Has anyone seen the new F-16 70 mm single axis vector thrust EDF that BP Hobbies is selling?

Check out the video, looks pretty fast

I bought one at the NEAT fair! It looks even better in person then in that video! Mine is in the Syracuse ANG scheme and has a cobra on the vertical stab. I was going to gut my Exceed F-18 for the Shulman fury fan but its been flying so well lately that I had to kill that idea. I guess my Phase-3 Falcon is going up on the shelf for a bit. That means I'll likely be using a 2w-20 setup. Anyone else have one of these yet? I can't start my build until after halloween as I am involved in a neighborhood project that's sure to scar a few children

U sure bout the 6s setups chrisper? The foam itself sure seems light enough. I was thinking 4s so it can make better use of the TV. How small of a 6s pack can the MB1 get away with? I have 2 6s 3700's from Rhino but these things are almost a pound each if not a bit more even.

Fw F16 Vtol

The fan that comes with this kit is a Freewing 64 mm fan like the one that comes with the f-15, F-35, anf Freewing L-39 and Talon. THis unit will not work in the F-16, I am not sure why they even put it in the kit.

VTOL Radio Settings

I have a Futaba 10CHP radio, does anyone know how to center the VTOL in the radio either when vectoring or in the off position. Right now I have the off position centered so that I can fly it like a rgular plane, when I throw it into vector the nozzle is not centered and is positioned or facing downwards. Chrisper27p

any more updates on this beauty??..

On rc-castle it says it has a 70mm fan in it.
You can also buy the plane only version incl servo's and upgrade it with a cyclone power motor and besc.

Looks good and the price is good, it seems...
Not many video's on youtube.. and would like to know more about the setup you guys use..
