I am selling my older Falcon 46. As parts needed replacement it has slowly become the newer version. It still runs! Anyone interested??

This is an older picture of it. It has since been upgraded. It now has carbon fiber blades. If anyone is interested let me know. I can take more pictures on Tuesday.

Yeah

Believe me I would love to, I haven't flown in a year, I just have absolutely no time because I am graduate school. Hopefully I will be back in 5 years.

Don't want to tell you anything that will interfere with your education, but make time for your hobbies. Once you've decided what your going to do with the rest of your life, you'll still have your hobbies and your sanity. It only gets harder as you go along. I only wished I had stayed at it almost 17 years ago. Time flies after a certain age...remember that!!!

Later...

Pictures

I would ultimately like someone to be interested in buying the whole lot, but feel free to request specific parts, or parts of the heli. For instance I would see the entire tail as a lot. Also, I have very high quality versions of these pictures were you can zoom in and scrutinize every last detail. You can view those pictures from

I think it would be a bit pricey for him to convert that to a Raven 50 or even a Hawk Pro for that matter.

From the pictures it looks to be an old original Falcon 46 (launched in 1998) with the 8mm mainshaft etc. - not the Falcon III or the SE. It was basically the old Hawk III with old canopy (I like this canopy for drag racing :-)), a longer boom, longer wire-in-tube tail drive, motor mount and pinion for the OS46 and with 600mm woodies instead of the 550's. It has very little in common with the last version of the Falcon (SE) or with any version of the Raven 50. This one and the current models are very different animals.

Though it was a worthy animal, for its price, in its' day, today the Hawk Pro would be a far better heli. As the current Hawk Pro has the longer and larger 10mm mainshaft system, the SS torque tube tail drive system, radial bearings on all control surfaces, a much better swashplate, the newer style larger canopy etc. etc.

Much like comparing an older Hirobo Shuttle Z with the current Shuttle Sceado Evo. Or an older Rappy V1 with the V2/SE.

But some of the parts could still be used on others (e.g. Tail boom, landing gear skids, tail gearbox, tail gears) and most of the parts are still available for it.

Make offers

Make offers guys, I am willing to part out, anything you see in the pictures. Some of the parts are the newer SE parts. The main body is the SE body. Also most of the tail assembly. I have two tail booms in practically perfect condition (one is new) and two perfect wire drive shafts. I have the woodies which are in great condition.
