Freewing F9F Panther 64mm EDF Jet - PNP


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.

  1. F9F Panther Jet 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2015

    I like the packaging on the F9F, it was well packed. The assembly was fairly straight forward except when installing the tail section to make sure the elevator cables were out of the way of any epoxy app. I made sure the paint was removed on areas where the epoxy would go to attach the part. I used 220 sand paper to remove the paint. I am getting ready to fly it soon, in the mean time it looks great. Their are some minor Quality issues. Thats why 4 star rating.

  2. First EDF 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2015

    This was my first EDF jet and i am very impressed!! building it was a breeze and setup equally as simple. Once out on the field and throttled up she flew amazing on the first hand launch. Made some minor trim adjustments and spent the rest of the morning zipping across our flying field. Motion RC was awesome on the delivery as it showed up a day earlier than expected and in perfect condition.

  3. Bought Another F9F Panther But Same Issues 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2015

    I'm providing another Panther review because I bought another one. I must say that this jet is really a great way to fly especially if you're new to jets. I just had to have 2. The problem I have come across again with Freewing is that the elevator servo with spacers, the screws were both stripped again and would definitely cause a crash. I used beefier screws to solve the problem. Also the motor again only has 2 of 4 screws securing the motor to the mount. I have learned to check these things since buying a Freewing A10 and both EDF's were the same as well as my first Panther. I wish MRC would do something about this poor quality of Freewing. I feel that if you buy a plane with EDF's preassembled than they should be secured properly.

  4. Great Little Jet 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2015

    This aircraft is absolutely beautiful. This color scheme really pops. The high-vis colors are great for grey overcast days. I use 2600 packs and get 5 minute flights. Place the ESC and the receiver below the wooden compartment floor and you will have enough room for a larger battery. Success or failure all comes down to the launch of this little airplane. After having one bad launch and crack-up I decided to use a bungee. They cost under$10. Locate the hook just forward of the CG. Mine is about even with the elevator servo. There the belly is meaty enough to embed a 1" X1" piece of 1/8"ply with a tow hook. Now launches are guaranteed to be successful regardless of conditions.

  5. Follw the recommended CG 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2015

    OK, I've been holding off on a review of this jet, but after lots of input from RC discussion boards and my steep learning curve I'm ready to fire!
    This is one squirrely jet. I managed to avoid the tail-heavy situation so many have complained about, so no rocket launches here. The Panther is not tolerant of too much nose heavy either. Adding the landing gear is ok as long as you remember rule #1
    #1 - Battery whatever size - Maintain correct CG at 38mm
    #2 - Get your airspeed way up before attempting to bank after takeoff...or else
    #3 - go low rate and program expos to limit elevator throw until you get a feel for this jet.
    The Panther is not a speed demon, but it does have a sweet "Whoosh" jet sound. It's anemic in vertical loops, but the roll rate is fantastic. It's also a fast lander with the gear
    4 stars for some quality control issues

  6. Sounds Real with only a 5-blade fan! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Mar 2015

    My brother gave me this for Christmas and it's the best EDF in my fleet. Once you get the hang of hand launching it, a Frisbee style throw using my left hand works for me, you'll see how great this thing flies. I've had several guys at the field say they want one of these because they sound so good and these guys usually fly the 6 to 12 cell EDF's! I had some trouble seeing it at first (Getting old) so I added a white stripe down the belly and that helped a lot. I did stuff it in at full power once and it was easily repairable. The foam in the nose is deformed, but that just adds character. Overall I think everyone should have this jet in their EDF fleet because it's just FUN.
    BTW I use a 3S2200 and I've had no problems with balance, just tuck it into the nose so the rear is about even with the rear of the stars & Bars decal on the right side of the fuse. This makes it ~ 1/4" from the 2nd panel line on the right side.

