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. 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!


  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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.


  5. 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


  6. 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.


  7. 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.

  8. 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 ,


  9. 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!!


  10. 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


  11. 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.


  12. Freewing dH Mosquito

    Posted by D. Rogers on 29th Sep 2013

    First off, don't be lulled into a false sense of security if the gear door hinges appear to be secure. It appears the mold release agent has not been cleaned well before painting. The paint releases pretty easily. The gear door hinges were attached by the factory after the model was painted and the underside paint is brittle and so the hinges will come off, sooner or later. Be fore-warned! I removed mine, scuffed the paint off and reattached with contact cement.

    The clevises for the gear doors were only on the push rods by a few threads so I made new, longer linkage for the doors from some park flyer hardware.

    There were two servo extension wires in the box marked for the gear doors, but I think they were meant for the main gear as that is where it was really needed.

    Much thanks to Motion RC and Rich Baker for the super service and support! Great job guys!!!


  13. One very nice airplane !

    Posted by Dave (dahawk) Halker on 21st Sep 2013

    First off, the Motion RC team is simply unrivaled when it comes to total service and customer support. Timely responses to questions and meaningful technical assistance make for an exceptional buying experience. They set the bar.

    When I first bought the Freewing Mossy, I followed my normal Modus of Operandi in first searching out build threads and you tube videos. I always like to gain as much knowledge as I can about a plane and necessary mods and enhancements. The supplied manual is very lacking. In fact, I’d go so for as to say it’s a complete joke. It appeared there was a lot of conflicting information on the RC Groups forum.

    The build task ahead of me was not overly daunting but there were a few areas that I knew would need some special attention such as tuning the servo actuated gear doors.
    So, I waited about a month until Rich Baker from RC Informer.com could compile a build and flight review video. I’m glad I waited. Rich has produced several review videos for Motion and all are excellent. This one was no exceptional. The build video clarifies many of the details left out in the manual. Rich also provided excellent input into the recommended CG for this plane which turns out to be far further forward than what the manual suggests. It’s closer to 70mm than the 95mm-105mm range stated in the manual. I also added 1 oz of lead in the tail to obtain an optimal balance. The lipo I use is a 4S 3300mah 30 C.
    Be patient and take your time building this model . For the average ARF builder, it will take more time than normal. There are a lot of very cool creature features such as the landing gear, counter rotating props, separate tail wheel servo, lights, fighter/bomber nose configuration. Again, follow RC Informer’s video and you can’t go wrong.

    When I finally maidened the Mossy, it was almost uneventful. I fly off a grass field that is rather shaggy and she had no problems ground handling. The servoless retracts are metal trunnion with a lot of spring loaded shock absorption. I made sure I had gained enough airspeed before rotating and she climbed out scale like. Made a few trim circuits and was surprised that she did not need any aileron trim. Zero. A few clicks of up and presto, she was trimmed. As Rich Baker from RC Informer had suggested in his video, I reduced the elevator throw. She has a big elevator. There was a slight yaw action for which I later added a very slight mix to correct. Dropped the mains and simultaneously received a lot of “ ooh’s and ahh’s” from our pitt area (peanut gallery) as the doors opened and the gear slowing came down. Total flight time was right at 5 minutes. With about 3.8/cell remaining, I did not suck up all of the lipo’s capacity and I know with some more milliamps, flight times will be longer depending on how the throttle is managed.

    When you give her the berries, she screams. She’s plenty fast for me. The twin engines have a nice roar to them as she performs a low pass down the centerline.

    Want a head-turner? This is it. Though I’m very impressed with the overall quality of this model, there are a couple of minor details that I would have liked to have seen such as better cockpit detailing. There is none. No pilots are included so you’re on your own there and they are small.

    The Freewing Mossy is a keeper. You won’t be disappointed.

    Looking forward to buying more planes from Motion RC !


  14. Flight Review of Mossie

    Posted by Dave Gianakos on 8th Sep 2013

    I wrote a review earlier before I got to fly this airplane, but now I have flown it a number of times. It is a delight to fly! It flies very scale-like, or at least that's how I try to fly it. The excessive tailwheel length bugged me so I went in there and lowered the tailwheel servo into the fuse so that it looks a little more scale. Wasn't hard to do, and I think it looks better, and flies and handles as well as it did before.
    I'm thinking I might eventually buy another one, strip it, and paint it up in the colors of planes used by the USAAF's 25th BG out of Watton. It is a very cool blue color with red tail, and invasion stripes on the bottoms of the wings and fuse.
    Another great buy, tons of fun to fly!


  15. Mosquito pretty good

    Posted by Dave Gianakos on 4th Jul 2013

    This was my first Freewing rc plane. I have put the plane together, but not flown it yet. It did have a defect in the electronics of the left main gear, and am awaiting a replacement. However, the gear door and sequencing of the working gear is really impressive. There are a lot of cool details molded into the foam plane and plastic fairings that are well detailed.
    Like others, I pulled off the hinges for the doors and reglued them with epoxy. Some were just about to come off with a very slight tug. Recommend doing this to save future headaches.
    The instruction sheet is abysmal; worst I have seen even for a Chinese-made model with English instructions. Many things are left to the imagination to figure out. Motion RC already has plans to come up with some usable instructions in English help on the website.
    I would like to say that Motion RC is the best company I have ever dealt with in RC. BOTH owners called me when I reported the problem with the gear. A replacement is already in the mail. I think (hope) that the Mosquito will be a good flyer, but I am very happy finding this excellent company for my future rc needs.
