Freewing 80mm EDF A-6 Intruder Attack Jet - Receiver Ready in Navy USS Forrestal Color Scheme - FJ20412P

Louis E. Thomassy, Jr., Captain USN (Ret.) holds the Freewing  80mm A-6 Intruder.  The one he flew was just a tad bigger.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.

Nice looking plane

I am disappointed that the fit and finish was not better. The rear fuselage did not fit with out gaps on one side of the joint. The danger decal's on the intakes were upside down. I really think this Jet needs lights installed from the factory. Need to include the weapons set with the kit. It is currently unavailable. Metal retracts instead of the plastic base retracts concern Me for durability on rough or grass runways. I have not yet flown this jet due to winter weather here in Michigan.

Nice looking plane, but the elevator setup wasn't installed correctly

The plane looks nice and has been fun to fly, but during setup I noticed that the metal pin that you attach the horizontal stabilizers to was backwards. I needed to unscrew the control connections and switch it around myself. I then noticed that one of the securing screws wouldn't tighten. The plastic had been hollowed out from when the factory guy installed the screw (he over-tightened it, stripping out the plastic). I also adjusted the control horn hole position to the second closest hole to the center to reduce the elevator throws. The stock position was giving me almost 4 times the amount of throw as needed! I'm not sure if this was just my model, or if it's how these are all setup from the factory, but BE CAREFUL about this.

Freewing A-6 Intruder 80mm EDF Jet

I like the plane really well.. good quality as always... I Only wish that it came with NO MARKINGS... Now it will require new paint to cover your markings so I can apply mine...

Flies Great, But Beware!

Easy to assemble, flies great and looks fantastic. My first EDF, and I was impressed. Flew like a pattern trainer. Lost the airplane though, because I did two things wrong... the remote receiver antenna was oriented the same way as the receiver antenna, and I trusted the BEC to provide power throughout the flight... voltage dropped to the point where the receiver 'browned out' and I lost control. Replacement A6 has been received, upgrading to the DX8 and AR8010T receiver to monitor receiver battery voltage. I'm also installing a separate flight pack battery just for the receiver.

Great aircraft!

Who doesn't love the A-6?! This is a great model of an iconic cold war workhorse. The aircraft went together well. I was able to get everything together and dialed within a single evening. It flies like a dream. My only desires for the model would be nose gear doors, scaled pilot and BN figures and the additional pylons for the wings. Easy enough to do but would be great out of the box. Perhaps a Prowler version is in the future...
