The SALE is over.
The above link is still active but the price is now $99.

That's still a really good value. I paid 99 several years ago and consider it money well spent.

Oh well, $99 isn't bad at all for this bird! Thinking about getting two or three more and painting them in different schemes. You gotta get a vide of yours sometime...everyone LOVES video, lol. No pressure of course

Hi Chris. Nice to meet you. WELCOME to WattFlyer!

You're right, I should change the thread title.
They sit at $119 most of the time. For most sale events they drop them down to $99.

She's a rock solid EDF for sure. I put two batteries through mine just yesterday.

RDD,
I'd say go ahead and build the Starmax JAS-39 Gripen. It flies and lands slower than the f-16. Plus, she's paid for and receiver ready!

You know Tom, I never really thought about getting another one for myself. I started this thread as a PSA.

If I ever hear that they are being discontinued I'll scoop up one or two for sure!

As you guys know, I'm a big fan of the Phase3 F-16. This little guy cemented my love for EDFs.


The latest and greatest sale:

BAM!! - $69.

How about $34.99 again and of course it's too late in the month for me to do anything about it and I missed seeing it last time
Par for the course of course

hey dh,
This kit is very bash-able. I have read where folks use a custom motor/df combo that uses a 4S battery.

Just search youtube for "Phase 3 EF-16". Most folks describe their motor/battery setup in their description. Then you can do further research from there.

Please call me John. I came up w/ Max2112 when I thought you were all internet predators after me Lucky Charms!!

Have you flown the Phase 3 F-16 before? They are awesome birds man! Definitely a steal for the money and they can hold up to almost anything...especially if you silk it.
