[ Review – FlyBear FX823 Micro F-16 Plane ]

First, I thank my Wife for filming for me and keeping me sane 😉

This plane cannot fly worth a CR#@$%!!!!
Do not buy this plane!
The plane is so underpowered you cannot get the weight on the nose to prevent a severe tail heavy condition.
A huge disappointment since the Flybear Red Baron Biplane was such a great little flyer.

I did have a lot of fun continually crashing this plane 😉
It was so comical to watch this plane nose down into the ground whenever a tight turn was performed.
Every time I turned the plane it would lose a significant amount of lift and altitude.
I had to tap the direction stick repeatedly to turn so it wouldn’t nose into the ground, a continued turn on the stick would cause it to nose dive into the ground.

Great review! Too bad this bird isn’t so good. On the surface she looks real nice. Thank you for the heads up! Happy Flyin my brother!

It’s cool but doesn’t seem to fly that well. I have been looking at these for a few weeks now and was thinking of getting one but to strip the motors and electrics out and making proper control surfaces and fitting it with 2-2.5g micro servos and a single brushless micro pusher motor. Or if it’s big enough cutting it completely apart and try to fit a 30mm edf in it. Which cold be really cool. Happy flying to you.

Nicolas Breguet says:

I bought two of them for my boys anb they fly great if you remember to be very gentle on the control.
I also put a 380mah battery to ad more weight at the front.

Kanari Mentos says:

you cannot trust any glue you should test on little piece of foam first thats wt i do

How To DIY Rc says:
