Falcon is a new generation F3K glider developed by Nikolay Gorban from High Quality in cooperation with Oleg Golovidov. It’s produced in Ukraine using CNC-machined molds and a combination of spread carbon and solid foam core. All the surfaces pass the quality tests and get polished to shine under the sun on the field before shipping.
The design of this glider is inspired by flying XX-Lite and NXT and combines their best flying characteristics of both. It offers an unbeatable launch performance, wide speed range and an ability to float in the lightest thermals.
It can fly fast to penetrate the strong winds or make the fast passes across the field as well as “hover” in the tiny thermal with a small camber input. This glider would be a great choice for both a beginner pilot as well as for the pro F3K competitor considering its price, compared to the similar models.

Falcon features the fuze designed to fit all 4 servos in the pod which results in the slimmer wing airfoil and optimal construction. The ballast tunnel on the bottom of the fuze can add weight to the model for better performance in the windy conditions. The aileron horns are placed externally but the fuze is shaped specifically to reduce the drag and allow for easy aileron pushrods access simultaneously.
The model features the complete accessories pack including the launch peg, control horns, torque springs for tails, pull wire and servo trays (for KST X08/MKS DS75K/HV75K/BMS101)
You can also specify to have the tails in a naked black carbon layup or in a colored glass layup. Both stab and fin may be mixed this way in any combination you wish.
