Fieseler Fi-156 Storch was the most advanced in terms of STOL performance, by far. A fixed slats ran along the entire leading edge of the long wings, while the trailing edge, inspired by earlier 1930s Junkers aircraft wing control surface designs, including the ailerons, was a hinged and slotted flap. The wings could be folded back along the fuselage, allowing it to be carried on a trailer or even towed slowly behind a vehicle. The long legs of the landing gear contained oil and spring shock absorbers that compressed about 18" (450mm) on landing, allowing the plane to set down almost anywhere. Special wing enabled the Storch to fly as slow as 32 mph (50 km/h), take off into a light wind in less than 150' (45m), and land in 60' (18m). This highly prefabricated kit belongs in the "Super Scale Competition" models category. Once built, the airframe is extremely light and clean but still able to withstand the high loads and stresses associated with aerobatic flight. The manufacturer uses the latest construction techniques including Laser CNC cutting to achieve high strength and low weight. Each part and every detail are meticulously made.

The Storch will probably always be most famous for its role in Operation Eiche, the rescue of deposed Italian dictator Benito Mussolini from a boulder-strewn mountain top near the Gran Sasso, surrounded by Italian troops.
