    That was funny Newt! There is nothing in the field and it hits the little fence behind you.
    Good save at the last second. You can see you pulling up in when you watch it in slow mo.

    Is this an easy plane to fly? How much harder than the SU-34?

    Thanks for linking that post, Lgel! Yes, the f16 has such low wing loading that it makes it great starter especially since it's so easy to build and repair. Bring packing tape and scrap foam to the field for quick repairs. Once you get comfortable with it you can turn up throws and turn down expos and it'll fly with crazy maneuverability. Daves fixed flaps, leading and trailing, make it even easier to fly!

    That means it could be done tonight! Cutting should take an hour, assembly 2 hours!

    True! Less parts so less to screw up is how I like to think about it. I have to order a prop though :(. I may end up using my chipped one... It's barely chipped but it's still a bad idea.

    If you look on the plan you will see the assembly guide. It's the part where you see how all the pieces fit. This plane only has a few pieces so no need for separate build instructions. Then the planview has the set up info and servo placement. Finally if you have any questions, feel free to ask here!

    How do you recommend cutting the curves? I am not used to them

    A couple of tools you may need for the job. A couple of knives and a drill can come in pretty handy down the road too.

    Most any knife that feels good in your hand but it does have to be sharp.

    I have plenty of extra blades, as well as a drill. I never thought of cutting the curves without an assistance device. I tried and it worked fine

    So I'm finally getting close to finishing my F-16... Don't know why it always takes me so long to get things done. I chickened out of soldering the new esc and instead ordered a couple of pre-wired ones from micronwings. Hopefully I can take it for a fly on the weekend. :)
