Just curious what your altitude is where you are flying in Mexico?

Hello

I have got one kit of HSD F16 1800 MM foam.

please advise if I can use K85-G2 KINGTECH turbin engine or not? is it too heavy? how to adjust gravity balance?

Hi
The K85 has the same weight of the K60 therefore no change in CG. However the 85 will burn more fuel than the 60 and you should definitely be cautious and use wise throttle management in order not to over stress the F16 beyond its limits
Regards,

Well we would, but it is kinda hard to take you seriously after you conveniently left out the 100 class turbine part while bashing a company. Sooooooooo

I think top end on the K85 is too powerful for level flight, & not sure how the residual thrust will affect your landing speed although I think that the 16 will slow just fine. I can say that the HSD 16 does very nice high alpha flight, but with my K-60 Ive had some hairy moments transitioning back to forward flight at low altitudes. I will probably upgrade my P-60 in the future, but I already have my timer set to 3:30. I moved it up to 4min, but had no reserves for go arounds.
