The HSD website describing the F-16 had my mouth watering. I finally got one. i was very excited. Then the problems started. A pushrod and control horn were missing and a servo did not work. Altho I sent pictures and descriptions HSDUSA could never send the right servo. i had to substitute one of my own. Control adjustments made with the MFC 2085 main controller gave inconsistent and unreliable results. I had to bypass the controller and wire Ail, Ele, and Rud directly to the reciever. Using the CG marked on the wings makes takeoffs almost impossible. I regret having spent $1000 for this.

Pretty good jet
Had some problems at first, way to much play in the elevator stabs, almost like a part was missing, used a plastic washers I modified to fix that issue. Poor glue job on front retract which most people know of. MFC box has worked well for me using a cortex pro gyro and Futaba S-bus system. Jet has a very, very good sound. I have a SAB Avio Lizzard with a Hacker Stream fan 120 and the F-16 has a better turbine like sound. Much easier to land than I thought It would be, keep speed up in turns and then on final cut it way back and It sinks really nicely. One of my favorite jets to fly for sure. Glad I did not give up etc.

Great Jet When Dialed In
I have had all 3 versions of this model.  It really is a great jet with a big presence.  Unfortunately with size comes higher wing loading.  I am very pleased with the upgraded S-EDF power plant as I fly in a confined area with trees, light poles, buildings, etc.  So to get out of a jam if need be is a must.  I've had two flights so far with this V3 and they have been "Pucker Flights".  Mainly due to CG and rates which is on me.  Once I get her where I want her I know she will reward me with awesome scale flights.  Not for a newbie that's for sure.  Love the size (not so much the weight), gear and presence.  She's worth taking the time to find the right CG/throws/expo that works for you.
