New Product
Freewing Super Scorpion 80mm EDF Jet

Pis are were found on the interent from SIME 2014. This is Freewing's new 80mm EDF Super Scorpion.

Features/Specs (from MotionRC's website):

Freewing Super Scorpion 80mm EDF Jet - PNP - FJ20711P

Freewing partnered with Aviation Design, the original creators of the Super Scorpion, to scale down their large turbine-powered fiberglass jet into a compact electric powered 80mm EDF foam variant. The same exciting sport jet characteristics of the original Super Scorpion all remain: stable acrobatic maneuvers at all speeds including four point rolls and tall Cuban 8's, a predictable and gentle stall behavior, agile flight characteristics, slow full flap passes and landings, and more! Pilots can experience the performance handling of a purpose-built sport acrobatic jet in a unique design which is sure to turn heads at your local flying field.

Freewing's 80mm Super Scorpion is the perfect size for easy transport yet still containing the thrust of a 6s 80mm 12 blade power system. The rigid, carbon fiber reinforced wings are removable with screws, as are the unique vertical stabilizers, and full flying horizontal stabilizers. Metal gear servos on the elevator ensures positive control. The Super Scorpion also uses the larger Stinger 90-sized nose retract and trailing link struts all around for durable grass field operation. Plastic main gear doors and a spring-hinged full coverage nose gear door minimizes drag. A smartly designed NACA duct in the bottom of the nosecone draws air into the battery compartment to cool the battery. For pilots who have flown other aircraft in Freewing's 80mm Jet Series, the Super Scorpion blends the stability of the F-86 Sabre in an agile package slightly slower than the Mirage 2000. While the Super Scorpion has a wider fuselage than the Mirage, we appreciated the Super Scorpion's larger battery bay to accommodate our Admiral 6s 4000, 4500, or 5000 mAh-sized battery packs. The Super Scorpion is designed for intermediate to advanced EDF pilots.

Features:

12 Blade factory balanced EDF with metal housing and 3530-1750KV brushless outrunner motor produces realistic jet turbine sound
Composite fan blades combined with metal EDF housing make the Super Scorpion AMA compliant
Super scale details include hand painted, scale-sized pilots and full instrument panel
Super Scorpion graphics in easily visible red/white Swiss Scheme
Official insignia decal of Aviation Design, the innovative creators of the Super Scorpion
80 Amp Hobbywing ESC with 5A BEC
Electronic retractable landing gear with all metal shock-absorbing struts
Steerable, shock absorbing nose gear for enhanced ground maneuverability
Spring operated nose gear door
Carbon spars and EPO foam construction provide the perfect balance between strength and flexibility
Nylon hinges on all control surfaces (superior to foam hinges)
Outrunner motor, servos, ESC and EDF come pre-installed for your convenience
Removable wings and vertical stabilizers for convenient transport
Includes:
Freewing 80mm 12-Blade Metal EDF Super Scorpion - PNP
Requires:
Minimum 6 Channel Radio
6 Channel Receiver
6 Cell 22.2V 4000-5000 mAh LiPo Battery with EC5 connector
Lipo Battery Charger

Yep. Here is some more info, lol. They are working directly with Aviation Design on this model.

I was really thinking hard about getting the one from taft. I think I'm gonna wait on this one. I would think it would get better flight times and freewings quality is excellent.

Yeah, this should be interesting to see the sales between the Freewing one and Taft with each being in a different class of EDF sizing.

Expecially with the probable price difference.

Freewings 80mm have been rolling out at $300, so my guess is this should land around there.

I think Tafts version would be closer to 600.

I guess I don't feel to bad putting my scratch built E-Scorpion on hold-- there a dime a dozen now!!... None as big as mine, or have the "balls to make it go" . What a shame!!
And how/why they call it a "Super Scorpion". I' ll never know??

Me too. I prefer Freewing over other vendors - for foamy jets.

Correct, Freewing's Super Scorpion utilizes their 80mm 12 bladed 6s power system. We'll likely be evaluating it soon, stay tuned for any updates. I'll post a flight report when able.

I will. Freewing's jets are improving further with each release and I expect the same with this model.
