This is my Madien Flight Review for the Freewing F-35 Lightning II V3 70mm EDF Jet.

Freewing F-35 Lightning II V3 70mm EDF Jet Maiden Flight Review (3 min 46 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.

This is my unboxing for the Freewing A-4 Skyhawk 80mm EDF Jet. It is pretty awesome!

Freewing A-4 Skyhawk 80mm EDF Jet Unboxing & Review (9 min 57 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.

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

Here is a video of John and I flying our H-King Paramotors at the same time at sunset

H-King Paramotor Sunset Flying with GB & John - Hobbyking PPG (9 min 14 sec)

Link to the H-King Paramotor: https://bit.ly/2VXTOcX

Flight Battery Link: https://bit.ly/2HCQCzA

The HobbyKing™ Paramotor is extremely easy to fly due to its very gentle and stable flight characteristics yet once you are used to it, it will perform loops and rolls with ease. Due to the design the huge high performance 2400mm sail opens quickly for easy launching and it will retain its shape even in turbulence. The single skin durable sail is made from 100% ripstop fabric and comes pre-rigged with tough polyethylene lines and ready to attach to the durable aluminum gondola. It does require a computer radio with mixing and servo control curves, to see what is involved in the radio set up please watch the attached video and also the one for the setting up of the parafoil itself.

There is a high level of prefabrication so assembly time is minimal and it is Plug-N-Fly so all you require is your own transmitter, receiver, and battery. The Paramotor is fitted with a powerful 3530-1400KV brushless motor swinging a 10 x 4.7 propeller, it also has a 50 amp electronic speed controller with 5 amp BEC and 2 powerful 15kg high torque metal geared servos. A 3S lipo battery is recommended and it can vary in capacity to suit different flying conditions. The recommended flying weight is 1.6~2.0kg, in light wind...Continue Reading
