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

Freewing F4-D Phantom II 90mm EDF Jet - Winner for Best Scale Jet at 2018 AEF.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.

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

Product Updates:

  • 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 red before applying the decals to the tail section. Use a foam safe paint such as basic latex paint available at major hardware stores.
  • March 22, 2018   -   For modelers with access to a 3D Printer or who want to use a third party 3D printing service, we are offering for a limited time the original .STL files for free download.  Modelers are responsible for preparing the file for their own printer’s specifications.  These downloadable files are ideal for modelers who enjoy tinkering with printer settings and materials.  Please note, we only provide the .STL files themselves; we cannot provide tech support for your specific printer.   By downloading the .STL files, you agree to not monetize the file in any way without Motion RC’s express written consent.  If you have your own 3D printer, or have access to one, you can download the STL files directly at this link.  (There are 22 total STL ladder, cockpit and nozzle files, formatted for 3D printing included in this .ZIP file).

Looks and flies great

This model was easy to build. Instructions are easy to follow. Beautiful model. It's a real head turner. She flies with good authority on the stock 6s setup. Only 4 stars due to the weakness of the flying stab linkage / servo. My ball link (female rod end) bent under some stress. I ended up modding mine. I augered out some foam and fabricated a servo tray from plywood. I installed a standard sized metal geared hi torque servo. I installed DuBro 4-40 ball links with a turnbuckle for the control rod. All is good.

Awesome Jet

I did the maiden flight at our Warbirds Over Arkansas fun fly this past Sat June 8th, it was a huge hit, everyone just loved seeing it fly, it flew fantastic and looked awesome in the air, it was very easy to put together, took me about 40-45 min’s. Everything fit very well and worked perfect, Freewing has knocked this one out of the park, i love this Jet and will be flying it a lot, it flies super smooth

2nd Try

Lost #1 due to failed elevator push rod ball link. Upgrading to high strength automotive ball link and 4-40 push rod and high strength servo connector for elevator. Added extra glue to elevator servo. Enjoy the flying characteristics!

Awesome be sure to get the flaps right

Flap settings for me 0 ..... 0 no flaps Position 2 takeoff flaps - 87 ..... -23 elevator Position 3 landing flaps -100 - 30 elevator For me flaps are for landing at speed flying around at more than third throttle will cause severe up pitch lowering from third throttle slowly gives me carrier landings short circular approaches Fly's scale want speed get the L 39 Fly's on rails 3 minutes to 4 with throttle management on 5000 admiral

Very good quality

My first model from freewing and i'm very pleased with the F4. Compared to other brand more expensive model the freewing F4 wins in both price and quality of structure and paint.

FPV Version

My latest FPV conversion of a magnificent Freewing plane. Not too much room to spare for the FPV grear but it was ok. A little bit of electric noise due to the EDF in the fuselage nearby (A-10 is much better!). She really goes like on rails but requires a good level of thrust in tight turns and ooh boy - does using the rudder in turns make a big difference! Landing is quite forgiving. Good response on the rudders in the final approach and a great absorbing gear that swallows a lot. If the touch-down speed is right she has a very short roll distance. A very cool FPV plane with a wide envelope. Currently my most favorite plane in my hangar! https://youtu.be/49pRfwsaHT8
