I got this one as an "airframe only" kit for $129







The manufacturer is listed as "Sky Flight Hobby", and occasionally as LX or Lan Xiang.

The kit version is fine for me, as I really don't need all the extra junk motors, junk fans and junk escs

Will strip out all that thrust vectoring stuff, plastic nozzles, plastic mounts etc as well, and as a result lighten it up as much as possible.

Power setup will the twin WeMoTec Mininfans EVO 70mm on 6S.

Here's a couple of videos of how mine flies :

I got the F-16C from MRC a couple of weeks ago, very simple and straightforward to put it together...





She's a bit smaller than my Tam F-16 (which is 12-th scale) and a bit larger than my old all molded JePe F-16.

On this one the wingspan is 102.3 cm and the length is 152.2 cm, whereas the real one has a 9.96m wingspan at a 15.06m length


so the model is in the ~ 1:10.2 scale range.
