F-16 1:5 Scale Addendums

Airframe Directive (A.D.)
And other helpful notes

Canopy Locking Addendum

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.


Canopy Retention

Accumulation of manufacturing tolerances can lead to slight variances in the end products.


Cockpit Tub

Before Modification   After Modification

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.

U.A.T. Check

Inspect the U.A.T. to insure that there is clearance between the Main Wheel in the up position and the U.A.T.
It may be necessary to shim the U.A.T. up about 1/4”.

Aircraft flew amazing! Many thanks for all the hard work which goes into these amazing models you provide!
