Exceed products

I am looking at the Exceed F-16. Anyone have any experience with the brand or plane?

It's Nitroplanes/Raidentech's "house brand". Most are designed by Andy Chen. All look great and fly well. I have the 70mm F/A-18 and the F-4.

Also sold under "Starmax" brand by Hobby Lobby, etc.

Extensive info in the Foamy EDF forum on all these.

If Exceed (Nitroplanes) and Starmax (Hobby Lobby) are the same jet then I would buy the airframe only and stay far, far away from the RTF version. The BEC on the esc's are not good and will starve you edf motor, possible causing a crash. I have the HL one and it flew on the stock setup, with a castle Creations BEC installed. But not that fast: 65mph. Then I installed a Rclander edf unit and 60amp esc, and WOW...90mph.

IMHO get the airframe and put some good stuff in it and you will be much happier.
