How about flying F-16s in 1/5, 1/6 or 1/10 scale!

Here you can discuss paint schemes, kit details etc. for flying and non-flying scale models.

Radio controlled F-16 scale models are one of the popular kit available to RC flyers nowsdays, they are moulded down to 1/5 till 1/10 or small scale for electric RC flyers, the biggest one tend to be turbine powered and come with close-to-origin retract landing gears, any keen party can login our site at http://www.asiascalerc.com

Frankly speaking...It is expensive to own one and required some knowledges to build as well to fly a completed assembled model in the air, but beside all this we (modeling fans) should updates ourselves more on those kits available out there! I guess it everybody dream to own one after great enjoyment on those static modelling, just imagine about getting a functional gear system moving and more..... !!!

AsiaScaleRC, Great topic! Please post some pics if you can! So far I've only flown R/C sailplanes (the Dynaflight "Wanderer" and Great Planes "Easy Answer ARC" if you're familiar), and I consider even those a bit pricey! Habu, yes, they sure are amazing. I've seen some true turbine engine R/C aircraft fly firsthand and I think they're just too cool 8) ! I love some of the precision scale R/C planes I've seen and I'd love the attention to detail such as correct gear, control surfaces, and I've even heard of working afterburner! I get nervous just watching them land - I can't imagine setting down such a twitchy, expensive piece of equipment! Someday when I'm really rich I may just have to get one! It'll probably be the only way I ever get to take control of a Viper. Now, how am I gonna see the HUD? :lol: ?
No plane on Sunday, maybe be one come Monday...

I guess it will be better for you to know who are making those kits since you are going to be owner of one of those amazing model at your nearest future! We have compiled a list of them and hopefully it help! Posting a photo here may not as exciting as you are looking at those mfg's gallery of their scale flying Viper. hang on!

I'd love to see somebody take RC scale flying one notch further and install cameras in the plane which link to a ground station which is also a simulator pit. Blend flight simming and RC scale modelling together in one very, VERY fun package.

It's only a matter of time before somebody does it.

Actually, it already exists, in the form of RPVs.

There's a club in Long Island, New York with a member, or two, who fly RC model aircraft with video cameras aboard.
Check out

http://www.liarsrc.com/photos.html

and click on the link that will lead you to a video taken with a camera aboard a model -- not an F-16 -- flying over the club's field. This is best viewed with a wide bandwidth Internet connection.

AsiaScaleRC, FYI, that last video is already in the movies section of the photo gallery on this site. Good videos, though!

Hello AsiaScaleRC! I'm glad you liked my video - where did you pick it up?
That was my maiden flight with the SpiderJets F-16 powered by a Simjet 3000 turbine.

There are at least 4 large F-16 turbine models flying here in Norway, as well as some small ones with electric ducted fans! When you can't become a jet pilot yourself, it's the second best thing! :D
