  • just ordered the 8s power upgrade for a new F16 90mm, Is there enough room under the canopy for 2 4s batteries to power it and still balance ok for it? If anyone can help with this question I would very much appreciate the info. Thanks, Kevin

    • My buddy runs his on 8s, I will ask him about what he had to do to get the batteries to fit, I know it's a tight fit, CG is fine if you can get them jammed to the back as much as possible. I did the maiden on it and I had his CG set about 110-112mm which is where I run mine at on 6S. I can tell you this much, he said it wasn't worth it, he wishes he would have kept it on 6s, didn't gain much, maybe a little more thrust is all, but the weight is more, of course he is running brakes and another small lipo plus the two large 4S lipos. I do all of his test flights right now until he gets more jet time and figures out how to land it. I feel the difference in power but it's not a huge difference to me. He was able to get the two 4S batteries side by side in there though and still adjust the CG.

        According to Motion RC they should fit just fine. But as mentioned above it may not get you much more than you already have. The plane is going to gain weight and this plane doesn't care much for higher weight.

        I am planning on getting an ARF plus here pretty soon and will be dropping in my 4082 1600kv inrunner set up. It worked great on my F-15 and since the F-16 is a cleaner air frame I am thinking it will do even better.
        I have way too many planes to list off... But I love to fly them all! the 80-90mm Jets are my newest addiction! Also check out my youtube channel for TONS of flying footage. https://www.youtube.com/user/gooniac33

          • In everyone's humble opinion, are the Flaperons necessary or helpful on this ship?

              Gooniac did you ever do the inrunner on the F-16? I am also considering that same thing.

                It is on my list. Haven't done it yet but will be in the coming months. I am actually considering putting the new fms 90mm fan in the T-45 and possible the F-16 as well. High KV motors but they have really good half throttle performance as well. The new Scorpion was clocked in excess of 130mph.... but still getting about 4 mins flight time and not hard on batteries... I am gonna get a lot of planes here over the next few months...

                  I do not recommend using the stock ESC with the FMS 1900kv motor...it will eventually burn up the ESC. It happened to me and several others...read the related posts on the RCG FW F-16 thread.

                                      • So, I notice the 90mm Super Scale F-16 is no longer listed in the Jets section or the spare parts section on Motion RC. Anybody know what's going on? Have they discontinued it, and are there no more parts available?
