Default Pictures of your F-16/Jetcat setup?

I am installing a P-80 in my F-16 and would really like to see how you Falcon pilots did your install. In particular your pump and solenoid setup would be most appreciated! This would say me a bunch of time rather than reinvent the wheel so to speak. Thanks in advance!

Hi Mark,

which F16 kit are you referring to?

Avonds but I think any F-16 that size would be close enough. Doing the install is no big thing, what I need is help with the trial and error. The less error the better!

Thanks

Falconwings,

Sweet looking -16. I'm thinking of getting one but only if it comes with the smoke "pimp"! LOL

Hi Mark,

There are some good pics of my skymaster fitout on this thread:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_54...tm.htm#5467269

I always put my fuel pump well away from the other gear but in a serviceable position (see pics) no matter what radio system I am using. You can't really get it further away from anything else than where I have it located.

One of these days I will finish my Avonds F16 too!

Craig.

Thanks Craig and those who replied. I Got some good ideas here and from some pm's. I thinks I got a good setup now, took most of friday night and this morning to figure it out. Really not a great deal of room under the cockpit with all the intake ductwork, airtanks, valves etc. Putting equipment below the intake ductwork would require removing the turbine, bypass and ducting to get at it if something went south, not an option really so every thing needs to go up front to be maintainable.

thanks for the help.
