FEJ F-16 1/5th

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Still up for sale is FEJ 1/5 scale F-16, I have lost interest in this jet and looking towards another project. This is very close to completion, all control surfaces are working and main gear, front gear works but does not rotate 100% on "up" position. FEJ have offered it to be returned and upgraded to Gen 3 at no charge...just need to send it to them. The jet is Big 107" long and I have no desire to ship but will drive a reasonable distance to meet. There are still a few personal upgrades (minor) I would do and can discuss with serious buyers.

I have over $4400 in this jet, the Jet today lists for approx $3800us and $250us for shipping. I'm taking a break from jets and moving towards a full scale car project.
42% Blue Box $150
Hitec 225 x3 $57
Hitec 5645 rudder $51

Re: FEJ F-16 1/5th

Not to sound like an idiot but, what size turbine is recommended for this model?

Any other notable snags that need attention other than the gear?

This is my helicopter. There are many like it but, this one is mine.

Re: FEJ F-16 1/5th

I have a Behotec 180 for it (40lbs) I don't think I would go too much smaller, Peter Ramsay flew his at Wingham Jets on the same and it was just right. Some guys have done nothing to the jet but I would change or toughen up the wing to wing brace. There has also been some discussion about placing a pin in the stabalizer rod to prevent a possible stabalizer rotation at high speed, easy to do if you wish. RC Universe has a nice build thread on it.

I don't think Peter R did any mods on his

Re: FEJ F-16 1/5th

What a great deal Angus.. Guys if you are interesting in a nice flying jet this is an unbeatable deal. I have the same aircraft and it flies great on the Behotec180. I am currently getting my gears upgraded to Generation 3. Other than that its a very nice airplane and this is an unbelievable deal. Good luck with the Sale Angus.
