Freewing de Havilland Mosquito Twin Engine RC Warbird - Receiver Ready

    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. Outstanding Aircraft

    Posted by Rick from Austin,TX on 12th Oct 2014

    I am on my 3rd Mosquito! I have been in RC 15+ years and I think it is the best plane EVER! I lost my second Mossie to a bad receiver---I suspected it was bad but said "OK, let's try it". The Mosquito build is medium difficult---watch the Motion RC build video, take notes, double-check your work. Just superb workmanship--wing bolts etc go into solid brass receiving nuts; plastic and wood plates are well designed and sturdy. Very few prop strikes with this aircraft and landing gear are ROBUST and well designed. If I had to give up ALL my RC planes except one; I would keep the Mosquito----it is just that good! FREEWING did a magnificent job! THANKS Motion RC!!!!


  2. Flies on Rails - Greased landings on grass

    Posted by Paul Lange on 18th Sep 2014

    The build is a little fiddly on the gear doors (remove paint from hinges and doors then re-attach each and proceed) to dial in each door. At first glance the entire assembly seems overwhelming.....approach each step separately and take your time the plane comes together nicely. The only challenges are in fact the gear doors....I also found using only one nut behind the spinner backplate - run up all the way into the threads against the motor shaft plate will seat the spinners for their exact placement - will run absolutely true with no wobble, quiet and smooth as honey. This Airframe is rock steady to fly, fully acrobatic, stable and fast....the spring action landing gear are perfect for grass field operations. I removed the LED's in the wing leading edges and replaced with white and used magnets for both nose cones (easily swappable and strong).....Five minute flight durations on 4s 40c 3300mAh LiPo. The Airframe is a dark imposing plane in the sky and a very pleasing smooth excellent performer -FAST.....landings are easy to grease in.....this is one kick arse twin - FreeWing nailed in on this one too!!!!

    Thanks to MotionRC and the crew for excellent customer service and answering a couple of questions.....additionally there is a vast resource of information-tips and comments on RCGroups.com web threads for this airframe


  3. Baddest Twin motor Plane

    Posted by BOBBY CRUZ (BOBBYBASSHEAD) on 30th Aug 2014

    This Plane Rocks........i have 20 flights, 5min fly time on each flight. Do not Be intimidated with the Build. Take your time and Do not rush. Its so easy to build and yes their will be some adjusting with the landing gear doors .....to make it easy'er Rich from RCinformer has a video on how to build .
    it looks Complicated to Build but it was easy. the ESC to program the throttle was Diff from all other ESCs i have Programed. Since their is no Manual for the ESC i had to contact motionrc on help on how to for the ESC. Matt maryan and Alpha Enos Helped me out and got my esc setup over the phone and email. so flying this Plane is sooooooooooooooooooooooo Easy and FUN. landing gear is really strong and no nose over at all. out of 20 flights only one prop was broken. i flew with the admiral 4s 2200 and only get 5 min. i used the admiral 4s 3000mah and only got 1 min extra. i used the Admiral 4s 3600 mah and only got 6 min. im not using the L.E.D.s dnt need them. if you do use the L.e.d.s then you will only have 4 min flight time on all the Batterys i listed above. she handels 10-12 mph winds. anything higher winds like 15-18 use a the 4s admiral 3600mah for more weight and get 5 min flight time.
    If you can fly the P51 mustang and b25 bomber then you can fly the Freewing Mosquito . Money well spent and im Loving it


  4. New build going well

    Posted by Bob on 26th Jul 2014

    Haven't quite finished it, but just lacking balancing and painting. Watching the video first, and then going back to it while working on the matching component helped tremendously, Especially for the landing gear doors. The plane was missing the exhaust port trim on one side, and a call to Motion RC got that problem solved quickly. One thing I do on all my multi-engine planes is to put each motor on a separate channel, that way I can mix rudder to the throttle's which greatly helps taxiing by reducing the throttle on the side your turning to. I use a 20% reduction, and leave it in place all the time, as it also helps on turns.
    One thing I didn't see mentioned on the video is that the landing gear is side specific, and mine was not marked in any manner, so it was trial and error to get it right.


  5. JUST A GREAT RC aircraft

    Posted by Rick on 16th Jul 2014

    I like this aircraft SO MUCH I ordered a second one after having the first one for less than two months. It is an outstanding aircraft and the Motion RC "Build" video is the very best! Everyone at my field loves how the plane looks, how it flies "hands off", the robust landing gear. I have flown my Mosquito about 10 times so far and it gets better each flight. ABSOLUTELY no need for flaps! Plenty of power to "cruise" at 50%. So, Go watch "633 Squadron" on YouTube and then order one---you will love it!


  6. Lacking fit and finish

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Jul 2014

    The mosquito is an impressive model when viewed from far, but at close up, details to quality are lacking. Paint and overspray need to be removed prior to gluing, nothing fits the way it should. Huge gaps need to be filled with glue then sanded then painted. Then you have the gear doors, don't even bother, they just don't work. They bind so much they short the entire system out, I finally after 9 hours gave up and took them off, after attempting to shape them, sand them, adjust them. The one design which needs to be fixed is the motor mounts with landing gear attached underneath, bad idea, if you have a rough landing, the entire motor will knock loose or crack.
    I have been flying and building for 15 yrs and this model was a mess, that's why it is so cheap. I can't believe they call PNP. Motion does have a nice build video, and if you,like to craft a PNP model and enjoying painting a new model then go for it.


