Freewing F-14 Tomcat Twin 80mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing F-14 Tomcat Twin 12-Blade 80mm EDF Jet in "Bullet 101" Scheme - PNP - FJ30812P
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 PNP model arrives with the main fuselage completely assembled. All the electronics –servos, EDFs, ESCs, UBEC, retracts, and lights—are completely installed at the factory. 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 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. The F-14D’s two powerplants utilize two 3530-1680kV outrunners and 80A ESCs. An 8 amp UBEC supplies the ten servos with dependable power to all systems.

- 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.

Better and better with freewing
Another top shelf product! I will be honest since weather dosn’t allow me to do the main, however this bird look absolutely great. A very small complication happen wile assembly the right wing. Call Motion and they took care of me immediately. Another 5 star plane another 10 stars to the galactic costumer service of Motion. So much to said one think to do.. Do it do it just do it !!!!!
Something, I always wanted.
Previously, I purchased the Goshawk because it had wing slats and I was thrilled with it. Finding a working model of the F-14 was a real interest. When MotionRC reduced the price of its version of this model, I could not resist. P.S. If there is a price reduction on the F-86, I will purchase that as well.
Free wing F14 Tomcat
Fantastic looking aircraft right out of the box! Just finished building, and everything works great ... couldn’t be happier! Can’t wait to get it upon the air.
F 14 flies perfect...!!
Today i had the maiden of my New F-14 Tomcat and it files very well ...! Also with swept wings.... I,am happy with this plane whats looks v ery good....on the grond and in the air...
Bring out version two!
The fit and finish wasn’t nearly as good as the other Freewing jets I’ve purchased. There are a few decals that need to be revised. The bottom left side of each rudder is missing the curvature. The wheels are way too heavy. I replaced them after my first flight with the wheels from my F-4 Phantom. That was a weight savings of about three ounces. After my fourth flight I swapped the stock power system with the 9-blade 1900kV power system and 100A ESC. (The same as the A-10). That was another weight reduction of about three ounces. It’s a hot performer with the 9-blade fans and I’m sticking with them. Freewing should update the control board so the ailerons are disabled while the wings are swept. Overall it’s a great value for such an awesome jet and I’m having a great time flying it! My flights are on YouTube. https://youtu.be/tj4tFmLwSPw
A number of parts were missing and it has not been built very well. Wiring for a ready made unit is poor. A big thank you to Peter in your UK help team he has been very professional and helpful.
Great airplane. This is my second as I lost my first in a crash doing a high speed pass with the wings folded. This was caused by not enough elevator authority because the instructions suggested a elevator rate of 50% with wing back. This is not a good idea. i will try 75% but up the exponential so it is not so sensitive around neutral , but should still give me enough authority to pull out of a modest dive.
Bigger than I expected, fantastic looking model, quite easy to assemble but not flown yet
Beware of the iX12!!!!
I've enjoyed several flights with this amazing model, but sadly, those days have come to an end. I upgraded my radio system this past Spring to the Spektrum iX12 so that I could fly my F-14 in a more scale-like fashion using nine channels instead of the stock seven. Apparently the transmitter has a defect in it's software that will not properly save the trim settings of a model after switching from model to model. I took my F-14 up for a flight, and then flew a different model. The next time i went to fly my beautiful Tomcat, she was out of control upon takeoff, rolling heavily to the right and nosing up. I made every effort to recover, but she rolled over and dove into the ground. When looked down at my radio, I noticed that the elevator and aileron trims had been reset to zero. Technology is nice when it works, but never assume that it does. If you own an iX12, add the trim settings to your pre-flight checklist. Scott M.
