Freewing de Havilland Mosquito Twin Engine RC Warbird - Receiver Ready - FW30211P

The Freewing de Havilland Mosquito is truly a site to behold is the sky. We put this plane through its paces, and it held up to everything we threw at it. The Freewing Mosquito has nylon hinges on all the control surfaces as opposed to the simple foam hinges on the majority of foam RC planes. While flaps are optional, we find the plane slows for landing just fine without flaps. If you have never flown a twin engine plane, you must experience the thrust and sound of a twin engine plane. Second generation, shock absorbing landing gear are also included to help make landings smooth and minimize retract damage on tough landings. While assembly is simple, do be prepared to spend a few hours building the plane.

Features:

  • Durable EPO foam construction
  • Nylon hinges on all control surfaces
  • Electric servoless landing gear with heavy-duty shock absorbers and sequential doors
  • Counter rotating props
  • Bright LED navigation lights
  • 2 Brushless motors,2 ESCs, and 7 servos installed

  1. ventalation 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2016

    I just got my Mosquito and opened the box. arrived in tack.
    I have been reading the reviews. Airflow across the ESC's is nonexistent. So I broke out the flat screwdriver and large hemostats. The vents under the motors are there non functionable until the screw driver and hemos chewed at the foam. Now I have vents that work and blow straight on the ESCs. Try it. I will continue as the build goes forward .


  2. Complicated Aircraft 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2016

    I have had 4 of these aircraft--lost 3 in two days to a bad transmitter! Great aircraft but complicated. Landing gear doors are curved; difficult to get "just right". I found out that some of the props can be warped which effects your thrust. Landing gear are top notch! This aircraft extremely well-built. Twin engine aircraft are neat, but a hassle--especially if one motor develops more thrust than the other. Great airplane experience, but I am done with TWINS and RETRACTS.


  3. No More Twins For Me 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2015

    Thanks really has to go out to Motion RC for always trying to give us a well rounded choice of Planes... With that said, This plane turned out to be a nightmare... I would recommend that you have a lot building skills, and do watch the build video by RCEnformer... He does a wonderful job of helping you get this plane ready for flight... BTW, WHY, doesn't this plane have any cooling vents for any of the electronics??? I will say this for it, It's a very cool looking plane... Took a very long time to finish this build, but after watching the build video over and over, I got it together... Now we come to the maiden flight... Small mishap... Not enough speed on a grass field, and she stalled to the right... Only broke one blade off the right prop... Seconded flight, I choose to let a pilot with years of experience take her up for me... Well, all was going well, but as the plane was doing a very gentle left turn, the plane just rolled over and into the ground she went... Not sure what went wrong, but I was so glad that I had a very good pilot flying her or I would have thought it was something I did wrong... Now I'm sure that something went wrong in the plane... I would not recommend this plane because it's too expensive, and takes way too much time to put her together to have it go into the ground for an unknown reason... I did do a review on the Waco also, Wonderful flying plane...


  4. Great warbird 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Dec 2015

    I had to give this great plane a 4 because the manual is bad. The guys at MRC get 5 stars. Had a problem with light board, MRC is sending replacement part. I hope this plane flies as good as it looks. Had no trouble with retracts just take your time. RC informer has a good video on installing retracts. I added invasion stripes and pilot really looks good. Too late to fly this season.


  5. Great product! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2015

    prompt shipping and kit arrived in great condition. Assembly went great despite the worst instructions I have seen. The YouTube video helped a lot! I went with the flaps and figured them out myself with no issues. Waiting to get enough time for the maiden flight.


  6. Best Aircraft in my Fleet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2015

    Just rec'd my 4th Mosquito---I just love the airplane and it's WWII history. I take 3 weeks to assemble---checking every servo, masking/painting over slots for flap servos. I double-check everything and enjoying slow, methodical assembly. I enjoy taking several hours to fit the geardoors perfectly and ensure they are non-binding. Freewing just makes a phenomenal PNP......the fit of the spinners, the landing gear's robustness---all near perfect. (I have made 75-100 landings and never ever had the landing gear fail/fold or strip the servo.) This is not a "slap it together in 3-4 hours" aircraft in my opinion...take your time, enjoy it! THANKS MOTION RC----you sell great products and you run a great business with great service to modelers!

