Freewing F-22 Raptor Ultra Performance 8S 90mm EDF Jet - PNP
F-22 Raptor with 12-Blade Ultra Performance 8S 90mm EDF Jet from Freewing - PNP - FJ31321P
Version Note: This is the 8S version which comes with a 90mm 12-Blade EDF 8S Power System with a 4075-1390kV inrunner brushless motor and 150A ESC.
The F-22 Raptor is the world’s first Fifth Generation fighter that delivers cutting edge advances in low observable “stealth” capabilities, enhanced computer-assisted agility, and precision combat capability. The F-22 represents the future of modern air combat, and its technology continues to set the standard against which all other Fifth Generation fighters are judged.
The Freewing F-22 is a flying RC replica of this innovative fighter jet. Boasting both the lowest stall speed and one of the highest top speeds among all of Freewing’s jets, be prepared to fly a wide flight envelope with this visually stunning model aircraft! Freewing’s F-22 is capable of maneuvers most other EDFs can only dream of –our design team considers it a Performer and a Trainer in one. The Freewing F-22 measures 1500mm in length with a wingspan of 1060mm. Assembled from an array of materials including EPO foam, aluminum, carbon fiber, steel, nylon, plastic, and wood, the Freewing F-22 delivers extreme maneuverability and reliable durability on grass runways. The model aircraft features a mixture of sharp panel lines, graduated paintwork, and realistic decals. More than 15 colors of paint and decals combine to represent the subtle but complex surface shades and panels seen on the full-size F-22. The model’s main colors appear to slightly “shift” depending on the light conditions, with metallic, matte, and semi-gloss surfaces working to achieve the subtle effect. This isn’t your average plain gray jet!
Main Assembly is completed primarily with screws to attach the flying surfaces. The full flying horizontal stabilizers’ metal shafts rotate within steel bearings for smooth operation, and their servos along with the aileron and flap servos are housed within plastic trays for easy removal and servicing. As with the recent popular Freewing 80mm L-39, this Freewing 90mm F-22’s cockpit is also lined with thin plastic to resist heat damage to the darker cockpit surfaces. The main wings disconnect conveniently with a flexible ribbon wire cable, which smartly reduces the load exerted on the actual electronic connections. A magnetic nose cone encased in molded plastic with raised surface details can be removed easily to reduce the model’s length during transport to your flying field. Finally, the onboard MFCB supports expansion of up to eight additional LEDs aside from the sequenced landing light.
The Freewing F-22 is simultaneously capable of extreme expert-level maneuvers and sedate trainer-like flying. A widened gear stance and larger-than-scale grass-appropriate wheels greatly improve ground handling on short grass runways. The servo operated nose gear door is also aided by recessed magnets to help hold the doors shut during flight. Even without flaps, the model can takeoff in less than 100 feet! In the flight pattern, the Freewing F-22 truly shines. It is highly maneuverable and very difficult to stall, and can be flown at high angles of attack including high-alpha, and wild maneuvers including Cobra, inverted Immelmans, etc. Overall, our design team developed the Freewing F-22 to be able to fly a similar pattern to that flown by the real F-22 in its popular air show demonstration routine. Despite its extreme capabilities in the hands of expert RC pilots, the Freewing F-22 can also be cruised comfortably at 40%-50% throttle for stable flying as a 90mm Jet Trainer for RC pilots moving up from the 70mm-80mm Jet sizes. In the landing pattern, flaps are not required to slow the model to a long and level descent. If flaps are used, please see the manual for appropriate mixing.
The Freewing F-22 is available in two PNP versions. The Standard version features a 90mm EDF with an all-new 9 blade single piece impeller, factory balanced for precise operation, paired with a 3748-1750kV outrunner brushless motor and 130A ESC. The Deluxe 8S version features a 90mm 12 blade impeller, also molded as a single unit and factory balanced, mounted to a powerful 4075-1390kV inrunner brushless motor and 150A ESC. The F-22’s maximum level airspeed has been measured at 170KPH / 106MPH and 190KPH / 119MPH between the Standard and Deluxe versions, respectively.
Expanding the customization possibilities with your model, Motion RC also provides free downloads of 3D Printable files for a complete 3DPUP Cockpit Set, Ejection Seat, Static Display AIM-9, and Static Display Intake/Exhaust Covers. These 3DPUP files in .STL format are optimized for printing on common FDM-type printers and require very minimal assembly. For an additional challenge, a Canopy Frame Set is also available for modelers who want to experiment with a fabricating their own servo-driven opening canopy function.
Overall, the Freewing 90mm F-22 is a very approachable flyer and suitable for pilots moving up to their first 90mm jet from a 70mm or 80mm jet. For pilots already familiar with the handling of a 90mm jet, this F-22 offers the potential to master an expanded set of realistic maneuvers.

