Very nice looking bird!! I was going to use my 2w-20 in mine, but I lost it due to a radio failure a few months ago. Drove the shaft and bearing right out of the back plate. Had to go with a 2w instead. Maiden tomorrow I hope.......

Thanks.

I got home to late last night to finish them up.

I wish i could get the main wheels to nest a little further down. It is not to bad just wish they would down just a bit more.

And i should have instl the nose wheel thru the top using the top mount plate. It would have looked a lot cleaner.

I moved it way back. About 11/2 to 2 inches in front of the servos.Balances easy with a 2650 and will balance with a 3300 pushed farther back in the battery bay. (haven,t tried that yet)

Oh ok... "easier" because you did not have the nose gear steerable and also put it ahead of the ducting. Yep, no steering makes it easier for sure... and not into the ducting also a big gain of 'easiness'.

It looks ok ahead of the ducting and most people would never even think of where they really are on real F-16's.
Steering would not really be that hard to add actually. It might be "fun" to control with no steering! Not sure....

That depends on how much modding your up too. A 2200-2600 shouldn't be toooo much work.

I've put up to a 6s, 30c, 3200mAh pack in it.