    Review of the Freewing Mosquito RC model 1400 mm Wingspan

    This model is a quality production. The build is demanding but as other reviewers have suggested a patient approach is well worth the effort and will result in a convincing scale airplane which flies well. My approach was to follow the excellent advice in the build video by Rich of RC Informer.
    My experiences for the most part were similar to his. The nacelle assemblies are trickiest part and I discovered that over attention to the alignment of the underwing joints left the overwing alignment askew. Fortunately I was using 30 minute epoxy which gave me plenty of time to adjust.
    Removal of overspray of the paint scheme into the joint surfaces led to generous gaps to be filled with adhesive and I resorted to hot glue to accomplish this in some areas.
    An example of the quality of the manufacture of this model was the excellent fit of the wings to the fuselage. I found them to slide firmly but completely into the fuselage recesses and when fully home the four securing screws dropped perfectly into their threaded receptacles for a snug and secure joint.
    Rich points out that the landing gear pins are secured by numerous “c” clips which should be treated with contact cement to prevent loss. This is sage advice. I would advocate an inspection of these upon receipt of a model as I discovered one of the main wheel axles clips to be missing right out of the box. Fortunately this axle can be secured by a pair of grub screws as there are two threaded screw holes in the trailing link to suit that purpose. Perhaps Motion RC should consider making the “c” clips available as spares. My local fastener specialist store could not provide clips of less than 3mm. Most of the clips in the landing gear are smaller than this, Especially the one securing the tail wheel axle.
    I found the build video advice concerning CG and elevator throw to be accurate as was the advice from other reviewers concerning maintaining power right down to the ground during landing. I have flown the model with a variety of 4S batteries and have had to install an ounce of tailweight under the tail securing plate as suggested in the build video.
    Synchronising the motors is covered by other reviewers and worked for my DX6i TX /RX set up.
    ie Trims should be performed separately with throttle trim at zero and a full throttle stick position set for the first power up to set throttle end point, drawing the throttle stick to idle after a couple of seconds. On completion the motors should both start up simultaneously as the throttle is advanced.
    Despite having contra rotating props the initial Take Off run tends to result in a marked pull to the right requiring some nifty rudder correction. This can lead to overcorrection and an erratic uncontrollable swerving. This is not unusual in a twin. My scratch built JU88 does the same thing. However, a few runs will result in straighter roll and once some speed is built up the directional stability will return after which the model flies very nicely. I resorted to high rudder rates for T/O and switch to lower rates in the air. The airplane turns well on the rudder alone and if high rudder rates are retained in the air you might find reverse aileron required to prevent over banking. Low rates all around while airborne will result in smooth scale flight.
    I couldn’t resist the temptation to install the flap mod as I had the parts required available. It is pretty obvious how to do it. The result is a scale look during landing approach and a more gentle touch down can be achieved than when flapless . The need to maintain some power to touch down still applies. The recesses for the flap servos are configured as for ailerons with both flap servo arms outboard of their respective servos. A servo signal reverser is required in one lead if surgery of the servo recess is to be avoided.
    I have dispensed with the lights as they are not scale and in my view detract from the otherwise excellent scale appearance. The model has generated interest among my club members for its great looks and performance.


  8. enjoyable flyer 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2015

    Although there was some controversy over the landing gear doors, I purchased this plane because I wanted a twin engine plane and the P-38 was no longer made. I am quite happy with the performance of the plane.
    I built it as the gentleman on the RCInformer forum said to. My gear doors were a major pain and it took some time to get everything right. It all worked out in the end.
    The pros of the plane are:
    1 flies very stable
    2 landing gear is very sturdy
    3 very good looking doing high speed, low pass
    The cons of the plane are:
    1 gear doors a major pain
    2 don't care for the pink landing lights, need to be white
    The cons are the reason for the 4 star rating. Other than those cons, I'm quite happy with the plane and enjoy flying it.
    I run the Admiral 3000 battery and had to add 3/8ths oz. of weight in the tail.


  9. An all around good airplane! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2015

    This is my second Mosquito. Crashed the first one. When I fixed the foam, I somehow crossed some battery wires and burned up my servos and landing gear servos. Once I added up what it costed me to buy replacement foam and parts, it wasn't much more to buy new.

