Summary of This Radio Controlled EDF Jet Platform
A very impressive EPO Foam airplane – durable and tough! It paints well, and there are plenty of ways to upgrade the look with an airbrush, spray can, or even a paint brush. As my first fully customized airplane, it only required paint and masking tape. This E-flite RC gem is remarkably shaped to match the real F-16 quite well! This arctic version gives this plane a substantial amount of contrast, when compared with the original Thunderbirds livery. Flying slow, or flying fast, this F-16 is going to make you look on each pass!

When you’re going to fully repaint an airplane, it certainly makes it easier to do so BEFORE assembling the plane for final. I created a design in my head, and slowing marked the plane to have my lines align perfectly when the final assembly happens. Take your time, but if you do make a mistake, you can easily paint over and try again. Unlike the RC car bodies I have painted, the EPO foam planes are very forgiving to work on, and substantially easier to paint in my opinion.
