L-39 Albatros 80mm EDF Jet - PNP from Freewing - FJ21511P

Combining the sport performance of the Avanti and the fidelity of scale aircraft like the A-4 and MiG-21, Freewing continues the legacy of its excellent performing 80mm EDF jets with its Freewing 80mm L-39C/Z Albatros!  Developed originally by Aero Vodochody in the 1960s in what is now the Czech Republic, the Aero L-39 Albatros excelled as a jet trainer platform with its powerful turbofan and overall reliability.  The L-39 and its successive variants continues in service throughout the world in militaries as trainers and light attack platforms, and in civil aviation including aerial demo teams and racing.

The Freewing L-39 Albatros is the largest and most capable production PNP L-39 in the world.  Optimized for high maneuverability and precision flying, the L-39 truly is a “Sport jet wearing Scale jet clothing”.  The PNP version uses a powerful 3530-1850kv brushless motor and 100A ESC to power the 12 blade 80mm EDF.  

The Freewing L-39 Albatros includes grass capable suspension landing gear, a full coverage nose door, scale wingtip lights, and easily removable tip tanks, ordnance, belly gun pod, and wings.  Only one glue joint is required to complete the model’s general assembly.  A plastic lined cockpit also resists deformation under sunlight, and optional 3D Printed cockpit detail upgrade parts are also sold separately.

  • October 9, 2018  -  The “steering servo” port has been designed to stop responding when the gear is up.  Once you put the gear down the steering servo should work again.  If it does not work, try reversing the gear channel.

Vliegeigenschappen zijn fantastisch. Zeer goed landingsgestel op gras. Het spuitwerk kan beter.

L-39 80 mm

Easy to construct and set up - flies like on rails - have 120 flights ( I log all my flights ) - have had numerous hard landings as this is my first jet - have bent several front gear and a couple mains which I replaced - repairs to foam consisted of epoxy and packing tape for gaps as foam will compress and does not come evenly together except with clean breaks - so my quick and dirty repairs don't seem to affect its flight pattern at all - highly recommend this plane as a trainer and go to and as long as you don't crash straight in precision repairs are not needed . If bounce on initial touch down will continue to bounce - so give it full power and go around , it has enough power to regain height. I have a second L-39 which I will fly soon when I feel confident in my landing technique and will hopefully keep it looking as new.

L39

The L39 was delivered very fast and postage was free. It came packed well and was super easy to assemble. On line construction videos are fantastic. Was a bit worried about the first flight as my batteries were heavy and the cg was about 20mm forward off recommended. I needn't have worried though as the plane flew perfectly as it was. It really is an easy plane to fly. Slows down nicely And it's easy to get in to a small grass field. I couldn't be happier.

Worth every penny

The fit and finish of this plane is outstanding. It flies beautifully - just like the Avanti. The navigation and landing lights are really cool and very helpful in maintaining orientation.

L39

The Freewing L39 is at a further level of quality. A trend which has seen a lot of improvement recently in foam models. The incorporation of the control board to control the tidy distribution of wiring is innovative and a welcome improvement. The simplification of construction involving limited glue joints in favour of screws to secure the main components is a further improvement. Finally this is the first model I have flown in which the published C of G is actually correct. Flight characteristics are smooth and predictable with plenty of power coming from the motor on a variety of 6S battery c ratings. A rugged spring compression trailing link landing gear rounds out a very satisfactory design. For my part I wholly endorse this aircraft and look forward to flying it and hopefully further designs of similar quality to come from Freewing and Motion RC
