I made some changes to the VIPER F-16 plans for the build, by adding Ailerons, so i need 2 servos for and the other 2 servos are for the Elevator.

The Multirotor LED Brake Light Set, Green, White, Red
Is been used for the after burner, and mixing it with the Throttle on to a channel I got to bypassed the Green so the Red and White LED's glow.

My goal is it to stand out when flying and been Red it seemed appropriate that Deadpool more likely the one that fly a F-16, and rather happy the way the skin worked out. and have add a 5mm bleed so the skin can cover the edges.

Now to make it, plans are printed and next will be cutting the parts out from the Foam board.

Started to build last night until I realized the ESC need to have power leads extended, so i just assembled what I can so this will let me dry fit the F-16 to see how its going to look and work out how long the power leads will be needed.

I'm happy the way it's coming together.

I been putting off this until I had a way to record the video of the maiden flight, as the Foxxer legend
I had died some time ago. Now ordered a Firefly Q6 to replace it im now able to record the video. I must say it's not a bad Video Camera for the price.
