The Fieseler Fi-156 Storch (German for Stork) was a German STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) aircraft that was created in 1936 and largely used during the Second World War in all theaters. It was designed as a reconnaissance, liaison and air-ambulance aircraft. No other aircraft could fly as slow or land and takeoff in such small spaces.
Virtually nothing about a Storch is streamlined, windows stick out everywhere giving an excellent view of the battlefield. It was a purpose-built, short takeoff and landing (STOL) aircraft which, with a bit of headwind, could become airborne in less than 200 feet, and when its low landing speed was combined with a strong headwind, the Storch appeared to land vertically, and sometimes looked like it was flying backward.
The Storch is an excellent aircraft to build as all balsa and wood components are laser cut to fit together in smoothly. Modelers will enjoy putting together this kit from scratch and ending up with an impressive aircraft to fly. All parts and a hardware pack (screws, fittings, etc) are provided as well as a cowl and windows and wheels to provide that realistic look. It comes with working leading edge slats and flaps to provide that real slow speed handling.
You will need to provide a power system and all electrics (battery, servos, TX, RX). This model is designed to run with an electric setup of a 2414 to 2820 Brushless motor and 40A ESC running a 10-12” propeller. It can also be set up with an IC engine but you will need to modify the build.
It’s time to get building with this iconic STOL plane from the WWII period, the Fieseler Fi-156 Storch.
