If Extreme_RC is right HP will be selling what they have in stock and won't be able to restock. He has been talking to the manufacturer of the foam parts, so I would stock up while you can. A phone call to Hobby People might clarify the subject, (but I bet they just got what they got and we otter stock up!).

Glad I have a 4 pack :-) By the way US customers can use code: HPCUSTOMER to get 10% off orders of $59.99 At least that is what the paper says in the last box I received, expiration date is 2/28/2015

Maybe P3 will buy the molds, you guys over there may be lucky still For us downunder it sounds like the end of an era, the F16 was about the best 70mm builders kit ever, I think I will have to keep a couple aside as I was planning on building one again this year anyway...

Interesting rumor to spread around.

Not exactly a rumor when the info comes from someone who talks directly with the manufacturer, and was one of the very first to pioneer the mods we all have employed and enjoyed.
So, I guess you think we will always be able to get the EF-16 for under $50, or that the kit will be available in perpetuity? Dream on! Like I said, glad I have a spare.

I bet more guys learned to fly jets on this kit than any other kit ever....sad to see it go.they would be crazy not to keep it going.

Sign of the times, its costly to shoot molds and I know HTG hasn't shot the molds on the old 90mm for a long time as they have to do volume and then sit on piles of foam parts in a warehouse...sales are low on toys/hobbies world wide so no one wants to risk having 20K+ sitting in foam I suppose.

That will really suck if this kit goes away. I got my first in 2007 or so and another one in 2010 or 2011 that I am still flying stock. These jets really do fly well stock on a 3s 2200mah.
