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 white before applying the decals to the tail section. Use a foam safe paint such as basic latex paint available at major hardware stores.

ANTENNA VS PITOT TUBES

I LOVE ALMOST EVERY ASPECT OF THIS F4. NOT PLEASED WITH THE EXPOSURE OF THE RUDDER SERVO, MAYBE COULD HAVE EVEN A PARTIAL COVER? ALSO, PILOT RYAN IN HIS BUILD VIDEO CALLED THE PITOT TUBES ON THE VERTICAL FIN ANTENNAS. I NOTICED ON THE INSTRUCTION SHEET IT ALSO REFERENCED THE TUBES TO ANTENNAS. THEY ARE BOTH PITOT TUBES ONE FOR THE AIR DATA COMPUTER AND ONE (GUESSING) COULD BE FOR THE RUDDER LIMITER. NO BIG DEAL, JUST WANT TO KEEP IT AUTHENTIC. THANK YOU FOR LISTENING, DAN

Outstanding Product

Extremely well made jet and MRC's customer service is the best in the industry. This is my 3rd F4, had a problem with the elevator servo on the first and MRC took care of the resulting mishap. I replaced it with my own version I call the "Key West" Sundowner in camo, with help from Callie of course, and the next one I did in the Blue Angel scheme, featured here. Love this jet. Did replace the nose landing gear pin with the Spitfire axel, although I never broke the stock pin like others have. If you come in nose gear first, you will break the stock pin, or bend the modified pin, take your choice, either way, this is definitely a bird you should have in your hangar. Assembles in a very short time frame, unless of course if you are going to change the scheme as I did. At the field, the wings go on, or off in minutes so it is very easy to transport and get ready to fly. Hats off to both Freewing and Motion RC, you have a customer for life. I have purchased 7 planes from MRC this year alone, and they are my #1 source.

Feedback on initial flight characteristics of 90mm PNP Freewing F-4D

Recommended control throws on aileron, elevator are way too much to insure smooth and graceful realistic flights as well as avoid unexpected stalls at moderate to higher speeds. Recommended control throws combined with recommended full flap setting could easily result in a dangerous stall when making turns from downwind to base and base to final at slower approach speeds. Never deploy full flaps except on straight in final approach to landing.

Camo works

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

Phantom Dream

The only thing I would do better is the arresting hook, make it stronger, and attach it with earth magnetic's.
