F-16 Falcon V2 64mm EDF Jet - (Plug-N-Play) upgraded

F-16 has been upgraded to a new design. New items include easy screw on wings and a 11 blade EDF fan with larger motor and ESC. The F-16 V2 remains a fun to fly, predictable EDF jet but now sounds much better and is much easier to assemble. While the airframe is very "floaty" and easy to land on the updated landing gear, the plane has plenty of thrust from the new 11 blade fan. The brushless EDF power system puts out slightly more thrust than the weight of the plane. The maneuverability of the RocHobby F-16 is one of the many things that make this RC EDF jet a blast to fly. With nylon hinges, a brushless 2840-KV3900 motor, 11 blade fan, 40A ESC, and 5 servos already in place, this Receiver-Ready replica of the famous F-16 Falcon can be flight ready very quickly.

SPEED TIP - FOR THOSE WHO FEEL THE NEED FOR SPEED

If you really want to have fun with this F-16 V2, do not put the drop tanks and under wing missiles on the jet. We also tried removing the landing gear and related parts. The speed and performance difference was amazing. While not unlimited vertical, this jet has more vertical than most any stock jet in this configuration. We also used the outermost hole in the aileron servo horn and inner most hole in the aileron control horn. This made the F-16 ultra maneuverable and gave it a ridiculously fast roll rate. There is enough power for super easy hand launches in this configuration. If you like a fast and maneuverable belly lander, try this configuration. We love it.

NEW UPDATES

The F-16 power plant has been upgraded to a more powerful 64mm 11-blade ducted fan with up to 800 grams of thrust. In addition the ESC has been upgraded from a 35A to a Predator 40A ESC. We now recommend running a 2200 3S LiPo pack in this EDF jet. The wings are now easy to assemble and remove since they use the latest glueless assembly. The foam has been upgraded to a more durable EPO. While EPO is never as smooth as EPS, we are very impressed at the "smoothness" of this EPO foam. Lastly, the two elevator servos have been separated and now use a Y adapter for connection to a single elevator channel. We recommend removing the Y cable and plugging each elevator servo into a separate channel (may require servo extensions depending on your RX location). This allows each half of the elevator to be separately subtrimmed and perfectly centered for even throws. This setup allows more precise control in loops, immelmann turns, rolls, and inverted flight.

FEATURES:

  • 280mm carbon fiber spar inserted through the fuselage and main wing
  • Uses four inner-hexagon screws instead of glue for improved main wing set and landing gear installation
  • Improved main wing set and landing gear installation. This optimizes structure integrity and reduces assembly time
  • More powerful 64mm 11-blade ducted fan with up to 800 grams of thrust
  • 2840-KV3900 brushless motor
  • Five 9g servos
  • 40A ESC
  • Designed with EPO foam which creates a stronger, impact-resistant plane
  • Environmentally friendly water-based paint minimizes blistering from sun
  • Pre-installed, new designed control horns allows for more throw
