Fieseler Fi-156C Storch EP 63" ARF with Folding Wing

The Fieseler Fi-156 Storch (pronounced Stork) was a small German liaison and observation aircraft built by Fieseler before and during World War II. It included a design feature that was rare for land-based aircraft: the wings on the Storch could be folded back along the fuselage.

The Storch could be found on every front throughout the European and North African theaters of operation in World War II. It was probably most famous for its role in rescuing deposed Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. The Storch was the personal aircraft of German Field Marshal Rommel (known as the Desert Fox) in North Africa. During the war at least 60 Storchs were captured by the Allies, one becoming the personal aircraft of Field Marshal Montgomery.

A Storch was the victim of the last dog fight on the Western Front and another was fittingly downed by a direct Allied counterpart of the Storch—an L-4 Grasshopper, from the L-4's crew directing their pistol fire at it. The pilot and co-pilot of the L-4, Lts. Duane Francis and Bill Martin, opened fire on the Storch with their .45 caliber pistols, forcing the German air crew to land and surrender. That Storch was the only aircraft known to have been downed by handgun fire in the entire war.

This RC Storch has the same feature that the pilot can fold back the wing, allowing a 63” wingspan Storch to easily fit into a compact car. Different from other RC versions and sizes of the Storch, this one has maximum throw of ailerons, and it comes with functional slats and flaps.

Special Features:
• Scale Folding-Wing design
• Shock-absorbing scale landing gear
• Functional flaps and slats
• Special designed ailerons allow maximum throw setup
• Optional detail upgrade box
• Scale steerable tail wheel

Note that this product contains the plane only. Flight equipment is necessary.

"Storch"

Descriptive text: As with most Maxford ARFs, the Storch is of nice quality. A few minor dings, a couple of missing parts and somewhat vague instructions. The end result is a nice looking, nice flying model. One word of caution - the leading edge slat control horn is thin plywood and one of mine broke while flying in strong gusty wind. I have reinforced both with epoxy and fiberglass hinge material.

Descriptive text: The first thing you need to know is the instructions are 180 degrease off about the instillation of the landing gear. Turn it around and it fits properly. Second thing is the carbon fiber spar. It is too thin and will snap unless you take a 3/8" hardwood dowel and chuck it up in a drill and while spinning it with the drill you need to sand it down until you can just barely push it all the way through the carbon fiber spar. Let it stick out about 1/2" and taper the ends for easy alignment into th... More details
