The Falcon is almost finished. Just got done with the pushrods. Can't wait to see if fly. Went with the OS 50 and Century 50 muffler, Hitec 605 servos, 1700mah nicad, gy401- 9402, rear t/r servo mount, I think it will be great.

Me too
Your damn right it well turn out great !! I had a Hawk SE V2 and it WAS so smooth, last Saturday my radio locked out and by the time I got to it after the crash my motor seized on me, so I ordered a Falcon and an OS46 and a new receiver too (they should be here Wednesday), after awhile I will order an OS50 for it and use my OS46 in a Century Bell 47g,,, knowing how smooth my Hawk was I can just imagine how smooth the bigger Falcon is !!

God I want to fly !!

Falcon V2
I had mine out yesterday at a heli meet the winds must have been 50km+
even with that the Falcon flys great! The Falcon tracks great in fw.flight
and has a solid hover!! My second back up 50 is just about done too!
This kit has some minor but great little revisions on it.

Manual/Kit revisions
Kevlar11,
If you don't mind please provide the revision date on the front of the manual. I think mine is dated in Nov/Dec 2001 but my kit was purchased in May.

Any changes to the motor mount and things like it that were not right?

Century CN3033B
GForce,
Just to let you know I had a TERRIBLE time with the CN3033B on my OS .50 SX-H. It was to restrictive and the power was not impressive on my first gallon.

I ended up running a 3/8" drill bit through the stinger and into the internal baffle to open the flow up. It made the power like someone had flipped a switch. I did this as a sacrificial test to verify if the muffler was the problem or if I had other problems. Turns out to be that the CN3033B will not let the OS .50 SX-H breath.

I am now running a TT .50 muffler but it is not as effective as the drilled out CN3033B. So, I bought a used Curtis Muscle Pipe and believe that it will let the OS .50 breath properly.

Just wanted to let you know.

Falcon SE2
Hi Payton
My manual is the same date as yours my first seV2 didn't have this manual
so the changes are probably on your machine. I.E. the tail pitch slider has a sholder on it .

so far I haven't had a problem with the motor mount
