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)
  • Brushless motor, ESC and servos installed

  1. CG issues 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Feb 2016

    build - very easy everything included in kit including glue 5/5

    flying - my manual states CG 45mm from the leading edge I think it is not correct

    first flight - I put 2200 mah in the nose and slightly pushed forward so it was nose heavy (when checking with 45mm CG), hand launch resulted in uncontrollable climb and nose dive into grass - repair reglue

    second flight - pushed 2200 mah all the way into nose; failed hand launch (too slow), belly landing, no damage

    third flight - same battery location, hand launch OK, I fought strong tendency to climb whole flight, nice landing glide, belly landing

    fourth flight- same battery location, elevator trim adjusted a bit, hand launch OK, tendency to climb still, got bit disoriented while trying to land - crash into harder surface, total loss

    for me 2 stars I should be able to trust manual


  2. Performs just OK but there is potential 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Feb 2016

    I wasn't too impressed with the performance I got with a fully charged 2200 3s 3 cell battery. That being said, I don't know how the Motion RC guys got it to fly so well on a 1600 in the demonstration video. With my 2200 all the way to the front, I was still a bit tail heavy and seemed to lack power. I attempted to loop it and I momentarily lost control.

    The ailerons seemed a little sensitive on low rates. So I moved the clevis to the outermost hole on the horns.

    The build went fine except for the canopy. It didn't fit right. I had to shave off a little foam to get the canopy magnets to engage. Now the back end of it is sitting slightly up.

    I'm glad I purchased the nose steering and landing gear because I think I would have stalled it on hand-launch.

    Taxiing around on the 2200 barely puts any weight on the nosewheel. I'm going to try a 3000 3s 30c and see how that works and update my review.


  3. FAST AND FUN 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Feb 2016

    I REPLACE THE EDF WITH A 12 BLADE FAN RUNS GREAT THE PLANE IS VERY STABLE, NO ISSUE WITH A 30AMP ESC NOW ONE OF MYJ FAVORITE PLANES


  4. Good for spinning not for flying 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2016

    I've attempted to enjoy this model, but it is my least favorite only because after several attempts of honing in on the c.g. it continues to spin out of control with only a slight amount of nose high stall. I've spun this aircraft more than I've enjoyed it. Originally I was excited to have a good small flyer, but this one isn't it. I used a 2200mAh 3c. The nose required a lot of weight with the battery full forward.


  5. My First EDF 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Dec 2015

    I've always liked this little jet.
    It seems to be built well and most all the pieces fit well considering it's foam. There were a few areas that had been squeezed but it's seems to spring back if you spend a bit of time on it.
    As soon as I figure out how to fly again (last time I flew an R/C plane was a round 1976 and it's changed a lot) I'm sure this will be a favorite.
    Thanks MotionRC, great service.


  6. The elusive CG! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Dec 2015

    Build went fine. Piece of cake. Colors are great! Nicely detailed. Don't use the manufactures epoxy. If you're into RC you've got plenty of your own.

    CG?? - The manual calls for 45mm back from leading edge. Many reviewers debate this. With an 1800mah 3 cell pack in the front it feels like a brick in the nose. Wouldn't dare throw it like this. Added 1/2 oz weight in the tail cone. This seemed to balance must better. Had to open the belly panel to create a pinch point to allow a one handed overhead throw. Wish me luck. Will get back to you after maiden tomorrow.


  7. I just had to try an EDF 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Dec 2015

    This model is perfect for someone who has never had a jet before. Flying this is absolutely more fun than should be legal.
    It's not the fastest and it is challenging to launch. First launch it went into a hover, interesting to say the least. No repeats though.
    Packaging was good and it went together nicely. Had a warped hatch but took care of that.
    Space is a little tight in the bay but not undoable.
    Assembly is straightforward. I'd make sure that the paint at the wing root and fuselage side is cleaned off before gluing together.
    I thought that at my age it might be troublesome to see but it actually is fairly easy to keep in a reasonably sized window. It's fast but not overly so and its handling is excellent. The glide is a surprise and you could run out of runway waiting for it to settle.
    Highly recommended as a first jet.


  8. DEF beginner's plane 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Dec 2015

    You guys give the best service. I maiden the plane today and it
    is exactly what I needed.


  9. This was my 1st EDF 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2015

    I would like to say that this is not only a great looking flyer but is one of the best durable plane that I have. The build was simple, I would recommend the you add carbon rod for added support for the wing. I have crash this plane many times and with gorilla glue and a little bit of tape, and it up and flying once again.


  10. Great Jet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Nov 2015

    I fully agree with reviewer Anthony Bosco. The plane is a great flier but near impossible to hand launch. My first hand launch resulted in a hard right turn into a brick wall....Much hot glue later, it was back together, this time with the optional landing gear...it took off perfectly in the air, flew great and glided in to a perfect floaty landing. I took off from the steet but landed in my short grass. Last time I flew it I landed on asphalt and the front nose gear gets bouncy. But overall, a very sturdy excellent plane!


  11. Good inexpensive Ducted fan Jet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2015

    For $98 bucks in a stock configuration, it's a piece of junk. If you pop for the landing gear, the upsized motor and stick with the recommended 1600 mah battery, you'll have a fast and nerve testing fun machine. Spend the extra $ and go fly it.


  12. Beautiful flyer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2015

    It is just a joy to fly. Plenty of power and very maneuverable. Be careful when setting up your trims. It is very responsive to small changes, especially the elevator. Once you get it set where you want it, it is nothing but fun.


  13. Great plane! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Oct 2015

    This is my first edf and I love it! Easy to build well made and a very easy plane to fly, it's not a burner but flys well at full throttle as well as half. Just a fun plane!
    Only recommendation is use another glue other than the epoxy supplied and do some reinforcing around air intakes since any hard landings or crashes result in a break.
    Still looks pretty and flys great without much trim too!

    Addressing the cg issue......not an issue at all. Whether hand launch or gear, she likes a little down elevator builds up some speed then soars right up.

    Going to buy another for a 4s!! Looking forward to it!

  15. Nice plane, easy assembly, well packaged 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2015

    Seems to be a really nice aircraft. Assembly was very easy although the nylon connectors to the control horns were difficult to turn as a few needed adjustment. Really need to use a lot of epoxy on the wings to make sure the connection is good and tight, I don't mean so it is leaking out at the seams but make sure everything is given an even layer so the wings are tight. Only complaint is I would like someone in the cockpit flying this plane!!! Every plane should have a pilot!!!! Colors are great, only a few minor dings on some of the foam parts. Really like this airplane
