F-16C Falcon Thunderbirds 90mm from Freewing Model

Details

The new High Performance Freewing version of the F-104 features a 90mm 9-blade turbine, a powerful 1900Kv brushless inrunner motor and an ECs 130A. It offers more acrobatic abilities and provides more power in flight. This new combo is designed for the common 6s 5000mah lipo battery size used in several other Freewing jets. Freewing worked for over a year to design an F-16C that any RC pilot would be proud to own. After 200+ test flights, we believe this is the best foam PNP scale F-16 in the world today.

The F-16C is a single-engine multirole fighter aircraft originally developed for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. The F-16C has key features including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system helps to make it a nimble aircraft. The F-16C has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and 11 locations for mounting weapons and other mission equipment. In addition to active duty U.S. Air Force, Air Force Reserve Command, and Air National Guard units, the aircraft is also used by the USAF aerial demonstration team, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and as an adversary/aggressor aircraft by the United States Navy. The F-16 has also been procured to serve in the air forces of 25 other nations.

Freewing's 90mm F-16C offers unique features not seen before in a foam F-16 such as scale operating landing gear CNC machined from durable 6061 aluminum, completely removable surfaces, and a pre-installed LED afterburner. Other scale details like a tinted canopy with plastic detailed cockpit, a complete navigation light package, and injection molded details like its "bird slicers" and accurate exhaust nozzle "turkey feathers" set this model apart from other foam F-16s. The F-16C's included armament set also features a new detachment design. Thin plastic clips allow quick and convenient removal of the weapons from the pylons, and the pylons from the wings. Magnets and glue are no longer needed! Change your loadout easily in seconds! We recommend flying without the pylons and weapons for the initial flights.

A KIT+ version is also available for pilots who want to install their own power system. The model is designed for versatility, and for future upgradability it is designed to CG with two 4s 4000mah 40c batteries without any modification to the battery bay, if a pilot wants to install an 8s capable motor/fan/ESC.

Intended as a "Scale Plus" flyer, the Freewing F-16C excels in scale maneuvers like slow high alpha, tight banked turns, and stability throughout its flight envelope. It has a long glideslope considering its weight, and its landing attitude will be familiar to those who have flown the Freewing Stinger 90. The Freewing F-16C cruises at 50% throttle and we measured an average top speed of 90mph in level flight after a slight dive. With mixed throttle, a 6s 5000 mAh 50c battery gives 3-4 minutes of flight, like other Freewing 90mm jets. With its scale landing gear, lights, loadout and other details, the Freewing 90mm F-16C will be the gem of any RC pilot's foam jet fleet.

Features:

  • Large scale electronic ducted fan RC jet sporting an accurate "Thunderbirds" livery
  • NEW! High Performance version which includes a 9-Blade factory balanced EDF with metal housing and a powerful 3672-1900KV inrunner motor for realistic jet turbine-like sound
  • NEW! 130 Amp Hobbywing ESC with 8A UBEC
  • Composite fan blades combined with metal EDF housing ensure AMA compliance (the fan blades themselves are NOT metal, so there are no flying restrictions - PNP only)

  • Sequenced gear doors provide added realism and reduced drag
  • Removeable wings, stabilators, vertical stabilizer, and nose cone for easy transport and compact storage
  • Machine screws and brass threaded inserts are used to attach the wings for a secure fit and longevity
