Fieseler Storch 2850 mm ARF Black HorseJust when you thought that Black Horse had done everything, they come up with a model that is both iconic and complex all at the same time.
The Storch is all about slow speed flight and STOL performance. It all comes courtesy of that complex high lift wing featuring both slats and flaps. The Black Horse version has fixed slats and real 'Fowler flaps. The flaps and ailerons even have details such as simulated mass balances out on 'stalks', just like the real one. When down, the slow speed performance has to be seen to be believed! Not only is it slow, it is predictable and controllable as well. The scale-like struts look good and are fully structurall as well.
The fuselage has a realistic canopy and cockpit area. To do this, Black Horse have used a complex metal rod internal structure and brazed it together. It is very strong and part of the overall design of the model. There has been no compromise on scale appearance to make it easier to manufacture. Exactly what you would expect from BlackHorse!
Then there is the undecarriage. A true and functioning representation of one of the key design features in a Storch. It is both complex and simple at the same time with working oleos.
All you need is a 28-33cc petrol engine for her to waft into the air. That's when that stunning scale colour scheme is so readily apparent. Performance is sedate (as you would expect) but the fun of STOL performance is very addictive.
The Black Horse Storch has a big presence and will be the envy of your mates! Go on, you know it makes sense.
