70mm Freewing F-35 Lightning II EDF V2 with Electronic Retracts and Vectored Thrust - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ20111P

Lockheed Martin Officially Licensed Product

This is the new version 2 of the top selling Freewing F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter. The primary change in this new version 2 is the landing gear. The servo actuated landing gear found in version 1 has been replaced with full electronic retracts with metal trunnions. Now you can enjoy this ultra-maneuverable, vectored thrust jet even more knowing that the upgraded landing gear is more durable and more reliable.

Product Updates:

  • May 6, 2013 - The wiring procedure to achieve in-flight on/off selection of the thrust vectoring flight modes is an advanced feature, and accordingly this aircraft is recommended for advanced pilots only. A general wiring diagram is discussed in the manual, but pilots should expect some time to test various wiring arrangements themselves to optimize the thrust vectoring controls to their individual preference.

Durable ship

She’s always fun settling in for smooth landing just remember to start slowing down ahead of time she will land easily good first jet but beware she is fast don’t be afraid of vector it’s your rudder just turn off the up down vector on landing left right can stay on for your rudder keep her high and in close till you get hang of it

F35

I do not have this plane anymore. I got a 15 second flight on it and rolled over and dove into the ground. I'm not sure what happened, but most likely stalled the wing and snap rolled. Other than that it was a good looking airplane. The 4 cell battery was a very tight fit and it was difficult to fit in the receiver.

Good Flyer

The F 35 is a good flyer. It is hard for me to see so I painted red on the elevators, the wing edges, and a little on the front of the fuselage. I haven´t tried the vectoring thrust yet as I want to become more familiar with the flight characteristics. The Elevator is very sensitive so I am using 35% with 60% expo. That seems just right to me.

Freewing F-35 Lighting with TV

Wanted to try F-35 with TV - know its 4s but still want to see how it will preform after a couple mods I've read about. Have many things from Motion Hobby and have been pleased with, waiting for Maiden due to cold weather here in Mi.( Rich )

Can't wait

Took an hour to get plane together, but got both vector servo's slaved to an off/on ch. Now can't wait till I get some decent weather to maiden her. If this is EPS, mine is the best that I've ever seen. I would swear it's EPO. Edf seems to be a bit doggish, but time will tell.

The Juice is Worth Squeeze

This is not so much a review for what the F35 pnp is out of the box. My buddy bought a pnp four months ago, and it flys just fine, he couldnt cg it right with a 2200mah and added three ounces of lead in the battery bay. You need something like a 2600mah. It has a very low wing load and very floaty not difficult to fly in the wind, but kinda got blown around. It was a good plane but then he decided to make this a true five star plane like i did (skip to the last paragraph to save you from technical talk) I bought mine three years back, immediatly sold the original power unit, and slid in a change sun 12b spun by a het 2w27 on 3000mah 5s. The battery bay is great on this plane. Makes for a great place to stick my 8channel reciever, but not a battery. When you look up in the battery bay you can see a large open space. I drew a reference right behind the cockpit, got a very thin exacto knife and carefully, with small forwards and back motions, cut down into the foam. Popped off the shell and had acces to all this space to put a nice heavy (440gram) battery. That 5s fits in wonderfully. I found that a old credit card works great for a thin battery plate to hold down a velcro strap that was all gorilla glued in. Once you do this, you can pull the huge chunk of metal out of the nose and benefit from a heavier battery. The landing gear did not look too strong where it mounts to the foam to which i gorilla glued them in. Not a bunch, just a few tack spots to spread the load if i came down hard or in the tall grass next to the run way. To solve the problem with it jumping off the deck when taking off, i took out the front landing gear, made a 1/8" plywood spacer to put under the mount to get the nose up a little bit. Set CG to 115mm. I programmed, with a 8 channel rx, flaperons and elevons so i can have take off flaps. You have to cut the y connector and solder on a another connector to elevator and aileron to make them 4 connectors. With take off flaps set to about 20 degrees just roll in the power and let the plane take off all on its own with very little input on the remote. I cut four 1" pieces of carbon and put one in towards the front of the wing and one towards the back so when it slide together it would strength the glue seam. I poked a bunch of holes on both sides of the wing root that was to be glued, smeared a line of gorilla glue down the center and in the carbon tube areas, then put a small line of zap epoxy around the gorilla glue, waited 5 minutes and sandwiched it all together. The epoxy would cure before the gorilla glue started to expand and the expanding glue filled in all the poked holes without foaming out the sides making a mess. One last thing is tuning the thrust vector nozzle because lining it up the way the manual tells you has never worked on the last three TV planes. Start off with how the manual tells you. Get it in the air and to a medium cruising speed and trim elevator and ailerons to where you are flying level. Punch to full throttle for a second and then cut the throttle. If it climbs then drops, trim the TV down. If it drops under throttle then climbs with no throttle or goes level, trim the TV up. Then retrim the flight controls accordingly to make it fly level under cruising again. It takes about three or four times trimming both of them until you get it just right where you can punch full throttle and cut it with no change in altitude or angle of attack. The rudder is a little more involved cause it causes roll and yaw. Visual align the sides of the aileron to be level with the wing. If you had right aileron trimmed, just trim the TV nozzle rudder right. In the end, ive raced this plane up and down the field, snap rolls, cobras, cuban 8, flatspins, easy high alpha, pancake landings on the runway, and landings in short grass, for the past three years and the wings nor landing gear have failed. It gives a little wiggle in the back when the wind is more than 13mph and cruising around. Once you roll into the throttle and get up to speed all that goes away and it flys like its on rails. This plane really like the extra weight of a bigger power system Mine is starting to get some hanger rash and i was looking for a new plane for my edf. I keep turning back to re buying the f35 because it doesnt have a cheater hole(great for not ******* up junk on the runway or dirt runway allowing my fans to last much longer and not get out of balance), it has full horizontal control surfaces, and the thrust vectoring is just ****** fun once it is dialed in. The only thing it lacks is rudder control surfaces, but the thrust vectoring doesnt leave me wanting for more yaw control. In the end, this is a five star plane for those willing to put their building skills to use. As a pnp and no mods done its a four star. The stock battery bay really is the worst.

F-35 Lightening VII

Awesome features for the price. Four stars only because EPO would been better IMO and landing gear could have been better but at that price point you can’t complain. Update the fan and esc for real performance!
