Default Xtreme F-16 1/6.75

Hey, has anyone flown or built the new 1/6.75 F-16 that SM has put out? I am interested in getting one, but I want to see if anyone has comments on it first.

Much appreciated....

Anyone else notice the F-22 sitting on the Tarmac? Is that possibly coming down the designer's pipe from Skymaster? I did a search and the dates are coming up 2006, etc. Maybe I just missed it. Will look around some more

?? This is the 1/6.75 size. I would guess a K80 to 140 max

This is a maiden voyage very well to fly! Besides taking off, the throttle stick is full, All voyages till landing the throttle flying in the whole journey is probably in 50~60%!

Looks like the perfect size for one person handling and big enough to still fly good without getting knocked around in the air. I wonder if the gear are as tough as the 1/6 version and can handle grass operations.

Looks real nice. It appears that SM put the rivet detail on it as well. For the size and price, its a heck of a deal.

Hi


I am about to pull the trigger on this one

Does it have openening canopy? What is your opinion regarding landing gear? I understand it is not made by Mr. Likai and it's Hidropneumatic, that is a good point...

Is it better a 100 or 140N turbine?

Best regards

Nuno
