Maxford USA Fieseler Fi-156 Storch EP 63" Wingspan ARTF
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.
