Freewing A-6 Intruder 80mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing A-6 Intruder 80mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing 80mm EDF A-6 Intruder Attack Jet - Receiver Ready in Navy USS Forrestal Color Scheme - FJ20412P
During its service life, the Grumman A-6 Intruder was the US Navy and Marine Corps premier close combat, mid-wing attack aircraft. The Intruder was in service between 1963 and 1997 and was designed as an all-weather medium attack aircraft to replace the piston-engined Douglas A-1 Skyraider.
We are proud to offer such a historic plane as our first 12 blade 80mm EDF offering. The A6 Intruder is easily one of the most requested models, so we wanted to offer an EDF jet that would stand apart from its competitors. As you've come to expect from Freewing Model, the A6 intruder is loaded with scale features and performance componentry. The new 80mm 12-blade EDF with metal housing powered by a powerful 1750kV motor produces nearly 6 pounds of thrust for awesome speed and incredible maneuverability. The sound produced from the 12 blade EDF will simply blow you away.
While 5 and 6 blade EDF produce a high pitched whining sound, the 12 blade EDF with metal housing produces the "whoosh" and air crushing sound similar to a gas turbine jet. Additional upgraded features include a 80A Hobbywing ESC, 9g precision servos, electronic retracts with full metal shock absorbing struts, and scale drop down flaps. Own one of the most sought after, highly detailed, best built RC foam jet on the market - the Freewing A-6 Intruder.
- Model officially licensed by Northrop Grumman.
- 12 Blade factory balanced EDF with metal housing combined with 3530-1680KV brushless outrunner motor produces realistic jet turbine sound and an incredible 6 lbs of thrust
- Composite fan blades combined with metal EDF housing make the A6 AMA compliant (the fan blades themselves are NOT metal, so there are no flying restrictions)
- Super scale details include two hand painted pilots, full instrument panel, refueling probe, scale drop tanks, airfoil panel lines, and complete USS Forrestal graphics package
- 80 Amp Hobbywing ESC with 5A BEC
- Electronic retractable landing gear with all metal shock-absorbing struts
- Steerable, shock absorbing nose gear for enhanced ground maneuverability
- Full function drop down flaps allow shorter take-off distances and slow, scale landings
- Full function linked horizontal stabilizer/elevator gives incredible climb and descent capability and true to life scale detail
- Carbon spars and EPO foam construction provide the perfect balance between strength and flexibility
- Nylon hinges on all control surfaces (superior to foam hinges)
- Outrunner motor, servos, ESC and EDF come pre-installed for your convenience.

I have recently purchased a freewing a6 intruder and on delivery of the jet was surprised by how well it was packed. The finish of the airframe is excellent. It assembles very easily but I have not been able to fly it yet because of the coronavirus .
Plane is nice. Your company isn't what it used to be.
First flight needed elevator trim from manual settings. Not even close. Once trimmed flies perfectly with all the baggage hanging under. Looks awesome
I've flown a few jets in the past and this one always intrigued me. The A6 only took about 20 minutes to put together not counting the time for the glue to dry where the two fuselage parts join. Not too crazy about the screws that keep the elevators in place, I will need to constantly check them before each flight. This is the main reason why I'm only giving this 4 stars out of 5. The maiden itself went beautifully, 2 clicks on the left and a few clicks up and she flew nice and level. The landing was like a trainer, she glided right in on to the pavement. The only other minor issue I have with the jet is that the flaps look a little warped but it did not affect the flight characteristics. All in all, great jet and love flying it.
Thanks to Motion RC Europe; brilliant fast delivery and great customer service - thank you!!
Looks good little blemish on the nose other than that looks to be pretty good quality. The only thing that gets me is I ordered mine last monday cause they said they only had 15 left and today it’s 36$ cheaper
I’ve had mine for about 6 months now. Here’s my set up and what I’ve learned. I installed a 5A BEC and 2 satellite antennas for redundancy. I do this for 100% of my jets. I’ve had brownouts and signal loss before, always resulting in crashes, but none since I started doing these 2 additions. It took some work to fit it all in the A6 and leave room for the battery to move, but I don’t worry about losing it for the wrong reason. I also use a Hobby Eagle gyro and assign a channel so I can turn it off if it starts fighting me. Flew yesterday in 10-15 knots, gusty and it was solid. Extra piece of mind for takeoff and landing too. I ripped off the front gear after about 3 flights. 2 problems. The battery board is very thin with a lot of cutouts. So the servo mount flexes. And the length of the strut is good for nose up takeoffs but the “lever” length when it touches down in grass gives it a lot of force to tear away. So I put a larger MiG strut and servo in, and made a thicker battery board. No problems yet. BTW, the mains have plastic trunions. I called Motion about it because I thought the spec said metal. The tech said he wanted me to fly it for a while because he had found the plastic was durable and gave it some extra shock absorption. He was right. No issues to date. The stabilizer travel range is too high with 100% servo travel. The movement is “steppy” and will cause over rotation. I reduced travels to 70% and there is plenty of range and operation is smoother. This plane has small ailerons and therefore a very low roll rate (I’m not sure it can even be axial rolled) so you have to keep turns shallow at low speeds like on final or it can get into stalls without enough time to recover. I land with full flaps. Fly it to ground effect, reduce power, pull back as it loses speed and it will touch down mains first every time. Note that it has a large wing and large flaps so it will bleed off speed better than any other jet I’ve seen. Don’t forget to keep some power on, though. Or it will bleed and tip stall. The usual reasons to not use too much power near touchdown aren’t there. Fly it down, reduce power, and touchdown airspeed is totally manageable. And rollout is maybe 30-50 feet. I’ve only gotten into trouble when I don’t manage rudder and I don’t land flat. Last comment: it’s nice and loud on takeoff, and a graceful scale flyer. A crowd pleaser. Not a super fast, nimble sport jet. I fly it when I want to have low stress jet days.
one of the elevator servos was not connected causing the second to fall resulting in a crash
