Default Tamjets EDF conversion kit for Y/A F-16

Have anyone used one of the inlet ducting converion kits for the Y/A F-16? or have any pic's?

I am thinking of using it on a Byron f-16 and wanted to see if it would work, but i can find any info or pic's

Thanks

Dave

Hey Tam,

Any reason why not? has it been tried before?

I'm going to go the EDF route, and was thinking that performance would benefit from some intake ducting?? pretty new to EDF.

Thanks

Ah, fair enough then....

Is there any other brand of F-16 that has intake ducting that might work? the Tamjet F-16 is about the same size but i don't know if it has a separate intake duct?

The Jet legend, f-16 is about the same as well.....

Thanks

yeah unfortunately all f-16's are not created equal! lol none of them even in same scale have interchangable ducting, matter of fact none of them except for tams F-16 have useable ducting for EDF even when using same plane. even yellow which has duct for 5inch gasser and could fit a turbax right into it, still has duct for slower moving air from old ic. so new edf higher rpm fan see lots of feed probs. Best bet is do it as cheater hole as it is and have fun with it, then maybe sell it out and go for something more scale. tell you the truth if you go byro in it anyway the E-byro runs so low an rpm the duct wont really make a big diff. and any ohter fan wont be very ideal in the big heavy byron F-16 anyway.

Thanks for the feedback, i gathered that it would be very lucky if one fitted straight in. i just received a PM from one of the members here on the forums has a byron f-16 and said that if you get the yellow f-16 ducting and split the intake at the front, you can spread it to match the byrons fuse. and it comes out as you said with the 5inch outlet to suit the byron fan.

As i am pretty new to EDF, what do you consider low RPM? most of the guys how have done the conversion are spinning the fan at around 19-21,000rpm.

Thanks

Byron f 16, Big yes heavy no mine is 11 lbs dry and would be less in edf version, they certainly are not the fastest df jets but it will fly manuvers that some other jets only dream of.

I have an intake for the byron F-16. It is intended for replacing the Byron fan with a Dynamax or Ramtec with full ducting.
