Default Phase 3 F-16

Hello all,

After reading all the good reports of the Phase 3 F-16 I purchased a kit from Hobby People. Attached are the photos of my F-16 in Colorado ANG Minute Men colors. 70mm fan on four cells 2200 mah.

Enjoy the photos!

Gene

Default F-16 Minute Men

Hello dahawk, I just finished the F-16 two days ago. It's still a virgie. Looks like I may have to wait a few months to fly it, once the glacier retreats. Any other EDF's in your fleet?

N,

I have 3 in the 50mm JPowers/Skyangel series: F-16, T-45 and the new Katana with a Dons Wicked 4800kv setup. Cheap and are also alot of fun. Ironically, for speed, the Jpowers Rare Bear from the warbird series is faster than all three.

Headed up that way for Christmas. Mother in Law lives in Mequon. Brrrr

Pack your parka- Temps should be in low 20's, but sunny. I have the 50mm A-4 and Mig-15 along with 10 other EDFs from 64mm to 80mm fans. The A-4 is a real rocket that is a blast to fly, the Mig can be a real handful with some strange stall/spin surprises. Have a nice holiday with the cheese heads!!!

Brick, there are a couple of very extensive threads over on RC Groups covering the Warbird and EDF series from Jpowers:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...48808&page=153

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...71681&page=577

Generally, they are all about the same size. In the 50mm EDF's the T-45 is the easiest flyer while the F-16 is probably the fastest.In the Warbirds, the Rare Bear is the fastest. In fact, faster than the edf's IMO. The Rare Bear on 4S will do 100+.

Didn't want to hijack this thread as I'm a big fan of the Phase3 F-16. Hobby People was offering the kit for like $26.00 the other day. Almost plucked one to have another airframe.

Now, back to your regularly schedued program...

Love that plane stand. Where did you find it or did you make it? That is the perfect size for my planes in my fleet. Everything I have used or found is to big for most of my planes. Got to have yours.
Oh buy the way your Phase 3 looks very good as well

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.
