Freewing F-14 Tomcat Twin 12-Blade 80mm EDF Jet in "Bullet 101" Scheme - PNP - FJ30812P

Northrop Grumman A-10

We here at Motion RC are proud to announce our Super Scale F-14D Tomcat! Never before has an electric F-14 been produced in this size and with this high a degree of scale fidelity and quality. Easily one of the most beloved jets in history, we’re especially excited to offer this thrilling F-14D Tomcat. Our team worked tirelessly to develop an RC model which brings the excitement and scale performance of this hallmark aircraft to your local flying field and to appropriately honor the F-14 Tomcat’s rightful place in aviation history. We chose to depict “Bullet 101”, the specially marked F-14D from the VF-2 squadron “Bounty Hunters”, which was painted in the mid-1990s to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the F-14’s service in the United States Navy. 

The signature feature of the real F-14 is its sweeping wing, and we've worked to design this model around this function as well. Our lightweight, aluminum “Wing Box” design supports a rigid wing in both forward and swept configurations. The wings pivot on flat bearings to reduce resistance and wear. Electric servoless actuators extend and sweep the wings using steel control rods and brass ball links. The result of this design is a durable, maintenance-free wing sweep feature which provides pilots with a worthy F-14 flying experience.

Scale fidelity, surface details, and builder-friendliness were also specific areas of focus. The PNP model arrives with the main fuselage completely assembled. All the electronics –servos, EDFs, ESCs, UBEC, retracts, and lights—are completely installed at the factory. The builder simply needs to screw on the wings and epoxy on the forward nose section and the assorted surface details like the wing fences, antennas, pitot tube, etc. To further simplify the wiring and setup, this F14 incorporates an onboard mixing circuit board which controls all the servos, taileron/aileron mixing, wing sweeping, and the lighting package.

While the complexity of this F-14D make it the largest, most impressive, and heaviest EDF jet available at Motion RC to date, the aircraft uses two 80mm 12 blade EDFs and two 6s 4000mAh batteries which can propel it through the sky at 100mph. The Freewing F-14 is also extremely capable and stable at slow flight. The model can cruise at 60% throttle, can turn at 40% throttle even with the wings swept rearward, and can land at less than 40mph with full flaps. The F-14D’s two powerplants utilize the same 1750kv outrunner and 80A ESC which have proven themselves in Freewing's 80mm class of jets. An 8 amp UBEC supplies the ten servos with dependable power to all systems.

  • September 19, 2015 - The weapons set shown in the photos is available separately and is not included with the PNP or KIT+ aircraft. The weapons sets do add weight and lots of drag, which decreases the model's top speed by ~12-15 mph.

I don't know that it gets any cooler than this!!

There's just nothing like this F-14. Anytime I fly it anywhere, everyone stops and watches the whole flight. I grew up watching Top Gun, so of course I had to repaint mine to recreate Maverick and Goose's Tomcat (with help from Callie Graphics). This plane is the dream. You MUST have respect for the complexity, weight, and speed of this jet if you want to be able to enjoy it. This is NOT one for beginners. My hands still shake a bit after each successful landing of this plane. She lifts gracefully from the ground in about 200' of runway with half flaps; with no-flap takeoffs, expect to need 300' or more. I put the time in to program full-span flaps in pursuit of the slowest possible ground speed for landing. I highly recommend viewing RCGeek's YouTube video about setup if you plan to do the same. With calm winds it takes every bit of 250' of ground roll after touchdown to get her stopped, but I may be guilty of coming in a little hot to avoid stalls on short final (not to say the jet is prone to them, but with full-span flaps, there's not much of a warning wag before a wing would drop). With the wings out, this plane is very docile and predictable. It's a little slippery on the roll access with wings back. I've got an Eagle gyro on the way to help with that. Freewing did a fantastic job of achieving wing sweep without it negatively affecting the CG! That being said, CG is EVERYTHING with this plane. High speed low passes are awe-inspiring with the wings back! I fly pairs of 6S 4500 45C and 6S 5000 50C packs in mine, getting 3:10 and 3:30 flight times with 33% battery left consistently - you'll be VERY glad to have enough battery for a go-around or three!! On a side note: I recommend putting Nerf football whistles just behind the fan shrouds to produce a surprisingly realistic turbine sound. It'll really add some cool factor! In summary, if you absolutely love the F-14 and approach this plane with respect for its flight characteristics and put great care into the workload involved in dialing it in, you'll be greatly rewarded with flying the jet of your dreams! THANK YOU Freewing and MotionRC for making this dream a reality for so many of us!!! You guys are the best!!

Tomcats rule!

I've Always been a fan of the Tomcat, as they were built 12 miles from where I live. I have good friends who have designed, built, flight tested and flew into battle this last of the great Cats! Thank you motion for making it possible to fly such a great replica! It was a pleasure to build and put on an honorary repaint for a friend.

Excellent for the F-14 aficionado!

I have flown this beauty 7X on the stock setup. First off you would buy this because it's an F-14 and it's a big beautiful bird! It flies incredibly well for being so heavy and large. I did use RC Geeks recommendations on using bigger batteries (5000mah- 5200) and remove foam to move batteries all the way back.Wings extended: roll rate is great, no coupling, speed is great, use energy management, its fast and will build up speed not necessarily as a result of excess thrust (welcome to EDF's). Lands very well I have 2" of travel on landing flaps and roll out is not an issue. Refer to "RC Geek" settings and info on swept wing operation. Stock: the roll is rather twitchy but I can live with it. Not mentioned by RC Geek is the rearward movement of CG (center of lift moves rearward) with wings folded. Not such a big deal, I just have to push down a bit because plane wants to climb a bit with wings folded. Overall, extremely happy with this F-14! I think the design and thought put into the plane are inspired and cost effective to consumer. Yes, it would be better if the stock control board made spoilers into the ailerons during swept mode but I can live with it. Not a gyro guy but I would recommend using an gyro for roll while in swept mode. Either way well done Freewing on this bird!
