F-16C Falcon Park Jet

Hi everybody, this is my contribution.
Last weekend Iīd designed and built my own F-16C, ws 77cm (30inc)
440g ready to fly with 3s1p kokam 1500 and typhoon 6/20, 7x4 apc sf.
Iīd maiden flight two hours ago. It was snowing but I couldnīt resist.

Here are the pictures, the videos and the plans.

Feel free and build this falcon if you want.
Only rule is to offer a picture of your F-16.

Greetings and happy flying

Hans-Joachim

Very nice work, Hans-Joachim! I never thought I'd see a simple to build F-16 Park Jet due to all it's complex wing/body curves, but it looks like you've found a great way to do it. And 440g is a nice light weight, too.

THANKS for sharing your work! I'm looking forward to seeing some of these built!

Wow Hans! Very cool! I'm going to have to build this one after my current F-16 project is built! The flight video looks awesome, it looks like it flies very well.

Thank you for the design and for sharing!

That is fantastic! I really admire your workmanship on a notoriously difficult fuse shape. And you seem to be fearless in terms of:

1. A low altitude maiden flight (!)
2. Enduring some pretty sad weather conditions. Nothing like a bit of icy rain to add to the adventure.

Great job!

Jack

Wow! About 15.5oz with a 28in wingspan! Thats amazing. No wonder it lands so slow. (I'm jealous) I fly with a 21in wingspan and AUW of 19-23oz. My landings look like controlled crashes compared to yours!

Good work!

Uh, Mr. B. I've seen video of you heaving an F/A-18 and I'm having trouble imagining what a school girl giggle would sound like coming from you.

I, personally have been tittering....
