Cool

Finally!!!!


Well after sanding, painting, sanding some more, not liking what I saw, painting again, sanding, painting, sanding, and then sanding again. It's finally done.

Guess I'll stick some 4g servos and a 10g outrunner in there to set some speed records!!!

p.s. I will be using Gary's hold down setup for this ride as it will be the easiest to get to the powersystem for switchouts. I saw Gary's and it held down real nice and tight!!!

whats the specs on this f16? It looks awesome and when you say 10g motor it must be small!

Kit? scratch build? plans?

Looks excellent!

I got the F16 kit from eflypower.com but its the same one you can get from HobbyPeople for 99 bucks.

I just went the extra mile by glassing the entire body, sanding, and painting the heck out of it. I plan to put the new ARC 1T motor in there as well as a 4S run and a 5S run with a 6904 EDF. Maybe a Wemo run in there for fun as well.

Looks good, it appears like you clipped the wing tips but didn't clip the LE too, so now the wing tip chord is longer than the original and/or scale size.

Heh I also clipped the horizontal stab. We'll see what happens I guess...



Thanks goes to TS because I screwed up my original tailerons!

Fly Boy,

Are you talkin' about the ARC 28/47/1? Do you know if have been any recent modifications to this motor?

very nice work! what will you gain by clipping the wings and stab? also can you explain a little on how you did your removeable lower fuse and fan unit? thanks.

looks great. I personally have yet to see an edf that has any speed.....without going to some enormous battery.

as soon as i find one...i am in.

so...if you can get this baby to do 100 mph on a standard 3 cell lipo....please let us know.

everytime someone shows up with an edf at the field.....i wind up dissapointed....not enough guts.

and i understand that it is not that easy to upgrade the powersystem...cause you are stuck with the diameter of the fan?

I've actually just got the 28-48-1 motors which are the newer versions. The length has been extended a tiny bit and I believe the motor ends up being about 200-300 higher Kv.
