This is my Maiden Flight Review of the Freewing A-4 Skyhawk 80mm EDF Jet with a CG tip after the flight. Please excuse the crappy landing.

Freewing A-4 Skyhawk 80mm EDF Jet Maiden Flight Review & CG Tip (5 min 8 sec)

Here are my review notes for this stunning Freewing EDF Jet:

Pros:
- Nice smooth finish on foam
- Scale retracts with quality suspension
- You can go between the F & E models with ease due to the magnetic “hump”.
- In addition to the hump, the provided decal sets and the fact the airframe comes bare allows for significant customization.
- The kit also comes with tons of different pieces including a tailhook and cockpit steps you can glue on for example.
- It has been out for a while, so all of the bugs have been worked out making the actual plane build quick and easy with no surprises.
- I felt comfortable in the air very quickly

Cons:
- It took a while to apply the waterslide decals, but that was mostly due to me never using them before.

This is my second flight with the super sexy Freewing F-35 Lightning II V3 70mm EDF Jet.

Freewing F35 Lightning II V3 70mm EDF Jet Second Flight (3 min 57 sec)

Here are my review notes for this pretty Stealth Fighter EDF RC Jet:

Pros:
- The paint and details are absolutely stunning on this F-35 Stealth Fighter Jet.
- It comes with nice suspension, including trailing link nose gear
- Plastic coated canopy to prevent gatoring
- A big battery bay

Cons:
- The main con and that is why I didn't give the simple overall build a Pro is that the servo connectors for the rudders and had a lot of paint on them making it difficult to determine polarity.
- It flies pretty heavy and the CG is hard to get dialed in nicely.
- Lights like my Freewing BAe Hawk T1 70mm EDF Jet would have been a nice.

GBLynden's Recommended Settings:

- Aileron: 40% D/R, 35% Expo
- Elevator: 100% D/R, 40% Expo
- Rudder: 60% D/R, 45% Expo
