Freewing F-14 Tomcat Twin 12-Blade 80mm EDF Jet in "Bullet 101" Scheme - ARF PLUS - FJ30811K+

Northrop Grumman A-10

Version Info: This is the ARF+ version for pilots who wish to install their own power system. All primary electronics including servos and landing gear come pre-installed, just add your own power system (EDF, motor, and ESC) to begin flying.

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 ARF PLUS model arrives with the main fuselage assembled. All the electronics –servos, retracts, and lights—are completely installed at the factory.  You will simply need to add your own power system and ESC. 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 (not included) 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.

Product Updates:

  • 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.

Super Jet mit bestem Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

ich habe den Jet mit einer Wren44 turbinisiert, gleiches Gewicht wie mit Akku-Antrieb. Geht voll ab.Besonders schön finde ich die kugelgelagerten Räder und die doppelte Federung der Fwk.-Beine. Hab noch einen Kreisel nachgerüstet, da bei eingefahrenem Flügel das Teil doch recht wackelig sein kann. Falls die Pendelruder zappeln, einfach etwas dämpfen, inde man etwas Malerkrepp um die Achse wickelt, damit die Ruder fester sitzen und nicht das Servo zappeln lassen. Service von motionRC wieder super. neuen Stammkunden gewonnen!

Change your Elevator Servos

My track will proceed me. I have bought many F-14’s…. Like it’s a problem, I know. But I will say that the cure to it all has been replacing the elevator servos with Hitechs. I have lost 3, F-14 because the elevator servos quit….. Every time. First they are cheap and I completely understand you have to in order to keep cost low. But it’s awful…. Secondly, you run the elevator wires too close to the motor. They are pinched to the wall by a motor running at uber sensitive vibration. You need to pull the wires away from the motor and tape them to the wall behind the motors, not “on them”. So I replaced and ran them straight to the receiver, bypassed the board. Then programmed elevons. It’s the only way to have long-lasting success with the bird. You’re welcome.

Swingin' Along

This is my second F-14. Flew the first one until something broke. Took a while for that to happen. The fit of the access panel over the wing is much better than the last one. The only negative is the foam is not quite as well done as the big Spitfire: numerous pinholes. Not objectionable but a tad disappointing. If there was a 1/2 star available this would be a 4 1/2 star rating. The steering servo was bad but Motion, as they always do, replaced it about as quickly as it is possible to do! I like the jet. I like the way it flies, especially with the RC Geek setup. I like the price too. It's rare for me to miss an airplane after it's gone but this is one of them.
