HSD f-16 105mm 8s power system maiden

Here's my HSD 105mm f-16 take off and landing video. This was shot w an iPhone so this is all my camera guy got. This jet is awesome, the size is very impressive. Everyone at the field kept saying they couldn't believe it's foam! There was issues with the esc on a 12s set up so installed a new HSD 8s set up. She comes with all the mixing installed including a stock gyro. Everything worked perfectly and the gyro held this thing rock steady. Sounded great! Looked great! Handled rock solid and smooth as glass in the air! I used recommended throws and cg and t was perfect. She came in rock solid for landing and slowed down really slow for a perfect touchdown!!! Thumbs up! I will be ordering another one of these!

Nice job! I love the PVMAC field, hope to be there for Big Jolt again this year.

Nice smooth takeoff and landing. Looking forward to some more flights on the 8S system.

Thanks, I am looking into a better camera etc so I can capture the whole flight and we could see the thing In the air! As you can see it was cloudy and very dark, the camo works very well!

The freewing is the best f-16 in its class! I have the grey and the thunderbird version and fly them just about everytine I go to the field. Landing the FW does take getting used to. This HSD f16 is huge and very inpressive, the gyro made it very stable and made it easy to fly. I love my freewing f16 and this HSD is a serious step up! Landing it was non eventful almost too easy.

I haven't tried the 12s but I just may leave as is, but who knows the 12s may just be a rocket! We'll see, the 12s may be more speed but with a heavier set up.

There was an issue w the esc, eager to fly I installed the 8s system. It flew on the 8s but I prefer the 12s.

They fixed the issue, all HSD f16's are shipped with the problem fixed and ready to roll. I suggest getting the 12s version.

Which of the two is easier to land, the 90 or 105? I'm feeling a little reserved about the 90 on 6s - underpowered, and feeling like 12s 105 might be too much wing loading for me to feel comfortable landing. So for me, I'm really asking, between 8s 105 and 6s 90, can you describe the difference in how they both land. How about grass takeoffs/landings, for both?? thanks for your input.

Wing loading of the 105mm is actually lower than the 90mm I think. Depends a little on how heavy the batteries are on either one.
