So if done in China I approximate $75 for electric conversion.

I have seen just one RC F-16 been painted in the correct colors, this was a guy who did it himselves. Of course there may be others than I`m aware of..
And one 1:6 I`m currently buliding was also ment to be in yellow/grey Tiger, but I was disapponted as I honestly mean spending the amounts we do to get things correct, we expect that to be the case? This was not FEJ, but another major actor in this game.
Anyway, I have sendt the correct color-codes to FEJ to make things right not just for me but everyone else too.
These are: FS 36375, 33538, 35237 and 37038.
And here is a picture of the full-size, the one and only painted in this scheme. So I must say I look forward to see it when it gets here :-)

Someone who know how many servos is required? I can`t find any online manual on the model, perhaps it`s not released yet or it comes with the model..
One or two servos on each tail-surface?
So I`m thinking of ordering servos for it, good to know wich servo/where, ahead of ordering.
And yes, I`ve finally ordered electrical gear for it, but will get info when FEJ have it ready. Anyway I think it`s worth the wait.

As far as I know, Ali, James and Ken Chen are the only ones that have received and are currently flying this plane. I ordered mine July 31, and I am still waiting.

That was a long time waiting.. 7 to 9 weeks they told me, but luckily I have my hands full at the moment.
Just F-16 for me, I have two from before. And the rule thats says the bigger the better, surely seems to be a amen on this one.
It looks extremely harmonic...

Is that really so?
Strange since they said those 9 weeks.. Never been so impatient.

David:

Your F16 has been done, but waiting the new bigger landing gears to be ready with bigger wheels and new tires.

There are some other F16 are ready and wait for the gear too.

PS: Yours should be ready for shipping this week.

Thanks
James

James by far your customer service is what's pulling me back towards FEJ. As well as your companies obvious improvements in getting it right...keep up the good work.

hornetmex,

This is it and it will be powered by a JC Mammoth. I did a 1/6 scale Falcon in the same scheme. This larger bird should really present well in the air.

I like that a lot!! Great in the air! As we age, they need to be bigger and brighter!! Nice job David.
