PRICE SLASHED - Byron's Originals F-16 Fighting Falcon DF Kit NIB

The Byron F-16, know for it's super "trainer" type flight characteristics, was a great first time ducted fan jet for the person wanting to get into jets. It wasn't known for high speed, although 110 mph was pretty common for them to fly, but the slow flight was great. They were able to slow down to just above a walking pace for landing and with a nose high attitude, landings could be made and the roll would only be a few feet. One powered by an OS 77DF and turning the Byron fan unit produced about 14 pounds of thrust. That yields about a 1 to1 thrust to weight ratio as the completed plane weighs just under 14 lbs. Byron Original's quit producing model airplanes when Byron Godsperson the owner and founder died, These kits are hard to find.
Spanning 48 inches with a length of 73 inches, this is by no means a small model.
Watch one fly:

This is a complete kit with all parts still in the factory plastic bags. Fiberglass fuselage and styrofoam core flying surfaces. This kit has become a popular large F-16 for conversion to e-power.
Here's a typical thread from RCGroups: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ht=byrons+f+16
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_7787721/tm.htm
The package includes a NIB Rossi .91 DF motor and tuned pipe system. Also included are the optional external fuel tanks and Sidewinder missile kits. Rhom-air retracts and the Byron's retract adapter kit are included. This is the high end offering of the F-16 from Byron Originals with every option that was offered.
It is an incredible buy at my asking price. The Falcon ships in four factory provided cartons and I only want the actual shipping costs paid for by the buyer.

ASKING $575.00USD + Shipping (actual cost)
If paying with PayPal add 3.5% to the total. Thanks for looking.
