64mm Freewing F9F Panther EDF Jet - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ10311P(F1701B)

Are you looking for your first EDF jet or are you a more advanced pilot looking for a new EDF? Look no further. While great for people new to EDF jets, The Freewing F9F Panther is fast and agile enough for experienced pilots too. The Freewing F9F is one of our favorite jets. While this F9F Panther EDF is not for beginner flyers, it is perfect for the intermediate flyer looking for their first EDF jet. There is not an easier EDF jet to fly. Unlike many EDF jets, the Freewing F9F actually floats for an extended period of time without throttle (assuming a correct CG). The F9F is powerful enough to loop and has a fantastic roll rate. We recommend hand launching and belly landing in the grass for pilots new to EDF jets. The F9F is built from durable EPO foam and uses nylon hinges. While a 1600 mAh LiPo is recommended, a 2200 mAh battery can be used by more experienced pilots with minor modification to the battery compartment. We highly recommend a high wing trainer for beginners and proficiency with at least one low wing plane before attempting to fly an EDF jet.

Features:

  • Durable EPO foam construction
  • Nylon hinges on all control surfaces (superior to a foam hinge)

  1. Awesome jet! Belly land only!

    Posted by David on 24th Oct 2014

    This jet is very durable an fun! If you use the landing gear she will be tail heavy as there is no way to get the batt all the way forward. I use an 1800 mah pushed all the way forward and she flies like a dream. I also use a 2200 mah pro, tight fit but with a very slight down on the elevator and she flies nice and straight. I put a coat of acrylic paint on the bottom for durability and all is well.


  2. Freewing F9F rates a C

    Posted by William A. Leyrer on 21st Oct 2014

    Greetings,

    I wanted to follow up on the Freewing F9F fiasco as I have been experiencing it.

    First off, and I will once again reiterate an earlier comment on the plane....
    I have NEVER experienced a plane as uncharateristically tail heavy as this plane!!! Especially with such a short fuse length.

    No matter what I try, once in the air this plane just wants to go nose up! And I mean straight up!
    I just don't understand it... On the stand it CG's at level to slightly nose heavy, right where it should be.

    The first flight, saw it rocket up and rocket down. (effected repairs)

    The second flight, w/1&1/2oz lead in the nose PLUS a 1600mAh 3-cell shoved as far forward as possible saw it as still tail heavy and uncontrollable thus, rocket up and rocket down. (effected repairs)

    The third flight, again w/1&1/2oz lead in the nose PLUS 1800mAh 3-cell moved to allow for the correct CG point - favoring nose heavy - and STILL tail heavy!!! Now, for the third flight I asked the best pilot at our field to fly the F9F (taking me out of the equation) and the results were the same...... Nose Up, No Control, Rocket Down!!! (Tired of effecting repairs!!!)

    I have discussed this situation with multiple people, had pilots varify the CG on the plane prior to flights, and had a VERY experienced pilot attempt to fly this plane, ALL with the same results.
    We are Bumfuddled!!!

    Other than trying a 4S pack (which I doubt would fit without carving), I am out of ideas on this plane.

    Bottom line is I was really dissapointed, especially after reading so many great reviews on the F9F.

  3. WOW. She's a Jet ,,,

    Posted by Dave on 19th Oct 2014

    I am using a 1800 Lipo all the way forward still have to launch her a little level , not up , fly Great ! This is my first Jet , and I love it , build time not bad , flying DX6I X all from Motion R.C. Thanks everything is working awesome !! Have fun " Flyboys"


  4. Questionable CG

    Posted by Paul Gruenwald on 13th Oct 2014

    Everything about this plane is great, except the recommended or even guessed at center of gravity.I have tried a 1600 and 1800mh battery and all it does is want to fly straight up in the air and flip over. After seeing a video on YouTube of someone else having the exact same problem I switch to a 2200mh I've even glued a washer some carbon fiber rods in the nose section and mid body. And a strip of plastic over some of the carbon rods. On full throttle it still seems to want to climb. Compared to the original which I destroyed it feels almost twice as heavy and flies like a dream. Overall having a shit load of fun with it. By using my usual balancing techniques it feels very heavy on the nose, wrong. I know it doesn't feel right but it flies.


  5. F9F Follow Up

    Posted by William A. Leyrer on 9th Oct 2014

    Greetings,

    Well, I had the opportunity to maiden the F9F last weekend and most unfortunately, it did not go well. I loaded up an Admiral 1600mAh 3-cell as far nose forward as possible. I tracked up and down the runway multiple times to get a feel for this EDF and every time it tracked bullit straight.
    With confidence high, I tracked down the runway one more time and eased back on the elevator. It was at that moment my F9F EDF decided to become a sounding rocket!!!!
    The nose went straight up for about 15 feet rotated 180 degrees and came straight back down like a lawn dart!!
    Needless to say, repairs were eminant.
    Deduction:
    I added the optional landing gear. Once the steerable nose gear is installed the Lipo can no longer travel far enough forward to achieve its assumed position when CGing the plane according to the specs (36mm). Therefore, unknown at the time of the maiden, the battery ends up too far aft and as a result the F9F was NOT CGed as believed.
    In order to achieve the specified CG and maintain the landing gear 1 1/2oz of weight was required up front. This may be a tad high but now it allows me ample play to move the battery around to achieve perfect CG.
    I will attempt a second flight soon, stay tuned.

