BVM F-16 Turbine Conversion
I converted my BVM F-16 to turbine power prior to BVM’s introduction of their F-16 turbine conversion kit. The BVM conversion is designed around the RAM-500 turbine while
my conversion included a fully bypassed JetCat P-80 installation. The scale subject for this model was a Navy Aggressor F-16N. The project was covered in the April/May, 2002 issue of Radio Control Jet International magazine
complete with many photos of the scale subject.. I will post some additional photos of the scale subject at a later date.
The following overview should give you a pretty good idea of what is involved in converting
the BVM F-16 model to turbine power.
