Byron F16 W/ XPS FAN system


The F16 has flown 4times and is a very stable easy to fly jet. You can catch my first flight on YouTube, . If you watch the video you'll see that we had an issue with wheels. That problem was fixed with a little goop! It has a Turnigy 200amp HV speed control and I used 12s 6000ma batteries. Pulled around 125 amps (full throttle) I averaged 4 minutes flights with these batteries and proper speed control. The paint job could be better and the wings are monokoted. The fuse was striped and a white primer was used with a clearcoat. The Jet weighs 19lbs with batteries. The servos are spektrums and the retracts are spring air. I have new responsibilities and basically have too many planes with no time to fly. I would like to get $900.00 or best offer. To big to ship but would consider if buyer wants to pay. I would use grayhound for this

Only 4 minutes per flight? can larger batteries fit to lengthen flight times? Do the batteries get hot in the 4 mins? Great Model!

The batteries are 6000mah packs at 12s and I never went past 4 minutes but I do know that at full throttle in 4 mins. took all of 5000mah. I'm sure if you tried you could manage a 5 minute flight but that would leave very little left for another pass if you made a bad approach.
