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. I would buy this Panther again...Love it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2015

    I'm new to the hobby, flying for 2 months now. My learning curve because of my passion to learning has improve that I wanted to try my first EDF. To my surprise that with the 1800mah battery and the design of this beautiful plane that it was a dream to fly. The build is average, I wish that carbon brace were put all ready but it's all on the builder. I added some weights in the nose and flew great. I have the throws low for me to learn and keep it in the air, but latter will change as I get better. Would I recommend this to any one. Totally I would... Lots of fun and beautiful in the sky.

  2. Freewing Panther 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Sep 2015

    Had first flight today. Needed very little trim. was happy with speed of plane, only being 64mm fan. looked cool, flew nice, landed easy and smooth. I have landing gear on mine which is real nice.

  3. My 1st EDF and I like it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2015

    I'm not new to RC flight and have been flying giant scale gasoline Warbirds for quite awhile now, but when I saw this PnP F9F (I'm a scale guy ya know) offered at $104 shipped I just had to pull the trigger and see what it's all about. I bought two at that price. I have flown what I'll call #1 out of the box on my older 2200MAH 3s batts allowing me to place the battery more aft in the tray (I did cut and drop the batt tray board to the floor of the fuse), and have enjoyed the plane on both trips to the club field. I especially (remember reading I'm a giant scale flyer,LOL) like the ease of transporting this little (at 24" wingspan I believe) plane as it would probably fit in the passengers footwell of my Altima (no trailer needed,LOL) I have bought a 12 blade fan and an 80 amp ESC along with some fresh 4s batts for what I'll call #2. You can also fly the stock out of the box on 4s, but I haven't received the 4s batts yet to report my findings. This plane at $104 shipped is just a blast to fly and has both great flight characteristics flat out, and has very good slow flight, soaring, gliding capabilities. It's all about the launch that makes it or breaks it (I myself just bought a Jetapult that does this perfectly every time). Once on step it's a blast. Thanks Motion for this fun, low cost, entry into EDF.

  4. Buy one buy one with landing gear 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2015

    If you set it up right I mean the battery is forward to the point were it is just before the servo for the front wheel and make sure the elevator is horizontal perfectly straight up up and away flies so easy
    It is not a fast flyer you gain confidence real easy
    Def first jet and it will b the jet you will want to take up

  5. Great jet.... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2015

    Assembly for a novice is not quick...hence only 4 stars...that said, I am a novice, so perhaps it would be easier for someone more experienced. Worth noting is to get your glue on fast, the supplied glue gets gummy quick, and once gummy does not adhere well at all. I made is mistake and on my first flight the wing snapped right off. New, fresh glue and it's good to go.


    I don't care how your CG seems, if it's not in the nose, regardless of size, you will just fight a climb at all times. Aside from that, and a couple crashes due to that, I am in love with this jet.

  6. Hard to Hand Launch 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2015

    I have mixed feelings about this jet. After watching many videos, I ordered the F9F Panther from Motion RC. I am a low intermediate flyer and my bro is a 40-year veteran expert flyer. We assembled the jet and took it to the flying field the next day (I did not order the landing gear.). On our 1st three flights, the hand launches were HORRIBLE, but the jet managed to right itself and get flying. The jet flew very well in my opinion and I was able to control it quite easily. It even glides very well at no throttle (we found this out at low voltage cutoff.)
    Next day we went out and tried it again, but this time NONE of the 3 hand launches worked, as the jet would just STAND ON ITS TAIL, then fly off to the right, upon which twice it hit our club shed. The last strike demolished the plane. (The tendency to fly to the right on takeoff can be seen a bit in the Motion video.) CG was as directed too.
    I contacted Motion RC to assist me in purchasing a 2nd Panther but they only offered advice that "this plane is extremely difficult to hand launch". This advice should have been in their description of the plane! I would have either ordered the landing gear with it, or selected a different model. So I am disappointed in Motion in the Customer Service aspect.
    However, since the jet was so smooth flying once airborne, I have ordered a 2nd one, this time with gear, so we'll see how it goes.
    3 Stars- 4 for flyability/2 for launching and customer service.

