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. 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

  2. 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.

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

    Posted by on 17th Jul 2015

    Got this for father's day and love it, this is my 2nd jet the other is the f 22 raptor ,anyway they work good with the safe receivers as I'm a newbie. Purchased a 4s 2200 and a 65 amp esc , I want to see these birds scream!!! Thanks motion rc Randy

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Easy flyer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2015

    Don't know what all the fuss is about for launching this bird. Just use the Admiral 3-cell 2200 and put it all the forward. Launches with an easy toss. Flies straight, rolls great and loops nicely. It will seem nose heavy, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT JUST LAUNCH IT AND SEE IT GO. Glides in super slow for great landings too.

    Awesome little jet.

  8. F9F Panther/ Optional Landing Gear A Great Remedy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th May 2015

    An important update(up to 5 stars)...I now have 2 F9F Panthers and decided to install the optional landing gear on 1 of them to experience the difference. This really makes flying this plane much easier for those of you having launching problems. I'm using a Hobby People 3S 2200mAh 30C(175grams), only because I had them...otherwise my other batteries are all Admirals w/no issues at all. Placing that battery all the way forward, almost touching the nose-wheel servo arm is perfect placement for the CG. She takes off really smooth, and by using a Flapperon/Elevator mix to land, this helps a lot with slowing her down nicely for landing. You will have to remove the Y harness on the ailerons and use separate channels for each aileron(Aileron and Aux1 channel), to utilize the Flapperon feature on Spektrum radios.

  9. A Winner F9F Panther 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2015

    I won this airplane in the monthly Social Media Sweepstakes! What a wonderful surprise! I had a long wait for good weather, but when I flew it the 3d time, it was one of the most exciting flights I have had. The first 2 times it went straight up and crashed, but repairable with a split fuselage. Then I added a rudder (Easy to do) and had someone hand launch it gently with a slight nose up and 3/4 power. Perfect flight and awesome sound. This is a fun airplane. Ted Williams would have been proud (For you younger guys, he was a very famous, Hall of Fame, homerun hitter w/the Red Sox who took some time to fly in the Korean War in the F9F. A real Patriot he was). I am 80, so this was my chance to enjoy some history. I think I'll buy another Panther as this was such a thrill to fly. Thank you to all the vets in Motion RC. You are doing a great job and thanks for the wonderful surprise!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.
