Now that is great video! It's easy to get F-16 fever with the 141% size isn't it Hans!
Can't wait til I get mine back out. And you're are getting heavier all the time...37 oz. But this design will handle ALOT of weight and never even bother it.
Getting close to my weight division!

Beautiful. I'v forgotten how nice your F-16 looks. And how big too . Ever think of doing an Isreli version with the fuse fuel tanks?

Hi! WOW! Congratulations on your first flight with this new plane. That is a super cool video, great job! Man, I agree with J, it is easy to get F-16 fever at that size! That thing looks so neat in the air, I am very impressed with how it floats so well at low speeds. Even at that weight it's a floater. Great job again with the build and piloting.
May I ask you a question? I have a motor capable of about 220 watts. What is the largest size F-16 of your design that you or anyone else thinks would fly really well with about 220 watts? The motor and battery that make the 220 watts weigh about 8.8 oz. together. Do you think that could fly something like a 130% version pretty well? I'd like to build one a little bit bigger than the 100% size, but I don't think my motor and batteries could handle the 141% version and give very good performance Thanks so much!
Man, I'm gonna watch that vid again later, it looks like it flies so well! I like how you go vertical right after take off! That was pretty rockin' if I don't say so myself. You are such a great pilot, going ballistic as a first maneuver during the maiden! Too cool. Thanks for posting the video. I like the background electronica as well.

Yes, a 130% size must be good for 220 watts.

Itīs fun for my son to film this 141% F-16C.
.. and fun for me to fly.

Iīve got a long and nice phone call from the southern part of Germany, today.
The man on the phone (his name is Edi) has just done his maiden flight with his 141% F-16. His english isnīt so good. Thatīs why he searched for my phone number, but heīs reading in this forum.

"Edi, welcome in our club!!"

The following video is for BG J (the file can be a download during his packing action and may give him a nice break!!) Itīs nothing special, but itīs a different flying area and the download will take a while. Enough time for a coffee.


use : [Kostenlos] right/down in the window and
wait this counting 60 seconds.
fill in the three letters you can see on the screen
and start a 65Mb download, if you like to see our Sunday Flight video.
You can close the two windows, when the download starts.

Hey my friend! Thanks for that information, I'm glad to hear that. I'm pretty psyched to build one of these, I'll just have to decide what size. I guess that space is pretty limited for me up in NYC, so I might have to go with the 130% version. I'd imagine that is still as really nice size though! Hopefully it'll be matched pretty well to that 220 watt system as well.
I might start on that after I get done with the Mig-21 up there.
Thanks for the help. I'm glad that you and your son had lots of fun up there filming and flying your Falcon!

I had problems too, my computer locked up while downloading. But it has locked up 3 times in the last couple of months so I'm taking it in for a checkup. It certainly needs it with an idiot operating it!
I'll try to download it again after I get it overhauled.

Iīll find a better place for uploading this big file. Jan-Henrik has cut down a ~10 minutes flight, down to a 4 minutes video in high resolution.
Itīs only for F-16 freaks, who like to see airshow speed.

I'm an f-16 freak and I like speed! LOL. Really though, I'm looking forward to the vid. I tries to download the other one but it didn't work for me either. I can't wait to see this one! I've been watching that other one like crazy, I can't wait to build one of these!
Mar 07, 2007, 07:36 AM
Or am I...
Thats odd. I could download the file no problem. Nice vid. I love the lake.

Thank you Adriel! Itīs our river. The dry tree on the left was burning during a tornado and thunderstorm ~10 years ago. Iīve never seen something like that before!

Here is a link to Jan-Henrikīs video on an American Hosting place.
Now, the bits and bytes are over the ocean!


Does it work?
