Freewing F-18 90mm Grey 6S EDF PNP FJ31421A+

R 9380,00

F/A-18C Hornet Blue Angels High Performance with 9-Blade 90mm EDF Jet from Freewing - PNP - FJ31413P

Version Info:  This is the High Performance version of the Freewing F/A-18C Hornet Blue Angels. This version includes a powerful 3672-1900kV inrunner motor with 9-blade fan and new full digital metal gear servos for elevators and flaps.

Over ten years ago, Freewing began developing their first American 90mm EDF, the F/A-18E Super Hornet. Made of EPS foam and sporting a plastic five blade fan, that model was one of the first 90mm PNPs to demonstrate Freewing’s dreams, and it set the stage for their evolution. Having partnered with us at Motion RC for the past seven years, we’ve all been humbly privileged to expand the Foam EDF Jet’s place in the RC hobby and earn the business of customers worldwide. Thank you for your continued feedback, excitement, and trust!

To celebrate Freewing’s Eleventh anniversary, we are proud to announce an all-new 90mm F/A-18C Hornet, complete with all the latest features common to modern era EDFs in our Super Scale series. Be sure to save a summer slot for the Freewing F/A-18C, the quintessential 90mm Hornet on the planet!

Definitely not a first EDF. The relatively narrow landing gear stance and flight characteristics argue for a more experienced pilot. High quality construction and capable of a decent airspeed - a definite favourite at the field.
