Product Questions & AnswersNOTE: Questions submitted on this page are answered by customers who have previously purchased this item. If you have a support related question that requires immediate assistance, please visit our Help Center.
- The hinges of the wing flaps are poorly glued. - The flaps are absolutely unrealistic: split instead of full. Dissolve by loosening the upper part and gluing it on the underside. - Cooling of ESC: little or none! The airflow from the cable duct is opposite to this through the "louvres" above the ESC. New air duct made, starting in front of the turbine and further cut out to the cable duct. This gives an airflow over the ESC to the turbine input. - The pilot? Poor the sucker. Far from realistic! Replaced by a 1/7 WWII German Luftwaffe RC Pilot from ModelPilots.com. - Cockpit is glued so difficult to replace the pilot. Carefully disconnect and reattach with pins at the front and a magnet at the back and two small magnets on the flanks. - A ground connector from the wings, very confusing. - Carbon tubes of wing stiffening are too short. Should be respectively 280 and 380mm instead of 230 and 320mm. Otherwise there is a chance that the tubes are not centered. - Wheels are too small compared to the original and can cause difficulties when starting a grass track. Difficult to change! - Painting: only one correct colour has been used, namely for the underside of the machine (Helblau H.G.5) . The other camouflage colors do not conform to RLM! Corrections in case of damage are therefore difficult to make. - Most of these shortcomings can be solved and I've done them but they require a lot of inventiveness. - Power: not tested yet. - Flight time: I foresee 6S 7000mAh.
I haven’t flown the 262 yet but taking the parts out of the box revealed a very nice quality product. It’s impressive
I’ve owned many of these over the years.. and back when it was the first version. I’m ordering this new version and can’t wait. With a gyro installed it’s the easiest EDF I’ve flown. Can break 100mph and has a wide range of battery sizes and weights it’s happy with. My only suggestion for a change would be to make the wheels 1/2” larger in diameter and the landing gear itself 1/4” shorter. It would make it better on rough terrain and make the gear less likely to break off. The landing gear seems to be the weakness. Plane has tons of internal room and is easy to add electronics to. It’s very easy to repair and can take a beating. I had a mid-air collision and was still able to land my plane fine with 1/3rd of one wing gone and no control of that aileron.... I’m sure the gyro helped me a lot too. Gyros are AMAZING. I’ve flown almost every freewing EDF and this is my favorite.
Quality is excellent, it's just trying to interpret Chinese? Lossy instruction!
This is the second Freewing ME262 i've purchased from Motion RC. First one arrived in excellent shape and performed well until I bounced/tip stalled it on a landing and damaged the foam in the nose. But I was disappointed in the condition of this one -- not Motion RC's fault, but somebody was asleep in quality-control at Freewing. One wing had "crush" damage across a strip of the entire upper surface that I won't use it (saved my wings/nacelles from the first plane and used them). The fuselage had a couple of small pokes penetrating the foam, a paper-thin canopy that flexes badly if you touch it (first one was much stiffer), a few more dents in the front left side of the canopy, etc. Except for the wing, I was able to repair or cover up most of the other damage, and just used the old wing set because it was in perfect shape, but if this would have been my first 262, I would have had to send it back. Fortunately, I was able to use salvage parts from the first one, because this is a wonderful-flying EDF, looks beautiful in the air, and if I LAY OFF the elevator at touchdown, it is nice to land. Still consider Motion RC the absolute best company to work with, and I know they would have worked with me on this second plane -- I just didn't want to go through all the hassle of sending that monster box back when I had the spare parts and "repair ability" to make it work.
Good quality flys well
Lovley, I Like it very much! Perfect!
I received it very soon it was well packed and no damage on it. The item seems good. Good quality of materials and compnents, realistic and good looking, i haven't tested it i need to mount an fpv camera on it (i fly always in firts person), mybe ill post a video when ill be ready. So i can't say" How well does the product perform "
