  I don't see how they are a copy

The Falcon rig is a standard Marconi rig that most recreational sailboats use. The FlatEarth rig is is a variation of the old sprit rig with a modern flexible sprit. Another way to think of the FE rig is to compare it to the most modern square head rigs used on windsurfers and catamarans.

I'd like to see a Gnarlydog review of the Falcon rig. I dare you to ship him one!

In my experience the FlatEarth rig is the best I've used that can be bought in the one meter size, but I personally prefer to use lug rigs with free standing masts.
