All molded foam construction with lots of detail and a very smooth finish, painted with matte paint. Total assembly time is about one hour due to the low parts count and beautiful fit. The 70mm fan includes an OUTRUNNER motor that provides lots of thrust for quick takeoffs with a strong climbout. The ducting is very clean giving the F-16 impressive speed, but in a model large enough for easy flight orientation. Battery changes are quick: just remove the canopy (it is held in place with magnets) and swap it out. Access to the 70mm fan unit and 45A ESC is also very simple: just remove 2 screws and the entire middle section of the main duct can be removed. This is great for those who want to hop this one up or simply need easy access for maintenance and blade balancing.
The main landing gear are installed without using any tools and only one allen screw installs the nose wheel steering. Model can be flown either off a runway with the included landing gear or it is easily hand launched. Flight times are about 5 minutes using the included 4 cell 2100 mAh LiPo battery. Landings are quite slow due to the large lifting body shape of the F-16. Bring it in with the nose high and it will slow to a walk. Includes 5 pre-installed servos. Requires a 4 channel radio.
