An F-16 Replica - Technically my first serious plane build, so go easy on the criticism. Would love some tips though on how to improve!

Note: If you want to use the navball autopilot, keep proportional below 5 and the derivative/integral below 1.

    @VosAerospace aww man. Na. Just put tad but not much dead weight in nose cone.. it's not really off or bad . Just would probably take some the rear flipping over.. or my method a lot is adjustments by how much fuel in tanks all together to do it and can add stacked tanks and hide inside others .. hey that's not cheating because I usually don't mess with mass , but have stacked different fuels inside others and such ..sonetimes

    External fuel tanks could help. I’m not sure if the F-16 had those but they add fuel and weight to areas.

    @XionmassResearchDevt thanks. how do i fix that though? i have my pilot’s license so i know the term well, but i didn’t know how to adjust it forward without losing too much fuel capacity

    Little helpful advice,, its tail heavy.. on a basic layout like this , center of mass is 1/3 back from front of main wing.. Instead of it called center of mass, in the RC airplane hobby we call it COG .. center of gravity

    Hey, just some constructive criticism here, you could make the plane look quite a bit better if you used the fuel tank on wing strategy. You see it a lot and it's relatively easy to use. Overall as a first (serious) build I think this looks great! Keep it up!
