This Falco is being built with a very unusual set of ailerons and flaps. They were inherited from the Laverda factory. In addition to being all-metal, the aileron is one bay shorter and the flaps are one bay longer. Mr. Frati had forgotten about this and later remembered it. This design is the same as was used for the SF.260, so perhaps they are related.
