1/8 F16 1.81m (71.3″)

Pilot-RC is very pleased to announce the production of what is one of aviations most epic aircraft ever, the General Dynamics F16 Fighting Falcon.

We wanted this one to go above and beyond as a beautiful scale model. We found ways to make it reliable and tough enough to actually be flown on a regular basis, and not a problem to transport or put together, all in a package that fly’s brilliantly well.

This 1/8 scale version has been designed with an improved wing area, to provide better performance and flight characteristics.
