FMS 64mm EDF F15 Eagle Version 2 in Sky Camo Color Scheme - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMS010

This is a brand new updated version of the FMS F-15 Eagle. For starters, the F-15 is now made of strong EPO foam as opposed to the EPS foam used in prior models. The motor was upgraded to a larger 2627-5100Kv power plant and the ESC was upgraded from a 35A to a 50A. The battery bay has been expanded to accommodate a larger 3S 2200mAh LiPo battery. All these improvements make this version significantly more advanced than the prior model, so we have designated it as version 2 (V2). Landing gear is easily removable so this can be hand launched and belly landed. It you want the most speed like the guys at Motion RC, we recommend you remove the under wing missiles, drop tanks, and landing gear. If you are more of a scale flyer, the F15 flies just fine with the missiles in place albeit a little slower. While this is a 4 channel plane, the rudder channel is for steering only - there is no functional rudder. The Motion RC pilots recommend flying the plane using 5 channels - we separate the elevator into two channels so we can subtrim the elevator halves for perfect control. This vastly improved EDF is a pleasure to fly and demonstrates very stable flight behavior.

Features:

  • New, more powerful 2627-5100kV motor
  • New 50A ESC
  • Now made from durable EPO foam
  • Super scale details including independent horizontal stabs
  • Steerable nose gear for easy taxi, take off, and landing
  • Detailed wing surfaces and decals
  • Motor, ESC, and servos come preinstalled for quick assembly
  • Can perform ground takeoffs or hand launches

  1. Great EDF but the Vibration has got to be fixed 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2015

    I was amazed how this jet flew. it took about 30 mins to glue everything together and waited a day to test fly. It seemed to stick to the ground on take off as some other reviews but finally once it got airborne flew great. Really responsive and easy to see despite the sky camo color scheme. had a good 3:30 of flight time with the 3S 2200 Mah battery and it landed as expected. I did try to mess with the landing gears to get the nose higher for a better take off like some other reviews have said and will test it today. All in all a great little jet and fun to fly. Would be 5 stars if not for the vibration at 25-40% throttle.


  2. modified eagle 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Feb 2015

    After frying the motor on a 4s battery , it was time for some power train upgrades. A lite weight 64mm 4s alloy fan unit with a 4000kv motor with a cheap 50 amp ESC was a nice improvement. Unfortunately I had also seemed to ruin the stock ESC even though I was able to do a dead stick landing which is normal for me now as this plane just floats in with no power and easily flares for a soft landing. I use an admiral 2200 4s which is a tight fit but works fine. Plane is much faster now and would fly even faster without wheels and would look so much better in flight but takeoffs and landings are half the fun. Power on touch and gos are a great also. A simple 4s motor swap makes this thing come alive. Also had to bend rear gear to lower the plane for smoother takeoffs and it now lifts off gently. Plane looks fat in fuselage from the side but fly's great as expected. Orientation at distance can be a problem on overcast days, may paint top of wingtips for better visibility


  3. This is a good one 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2015

    This is a nice jet to assemble and take to the field. Flies pretty quick on a 3 cell pack and very nimble. I love the paint scheme, but she can be tough to track under cloudy conditions. The size is perfect for quick outings. Motion RC is the best distributor to purchase from. Fair prices, fast shipping, great product reviews, and tips for successful trips to the field.


  4. Great edf for the money 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2014

    It is very stable and it is a great floater for belly landing the jet. As always thank you Motion Rc for fast delivery and great product. Keep up the good work.


  5. flight review 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2014

    Finally maidened the plane after two aborted attempts. The nose sits low which makes it hard to unstick the plane resulting in a very high angle takeoff. I bent the rear landing gear to make it sit lower in the rear which improved takeoffs. I had read elsewhere on loosening fan collet and readjusting for vibration but never got to try it. I was disappointed with power and put in a 4s 2200 and it flew great. Unfortunately I fried the motor after about two minutes but was at high altitude and was able to dead stick land no problem. Have ordered a 4000 kV 4s fan unit and hope the stock ESC will handle it. Plane flies great but was disappointed with stock fan but it may have been an easy fix. This will be my first time I have replaced stock powerplant but am actually looking forward to it. Like the plane but it needs a taller front nose gear. First two attempts I did not get airborne and elevators were maxed out. Third attempt I just went for it and it finally lifted off at high angle. Not a pretty takeoff but I like the plane, it flies great.


