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.

Great little aircraft

My first EDF. A couple of other guys at the field fly them and I was impressed, so when the time came to find a home for my 4s batts I opted for this. Great flyer, good control responses and slows down great with the flaps for landing. My first landing was on frozen grass and ripped out one main retract, which popped the flap off. A little tape and some epoxy fixed both and everything is working as good as new again. Handles grass well with the spring gear.

Rebel V2 70mm EDF Sport Jet

Lieferzeit sehr schnell. Verpackung unbeschädigt. Zusammenbau einfach. Das vordere Einziehfahrwerk streikte jedoch nach der 3. Betätigung. Freude verflogen. Aber dann kam das völlig Unerwartete. Mail am 02.01.2019 um 12:53 an motionrc über defektes Fahrwerk. Neues Fahrwerk wurde am 03.01.2019 um 14:30 bereits geliefert. Dieser Service ist SPITZENKLASSE und so etwas habe ich in meiner ganzen Modellbauzeit (über 30 Jahr) noch nie erlebt. Danke Danke Danke. So macht Modellbau richtig Spass, auch wenn einmal etwas schief geht.