  7. First Freewing Aircraft Purchase

    Posted by Rick on 23rd Jun 2014

    Purchased 6/2014. Acft arrived perfect condition. Very nice detail, design and hardware. Retracts HD and awesome! Freewing really put some thought into design and made this one great looking "must have" airplane. Only BAD item is very poor, no-detail, odd translation instructions--for that only 4.5 stars. Be very careful to understand everything you are doing, locate all the parts and test fit. For example, retracts are wing-specific due to manufacturer added toe-in on wheels. I would easily buy another Mosquito---just a great looking airplane and love the design and work they put into it. Retracts are premium metal gear! Motion RC was outstanding--selected 4-6 day (free) shipping; plane arrived at door third day.


  8. Awesome product with NO disappointments

    Posted by Sam Barnett on 21st May 2014

    I'm a big WWII twin engine warbird fan so I naturally gravitated to the Mosquito. I was really torn between the HH version and this one, but after looking at scale details the Freewing option was the natural choice. The customer service from Motion RC was great...even after we ran into a few bumps caused by me...ordered the wrong battery and had to straighten it out by phone. The kit arrived packaged well and as a result there was no damage to the components. The build was a little time consuming...would have been incredibly time consuming without the rcinformer youtube video....many thanks. If you purchase this kit, do yourself a favor and throw the manual away without opening it and refer to the video. If you are in the mood for a good chuckle, go ahead and read the manual...it really is kinda funny if you approach it with the right mindset. Most time consuming part of the build for me was adjusting the gear doors...once that was done, everything else was smooth as silk. I have flown the model about 10 times between last week and this week. Once it was trimmed out...about one minute through the first flight...the plane flew like a dream and I had no issues bringing it in under full throttle about a foot off the ground. Sport aerobatics are super easy and predictable...take the advice on the video and dial your elevator throw way down...it pays off. The Mosquito handles wind really well...probably due to the weight. She is a dream to land as is, but I will be adding flaps...just like I have on my other seven warbirds...mostly to preserve wear and tear over time. I expect to be flying this one for many years to come....Awesome Plane. If there is a downside, it's the size...she's pretty big and won't comfortably fit in anything small for transport to your field.


  9. a field of dreams land anywhere

    Posted by KD King on 19th May 2014

    this is a very excellent flyer your dreams will come true in flight the best landing gear I have seen on any 14 mm plane very nice motion RC continue on getting the best War birds in the market need more larger 17 millimeter planes selections


  10. Worth The Wait

    Posted by Nick on 28th Mar 2014

    Had to pre-order but it was worth the wait. It came double boxed and it was packed very well with no dents or dings. I have yet to fly it as I am still building it the build is very easy but the gear doors are difficult to get them set up without the servo stalling out I might leave them off if I cant get them to work correctly. I did have one issue with one gear door it had a pin broken off but I used a very small screw to replace the pin. The build video that Motion RC put on the website has helped me get the plane together. I cannot wait to fly it! I will post another review after the maiden flight.


  11. Modified Mossie still flies great!

    Posted by Dave Gianakos on 26th Dec 2013

    In my last review, I wrote that I might repaint my Mossie in the colors of a USAAF plane from the 25th BG out of Watton, England. These aircraft were used for photo reconnaissance, chaff dropping, weather reporting for bombers, etc. In most cases they were completely unarmed. I really liked the repaint I did of this RAF Mossie; I added a blog in the Forums under Gallery area with a couple of pics. The plane still flies as great as before; I highly recommend this plane for those who want a twin that is not seen all that much in the hobby. I will probably buy another one in time and just keep it in the stock RAF paint scheme, which looks very cool, too.

  12. Very Detailed

    Posted by Doug on 22nd Dec 2013

    Have not fully built Aircraft ,but taking time to go slow, build video great to watch first , highly recommend this Plane ,


  13. Almost Five Stars

    Posted by Bob D. on 21st Dec 2013

    The plane arrived well packaged with no damage to any parts. Very nice quality model. Parts mostly fit well and it took about 5 hours in total to build.
    If it wasn't for the build video that I watched before I started it would have taken me a lot longer. The instructions are terrible, thanks for the build video!!
    I did have a bad tail wheel servo and called Motion RC, and within hours they mailed out a new tail wheel servo to me. Try that with Hobbyking!! Awesome customer service!!


  14. received my Musquito today:)

    Posted by Chevstar, Berlin,NH on 3rd Dec 2013

    Received my mosquito today and was impressed with the packaging and finish on aircraft everything was in the box and in mint condition. Impressed with fit of wings and engine nassels very nice. Can't build till after Christmass


  15. The Mosquito is very scale and flies great

    Posted by Dennis Friesel on 1st Dec 2013

    I purchased the kit version of this plane by mistake, and Motion RC was VERY accommodating in exchanging my purchase for the plug and play version. The parts as they come out of the box are very clean and detailed. Assembly was done by following the ASSEMBLY VIDEO on the MOTION RC Web site. I highly recommend use of this video during the assembly. It really makes the assembly of the retractable gear and gear doors very easy, as well as gives paint numbers for touch up after assembly. The finished product is a really scale looking rendition of the Mosquito.

    I maiden-ed the plane today and was much impressed with its performance, both on the ground and in the air. I used the balance location recommended in the video (not the plans) and the planes first lift off from the ground was very smooth with very little elevator input. It is fast and smooth handling, and does all the basic aerobatic maneuvers well. I slowed the plane gradually while holding up elevator as needed to keep the plane flying level, and it just mushed slowly earthward, no stall break or snap tendency. On landing I find it best to keep a little throttle in until the wheels hit the ground to get that sweet soft touch down. All in all, I really like this war bird . It looks and flies great.
