Freewing 64mm F-86

This has been out for five years now but the old Hobby Lobby review thread seems a bit stagnant and difficult to find for newbies with the Freewing and not buying from Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby has changed to Hobby Express for a few years now and no longer carries the F-86, thus a change was in order.

Many thanks for all the great info in that old thread, which I'll am linking here > http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1160765

Just got mine a few weeks ago from Motion RC. They offer two color schemes: Korean War Jolley Roger: http://www.motionrc.com/freewing-f-8...m-edf-jet-pnp/ and Air Show Skyblazers (which I have): http://www.motionrc.com/freewing-f-8...m-edf-jet-pnp/ Only $89 for a great flying PNP jet model is a heck of a deal. I plan to eventually install a 12 blade fan although I understand the resulting power/weight ratio with a heavier battery may be less than desired. I'll post in this thread as I go along. Flying stock for a while first.

This probably should be over in electric edf's. However the Vampire is here and I've posted in there too as 52Sabre. 2,317 posts tallied over the years.

Thank you. Corrected above. The F-86 is no longer available from them either.

Hobby People never had the F-86 Just Hobby Lobby but Motion Rc is the better place to buy everything

I got a Freewing Mig-15 from Motion that would love to shoot your F-86 down... I fly my Mig-15 less the tanks and on a 2200. Balances out perfect and I get roughly 4:30 minutes of flight time. I did upgrade the motor to a higher kv but I'm still using the stock fan. Fantastic EDF for the value. Here's a pic from 2 days ago... I'll fly in just about any conditions up her on the north coast.

I got mine a week ago from a friend who crashed her during maiden. He gave me the body and the servos and I installed an EDF from a Freewing's Su-34 (RIP) and the ESC from a Dynam warbird I upgraded.

It was a challenge to repair the little one but at the end it paid out.

The plane was fitted with HK landing gear and I was worried about the weight, but since I fly from very rough tarmac, I left the wheels on.

I used the recommended CG of 85mm from front.

I'm using a 2200mAh, 55c 3s battery.
