They're epoxied to the tailerons. The control horns' studs were cut shorter so they still had a couple 'threads' on them but not so long that they would go through the taileron; I cut out a square in the covering and epoxied them in.

Hi Glenn,

Thanks for posting a build thread for your F-16. Any chance you will post the parts specs for your Miss Bud, including the ESC, Fan, Motor, Batteries, etc?

I have a stock P3 F-16 and have wanted to build a new screamer for some time.

Thanks,
David

I've posted the specs before but I guess I forgot to include them in this thread; I used a CC 125 ESC, HET 6904 fan, ARC 28-48-1 (special version of a 28-47-1) w/ a custom heatsink, TPX V2 3300 5s, CC BEC, HS-65MG's, AR6000 Rx w/ DX-7.

Thanks for the info, Glenn.

Do you have any thoughts on ARC's 28-58-1 and HET 6904 Fan in this airframe?

Dave from ARC asked me if I wanted to test a 28-58-1 but I declined because the kv is too low for my taste. The motor is on the heavy side, and you would need 5s or maybe even 6s to get similar performance to a 47-1 on 4s.
