Hobby Lobby F-16 - 80mm 8 Blade Fan!

28-1/3" wingspan, 43-1/2" long, 160-3/4 sq. in. wing area, 35 oz. flying weight. This is a super scale rendition of the USAF F-16 and includes all the quality parts for flying success. The ducted fan unit has a diameter of 80mm and the impeller has 8 dynamically balanced blades. The included Outrunner brushless motor has a Kv of 2600 and is a perfect compliment to the fan. To complete the power unit a 45 amp speed control is provided.

The first thing that you will notice when you open the box is the high level of detail. There are many injection molded plastic parts like the inlet scoop, scale landing gear legs, gear doors and wheels. The fins on the rockets and missiles are hard plastic, much more durable and better looking than the molded foam on many jets. The detail that you would expect from a display model, but this one flies, and flies beautifully.

Jason,

Beautiful detail on the F-16 both on the ground and in the air. You make it look outstanding. Nice work.

John

Love the plane, always interested in jets and a scale "model" jet is even better.

looks like a pretty heavy landing at the end? what all did you damage?

The left wing tipped down and hit pavement with bits of white and black trailing off the back.

I love the detail on top, but hate the cheater "vents" on the bottom. Kind of defeats the purpose of the scale looks for me. I wonder if you can cover that up and maintain effectiveness by adding ducting and more power. Otherwise it looks awesome.

No damage. It took off one of the missiles, but they are attached with magnets and are designed to be removable. Glad you guys like the video.

Thanks,