  6. Good as I expected

    Posted by jack on 3rd Oct 2014

    Great little flyer. Easy to see and easy to fly. Goes fast or slow, depends upon your (left gimble) I used the required battery as a large 2200 would not fit with the additional nose servo and landing gear. But no need of a larger battery. Everyone at the field was impressed with its performance.


  7. F9F Has Arrived!!

    Posted by William A. Leyrer on 29th Sep 2014

    Greetings,

    Incredible..... My plane arrived is just 4 days (including the weekend)!

    Everything arrived safe and sound and as others have mentioned, extremely well packaged!
    I also ordered the retract kit for the F9F and I'm looking forward to getting this plane together and soaring....

    Flight review to follow...

  8. Just Great!!!

    Posted by Paul Gruenwald on 22nd Sep 2014

    As most reviewers say, excellent packaging, fast delivery and a great price. Thanks guys.


  9. Wow!

    Posted by Greg on 20th Sep 2014

    This thing is fun good and ok on speed


  10. Love this F9F

    Posted by Bill W on 20th Sep 2014

    This was my first order with Motion RC.
    Received the plane in three days, nice.

    My first F9F was about 5 years ago, different vendor.
    Members at my club, flew it more than I did.

    This Freewing F9F has a better fit and finish.
    Performance is just as good, if not better, than the first.

    I prefer a bit nose heavy, dual rates, and generous expo.
    This Is my comfort zone.

    A wonderful, fun, and inexpensive edf plane.

    Thank you Motion RC.


  11. Poor Quality Control

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Sep 2014

    Disappointed with the overall looks of the plane because the connection between the body and vertical stabilizer does not match at the top of the fuselage where the 2 pieces meet. The stabilizer section that is glued to the fuselage sits up about 1/4 inch higher so there isn't a smooth transition from the fuselage to the stabilizer. Also the yellow paint on the stabilizer section is much lighter in color then the fuselage.


  12. F9f jet

    Posted by Greg Skidmore on 17th Sep 2014

    The jet is a good one flys like a dream and lands like you want ok speed but going to up grade !


  13. Great little jet

    Posted by Bill "fly it like you stole it" on 10th Sep 2014

    Easy to put together. I use 3s 2200mha all the way forward and it flights great. I have someone to hand launch slight up and light toss.
    It will veer to the right and be ready! Once up to full power have yourself a blast flying. Motionrc is the best!!!!!!!!


  14. F9F review part 2

    Posted by Jody Shaneyfelt on 7th Sep 2014

    I love it, I love it, I love it !!

    Today I got to put flights 2-5 on my Panther after borrowing an aileron servo from another plane. I set the dual rates because this bird is quick on the controls and it was an absolute joy to fly.
    I am using the recommended Admiral 1600 all the way forward and she's just a touch nose heavy, and flies perfectly like this. I wouldn't even think of going up in battery size. I will stay with the 1600.
    It has a lot of power, climbs like crazy, and has an awesome sound just with the stock set up. It sounds like a 10 or 12 blade when it passes buy, but with only a 5 blade .. :)
    I just need to buy a lot more batteries because I could fly this thing all day.
    I cant wait till the landing gear come back in stock so I can try it with them.
    5 flight summary is, don't let the cheap price fool you, this is the funnest EDF I have and will always have this plane in my fleet as long as Motion RC has parts for her...
    BUY THIS F9F.... :)


  15. A lot of bang for low bucks... :)

    Posted by Jody Shaneyfelt on 6th Sep 2014

    Motion RC is the best.
    I ordered my F9F Wed and it was at my door Friday.. :)
    The build was ok, and enjoyable except I had to reprogram the ESC because I had no throttle at first when I bound it to my transmitter.
    I took it out for the maiden today and this thing rocks on the Admiral 1600 pack that's recommended for it. It was windy and it flew well and had plenty of power. It slow flies well and is a blast at WOT.... :)
    Landing was smooth and I was very happy with the maiden.

    But I grabbed another pack and was going to do a second flight and checked all the controls prior to flight and the right side aileron servo was dead... Checked all connections and everything's good so it must be a bad servo. At least it didn't die in the flight.. :) Just a bummer that I only got to fly it once because I can see this being one of my favorite EDF's in my fleet...
    Buy this bird !! :)
