General Fechet’s Curtiss O-1C Falcon – 22.5in wingspan


The Curtiss Falcon was one of the finest military airplanes of its type in the mid-1920’s.  This model construction plan presents the striking black and yellow personal transport aircraft of Major General James E. Fechet who was Chief of the US Army Air Corps from 1927 – 1931.

With a 22.5 inch wingspan, this Curtiss Falcon model has terrific moments for a free flight flying scale model.  Featuring lightweight yet robust box and former construction, the model offers excellent flight performance with durability.

Qualifies to fly in FAC Scale, Golden Age Military, and Golden Age Multi-wing  events.


Designed by noted Free Flight sport and scale model airplane designer Tom Nallen, this black and white plan includes full-sized top, side and front views of all components such that they can be built directly over the plan.  Stick and sheet balsa stock dimensions are indicated on the plan and all sheet balsa parts are printed full-size for use as templates in cutting out accurate parts to construct the model framework.  This is a Beginner/Intermediate-level Free Flight Flying Scale model to build and fly and is a good follow-on to a rubber powered free flight sport model.

Model construction plan fits on a single Architectural D (24 x 36 inches)  sheet.
