It would look better clean. Hand launch or use a launcher and shut down and skid in.

Is the weight correct in the specs? 7.8 lbs? That looks like a lot for a small plane.

I dont think thats is the correct weight but that thing is a Magnum R 100% Clone and for US$79.00 you can buy it with your eyes closed

interesting plane, but they can not be serious about that landing gear placement ......

Also worth noting they listed it as a "30" size plane.

- 4-Channel Falcon 30 - 34.3" United States Air Force USAF Nitro Gas Radio Remote Control Airplane Jet Glider


So, it's glow and gas, radio and remote control, a jet and a glider all in one. Pretty impressive! (yes I know these are hit words).

- Key Features :
Our evergreen model airplane

Okay, I'll bite - what's an "evergreen" model airplane? Is it made entirely of spruce or pine? Maybe that explains the 7.8 pound weight for a .36 size aircraft?



After putting on quite a few more flights on my Magnum R lately, I am looking forward to transplanting the West .50/pipe into a Q500 instead. The Magnum flies okay but I am really not in love with it. Maybe with a different color scheme..?

Yeah, $79.00 is a good deal for sure - if it is up to the task structurally for some abuse in the engine compartment..

If you check the Magnum R is also a 30 size plane with a 50 size engine

Check the picture and you will see the hatch that cover the elevator servo. Same as the Magnum. To much coincidence????

It is not a Magnum entirely: it has a canopy, the Mag does not. And it has a rudder... The engine compartment looks a tiny bit different too.

If anything, it is a clone (with some revisions) of the old Magnum, and not the newer R version. I looks like they even copied the horrible gap on the wing saddle...

If the weight is correct we won't ask about the wing loading.

Isaac:

From post, just had to buy one. It weight in at 5.02 pounds in the box, construction looks decent for a cheepie, very thin wing. Will stick a Webra 35 with pipe in it soon, and see what is what. Landing gear does look hokey, but I will just not try to skid something in on our very rough asphalt strip. Looks like it will have some streight line speed, doubt if it will turn around the pylons well.
