Fieseler Fi-156C Storch EP 63" ARF Folding Wing V2
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.
This RC Storch has the same feature that the pilot can fold back the wing, then a 63” wingspan Storch can 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, and the option of a Scale Upgrade Package which includes a Scale Pilot Seat, Dashboard, Machine Gun, Airspeed Sensor, Light and Oil Cooler, all stored in a handsome plywood box.

Full Product Reviews of Version 1
REGARDING CA HINGES:
A modeler recently told us he strongly feels both ends of each CA hinge must be glued at the same time. We have listened, and we now assure you: Any and all CA hinges in our current stock are either fully preglued at both ends or require that you, the builder of the ARF, apply the CA adhesive to both ends during assembly.
If you have an ARF with a CA hinge preglued at the factory, and if you want an extra measure of security in the hinge’s strength, insert and cut off a straight-pin centered in each half of the hinge, through the airplane’s wooden structure, the CA hinge, and the wood on the other side of the wooden structure, then apply a drop of CA adhesive or clear nail polish to secure each end of the cut off pin. (You do not need to drill a hole for the pin – simply push the pin through and trim off the excess.)
