HSD has leaped ahead in the industry with the 105mm Special Edition F-16, a model worthy of being the best in its class. It is professionally designed to balance a simple assembly, scale appearance, quality and high performance. This inspiring model will leave you looking for more after every single flight. Its massive high-performance 105mm 12-blade EDF creates an unrivaled turbine-like swoosh that echoes through the skies. It features a complete lighting package with several LEDs, like the nose taxi-light and after-burner simulation ring.
It is built with the latest innovative Quantum Foam (Q-Foam) formula by HSD, making the airframe stronger and more durable than EPO variants! To make transportation and storage much easier, the wings are installed and secured with a set of screws. An all-metal landing gear system was also designed from the ground up to feature robust quality, reliability and scale retraction. Landings are a breeze with the scale-shock absorption feature. Lastly, it is propelled with a 44.4V (12S) power system, so you can tear the skies with ease! This edition features a high-voltage 12S 150A ESC with live voice initialization!
For best performance, we recommend using a 12S 44.4V 5000+mAh 40C+ lithium polymer battery setup. Two 6S 22.2V 5000+mAh 40C lithium polymer batteries in series will work exceptionally well.
