endkanten gebaut und siehe da, der Storch liegt besser in der Luft und die Wirkungsweise der Landeklappen verbesserte sich dadurch. Ich empfehle beim Bau der Klappen und Querruder dies sofort zu berücksichtigen

Do NOT order from EU warehouse for USA shipment

Aug 19, 2022

I never actually received this kit. It made it to a USA warehouse FedEx, but was not released due to some obscure EPA import rules and was returned to shipper. HobbyKing customer service was exemplary and super helpful in their communications and refund of the kit. I did order a Eindecker kit by the same maker; I'll leave a separate review of that plane. So far so good with the Eindecker!

Gestern absolvierte der Storch seinen Jungfernflug. Der Pilot war leicht nervös, als der Vogel aber nach ein paar Metern abhob und ohne der kleinsten Ruderkorrektur seine "Reiseflughöhe" erreichte war die Nervosität verflogen. Ich habe den Storch mit einem 3548 Motor mit 3 S 3300 mAh und einem Propeller 13x8 E bestückt. Der Schwerpunkt wurde damit ohne Bleizugabe bei exakt 70 mm erreicht. Zum Start die Landeklappen mässig nach unten und die Flapps an der Nasenleiste ca 4 mm geöffnet, ist nach ein paar Metern schon Luft unter den Rädern. Ein 3 Achskreisel trägt wesentlich zu einem entspannten Steuerverhalten und zu einem naturgetreuen Flugbild bei. Zur Landung die Klappen kräftig nach unten und die Nasenleistenflapps ca 8 mm offen schwebt der Storch zur Landung. Rundherum ein super Modell.

It's more like assembling ready-made components.

Feb 09, 2022

Glad to have received it from EU warehouse on October 26, 2021 for €107.99. In fact, HK has the fairest offer right now while containers are backing up in China and freight prices are skyrocketing.
I'm in the middle of construction now. I've been building model airplanes since the 1970's and designing since the 80's. But my focus is on flying and everything else is just a means to an end for me. So blessed with little passion. What I really appreciate about this kit is the quick and easy assembly of the precisely lasered components, which is fun and a bit like a puzzle. No comparison to the effort of the construction kits from the last century or even self-designed scale models. It might not be the very first set. You don't really need much skill with this type of kit and you don't need a lot of expensive tools. However, the kitchen table should not be used for this.
For the completion I only use material from the HK range. The light green of the new film in particular goes very well with the view from below. In general, I think HK foils are good once you figure out how to remove the protective foil, which is very difficult to remove - better with a scalpel tip than with a needle! Luckily for me, I bought most of the entire range of foils when a roll was still available for less than €10!
I'm curious how it will fly. Anyway, I'll control the slat flaps. I would also like to publish my flight experiences and trimming measures for the model here afterwards.

Excelente Bausatzqualität

Feb 07, 2022

Der Laserschnitt der Teile ist excelent, alles passt perfekt zusammen sogar die Fenster sind vorgebohrt und die Bohrlöcher passen exakt zu den Bohrlöchern an den Fensterrahmen. Der Bausatz beinhaltet jedes einzelne Detail, alle Schrauben Muttern, Räder, Ruderscharniere, Ruderhörner eben alles. Man braucht aber für diesen hochwertigen Bausatz einige Erfahrung im Flugmodellbau. Die bebilderte Bauanleitung ist für einen erfahrenen Flugmodellbauer ausreichend. Auch die 1:1 Baupläne sind OK, decken sich aber nicht 100 % mit den Teilen. Macht aber keine Probleme. Gespannt bin ich, wie sich der "Storch" in der Luft verhält. Bis dahin wird noch ein Monat vergehen.

Preissteigerung um 21,6 % in 2022 zu 2021! Nicht schön.

Am 26.10.2021 aus dem EU Lager für 107,99 € gekauft, fast alles ist jetzt auch bei HK teurer geworden.

So overall a great model for a great price and a fun build. The directions however really need to be revamped and more of a user friendly layout. Some directions had missing information or a helpful picture. Some parts were not even mention or show. In the either the direction book or full size plans. A few more close ups of some assembled parts would be helpful. I realize the model has been altered and redone, but it would have been nice if they updated the plans along with the model. I enjoyed this model

Superb kit, with all pre-cut parts fitting nicely. Kit includes almost everything you need to complete it.hing you need to complete the model is included

Oct 16, 2021

Well packed kit of parts, in most cases with clear markings to indicate where parts are to go. A very complete inclusion of most parts to finish the model, with a relatively comprehensive well illustrated construction manual which can be a bit ambiguous at times, but should not be a problem for experienced constructors.
In summary, a very well designed kit, and excellent value.

Fieseler Fi 156 Storch

Oct 14, 2021

This was one of the most challenging builds I've ever had--Instructions are a joke thought this kit came from IKEA lots of pictures -- it's not for the faint of heart but the end result is worth it. But if this is your first kit your going to be in trouble. I'm a experienced builder and this build challenged me at every step. A good set of instructions would be extremely helpful.
