Default Byton F-16 turbine mod

Hello all;

Have a Byron F-16 with Rossi .91/ducted fan setup and would like a turbine conversion done.
What turbine and mods should be done?
All suggestions/tricks/advice welcome.
Thank you in advance,
Harold Torres

Hi Harold,

I've never seen the conversion 1st hand but I believe I have 2 local guys in Western Canada (1 for sure) that have done this mod with a J600R. I'll PM you an email address for a fellow by the name of Phil Meredith. Hopefully he can help you out and send you some details and photos...

Cheers!
Kelly

I think the best way to install a turbine in a Byron F-16 is a WREN in the tail cone. Less than two lbs weight with 14lbs thrust. No duct, not extra weight. Plane will balance easy with turbine hardware near nose.

I am planning that. Let me know.

That's not a Byron, looks like the stock setup for the SM.

You are right, but catch the idea

Harold, muchacho no te rajes la cabeza y vuelalo con el Ducted Fan. Buscate una pista (como la de Hormigueros) que tenga la grama bajita, o sino vete a Sabana Seca y despegalo desde allĂ* en brea Ese avion no vale la pena ni el $$ convertirlo. Pero es muy divertido como Ducted Fan.

Saludos,

David

that idea won't work on the Byron F-16, the tail section is built so nothing of that sort would work, the stabs and rudder servos are tail mounted. the only practical way would be to install the turbine in the cheater hole original fan location with a tail pipe and insulation around it. with the ducted fan engine/pipe removed one might want to form a duct to the air intake and close off the cheater hole somewhat.
