BVM PNP F-16 1:5 Scale
Includes NEW BVM branded Servos
First shown at Florida Jets 2016, this new BVM offering was honored with a "Special Recognition Award" for a new product. This is a "Go Fly" jet with lots of features similar to the BVM, 1/6th F-16, Cougar and YAK-130.
It's light weight is one of those special features.
Dustin accomplished the airshow flight at Florida Jets and Greg Arnette has since logged dozens of flights on this sample to help BVM get it "right".

Airframe Directive (A.D.)
Check that the servo arm does not stop short of full travel because it is touching the aft frame work. If it does, use a dremel carbide cutter to make a notch as shown. After the notch is made, you can see that the cable operated locking pins can move a bit further forward. This improves the locking pin engagement.
Accumulation of manufacturing tolerances can lead to slight variances in the end products.
Trim off the small tabs at forward end of plastic cockpit tub. This will ensure that the tub does not slide aft and disengage the retention hooks.
See other addendums relative to the canopy operation.
Apply Z-42 (blue thread locker) to the exposed end of these 2 bolts. This precaution will keep the bolts from backing out of the aluminum fittings as the canopy is operated open and close.
Important Note: Do not rely on the servo operated latching mechanism to fully hold the Canopy down and locked. Always manually push down on the front of the Canopy Hatch as it lowers to insure that the 2 locking pins are fully engaged.
Inspect the U.A.T. to insure
that there is clearance between the Main Wheel in the up position
and the U.A.T.
