A free-flight glider A1 (F1H) kit “Der Kleine FALKE” with a wingspan of 1240mm with an option to install the RC control system and a propelling unit with an electromotor. Whole-balsa wood model with laser-cut parts with a pre-ground Jedelsky system wing with a carbon reinforcement of tailplanes. High pre-processing, simple to build, excellent flight characteristics. Perfect as a first “adult” glider model.
Der Kleine FALKE (Little Falcon) is a perfect first “adult” glider, with which you will learn the basic building skills and you will learn to fly with models. And that’s not all – Der Kleine FALKE can be built as a free-flight glider class A1 (international F1H), so you can fly around for fun or you can join junior competitions. You can also install a small receiver and 2 micro servos obtaining a small RC glider. And we haven’t finished yet – you can also mount a pylon with a small brushless motor and propeller to enjoy flying a motor glider. Thanks to a clever design Der Kleine FALKE can be built as a free-flight model, but you can easily add RC controls and a motor anytime after finishing! Or vice versa…
Thanks to laser-cut parts, you will need just basic tools during building (modeller’s knife, razor saw or fretsaw, sanding paper, pins, flat brush), a modeller’s glue and dope. Clever design, interlocking parts, ingenious tools included in the package, and a high level of pre-processing allows for a fast build time.
A front part of the fuselage is made of laser-cut balsa wood and plywood parts, and there’s enough space for a weight and a timer for a free-flight model and receiver or propulsion battery, two servos and a receiver for the RC model. Quick access to the electronics is through a detachable cowl. Tail reinforcement is made of aluminium tube guaranteeing low weight but high durability.
A Whole-balsa wood wing with a Jedelsky profile has a leading part made of pre-ground balsa wood strips. Thanks to a savvy design, you will only need a straight work desk to build it. The wing is attached to the fuselage by rubber bands.
V-tail is made of laser-cut balsa wood parts. Ruddervators are mounted on nylon hinges; to control or set them up there’s a pair of wire linkages attached to a carbon fuselage reinforcement leading to a space in the hull. When you use it as a free-flight model, secure the linkages to the outer tube using a piece of duct tape – ruddervators will be fixed, yet still adjustable if needed.
Supplied towing hook allows you to tow the Der Kleine FALKE on a 25–50m fishing line or launching it vith a small catapult (5m rubberband 3x2mm + 20m line cable)
For the RC glider, you will need an RC set featuring the V-tail mix, micro receiver and two 5–6g servos.
The Der Kleine FALKE was designed and is made in Czechia.
Kit contains: laser-cut balsa wood and plywood parts, pre-ground wing and tailplane parts, carbon tail reinforcement, wire linkages and small accessories, sanding paper, weight, rubber bands to attach the wing, towing hook, stickers sheet, building plan, user manual.
