    The F-16 V5 FEATURES
    This F-16 V5 flies like an arrow! It likes to fly at medium to high speeds and is very precise. It does not take alot of control throws to get this plane to maneuver. I like to keep the throws down low (15 degrees) so I can fly it more scale. Crank the throws up (30 degrees) for some very fast aerobatics. This plane is a scale dogfighter when you want it to be and then a calm puppy when you slow it down. It’s alot of fun to fly because it is so easy to fly. It does not have larger wing area on it so I like keeping the total weight under 22oz. Elevons plus rudder is what I recommend when starting off. The rudder keeps the tail where you want it in the turns in windy conditions. Activate the ailerons to increase your roll rates. It’s a wonderful plane, it’s been worth the wait!

    Hey there,

    Can you weigh in with your opinion on what paint scheme best represents the essence of the F-16 flight performance?
    Thanks!

    You should see that lots of my friends in my club are competing with each other, having their FPV planes (Talon, Zeta, Skysurfer, etc.) painted in orange That gives me the idea of having orange as the color of the MQ-9 Reaper I just designed, too!

    You remind me that one time one of the member of the club brought a plinker gun and we did have fun, shooting at one old plane that was about to be decommissioned

    I say definitely #2! A little more scale but the accents would help with orientation at a distance.

    Back to the note 7!!
