F-4D Phantom II 90mm EDF Jet from Freewing - ARF PLUS - FJ31211A+

Version Info: This is the ARF+ version for pilots who wish to install their own power system. All primary electronics including servos and landing gear retracts come pre-installed, just add your own power system (EDF, motor, and ESC) to begin flying.

Freewing F4-D Phantom II 90mm EDF Jet - Winner for Best Scale Jet at 2018 AEF.The specter has been revealed!  Aviation enthusiasts have long loved the F-4 Phantom, and Freewing and Motion RC are extremely proud to introduce our 90mm Super Scale Series rendition of this ultimate warfighter!  For more than 50 years, the F-4 Phantom delivered the versatile capabilities required of an all-weather frontline supersonic interceptor, fighter-bomber, SEAD, and reconnaissance platform.  Less than a year after its retirement from US military service, you can still keep the F-4 Phantom flying in your RC fleet!

RC pilots have consistently requested a large F-4 EDF jet that performs excellently out of the box without endless modifications. We developed this F-4 to deliver reliability, durability, and performance from your very first flight.  Grass operation is a hallmark of the Freewing 90mm F-4. With its wide stance, tall main tires, Oleo suspension nose strut and concealed trailing link suspension main struts, this aircraft performs well on rougher grass fields.

Super scale details include accurate dual landing lights flush-mounted into the scale operating nose wheel doors, DayBright position lights, rivet detail, static arrestor hook, and period accurate ordnance comprising four AIM-9D Sidewinders and two 370 gallon fuel tanks on removable hardpoints. Plastic details include pitot tubes, ejection seat pull rings, and molded exhaust nozzles.  The large fiberglass nose cone is magnetic and removable, and the chin pod beneath it is foam, allowing easy removable and customization for other versions (-C or late -D).  An optional, highly detailed 3DPUP set (“3D Printed Upgrade Part”) is available that represents the correct Mk H-7 ejection seats and cockpit instrument panels in high detail. Download the 3D Print-ready files for free!

Representing the famed aircraft BuNos 66-463 operated by pilot Richard “Steve” Ritchie and weapons systems officer Charles “Chuck” DeBellevue when they scored their fifth kill together on May 10, 1972 over Vietnam, the Freewing 90mm F-4 arrives pre-painted in classic SEA (South East Asia) Camo and proudly wears the markings of the 555th TFS.  For piloting wanting to customize their F-4 with their own scheme, we recommend Callie-Graphics.com.

Such a large RC model aircraft remains easy to transport with magnetic removable fiberglass nose cone and removable wings with a convenient flexible wire harness that attaches at each wing root. Large flaps, brass ball links, reliable control hardware, and digital servos throughout the aircraft provide positive control, and a specially designed elevator mechanism incorporates two ball bearings for smooth rotation at all times.

Own the biggest and best performing foam EDF F-4 Phantom in the world – Rejoice RC pilots, Freewing has delivered another grand slam!

Freewing F-4 ARF+

I purchased the ARF+ so that I could add my own power system. I installed the Freewing 90mm 12 Blade Metal EDF 6S Power System with 4068-1680kV Brushless HET Inrunner Motor - E7225 with a Freewing 120A ESC with outboard BEC and the Admiral 5000 mAh 6 cell battery. Thie setup is extremely fast and I see no real need to go to 8 cells. The only negative is 2 min of flight time. The performance is great.

It's hard to add anything new that has not already been said

What can I say? This is one phantastic edf ! I begged for 2 years for this plane and finally have one. Fit and finish is Supreme Royale. Goes to together very easily. And it's a modder's dream, especially with the 3D printed cockpits, J-79 nozzles, Callie graphics, RC Geek's center afterburner, ordinance. Some have even added a working drag chute I went with the VF-111 Navy Sundowners livery. Go Navy ! If you're surfing reviews on this model, I think you will be very pleased. Just click buy !

Wonderfull scale but......

The model is Wonderful scale but the steering-servo of front gear didn't work. So i tried to order but it was out of stock. After replacing with an alternativ servo i realise, that the elektric board damage the servo and it worked, when i pluged in directly to the Receiver.

Awesome Jet!

Thank you MotionRC for bringing such a fine jet to market! The Phantom was very easy to assemble. It can be built in less than an hour. Although it’s not my fastest or most maneuverable jet in my fleet it will always have a place in my hangar. It just looks awesome! It is the most stable jet whether in the air or on the ground. It’s like the longboard of the aviation world. It’s so stable on the ground one can easily slow down after landing using S-turns without risk of tipping and scraping a wingtip. There’s more than enough power on the stock version. Two and a half minutes of flight time goes by too fast. I couldn’t give it five stars because the front of the canopy wasn’t glued on this and my previous PNP version. Also there are numerous spelling errors on the decals. It’s an excellent value for the money. I’d like to see future aircraft with painted servos. I airbrushed some Testors dark tan on the tail and it was a perfect match. My test flight was smooth and I just posted it on YouTube. https://youtu.be/eh96EmN-ntI Sign me up to preorder the latest and greatest F-18 Project Foil.
