Freewing F-4D Phantom II 90mm EDF Jet - PNP
F-4D Phantom II 90mm EDF Jet from Freewing - PNP - FJ31211P
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.

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. BuNos 66-463 became a bona fide “MiG Killer”, being credited for six aerial kills with five different flight crews. 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.
The Freewing 90mm F-4 Phantom II is available in two power system versions. The Standard version requires a 6S 5000-6000 mAh LiPo battery, and is our top recommendation to pilots seeking the best balance between speed, thrust, and cost. The High Performance version requires an 8S 5000 mAh LiPo battery, and delivers increased vertical climbing performance and acceleration. The High Performance version is recommended for Advanced pilots only due to the aircraft’s higher speed envelope and heavier flying characteristics.

- Sept 21, 2018 - This update is specific to the new Grey color version of the 90mm F-4D. The grey version of this model includes two decal sets, one Marines "Grey Ghosts" and one Navy "Sundowners." The plane comes painted to accept the decals for the Grey Ghosts variant. If you wish to use the Navy Sundowner livery, it will look best if you paint your vertical stabilizer white before applying the decals to the tail section. Use a foam safe paint such as basic latex paint available at major hardware stores.

Cool jet, easy assembly, elevator took me an extra minute to set up the right mesure,yet was done. Fly good, an over all i’m still in love with the F-15 , feel more scale then this. Camo works well,fly near you or is bye bye birdy. Easy to loose orientation. Landing it i feel was the hard part more then all the other jet i’ve. Only complain is the tail hook. Why be glued ? Look **** and if need to change horizontal elevator need to be reaped off and damage fuselage. Can be done better for sure. Still learning so don’t take granted what i’m saying. However no matter what do it just do it, another fun bird from Motion SECOND TO NONE!! Galactic service best in business
The only thing I would do better is the arresting hook, make it stronger, and attach it with earth magnetic's.
Another Outstanding Freewing Jet
Freewing/Flightline in conjunction with Motion is certainly the industry leader in foam jets and propeller warbirds. This is another extremely well made product. I also own their Stinger 90, both the olive and silver B-24 and the 1600mm Spitfire and every one of them lives up to their billing, and the F4 is no different. I did this version in my own "Key West" Sundowner Camo version with help from Callie for a custom graphic on the tail-yellow and red instead of the Marine Sundowner version of white and red. Also painted the wings with similar scheme, all to help me with visibility and orientation. Build was very quick and easy, although I also purchased the 3D exhaust nozzels and cockpit, which obviously took more time to prepare than building the jet itself. The only negative is the complaints many have that you can see on Hobby Squawk regarding the break-away nose gear pin. I haven't had that same problem because I changed it with a modified Spitfire axel, so can't confirm. Watch your landing approach and touch down slightly high alpha with the main gear touching first and you should have no problem. When turning toward the landing approach, with gear & flaps down at 50% or less power, use the rudder and some opposite aileron to keep it flat so you have consistent airflow coming into the intake scoops. This may be another plane you buy both, the camo version and the just announced grey Marine version. These are beautiful jets with unlimited customization options. Visitors at the flying field really love seeing this plane.
Another great plane to have.
The most easy plane to assemble so far except for wiring. Love the looks and size. If I only had a place to fly It. Love war birds. Waited a long time for a decent size Phantom. Thanks to Motion for all there hard work to keep us happy.
Amazing F-4 Phantom!!
Cant believe the size and the amount of detail in this fantastic Jet! Can't wait to get this into the air! Took a little while to get all the decals on, but i am very impressed with the detail in even the decals for this model. All O have left to do is set the throws and balance it and she will be ready for her maiden flight!
Although I havent actually flown it yet, this Phantom F-4 kit is impressive in its detail and ease of assembly. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow.
I placed order back in March on back order but I had to cancel it. I Recently reordered and received it in 4 days with free shipping with nothing damaged or missing. After sorting the pieces and making a work space, I watched the motion RC video of F4 build. As a reference I used the book to aid in assembly. Graphics from Callie graphics. I was always awe struck watching them go 90 degrees vertical after a bombing run. Looking forward to maiden flight as I have been following hobby squawk Freewing F4 phantom forum since its inception in February which is extremely informative. When I get a maiden flight in I’ll check back. Thanks Freewing and thanks Motion RC for honoring our service! “ We all gave some, and some gave all.”
The camouflage works!
Have a half dozen flights on my F-4 Phantom. It flies like a dream and I love the plane but beware… The camouflage works extremely well. I have lost orientation on the plane twice. The other day, I unfortunately lost orientation of the plane— went down and Got banged up but totally fixable. Keep your bird a little on the close side.
Another Impressive Model From Freewing
I continue to be impressed by the quality of the Freewing jets. I purchased the Avanti S last summer and the model's quality convinced me to take the next step and get the F-14 Tomcat. Both models are very well put together, look amazing, and fly great. So, knowing all of that, it was a no-brainer to add the F-4 Phantom II to my hangar. The model assembly was straightforward as expected and took very little time. The build video produced by Motion RC was very helpful especially regarding the setup of the elevators; thank you, Pilot Ryan, for the tip. I was a little disappointed that the plane was missing two of the 4" connector cables, but Motion got those out to me in just a couple days. The decals look very nice despite a minor spelling error on one of them ("eject kin" vs. "ejection"). The maiden flight went very well, only a small amount of left aileron trim and she was flying nice and level. I took Pilot Ryan's advice and added a little extra up-elevator to the flap/elevator mix which made the plane pitch up quite a bit but not so much to cause a problem. The Phantom slowed down nicely with full flaps and the maiden landing was textbook. However, due to a weak/defective nose gear strut that snapped in two at the servo, a maiden flight is all she's had so far. I'll definitely be adding more Freewing jets to my collection in the future; the quality of their planes is worth the money.
