    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Congratulations Tomas. A super maiden!

    I was to maiden my JL F-16 today (MW54). However, the weather changed to very low cloud with a persistent heavy drizzle. Very frustrating.

    If you would, could you show your solution to the nose gear door actuation? I must admit that I’m struggling to find a solution.

    Best regards,

    Ah yes. I’ve read the credits this time. Congratulations Lasse. Still a great maiden!

    Couldn’t quite make out if you had any flap deployed for landing?

    Thanks for the link to the build pictures Tomas.

    The pictures look great. How about a few comments about the kit: fit, finish, quality of the wood, ease of assembly; and most importantly flight characteristics.

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Hi guys,

    some info about my JL F-16 1/8 scale

    The fuselage is very nice light and strong, the ply is lazer cut and have a good qualitet,the landing gear looks good and works. The wings have double carbon spars,
    the paint from the factory was β€œok”.

    Instruction,manual (whats that!!!) dont exist.

    Elevator I use 2 of JR DS 8511 servo.1 at each side
    Rudder JR DS 3328
    Aileron JR DS 3328
    I use Jettronics valve for the landing gear and doors.

    I must say the JL F-16 1/8 scale flys great with jet cat P-60 and most” importantly” easy to land.

    Without question this ARF kit is an outstanding value for the money..

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    yup..

    You might be able to stuff it in by carving away material from the mounting rails, but if you need more power than demonstrated in the video with the P-60, a Wren supersport or a p-70 would be better options.....


    All I ask is for a chance to prove that money can\'t make me happy......

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Hi Lasse...

    Nice pics of the high nose attitude landing....

    What kind of control throws are u using on the JL F16?

    Do u set and use the ailerons as flaps for the landing?

    There is a CG point on the full size plans that comes with the plane...is that CG position good enough for the first test flight?

    thanks..

    RE: JetLegend F-16 (1/8) Testflight

    Great pics, video and info Lasse! Congratulations on the successful maiden flight!

    Any other pertinent info or tips re the assembly/construction of the model would be appreciated by all of us on this forum. Could you tell us what CG and surface control throws you used for the flights and wheather you made any other modifications to it at all?

    I received my grey camo version with the stores/missile pack a few weeks ago and am about to make a start assembling it, very pleased with the quality and value for money so far. Am going to fit it with a Jetcat P70 kero, JR 8411 elevators, JR 3421 rudder, Hitec 5125 ailerons, Hitec HS80 on the nose steering and Jetronic valves to operate the undercarriage.
