Default Ceremark f-16 Electric?

You know, I was thinking how to hide the muffler/pipe on this bird for some time.
Last night I was setting up the speed control in my typhoon for lipos, and i thought to myself, geez I wonder if there is any potential to make a super fast electric conversion on the f-16? Nice clean nose.........mayby even a couple of those ram speakers that make the turbine sound.
Hmm....... i wonder...........

I was eyeballing the F-16 also but I'm not so sure the airframe is light enough. You will need to stuff some serious wattage in there and even with lipos you need to watch the weight. I'm not nay-saying but if you decide to do it I'll be curious to see how it turns out. If successful it would be mighty bad***. Forget the speakers, if you spin enough RPMs you'll make plenty of noise.

Link to short video, sorry no sound. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=543446 First pass from the left is full throttle, you can see the potential. The rest is 3/4 throttle.