    I've got about 40 flights on this airplane now (both airplanes).
    Pro:
    Positive comments about the plane from club members
    Large size, details, shock absorbers, gear doors, construction and foam is good. Gentle flyer, but it's prone to tip stalls when turning and landing, so keep your speed up! Keep some power on during landing, don't cut your throttle!
    I use 4s, 3300 batteries. Plane is pretty quick! With battery all the way aft, I still needed to add weight in the tail for proper CG. CG is at 85-90 from leading edge. Manual is wrong.
    Freewing listened to complaints. Second airframe is improved. parts fit better. Areas to be glued are not painted. gear door brackets are properly glued.
    Shock absorbing landing gear are great! Land too hard, you just bounce back up in the air.
    Cons:
    Gear doors are a little work to assemble. But better than before
    Cannot see LED lights in the day/sunset. Landing lights are not white lights. LED board impossible to figure out! Will burn out if plugged in backward. No instructions!
    No Pilot figures

    I like the size and all of the details. Landing gear and doors look great! Love the shock absorbers, but maybe too springy. Must land with power. If you don't grease the landing, the shocks with bounce you back up for a bouncy landing.
    The 1 hour video from RCinformer is good but a little over the top. Don't need to do all that fussing with the Nacelles. My second plane, I didn't add the BEC. I hooked up both ESCs using the Y cable and didn't pull any pins and everything has been good.

  10. Excellent Model-Gear doors 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2015

    Motion RC . .
    This is a great model. Well Built and put together. I can see that the gear itself will work well on my home grass field at our club.
    I believe this is an older plane in your total offering. Keeping this in mind with the presence it has in the market you could easily see popularity rating go up if you have the gear and dear doors pre installed in factory.
    This will take away alot of the issue posed on line on the subject. Otherwise another stellar addition.


  11. Best of my 20-plus warbirds 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2015

    With 45 flights logged this spring on our grass airfield, I have to say that this is hands down my favorite foamie warbird, for a number of reasons. First, it's rock solid...very durable...and loves grass fields. The retracts are by far the strongest of all my warbirds. The stance of the gear is wide -- I have yet to hit a wingtip or nose over. Most of my landings have been clean, but I had a few harder bounces -- the gear remained solid, as did everything else. The suspension system really works well. I like that all the controls have nylon hinges, rather than foam. As for flying, the Mossy trimmed out quickly and flies on rails. I like it quite nose-heavy, and just use a larger battery (3200 mah, 30C, 4-cell), or go to a smaller battery if I want a little less "nose." The plane is fast, looks great in the sky (my eyes aren't what they used to be, so good orientation is a must). It has a great sound on low fly-bys, which it does very smoothly. That's the word with this warbird -- smooth. A word of caution: I spent several winter nights putting it together, following RC Informer's build guide, and it really paid off. Getting the naciles to fit was a bit challenging, but the build guide, wax paper, and good 30-minute epoxy did the trick. One other thing -- I really worked to get the gear doors to open and close tight. It can be done, but be patient. I did not need to put both push rods in the same hole, as suggested in the build guide. They worked better for me by putting them in separate holes. I also used a heat gun (gently) to get the foam doors to close to a tight seal (it worked great -- they fit tight and the servos don't buzz). The plane likes a little throttle on landing until the wheels touch, and rolls out nicely on grass (with that wonderful wide stance). Again, no nose overs, smooth as silk, even for this "early intermediate" flyer, and durable as heck. Absolutely love it. Freewing is a cut above for foamie warbirds, in my opinion, as is Motion RC, without a doubt.


  12. Poor instructions 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2015

    The instructions are so incomplete. Someone should rewrite all the instructions in clear and detailed steps. Thanks goodness for the hour video of the build.


  13. Just Getting Started 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2015

    After reading every review, checking out what the net has to say, watching every video I could find I decided to order the Freewing Mosquito. I wanted a FMS P-38, but by the time I got my pennies saved it had been discontinued, I hope they bring it back. Anyway back to the subject, in reading about this model I learned it needs a pilot... Can anyone tell me what scale it is, need to know so I can put in the right size. I e-mailed customer service two days ago and have not gotten a answer yet. I took the rear stab to home depot today and got all three color matched no problem, and it's just about 3 bucks per color, just have them make you up one of the little samples and you will have more touch up paint then you will ever use. Got parts laid out for the wings, engine cowls and the tricky gear doors. Going to tackle that first while I wait to find out scale size. Will keep everyone posted as we progress.


  14. More than just PnP 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2015

    This is a very nice model, Lots of details but a LOT of work to build. No way this is a 4 hr. build if you want more than out of the box build. And would like to see upgrades for the flaps.
    But would buy another one. Thanks


  15. It is a joy to hand launch. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2015

    I built her from all the foam replacement parts. ONLY replacement foam parts.
    I had some GWS 400 sized gearboxes available & some 3500 KV helicopter motors.

    It goes straight up to about 70' Then I level off & fly it. Using APC E props I know it can easily fly on 1 motor forever. It pulls out of my hand at about 60 degrees with 1 motor running.

    All the painted SPARE PARTS ? PERFECT paint matches.
    It is now my favorite display plane in the basement.
