It's about time.....
Finally, a manufacturer takes a serious stab at doing a proper F-16 with greater then 1:1 thrust out of the box. It's the "Mustang" of jets with most # produced and sold to the most countries in the world, therefor biggest market potential. Atta boy FREEWING!
Since it's not in production yet, perhaps Freewing will consider suggestions on schemes:
or Other high visibility schemes WITHOUT black (to keep foam from bubbling)
NO grey air superiority schemes please - with its sleek shape and fast speed, the F-16 would be very hard to see during flight.
ps. The landing in the video is so smooth and scale with nose held high. Ahhh.....

Thanks for starting this thread. I have been searching for a 90mm F-16 and this one looks to fit the bill. I agree that afterburner lights and reliable electronics and retracts would make it irresistible. Definitely will be following this thread.
