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. 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.

  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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.


  5. 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.


  6. 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


  7. 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.


  8. Well done kit!! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2015

    I like the strong landing. Good paint job. Gear doors are a bit troublesome.Lots of wiring, but all worked out well. Lights? Extra blades are nice. The best of the foamies I've had.
    Good Company, good commo.


  9. DETAILED, FAST AND IMPRESSIVE 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2014

    Well, where do I start? This plane was a replacement for my gone but not forgotten FMS FW-190, "THE BLACK KNIGHT" Loved that plane!!!!! Anyway, as always Motion lived up to it's reputation. The shippment was timely and no dmg. I did my inventory and all the parts were there and looked good. I did not start the build right away, worked on other planes. So, when I did start I made up my mind to add my own touches to the mossie. At my own pace I detailed and painted the cockpit and added a pilot. Painted the exhausts and smoke streaks,spinners,guns, landing gear plastic parts and bottom side of the A/C. Viewed the Motion build video and got the gear doors to fit properly. SWEET!!!! Love the gear action and the strength. Anyway, I now have about 12 flights on the Mossie already shot down my buddys ME-109, YEP ITS TRUE!!!! The battery super heated and she plowed into the woods. Lost power. Totaled but rebuildable. As for flying its hands off trimmed and it presents a beautiful classic WWII picture of a unique british twin in the air? ITS A SHOW STOPPER. People are always asking; "where did I get the Mossie", "Wow, its fast @ 60% power!!!" "Look how stable it is!!!!" Etc,Etc,Etc. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, landing are a P.O.C. (piece of cake). I have not upgraded with flaps yet so approach speed must be on the money. Stay hot and all will be right with this war bird. The Mossie is not my 190, but I love it anyway!!!! Great Plane FreeWing.


  10. Outstanding Aircraft 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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!!!!


  11. Flies on Rails - Greased landings on grass 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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


  12. Baddest Twin motor Plane 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st 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


  13. New build going well 4 Star Review

    Posted by 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.


  14. JUST A GREAT RC aircraft 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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!


  15. Lacking fit and finish 2 Star Review

    Posted by 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.
