looks nice! According to this site:
High density EPO, wingspan 878mm, length 1306mm
both 4s and 6s capable. empty weight (aka, without battery) 1400-1450 g
up to almost 100 mph with 6s pro setup
retract looks like Freewing 70mm F-104, battery compartment also can hold 6s 4000mah.
Not flying elevator though. Still a beautiful scale model.
wingtip missile rail coated with plastic for durability

Looks good to me! Put the 6s 2200kv CS10 in it like in my Yak and I'm sure it will go like crazy! I like the decals aren't pre-applied. I wonder if it will also ship in a T-Bird scheme like most F-16s.

It looks like they have an inrunner setup too with a 80amp esc... looks like the same landing gear has the 70 millimeter f-104.

At least the 70mm one has better front struts than the 90mm maybe for grass operation... The 90mm sucked on grass.. It looks like there is upgrade for struts??? Stock looks to come with chicken legs?? New 9gm servos?? Something to consider for the stocking...

I guess we will see. The third photos shows shock absorbing struts below the fuse photo.

6s 4000 may be heavy like the other 70mm selections but if so, maybe great flight times for sure!

Maybe also easier to fly than the 104.

Stock landing gear is just like F104, 3mm wire coated with plastics. Shock absorbing legs are optional but not stock

I wish they did a full flying stab on this, the horizontal tail looks off to me otherwise it looks really awesome.

Yes, the metal struts are available as upgrade option. I highly suspect those can be applied on 70mm F-104 directly.

I don't believe this 70mm F-16 can hold the 4000mah battery like the 70mm F-104. I believe they are targeting at different audience and level experience.

I am sure. The 70mm F-16 is just a beginning.

Hey Antholy... I hope to see more lighter 90mm Jets that fly well on 6s stock like the Venom..
