Well my first question is can you fit the Falcon 120 in your vehical with out a lot of fuse?
I just got a new Chrysler Town and Contry and it still dont fit in my van with out a lot a issues, as I refuse to take it apart. So I Put it on the roof rack, I drive a little less than an hour to the flying feild at 70mph with no issues, just zip ties throw the prolinks to the cross bars. But if Something bad happens (I was haveing so much fun I ran out of fuel, did not quite make it back and it ripped the nose gear out, then I have to fit it in the van on top of my othere jets a very big pain in the)
Dose it fly great yes, and I agree with the statements above, I have 3 buddys who have them, and while they have other very nice jets, I have never seen them fly them, only there falcon, and the excuses go on and on, but in the end of the day I just think there scared and are haveing a tone of fun with the falcon. All 3 of them fly there with 22 pound turbines at max power, there a blast, but mine is heavyer and flys almost the same with a very heave 17.5 pound AMT air start Turbine.
I got my wavor with a JCM Delta Dart 106 with AMT 180 very over weight around 22 pounds with a 45in wing span, while it was like riding a bull it was very challanges and tought me a lot, and now that I know I can fly such a hard jet, everything eles no longer worries me.
I currently have a Carf Eurosport with KT140 and I would say it flys almost the same as the Falcon, just with more pucker factor.
I got an F16 with a P80 and while its harder to fly than the Falcon or the Euroosport its not that hard.
Me personaly recomend everyone to start off with a Falcon 120 as it is easy, and to those who have been flying more challing planes its so easy its almost like a foamy, but it is very cheap, and when you have the first couple of bad landing, its very easy to repair, or just replace, vs a sweet F15 that the first time you bring it in to slow and it drops 2 feet and brakes the nose off you will be very disapointed and may give up as the $$ you lost is ......
I have even seen one guy (Doctor Honda) put old school ugly stick landing gear legs with a dubro front nose wheel on his falcon. The point is you can get the jet for very cheap, buy the servos you plane on useing in your later F15, and get all the turbine goodies you plan on useing in your F15 (retract, brake vales etc) and build you a Falcon.
Put 30 flight on it, you may just keep it as I have seen, or pull all your goodies out this winter and put them in your new winter build F15, sell your Falcon for 1/2 the price you paid, and then you few the rest of this summer on a $300 inventement? Heck you can almost spend that much on a smoke system and a servo.
But at the end of the day its your call, I have been dreaming of a F15 my self, and I just got a sweet P120 for one, but I got offered a Carf Rookie at a very cheap price and I want to try 3D...
Just make sure you buy good stuff that you can use later.
