What is a fair price on a Yellow aircraft F16 that is RTF with a viojett and os91? Is it fully painted, has all servos(older futaba), retracts with brakes. Also included is a dx6i and ar7000. He is asking $350.

I can only assume this is an F-16A...depending on its conditions its probably a really good deal! If its an F-16C with scale gear its a steal!!

Doesnt have scale gear. This is it. Wings are not removable if that makes a difference.

Update:

I think this may be a bvm f16. It measures 69in in length and 44in in width which isn't even close to the yellow f16 dimensions. Are there any distinct features that label this as a BVM F-16?

Well... the picture is pretty small but the BVM F-16 was modeled after the F-16C. The horizontal stab and thin vertical fin base points to an F-16A...so the BVM is out. Seeing the bottom of the model and the hatch would help to narrow it down. The wings look a bit long (not scale) but it could be the camera angle. Looks good.

BVM does not use spring air gear. BVM has a different canopy hatch, the frame comes off with the canopy. I don't see the bolt in carry through spar in the hatch.

BVM is 70" x 46" WS

That is not a BVM fan.

Are they claiming it is a BVM?

Agree, it looks to be a Dynamax too! But if the asking price is $350.00 that is a fair price for everything.

That green look on the fiberglass is from Polyester resin which = Yellow Aircraft.

That Manual is for a BVM, but that is not a BVM Plane and the Ducted Fan is NOT a Viojett

For pictures of a BVM F-16 KIT, check out the one I sold
