E-Flite F-16 Falcon 80mm EDF with SMART BNF

Ref. EFL87850


The E-flite® F-16 Falcon 80mm EDF jet is the Smartest, most detailed and best handling high-performance model of the fighter yet! Its all-new design combines Extra Scale details, functional features and more to deliver an unmatched flying experience.

 

The E-flite® F-16 Falcon 80mm EDF jet is the Smartest, most detailed and best handling high-performance replica of the world-renowned fighter yet! Extra Scale details, including molded-in panel lines, simulated antennas, indicators, sensors, optional-use ordnance, and more take realism to the next level. Functional Extra Scale features include LED navigation and landing lights, full-flying stabs, sequenced gear doors plus the most scale-like retractable landing gear installed on an F-16 EDF model yet. Both versions include nine factory-installed digital, metal-geared servos, and with the ARF Plus version you can install the compatible receiver and an 80mm EDF power system of your choice — from another similar class model or using other compatible components. The BNF® Basic version comes factory-equipped with a Spektrum™ AR637TA receiver that includes exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies, along with a V2 12-blade 80mm fan, high-power 2100Kv brushless inrunner motor and a 100-amp Avian™ Smart ESC to deliver fantastic performance with popular 6S 4000–7000mAh LiPo batteries. This efficient power system provides better performance and longer flight times than the 6S-compatible power systems used in similar sized models powered by 90mm EDFs. The ESC and receiver supply real-time battery voltage, motor RPM and other telemetry data via compatible transmitters. Constructed of durable, fully-molded EPO, this F-16 assembles without glue and can be ready to fly in less time than other similar class models!

 

Exclusive Technologies

This high-performance F-16 Falcon model is equipped with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch to make this an easier to fly Falcon! And if you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and only AS3X will be active.

 

High-Performance EDF

The V2 12-blade 80mm fan, high-power 2100Kv brushless inrunner motor and 100-amp ESC combine with your 6S 4000–7000mAh 30+C LiPo battery to deliver great vertical performance and a fantastic speed range with virtually instantaneous throttle response. This efficient power system also delivers better performance and longer flight times than the 6S-compatible power systems used in 90mm class models. But what makes the experience truly rewarding is the fantastic sound it produces – it's almost like a real turbine.

 

Extra Scale Details

The F-16 Falcon 80mm EDF features an accurate outline and an abundance of Extra Scale details including molded-in panel lines and hatches, simulated antennas, indicators, sensors and much more. And, unlike other similar class models that require you to spend more to buy them separately, it includes a full complement of optional-use and easy to install/remove ordnance including six missiles plus three drop tanks.

 

Functional Extra Scale Features

Factory-installed LED navigation and landing lights, full-flying stabs, control surfaces with pocket hinges – even sequenced main gear and nose gear doors – are functional Extra Scale features that take your experience to another level. An optional simulated afterburner LED ring is also available separately to further enhance your experience.

 

Extra Scale Gear

The reliable, factory-installed electric retracts are equipped with durable metal components including Extra Scale painted, articulated and shock-absorbing struts. It's the most scale-like landing gear installed on an F-16 EDF model yet! The sequenced and servo-operated gear doors feature molded details on the inside, and the nose gear door is also equipped with an LED landing light that turns on and off automatically when the gear is extended or retracted.

 

Detailed Durability

Construction with fully molded EPO material makes it possible to replicate complex details and shapes in a lightweight yet durable form. The result is an outstanding scale appearance that's easy to maintain and delivers the best possible flight experience. Plus, the plastic capped strakes, hatch edges and opening improve durability to prevent damage and paint chipping during handling and when installing/removing batteries.

 

Precise Control

A total of nine factory-installed digital, metal-geared servos, along with ball-link equipped linkages on all primary flight controls, deliver crisp, precise and reliable control at every speed.

 

Easy Assembly

No glue is required for assembly and you can have the F-16 ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery! The stabs plus the two-piece wing bolt into place and can easily be removed for convenient storage and transport.

 

Customizable Trim Scheme

  • Decal sheets with four different choices of squadron markings are included so you can customize the factory-painted 3-tone gray finish. The choices include:
  • South Carolina Air National Guard (based at Shaw Air Force Base) 79th Fighter Squadron - Leader, 20th Fighter Wing, Tiger Meet Version
  • South Carolina Air National Guard (based at Shaw Air Force Base) 77th Fighter Squadron, 20th Fighter Wing, Wild Weasel 50th Anniversary Version

Bind-N-Fly Completion Level Advantage

Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!

 

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a heightened sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.

 

If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

 

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

  • Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
  • Automatic Self-Leveling


Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Programming Required

The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any complex programming and takes just a few seconds.

If you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.
