Overview The E-flite F-16 Thunderbirds 70mm EDF jet is a
scale replica of the iconic aircraft flown by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds
demonstration team. Like the full-scale airshow thriller, this F-16 has an
incredibly wide performance envelope—from slow and stable high-alpha flight to
amazing high-speed and vertical capabilities. At its core is a 6S-compatible
brushless motor and a 70-amp ESC that are matched to a 12-blade fan to deliver
an abundance of speed, thrust and a turbine-like sound. Factory-installed
electric retracts with shock-absorbing struts make it possible to take off and
land on a wider variety of surfaces–including grass—while keeping ground
handling smooth and delivering a realistic jet experience. The composite
reinforced EPO airframe is lightweight yet strong, and the digital, metal
geared servos plus ball-link equipped pushrods provide precise control. And it
all combines to deliver one of the easiest to fly, yet highest-performance and
most capable, F-16 models ever! Features The easiest to fly high-performance

Modes Beginner: Pitch and bank angle limits prevent over-control. Airplane
automatically returns to level flight when the control sticks are released.
Makes it easier to take off and land. Intermediate: More freedom in pitch and
bank, but still prevents significant over-control. Experienced: No pitch or
bank angle limits - allows flexibility to fly inverted (upside down) and
perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns. Panic
Recovery: Switch to Beginner Mode and release the sticks if you lose control
in Intermediate or Experienced modes. SAFE technology automatically returns
airplane to level flight. This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with an AS3X
(Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) receiver that works behind the scenes to
smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a sense of
stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a larger and
expertly tuned aircraft. Read more Exclusive Technologies This is the first
high-performance F-16 model equipped with exclusive Spektrum AS3X and SAFE
Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of
wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're
flying a much larger jet. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle
limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the
flip of a switch making this the easiest to fly F-16 model yet! And if you
don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver
normally and only AS3X will be active. Read more High-Power EDF The 12-blade
70mm fan, high-RPM brushless inrunner motor and 70-amp ESC combine with your
6S 3200–4000mAh LiPo battery to deliver amazing vertical performance and an
incredible speed range with virtually instantaneous throttle response. But
what makes the experience truly rewarding is the fantastic sound produced by
the power system—it's almost like a real turbine. Capable Gear The factory-
installed landing gear features reliable electric retracts equipped with
durable metal components and shock-absorbing struts that make it possible to
fly from a wider variety of surfaces including paved runways and even grass.
Durable Precision The composite reinforced EPO airframe is lightweight yet
durable, and the factory-installed digital, metal-geared servos plus ball-link
equipped linkages deliver crisp and precise control at every speed. Unmatched
Maneuverability The F-16's unique design offers incredible handling through a
wide flight envelope and speed range. It's capable of rock-solid high-speed
flight so you can perform locked-in low-level flybys and aerobatic maneuvers
including giant loops, point rolls and more, while also being capable of
slowing down to deliver smooth and stable high-alpha flight and landings. Read
