Can’t fault it. Brilliant model.

Flies wonderfully. Had about 30 flights in the first few weeks and hope to rack up a lot of jet time on it (AvanitiX is next ;-) I did add a little weight in the cone, (38g), using 4s 2800mah Usual reliable good service from motionrc!

Great first jet

This is my intro. to EDF Jets, but have been flying 20yrs. Ok, out of the box very nice smooth foam no dings, dents very nice, she went together in a flash, wing bolts (screws) are into wood, once you run them in back them out of the wood and put a drop of CA on the wood and holes let it dry and reassemble, good solid fit now. Tail feathers a easy and fast screw together. I used a Spektrum 6ch. antenna less receiver and yes it can all jam in the hole behind the battery compartment. The only problem I had is one of the elevator movements were way way off from the other, what I found out was one of the control rods going to the elevator was bent and about 1/4" shorter. I undid the bent one, they go through a plastic tube glued to the fin so be careful, I took my time bending both ends till it lined up with the other side,(this was the short side also) put the horn back on it at the top, undid the other side and ran the horn down to match, hooked everything back up and fine tuned both elevators to match.. Works great. I maiden her today very slight breeze, The first flight was with Admiral 4s 3000mah, flaps at 25% on 2.5sec delay, NO WEIGHTS WHAT SO EVER WAS ADDED OR NEEDED. for CG. Take off great , flaps up, gear up, 3 mistakes high 1/2 throttle did need right aileron trim and some up.. OMG WHAT A DOLL, I did use a lot of runway landing, lands different than my warbirds, Giles 202, etc. I flew her a total of 10 times once on the 4s 3000mah, the 9 others 4s 2650mah, flight times 1/2 throttle on 2650mah 3.45 min with 20% left, 3000mah about a min. longer 4.50min flight and 22% left. The only other thin I did to the plane was paint the noise and thrust cone black.... Simply put WHAT A GREAT FIRST TIME JET EXPERIANCE.... I LOVE IT.....

Best Jet For The Buck

I set this Jet up as my goto toss & boss EDF. No flaps or landing gear. In fact I removed all the gear and both flap servos for an extremely light 70mm EDF. I fly with the HRB 3600mah 4s lipos. Run time is about 5 minutes, fully spirited on the stock 12-blade 2849-2850kv motor. I'm also running the Freewing standard metal gear servos on the ailerons, rudder, and elevator.

Great airplane

Great flying airplane. Easy to land with or without flaps. Plenty of speed but a 2.65K battery doesn't give much flight time. I am barely getting 3 minutes without reserve for a possible go around. Some thing in the range of 3.5K would be a better fit but be careful of size. Not much space for the extra size. Had to add a number of servo extensions to complete the assembly. Would have given it 5 stars but the trim applique's do not stick on well, Others have said to clear coat the plane but I didn't see those recommendations.

On rails...

This jet will fly great with a standard receiver. One click maiden. To get the recommended elevator throws, adjust the links. With a 2500, you’ll need to add about 2 ounces of weight to the nose. I modified the nose to accommodate it before placing the cone. Flight times are short at 3:30 but wouldn’t add a larger battery due to the weight. Still playing with the flaps but they are very effective. This is a great jet at a great price!

Nice Sport Jet

This is an excellent first EDF when transitioning from propeller a/c. It has a wide flight envelope and can be flown off of low cut grass fields. As mentioned by other reviewers the decals tend to come off very easy. The fix is a clear coat of the whole plane, I chose a high gloss clear coat, much like commercial A/C. Assembly is easy and quick, but a word of caution regarding wing attachment. The mounting screws tend to strip easily. In my case the 2 forward wing attachment screws stripped and I could not tighten the wing or loosen it. I elected to epoxy it in place and address the issue further if I ever need to access the EDF or ESC. Overall, I would have given if 4 stars for the wing attachment issue if not for the fact that this a/c is so reasonably priced. Nice flying a/c and the perfect way to get into EDF's

Battery Selection

I have had my Rebel now for about 2 months. I have had previous EDF jets prior to this one, but the Rebel is the best I have ever flown. I used the recommended Admiral 3000 mAH, 35C battery for the first month of flying. After 4.5 minutes of full throttle flying the battery would show 10-12% remaining and it was almost too hot to hold in your hand. I searched the Motion RC website for a better battery and settled on the Admiral PRO 3600 mAH at 50C. Its dimensions and weight were just slightly more that the Admiral 3000. After my first flight I bought a second one! This is the battery that should be recommended by Motion RC for this plane! The battery was just cool to the touch after 5 minutes of flying and I didn't have to make any trim changes to compensate for the slightly heavier battery. The residual power has been between 20-25%...a safer margin compared to the 3000, 35C. Admiral Pro 3600 4S 14.8V 50C LiPo Battery with T Connector or XT-60, Cost $57.49......the ONLY way to fly!

Freewing Rebel V2

For the price it's a very good airplane. Like most foamies don't expect a precision machine. Once you get it flying and trimmed out it's a good beginners EDF jet and fairly fast. It's also more forgiving than most foamy EDF jets and can fly at low speed.