  6. Update on vibration 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Dec 2014

    The vibration is the sleeve on the shaft the fan is screwed into. From factory its not all the way on the shaft causing a wobble. Simply loosen set screw and push sleeve back towards motor, re tighten set screw and vib gone. It takes a little surgery and pulling off plastic esc cover but with hot glue its not bad. After all a hobby is something to tinker with in spare time or sit with your wife and watch lifetime tv shows. I know what choice I made


  7. An eagle, not a falcon 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Dec 2014

    This is a good value in a 64mm EDF. Very stable airframe capable of scale maneuvers. Landing this jet is a piece of cake as it almost floats in. No need to program flaperons. It's more F.O.D. resistant than the RocHobby F-16 due to the lack of underside cheater holes. The F-15 also has a shorter takeoff roll. Still it is slightly slower than the F-16 even without the tanks and missles. It gets about 4 minutes WOT on a new 2200, 40C, but you can count on at least 3.

    The fuselage slot for the battery is very tight side-to-side. I've modified my batteries with a duct tape pull tab to aid in removing from the Velcro base.

    One small negative. The nose cone is thin shell plastic. It would have been better if it was breakaway foam magnetic like the F-16.

    I'm having way too much fun with these models!


  8. May be waiting til spring 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2014

    Bought this plane knowing it might be a while before it's maiden. I too have a quite the vibration at 1/3 throttle that goes away above that. I hope it doesn't become an issue later as this plane may sit for months before I finally get to fly it and put some batteries thru it. Hope the fan doesn't come apart after I get some stick time with it later. Other than the fan vibration, it was an easy and quick build with lots of battery room after I moved receiver to nose w servo extensions. Expect it to fly well, just hope I don't enjoy cruising it at 1/3 throttle because the fan motor absolutely howls. On the other hand it will probably turn heads and get attention. Motion told me this was normal. Maybe normal on this batch of planes but I have 6 64mm edfs and none of them vibrate like this plane. Other than that, I like the plane and look forward to flying it past 1/3 throttle on 3s 2200s.


  9. Fan Vibration Also 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2014

    Purchased this plane a few weeks ago and put together. Weather not good to do a maiden flight, but I also noticed the vibration and noise that comes from motor at 1/3 throttle. Hopefully this will not be an issue when I finally maiden (which might not be till spring).


  10. EDF Problem 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Oct 2014

    After the purchase which came very fast After finally getting a chance to put it together I did. Than when I put the receiver in and tested it the motor has a horrible vibration in it. So bad it shakes the plane 1/4 Throttle. Ive yet to call Motion but hopefully they can advise me


  11. motion rc is the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Oct 2014

    ive bought 2 edf jets from this company and all I can say is I wil be doing all my business from them...


  12. I need now 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2014

    How long do you have F-15


  13. Hand Launches with no problem. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jul 2014

    Hand launching on edf maiden flights are scary and I don't like doing it. I have no choice on where I fly. I Hand launched the f15 about 40 deg on full throttle and the jet kept the nose up attitude and climbed. Jet is stable and has enough power to do loops. Will also fly slow and preditable. I used a bit more of nose heavy cg bu putting the battery closest to the front as possible without any mod.


  14. cg? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jun 2014

    I have purchased an F9f Panther in the past. According to the manual the CG is 1 3/4" back from the LE. Swell. My F9 balances at 1 1/4. She flies like a dream. my question/concern : is the manual CG for the F15 correct?


  15. F15 !!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jun 2014

    Perfect balance edf with 2200 all the way forward and it's fast too motion rc is doing good with these 64 mm jets
