funflyerf4, Great pics.!! Nice job with the cockpit and missiles. What/Whos pilot did you use??
I ordered the Cermark F-16 and should have it any day now. I plan on using a OS91FX and tune pipe and there custom retracts.
What Eng. are you using??
How do you like this F-16 so far??
Thanks.

TELL ME:

A very nice job on this! Would like to know if this is a fast airframe, or just about the same as the F-20 Krangke. Need a fast airframe that will also turn and accomodate Jett 60 power. Is the bottom scoop a real drag problem in your view? Your thoughts would be appreciated. My F-20 was flown 5-6 times and removed from service. Was so-so fast, nothing to write home about and did not like to pylon turn. Don't want to buy another expensive so-so! Thanks

You will need SJ-90L power for the F-16 - its a BIG bird. Not pylon fast - but hits the 120 mark usually.

(if you want something for the 60L engine, take a look at the Sweep 16 http://www.schwingrc.com/index2.htm )

rmenke,
I agree with Bob. I've flown the Kangke F20 with Magnum 52 and Jettstream muffler. Fastest was around 130mph. I'm building the Cermark F16 with their stock retracts and got the Jett90 at the nose. This plane is way bigger than the F20 so that Jett60 of yours will not do much I think.

Sure would like to hear how the Cermark F16 flies. Its a real nice looking plane but if its going to weigh 10 1/2 lbs, seems it'll need all you can get in the nose. Jett 90 looks to be a perfect match, JMO.
Keep the post coming, I'm getting really close to the order button .

lots of flight reports and build info on the F-16 thread here in extreme speed.

The plane flys extremely well. And good "90" will power it well. The Tower 75 and a honkin 60 with a pipe will be fine.

The plane builds around 9.5 lbs.

Just got the shipping fees from Cermark, there very reasonable at $19.95 for that size package.
Sure wish I could find one used that was nice. The 10 1/2 lbs they call for on the web site seemed a little heavy and would probably have to be groovin to lock in, but 9 1/2 lbs. isn't quite as bad sounding.

I just finished mine with an OS91FX up front with a MACS tuned pipe. Make sure you get the long header to clear the airframe. I was at the field the other day tuning it up, I am getting 12,500 with an 11x10 APC. Does anybody have suggestions for props, seems small but there is not much ground clearance flying off grass. Hopefully I will get pictures today.

There is typically enough room for a 12" dia prop. The 11x10 should work well. You can likely swap to a 12x8 which will run about the same rpm - pipe length will be about right.

I just got my Cermark F-16 the other day. I also plan on using a OS .91FX in mine, not sure what type of muffler or pipe set up I should use. Also using the Cermark custom retracts and 3-servos.
I`m sure I be asking alot of questions when I start building it.

"R/C Foolish"-pic`s. of your jet and pipe set up would be good.
R/C Foolish-also, my F-16 manuel was update to now put the Thottle servo in the tail cone with the RX batt.
Did you place your Thottle servo and Batt. in the tail area inside the exhaust cone??
What size batt. are you using??
Thanks.

Big Daddy,

Didn't get any pictures of it yet. Yes, the throttle servo is in the back. Make sure you use the carbon fiber nyrod to make the throttle rod. This way you don't have to worry about it stretching in the heat. I am using a 4000Mah Duralite with a 6V regulator. The battery is on the back edge of the tail. I didn't have to add any lead to balance, it was right on a little nose heavy. Make sure the gear are down and tank is empty. I balanced at 15" out from the root. I had to play with my nose wheel today, don't forget to make a solid flat spot and change the set screws to allen head screws. They need to be very tight, I also needed to shim the brass axle assembly to give me a little more ground clearance. Played with props today, 11x10 APC gave me 11,400. 11x7 gave me 14,300. I am going to try a 12x6 next time to the field. Overcast and drizzly here today, very low flying cieling so I decided not to maiden. Maybe next week.

How much elevator thow is needed, I don't want her to snap!

Yes, the motor mounts directly to the wood. Make sure you use good bolts and locknuts.
