This is the Kyosho Electric Powered F-16 Fighting Falcon DF55 Ducted Fan Airplane. Heralded as the real pilot's fighter jet, the F16 Fighting Falcon was designed to be small, fast and lethal without all the bells and whistles of much larger US fighters. The superior visibility from the cockpit, the advanced radar systems, and the close-range weapon systems make this the ideal fighter for air-to-air combat. Placed in service in January 1979, the Fighting Falcon still fights along side the F22 and F117 Air Force fighters today. This legendary aircraft is captured in scale detail and matching performance, as Kyosho's first DF55 brushless ducted fan RC jet.
The new DF55 is a brushless ducted fan unit with an impellor diameter of 55mm, which is 10mm larger than the popular DF45. It's installed in a hybrid foam fuselage that sets new standards for scale appearance and durability. The airframe can handle the higher loads that result from the exceptional performance of the bigger ducted fan while remaining incredibly light. The F16 is factory assembled with the brushless motor, micro servos and brushless speed control installed! All you need to do is install a LiPo battery pack and a receiver of your choice, and you're ready to fly one of the most high-performance ducted fan jets available.