The best EDF on the market by far.
I rarely take the time to write reviews. I feel compelled to write one for this plane. It is simply incredible. I have the ultra performance version. Assembly is extremely simple. Once you have it put together, you can see how stunning this EDF is. It looks exactly like the Raptor. Incredible. It flys just as good as it looks. I fly in a grass field that is not cut very often. The grass is somewhat long. I have flown other EDF’s and most of them except the A-10 have had trouble taking off in this grass. Well let me tell you this F-22 handles it no problem. With the first notch of flaps it gently glides off the ground after a surprisingly short takeoff run. This is a powerful jet and has no issues getting off the ground. Flying it is absolutely incredible. It sounds like a real jet. Slow flight is an absolute pleasure. You can really get this thing slow and enjoy some relaxing, slow flying. Push up the throttle to max, and this thing absolutely rips. I mean it really is fast. At any speed, it handles exceptionally well. Very scale. Flying it into land is an absolute breeze. It just glides in. Keep just a little power in until the very end and you are good to go. I have flown popular large EDF’s such as the A-10 and F-16 that Freewing makes. I can say with total confidence that this is bar none the best looking and best flying EDF on the market bar none. Buy it. No seriously - stop reading these review and just buy it. Side note - Motion RC is great. Easy to use websites. Always putting out new products. Super fast shipping. Thanks Motion.
Just finishing up my build. Everything is great. Only complaint / warining to others would be the set screws that hold on the horizontal stabilizer rods. The plastic they mount thru is complete junk and break up with the slightest torque of the screw. These should have been metal female threads like the wing joiners. Freewing missed the mark here. I had to fasion my own new plastic sleves after my stock ones were toast. Not sure if its even going to hold. Might contact motion in this. Also- my left wings leading edge is not flush with the fuse..
8S F-22 Raptor
Beautiful model, well designed, easy to assemble!
Good plane with a lot of room to play with improvements
Out of the box it's a pretty darn good plane. Can be assembled in an hour and flies really well, light wing loading and good power even in 6S. I think one item should have been better designed, the knuckle at the main wheels that allows it to bend when retracted also causes the plane to tip easily when turning at speed on the ground. I also think that wing tip lights should have been included and there is a quality issue in that quite a bit of the paint on mine (and others I've seen, we currently have five at my field) is poor and in some areas peeling off out of the box. If I didn't recently get the L-39 ir wouldn't have been noticed as much but the L-39 has a stellar paint job. That said I think the best thing about the Raptor is what you can do with it. I added thrust vectoring to mine and it is an awesome addition and really adds to the flying characteristics. I also put all surfaces on their own channels (total of 11) so I can have crow (ailerons up, flaps down), full span ailerons, full span flaps, tailerons, and rudder air brakes (both rudders go inboard with proper elevator compensation). All of these are in separate mods and fully proportional via the side levers. Like this the aerobatic capabilities are just awesome. I also added top and bottom wing tip lights, which it should have come with.
Nothing is impossible...
After just 2 full flights on the F22 I felt confident enough to do a low altitude, flaps and gear down, missed approach, 360 tight turn and land maneuver. I would not try that maneuver with any other airplane. The people watching thought I was nuts. This is hands down the best performing EDF I’ve ever flown. Great job! PS it was the 8s version.
8s F-22 is great, worth every $$$!
It flies every solid, my only issue is the wheels, they wear out to easy and the steering is a issue for me but other than that she is a super sweet flyer! the setup is good but needs high rates on a heavy 8s setup. The CG is a little nose heavy due to 8s packs. it tips over easy so don't steer it to hard! here is my 3rd flight after i got all my maiden bugs worked out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKjWEtXZA-s
Excellent F-22 Raptor
Excellent all-around, out of the box performance in the 8S setup!! Nothing else needed.
Nice edf jet. I have about 10 flights so far. Flies well at slow speeds as well at full throttle.Gear sticks to the pavement making for good landings but landing gear is narrow and you have to be moving slowly to not tip it to one side more so than other Freewing jets I have. My tire treads are also not even, bigger on one side than the other, causing it to to bounce when taxing.Not sure if I just got defective ones or if all are like that. I recommend!
Motion and Freewing do it again! Awesome Aircraft model!
I thought that the Freewing A-10 was the the best engineered EDF on the market. The F-22 takes it to the next level. The 8S setup is definitely the way to go for this model. Super performance vs the 6S at altitude in Denver. It is also a much better airframe for the 8S than the T-45. It would have been nice if all of the same lights were on the F-22 as on the A-10 and T-45. Not a complaint, just a desire. My complements to Motion for all of their great efforts on these aircraft.
