Who could forget the Goldberg Falcon™ – the plane that taught thousands of modelers to fly?  Introduced in 1962, this iconic aircraft initiated thousands of R/C pilots, taking them from the beginning steps into basic aerobatics where they could feel comfortable at fun fly events.  It quickly became the one plane that had to go to the flying field! 

 

Re-engineered with today’s improved manufacturing and power technologies in mind, the Falcon has returned to teach another generation how to fly.  Strong, lightweight Pro-Formance™ foam has replaced the built-up balsa airframe.  A clean, quiet brushless electric motor provides plenty of torque for smooth, confident performance.  And the EP Falcon ARF is equally at home indoors as well as outdoors on a calm day. 

 

The classic profile and gentle flight characteristics that made the Falcon a modeler’s favorite for over 40 years are back – just like modelers remember them – only better.

 

ü  The EP Falcon ARF’s timeless look has been captured in a 37” span model that travels easily.

ü  The ElectriFly® RimFire™ 250 motor is an economical choice for powering the model.

ü  Because of its light weight, the EP Falcon ARF is an agile indoor model; but with the wing doubler for strength, the Falcon may be flown outdoors as well, on a calm day.
