The United States Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team has been inspiring aviation fans since the very start of the jet age. Going into a 33 year run, the incredible Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon multi-role jet platform has been an exemplary part of the precision and dedication for which the team is known. The E-flite® UMX™ F-16 EDF jet is inspired by the engineering and world-renowned service record of the original by offering the excitement of a great flying RC jet you can enjoy just about anywhere.
You’ll enjoy four-channel precision with an operational rudder and full-flying horizontal stabilizers that provide both pitch and roll control.
