Freewing 1450mm (57") Wingspan AT-6 Texan in US Navy Grey Color Scheme - Receiver Ready - FW30321P
The Freewing AT-6 Texan is is proving to be an excellent all around plane. This is one of the highest quality foam planes we have seen. The quality of this plane is a step above most other manufacturers RC planes. The Freewing AT-6 Texan features shock absorbing landing gear and nylon hinges on all the control surfaces as opposed to the simple foam hinges on the majority of foam RC planes. Optional flaps are molded into the wings along with a pocket for the flap servos. Better yet, the hardware for the optional flaps is included. You only need two 9 gram servos to make the flaps fully operational in about 10 minutes. Robust, metal shock absorbing retractable landing gear is standard on this plane.
Tech Note: If you are using a 3600mAh to 4000mAh LiPo battery, you will need to add approx 3 to 5 ounces of weight in the nose of this aircraft to achieve proper Center of Gravity. If you fly with a smaller battery, you will need to add approx 6 to 9 ounces of weight. The exact weight will depend on your flying preference (tail heavy vs. nose heavy). There is plenty of room in the cowl area to accept weights. We recommend using Great Planes segmented lead weights.
- Super scale details include molded rivets and panel lines, hand-painted pilot figures, US Navy graphics, and radial engine cover.
- Durable EPO foam construction for quick building and easy repair.
- Nylon hinges on all control surfaces (superior to foam hinges).

Incredible detail and a very well structured airplane. Looks tough and rugged. Can't wait to fly it. Thanks motion RC
I bought this plane last fall, and have around 25 flights on her. I did all the mods recommended, and it does takes a lot of weight to get it balanced. Its not a plane that's going to take off in 5 feet. Let your speed build up and once in the air it flies great. It has nice detail and looks awesome on low flybys. I am very happy with it. As mentioned by others, keep the power on when landing. When it stalls, its not pretty. To solve that problem, add the flaps, they make landings a breeze! jeff
Assembly was good,elevator servo had to be replaced,left aileron does not have the same throw as the right, may have to replace it also.have not flown yet.
This is my 5th airplane that I've owned, and 2nd large 1400 or better warbird. Assembly on this plane is a piece of cake and if you have built a few birds it should easily take you less than an hour and that is even if you take your time. Take off requires just a touch of rudder to keep her straight, and once in flight she flew like a dream, landings without the flaps require some pep so be prepared to keep power on all the way down. Lots of room under the canopy on this one its going to make a good candidate to try out an Eagle gyro. That said: ***Like others have mentioned, keep an eye on the CG mine also required a significant amount of weight to get it to balance! So take the time on getting the CH correct and you won't be disappointed!***
Easy nice build. Added 10 oz of lead to the nose as shown on the Motion R/C build video. I did all of the recommended mods. Model looks great assembled. Mine had a slight 12al mishap from the factory. The Stars and Bars were upside down on the fuse. Motion is sending a 12al set to fix this. Take offs - feed the power in smoothly, stay on the rudder keep the climb out fairly flat with the power on and you will be rewarded with great looking scale take offs. Get to slow or too high of an angle of attack and she will ground loop in a heartbeat. Flying - again keep the speed up and don't get to slow as this bird will tip stall abruptly. The T-6 is also a rudder bird! Lead the turns with rudder for a smooth coordinated turn. Does standard war bird aerobatics with ease. Landing - get your A game on. Long flat approaches are best at about 30% power. Don't get to slow or it won't be pretty. Tip stalls and ground loops will be the result! Overall I like this airplane. In my opinion it is not a good first warbird, but fly it right and you will be rewarded. I bought the grey version. Shows up well in the air and is impressive to see fly. Enjoy!
