    Overview

    The E-flite® F-16 Thunderbirds 70mm EDF jet is a scale replica of the iconic aircraft flown by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team. Like the full-scale airshow thriller, this F-16 has an incredibly wide performance envelope—from slow and stable high-alpha flight to amazing high-speed and vertical capabilities. At its core is a 6S-compatible brushless motor and a 70-amp ESC that are matched to a 12-blade fan to deliver an abundance of speed, thrust and a turbine-like sound. Factory-installed electric retracts with shock-absorbing struts make it possible to take off and land on a wider variety of surfaces–including grass—while keeping ground handling smooth and delivering a realistic jet experience. The composite reinforced EPO airframe is lightweight yet strong, and the digital, metal geared servos plus ball-link equipped pushrods provide precise control. And it all combines to deliver one of the easiest to fly, yet highest-performance and most capable, F-16 models ever!

    Video Overview

    Exclusive Technologies

    This is the first high-performance F-16 model equipped with exclusive Spektrum AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger jet. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch making this the easiest to fly F-16 model yet! And if you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and only AS3X will be active.

    High-Power EDF

    The 12-blade 70mm fan, high-RPM brushless inrunner motor and 70-amp ESC combine with your 6S 3200–4000mAh LiPo battery to deliver amazing vertical performance and an incredible speed range with virtually instantaneous throttle response. But what makes the experience truly rewarding is the fantastic sound produced by the power system—it's almost like a real turbine.

    Capable Gear

    The factory-installed landing gear features reliable electric retracts equipped with durable metal components and shock-absorbing struts that make it possible to fly from a wider variety of surfaces including paved runways and even grass.

    Durable Precision

    The composite reinforced EPO airframe is lightweight yet durable, and the factory-installed digital, metal-geared servos plus ball-link equipped linkages deliver crisp and precise control at every speed.

    Unmatched Maneuverability

    The F-16's unique design offers incredible handling through a wide flight envelope and speed range. It's capable of rock-solid high-speed flight so you can perform locked-in low-level flybys and aerobatic maneuvers including giant loops, point rolls and more, while also being capable of slowing down to deliver smooth and stable high-alpha flight and landings.

    Bind-N-Fly Completion Level Advantage

    This Bind-N-Fly® Basic model is equipped with an AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) receiver that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a larger and expertly tuned aircraft.

    If this is your first high-performance scale jet, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

    With SAFE Select features enabled, you get:

    Pitch and Bank Angle Limits

    • These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

    Automatic Self-Leveling

    • The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It's also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs and landings.

    Easy Switch Assignment—No Programming Required

    • The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any programming and takes just a few seconds.

    If you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.

    Appearance

    This is a great flying plane, second one I've owned. This one had a terrible fit between the canopy and fuselage and the nose gear won't come up after takeoff unless cycled a second time. Not good for a brand new plane.

    Almost Perfect

    Appearance

    Great model, flies wonderfully, fairly robust gear. I already have over 5 hours of in the air flight time on it. Only complaint was canopy had a scuff on it and the fit of it on the fuselage was rather poor, with a large gap on the left side between canopy edge and fuselage.
