The Carl Goldberg Falcon 56 was my first real "pattern" type airplane - at least insofar as its ability to do most of the aerobatic maneuvers that were common in the 1970s. Remember that 3-D was not even in the RC lexicon back in those days. Mine was covered in white and metallic purple Solarfilm and sported a Supertigre .46 engine (no muffler, of course). The only picture I have of it is in a double exposure with my 1969 Camaro; the pic at the right is of Goldberg's resurrection of it as the Falcon III.
