$540 for 8s version is not bad. Looks like not too hard to add scale main gear door either, something like the main gear door for 80mm FMS BAE hawk. The empty weight under 3 kg is right on the mark for the size. Looking forward to more flight/mod report.

Look at the detail in the paint! I seriously hope it looks this good in real life. I really want to see what the 8S can do for performance. The 6S looks decent. Ive been out of the game for the 90 size EDFs. What power system are people going with for performance and sound these days? All I care about is vertical and the woosh. =)

The only thing the paint is really lacking is that semi-pearl look that the real one has as part of the radar absorbent coating.. A light dusting of a pearl satin clear coat should simulate it really well.

I am 100% in on this one! EXACTLY what I have been wanting! My only decision now is 6s or 8s!

We're joking right?? We're not actually comparing Freewing/Flightline and Dynam are we!

There are now TWO QUALITY F22's on the market including this 90mm. The other is the FW 64mm. Please tell me about another one that is not junk.

Yes, of course, I am referring to foam models.

I am not saying another one doesn't exist but some people are acting like F22s are produced like cubs and T28s and P51s and that is just not even remotely true!

I'm in for sure, but going to have to wait until the 2nd preorder... end of the year is always tough for me financially. Thanks MRC and Freewing for releasing yet another one of my dream jets!!

Think I'm going to sit out the 1st batch myself and see what it does in the hands of us regular pilots.
It's basically the same size as the L-39 and out weighs it by 760 grams. It's even 110 grams heavier than the F-4 which is on sale this month.

Give me quality and trustworthy over innovative. Though Flex innovations, fms and freewing have been doing exactly that. Innovative and quality.There is nothing innovative about not trusting the electronic components or build lol. While dynam aint bad at all they are hardly innovative. Sure they released a couple rare models that dont fly nearly as well as fms,freewing or Flex innovations stuff. Nor is the build as good. Innovative is in the subtlety of design not a choice of rarer model that typically wont sell as well. This freewing f22 will be the first innovative in quality and design 90mm f22 foamie I can get one and trust it right off the bat. Now if only i wasn't broke. Lol
