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.

Subbed, Good find!
I'm all over this one. Love the sound as well. Hopefully they won't dumb the power down to cut costs.
