Freewing Stinger High Performance 4S 64mm EDF Jet - PNP

Thought this bird deserved its own thread!

Power System: Brushless 2836-3500Kv
Speed Control: 40A, Internal SBEC, T connector
Propeller / EDF: 64mm EDF
Servos: 9g5 Metal Gear
Required Battery: 4S 14.8V 2200mAh 30C 4 cell LiPo

Freewing Stinger 64 HP 4S Flight Review from Motion RC (6 min 35 sec)


Price: $135 Shipped from motion RC

Just placed an order for this beast.



How do these compare to the HK Stinger 64?

What top speeds are you getting?

Faster Upgrades?

My understanding is that the only differences seems to be

Colour scheme
Deans connector vs XT60 for the ESC

Getting some of the 2200 4S batteries in can be challenging - I ended up with Zippy Compact 4S 2200 batteries which just fit (I have the HK Stinger Mk2)

Hopefully maiden this later in the week

Perhaps best to keep this on the 1 thread

I really like my Freewing 64 - though it is 3s - I am going to stick a dons wicked set up in to see if I can wake it up. Might pick up one of these just for fun.

Gratuitous video plug of the Stinger 64 run today

But the Motion (or Hobby Lobby, or....) is so much better looking that there's really no contest here.

Need to find some LSD to appreciate the HK style.

I just checked that HK model out and it does have an awful color scheme.
