Freewing YF-16 Falcon 70mm Vectored Thrust EDF Jet - ARF in General Dynamics Red, White and Blue Color Scheme - FJ20211K

The General Dynamics YF-16 is the original F-16 prototype developed in the early 1970's to be the primary strike fighter for the United States Air Force. Freewing brings us this incredibly historic plane in a 70mm EDF with vectored thrust. The YF-16 is the perfect EDF jet for learning to fly with vectored thrust. While the plane can be flown with a 5 channel receiver, Motion RC recommends using a 6 channel RX so you can put the vectored thrust servos on their own channels as opposed to using the included Y cables. This allows you to turn the thrust vectoring on and off and set dual rates for the channels. This is the best way to learn to fly a plane like this before graduating to a larger Freewing F-18 or SU-35. When running on the recommended 4S LiPo pack, the YF-16 has a plenty of thrust for high alpha maneuvers. While then landing gear is fixed, the plane has plenty of scale details and is an absolute blast to fly. This kit version of the YF-16 is perfect for RC enthusiasts looking to upgrade the Falcon to their exact specifications of power and performance. A piece of American history and a Motion RC favorite.

Note: The wiring procedure to achieve in-flight on/off selection of the thrust vectoring flight modes is an advanced feature, and accordingly this aircraft is recommended for advanced pilots only. A general wiring diagram is discussed in the manual, but pilots should expect some time to test various wiring arrangements themselves to optimize the thrust vectoring controls to their individual preference.
