    This is how I set up linkage using .032 wire for control rod.

    The rudder servo you can just mount stationary in front of the control surface.

    Don't know if you opened it, but the planview pdf shows approximate placement of servos and battery.
    People tend to overlook that pdf I work so hard on

    Make sure to tape your receiver down with just barley not enough tape so the air sucks it into the prop.
    Just kidding, I've never done that...

    This is interesting. ..notice everyone uses a slightly different approach and each one works well.

    There's a bigger message amidst this photo barrage. ..I know there is.

    Simple is better ?

    Yes, simple is better! I would say that a simple set up with as much of the mass at cg is what I look for.

    This is great Lars.

    I was wondering what you might try and ultimately do with this airframe. Keep us posted.

    Nice Lars! If you are using Aero it might be good to be a little smaller. I say that it needs at least 3 motors

    Jay,
    The strange thing is that these sheets that I got hold of are equally or maybe even stiffer than the standard Depron sheets. The weight are the same for both of them, I have to do a test...

    The Aero I used was less stiff than MPF. Very soft. Almost like paperless Dt foam.

    Oh yeah, right, was Greg ...
    Yes Jay, but I need to compare the stiffness of the sheets in a more "scientific manner", before it's time to celebrate!

    Hi Guys, I know you are going to shout at me and tell me I'm missing the point lol...but I love the F16 and nobody seems to have tackled it, so when Jay and Greg came up with the F16 MK2 I couldnt help myself. DSC_0158.JPG As always with FRC planes it flies like its on rails, and when its coming towards you it looks simply awesome! Thanks to you both for another fantastic plan DSC_0157.JPG
