A little F-16 sortie to start my Sunday morning...

  • That's awesome Steve, I didn't know that! I have always loved the Phantom even as a small child. I had posters of it in my room growing up. Just so bad ass looking. Like a tank with wings. I was thrilled when our company developed this model. She flies wonderfully as well.

    A very nice surprise when I checked in on .Net today, Todd. Thank you! Great slow-motion and onboard video, and an absolutely exquisite landing! Is the F-4 very different in handling compared to the F-16? Does it have two engines?

    The Phantom was indeed a favourite plane of mine. It was loaned to Australia in the very early 70s while we awaited the delayed F111. Interesting that the F111 in turn became a much-loved aircraft, after its tortured teething troubles.

  • Yeah it's definitely different than the F-16, mainly due to its wing loading. The F-16 was very heavy where this Phantom is very light for its size. On half flaps landings are a breeze. Single EDF motor...Some folks are putting really cool afterburner LED lights in theirs...I may have to do the same.