  7. A favorite plane 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Mar 2015

    This is one of the best designed, well thought out models I've ever owned. Easy access to everything. One of the nicest looking with simple assembly. Anxiously waiting for "global warming" to kick in so I can fly it.

  8. I GIVE UP!! 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2015

    I have purhased two of these planes and have not gotten either one of them to fly correctly. I put the suggested 1600 battery and it just stands on its tail. I tried an 1800 and it's to nose heavy. I even tried the recommended Gyro (Eagle Pro ), and all it would do is "Spin" right after lauch. I even tried multiple gain settings and still no l luck. I found it almost impossible to find the CG...I'm sure from the other reviews there is a certain way to set this plane up.. I just don't know what it is. I wish I had all that $$$ back.

  9. Update 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2015

    So now that I have more time on flying the 1600mah batteries I tried the 2200mah batteries again and was successful getting a hand launch. The key for me was no elevator until it picks up a little speed - just keep it level. Saves me from having to buy more batteries and can focus on fixing my FW-190 I keep busting up :)

  10. hop up 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Feb 2015

    I fly off of grass so put a set of landing gear on the plane a 40 amp stinger ESC cut out the center stringer and dremeled out half the two other inside stringer's to set a 3s2200 pro admiral batt side ways in the plane. I don't know how it got off the ground flew so slow it scared me, landed it plugged in a 1600 4s admiral take off to vert wow no CG problems fun fun fun.

  11. Freewing F9F Panther Great Flier 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2015

    First I want to give a special thanks to Scott Anderson who's reviews proved to be the best in making my jet fly the best. His reviews below, that spelled out exactly what to do, worked perfectly. I had a Hobby People 2200mAh 3S 30C and it fits real tight and right. Trimming out the 2 cheater ribs in the lower intake to better grip the Panther is the best. I also added a 5/8" strip of adhesive black sandy stair-step material placed the length of the underbelly... works great on our all carpet runway which 250'x 36'...stops really great(lvsoaringclub.org). Another material for asphalt would be black rubber car body side molding strips. I use that on my gliders. Through some pressure placed on the top of the fin where it meets the top of the fuse, while gluing, I was able to get it to match up and fit flush. Thanks again Scott for the most helpful review ever and MRC for providing a really fun jet.

  12. Great flyer - needs more power 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2015

    Maidened ours today. First flight tail heavy with 1550 Mah 3 cell. Switch to 2200 and flew great but will stall in turns without full throttle. Going to do some cutting in the batt compartment to fit a 4 cell which turn this baby into a very cool rocket!
    Definitely not a beginner and jet but it's totally awesome in the air. Love it!

  13. So much fun! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2014

    This plane is my new favorite for just getting out to the field and getting up in the air quickly. My friend and I tried with 2200mah Admiral batteries at first and just could not get it to hand launch successfully. Just not enough power to get going. Switched to 1600mah batteries and babbam! So easy. I get about 5 minutes of mixed throttle usage flying on each battery.

    This is my first EDF but definitely won't be my last. Its not a super fast airplane but its pretty much just right for someone transitioning from slower prop planes to a first EDF.

  14. Freewing F9F Panther 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2014

    The only reason i gave it 4 stars is no rudder (which normally i wouldn't complain but on full bank turns she needs one). Other than that it is a 5 star fun little jet with the exception of the C.G. The actual CG is 36mm back from leading edge of the wing. I flew her with an admiral 3300mah 3 cell but she was quite heavy but still flew. I recently changed her to the admiral pro series 2200mah 40c 3 cell. I loke the way she flies much better now bit still needs a rudder. I am planning on changing to a 4s set up and a 50 amp esc (the motor i will be using is the FMS standard edf motor: 2627 5100kv brushless outrunner for the 4s setup. All in all a great model but for those looking to get into edf jets i would say this one could be your second not first but still easy to fly. Absolutely love MotionRC and i will not buy from anyone else. Thanks motion! Please check out my youtube channel and subscribe: Dartanian Carlson
