Freewing F-15C Eagle Super Scale High Performance 90mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing F-15C Eagle Super Scale High Performance 12-Blade 90mm EDF Jet in "Gulf Spirit" Scheme - PNP - FJ30912P
Version Info: This is the High Performance version of the Freewing F-15C. This version includes a powerful HET 1680kv inrunner motor which offers greater thrust, yet slightly decreased flight duration.
The F-15C Eagle is arguably the world’s most successful fourth generation fighter jet. It delivered the highest thrust, fastest top speed, furthest range, highest combat kill ratio and longest service life among its contemporaries. Our team worked closely with Freewing to develop an RC model which brings the excitement and scale performance of this hallmark aircraft to your local flying field. We chose the livery of AF85102 “Gulf Spirit” of the 58th TFS/33rd TFW, whose pilots combined for three kills during the Gulf War in 1991 and continued on strength with the 12th FS into the 2000s.
Freewing’s F-15C boasts a powerful single 90mm power system and features a range of scale details which set it apart from any other electric F-15. Accurate aircraft lighting using “Daybright” LEDs, sequenced gear doors and landing light, aluminum landing gear struts with ample compression for operation on short grass or pavement, and metal trunnion retracts for durability. The aircraft also features highly detailed 30 piece plastic exhaust nozzles which rival the 3D detail level of RC turbine jets costing thousands of dollars, and an electric speed brake which works in conjunction with the flaps to stabilize that perfect scale landing approach. The elevator mounting and control hardware is reinforced to provide rigidity in high-G maneuvers. Each F-15C also uses over 100 waterslide decals, meticulously applied at the factory by hand to finish off the iconic look of an F-15C Eagle.
Beyond its outer scale fidelity, we optimized this F-15 for ease of use, making it a great choice for weekend flying. A single 90mm powers the aircraft for better efficiency versus a twin 70mm setup, and the bifurcated outlets are sized at 88% FSA total. The fiberglass nose cone easily detaches with magnets, and the wings can be removed for transport. In fact, the model assembles entirely with only 14 screws, and all surfaces can be removed for transport, repair, or replacement.
Intended as a "Scale Plus" flyer, the Freewing F-15C excels in scale maneuvers and stability throughout its flight envelope. The aircraft's wing and elevator use semi-scale airfoils, and at the middle throttle range the aircraft is "floaty." Compared to other 90mm jets, we would rank the F-15 as one of the more easy to fly. With speed brakes and flaps deployed, we clocked the F-15’s landing speed at 23mph, and we clocked an average top speed of 100mph in level flight. With mixed throttle, an Admiral 6s 5000 mAh 50c battery gives 3-4 minutes of flight.

Bad aileron servo.
Had a bad aileron servo under load. So on maiden once you banked it into an aileron turn it wouldnt come out because only one wing had a working aileron. So on 3rd turn around i couldnt save it and it went it. And it was a struggle to fly the whole time. I have many edf's and this was the worst one i have ever flown. I have also flown other peoples at my club and this one i got was something wrong right out of the box... but it is beautiful. And motionrc does a great job with shipping ect.
Freewing F-15C High Performance
I purchased the F-15 because I have always thought the Eagle was an impressive aircraft. This is my second jet after buying an F-104 about 4 months ago. My experience with the F-104 was great but its was a challenge to get decent landings. I'm not sure if our field elevation of 2600 feet above sea level has anything to do with it. However the F-15 was easy to assemble and the aircraft was easily as stable without the gyro as the F-104 was with a gyro. I have noticed that there is a fair difference with speed with the F-104 faster. Fortunately the F-15 lands beautifully at a much slower speed. I'm already thinking of what to try next. Freewing makes a great product and the support from Motion has been first class.
I bought the Freewing B-24 and was super impressed by it's quality for its price so i dove into a FW F-15, not as nice but overall I'm happy. It's a little "tippy" in the air. and had to make new elevator control rods because they were short. Also the front of the fuse is a little loose, odd but ok. I see its removable for damage repair.
Freewing F-15 is Awesome!!
This F-15 looks and flies like the full scale model. I bought the weapons kit for it as well and boy does that add to the realism. The speed brake is also very helpful when slowing the plane down for landing. Also, there is a fine difference between too slow and too fast for landing as I have found. If you hit the sweet spot the plane touches down gently and rolls out very smooth. Overall a great plane with some of the best scale takeoffs ive ever seen!
Freewing 90mm F-15
I have built and flown several turbine F-15s and can say without a doubt that you cannot find or build an F-15 of any brand for the price ,quality, and performance of this Freewing F-15. All can say the same about my latest purchase, the Freewing A 10.
Conducted 5 flights on my new F-15 High Performance EDF jet, and I must say I'm very impressed. The build: Very straight forwardâ€¦not complicated, as everything was simple and well designed. There was very little gluing involved (just 2 pieces at the end of the fuselage and 4 small pieces to add detail â€“ pitot tubes and such). The wings and tail surfaces screw on, and everything had good travel with no binding. Only problem was the space where the wires from the rudders go into the fuse was VERY tight, and quite a bit of force had to be used to get the horizontal stabs to fit. I was worried I was going to break the tails, so much force had to be used to get them seat right. Eventually go them in. There was sufficient room for the receiver and wires. I'm using a receiver with a satellite, and it's pretty cramped finding a place for that, but I got it to fit. The 6S 5000 mAh battery fits nicely with no problems. Just added some Velcro to the battery tray. The plane balanced perfectly at the spot recommended. The plane looks fantastic. This is probably the best looking foam model I've ever seen. It's very detailed and scale. The proportions seem perfect to me. This is a really big plane, so the wings can easily be removed for transport, if needed. Tail could come off, too if needed, although I wouldn't do it unless absolutely necessary. Flying: I set up the throws per the manual, and they were perfect. I flew it on high rate, as the low rate seemed a little light on the aileron and elevator throws. The plane flew great, with no vices, and no trim was needed. It was perfect with the eyeball test on the control surface alignment. I did it per the video on the Motion site (thanks!). I have the Hi-Performance motor, and I'm glad I did. It's not a speed demon, but it has sufficient power. I think the standard set-up would not be powerful enough for me. I'm getting 3 minutes flight time and coming down around 30% on the battery, with some high speed passes and full power take-off. Always want more, but I'm okay with that, as long I don't come down with a drained battery. I did have to put some down elevator with flap deployment. It wanted to balloon with the flaps deployed. Not much, just 3% down elevator on take-off flap and 7% down with landing flap. It flared nicely and landed with no problem. Just a little power on landing, not much needed at all. I did have to dial down the throw on the nose wheel, as it seemed a little squirly on roll-out. Let it roll out to almost a stop before turning. It will tip a wing if turning too fast. Overall, a very very nice plane. It's straight forward to fly and great handling. Although it's a big plane, it's not heavy. Plenty of wing and lifting body and lots of powerâ€¦.great combination. If you've got the Stinger, F-86, T-45 or similar big EDF down, go for it. You can handle it, and you'll be glad you did. Enjoy!
