Just got bitten by the jet craze over the summer and bought an F-16 during Black Friday. I got the Airfield F-16 Fighting Falcon in Nato Tigermeet colors.

Heres her Specs:
Wingspan: 780mm (30.7 in)
Length: 1230mm (48.5 in)
Drive System: 70mm Ducted Fan W/ Eflite BL15 Impeller
Servo: 5X 9g Towerpro Metal Gear high speed micro servos
Speed Controller: Exceed RC Volcano Series 60 Amp Brushless Speed Control
Battery: 14.8V 2200mah 30c Sky Lipo

She's not finished yet, but I have the wing, horizontal stab servos mounted and centered. Fan installed. All the control surfaces have been mounted as have the landing gear. She still needs a rx, the ESC and rudder servo mounted. I boogered up the finish on the top of her and the one wing and horizontal stab from glue and the cradle I had her resting on. But you won't be able to see that from the air.

Here is a current project I'm working on. I'm making my first model for the Clearview R/C Sim. The Simple Albatross by GPW.