  7. Great 1st jet to learn from 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2015

    Goes together very well . It is definitely not a threatening plane to fly it is not super fast which is a good thing when u r learning to fly jets.
    U need to have very short grass when taking off will not take off if grass is tall. 1800 battery perfect all the way up front just before wheel servo. Looks great
    I have two of these jets I would not recommend tossing plane it needs to gain speed.
    I put the speed control under the wood for room for rec and battery
    For the price u can't go wrong another keeper

  8. My son loves this jet... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2015

    My son is 15 yrs. old and he said this jet is the best thing that he has ever flown. He also said that the only thing that would make it better, would be if he could figure out how to put that smoke machine in it so he could watch it fly by with smoke coming out of the tail...
    I wonder what he will want next !!!
    Something bigger and faster I guess...
    I better start saving my money, his birthday will be here soon.
    Thanks Motion RC, we enjoy doing business with you...

  9. 1 Hour to Build? No Way! 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2015

    Was really excited to get into my first ducted fan, so I picked this plane out as a good starter. Overall, the quality is not bad, but this is my first Freewing plane, so not sure exactly what to expect.

    My first comment is around the estimated time to build this plane. The instructions say 1 hour. I've built several RTFs, ARFs and a couple of kits. I'm not an expert by any means, but this is definitely a 3-4 hour kit. There is A LOT of gluing that needs to be done, and that's the main issue. I didn't realize so much gluing would be necessary. The wings, tail surfaces, nose cone and landing gear (which I bought as an accessory) all need to be glued on with epoxy, so be prepared for holding the plane still until all of the epoxy hardens.

    Second comment is around the instructions. They have really good pictures, but they don't give you step-by-step instructions. They don't say anything about installing the control horns, for example, so unless you really think about it and study the pictures, you wouldn't realize all of the control horns need to be put on BEFORE gluing the wings and tail on. The instructions just say to start gluing on the parts. After I put the put the first horizontal stab on, I realized the control horns really needed to go on first. The screws and horns are very small, too. The kit did come with a cool screw driver with 2 bits and epoxy.

    Just did a high speed taxi run and brief lift off the runway and back down, so I'm excited to fly this bird once I get my nerve up. It looks great and the fan has what I would consider to be a lot of power. Wish me luck!

  10. F-9 Panther 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2015

    I read all the negatives, but as long you push that 3s 1600 Admiral battery all the way forward you should have no problems. I installed landing gear and created a box under the battery to house the servo and painted it gray. It a great flyer. It's a cool looking airplane taxing and taking-off on our club runwayI

  11. 4s Rocket 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jul 2015

    Being this is my third one I decided to make this one a 4cell. I mated the 5 blade fan with a turnigy 4000kv motor and a hobbywing 40a esc. I had to cut out the center of the battery tray to accommodate the 2200 4s batteries I will be using. The battery now sits down in the fuselage with the top of the battery even with the tray. As others have said, myself included, the cg can be hard to find but its almost perfect with very little trim. I hand launch with no gear. Full power at a very slight up angle and the thing just went straight as an arrow. Once up to speed vertical is almost unlimited. The sound it makes is more like a real jet. I have always enjoyed flying the Panther but now it's a whole new animal.

  12. I'm loving these Jets!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2015

  13. My first EDF 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jul 2015

    This plane looks good, is very easy to assemble, is fun to fly, and looks good in the air. I haven't flown anything in the past two years and the last plane I flew was a 36 inch SNJ. Everything I read about it gave its top speed as 65mph. I was worried that it couldn't fly slow. It can fly slow, and when I calmed down it flew straight and level too! Just give it full throttle and toss like you are test gliding.

  14. Great cheap jet fun. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jun 2015

    Since getting some more flight time after buying this a while back I still love it. I get consistent easy hand launches with a light slightly nose up push, she goes into a slightly nose high harrier but never loses speed enough to stall and this "harrier" attitude gives me time to get my hand on the radio. I find the screw recesses for the EDF cover on bottom are a good finger hold spot with pinky finger forward of that for support.

    One on the sticks I begin feeding a little down elevator to level the nose off and it picks up speed and flies level hands off after a little trimming.

    Speed is respectable for those used to flying 3s powered sport planes and is enough to be fun, roll rate is quick but with some expo I don't feel it's overly sensitive so any sport plane flyer should have no trouble.

    Belly landing is just as easy, I throttle back on the base leg approach and chop power at runway threshold and let her maintain a slight nose down descent , level off ahead of intended landing spot just above the deck and it slides in smooth.

  15. Great Plane but CG in manual is wrong 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jun 2015

    Followed the 36mm CG in the manual and the plane flew tail heavy. Flies better with 30mm CG. Other than that - I would have given this a 5 star.
