Freewing 1450mm (57") Wingspan AT-6 Texan in USAF Yellow Color Scheme - Receiver Ready - FW30311P

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

AT 6

Kit was very good. It has a nasty habit of tip stalling if you get slow any where during flight. Landing must carry power and fly it right to the ground. When it does stall you need altitude or a box to carry pieces.

Freewing AT-6 Texan

Comes out of the box and looks beautiful. Easy assembly with about 8 screws. But and its a big but, it is nearly impossible to get the CG right. I had to use 250gr. of weight stuck on the outside of the cowling to even come close to the recommended CG of 70-80 millimeters. Even with that much weight the best I could get the CG was 90 millimeter from leading edge of wing. The nose on the plane is too short. If it was 2" longer the battery would slide farther to the front to adjust for the tail weight. Once I got the CG set the best I could I did the maiden flight. Very solid flyer with a strong motor. Its a scale flyer so you need to fly it like a real plane. No radical manuevers. I have heard some guys talk about a tendency to tip stall, but I have not had that problem.

Correction

This is an update to my review from 9/23/16. Motion RC got right back to me about the glue problem and offered the proper solution. Somehow I missed the e-mail when it was sent to me on the very day that I asked for support. Motion RC costumer support is the best! I will continue to go to Motion RC for my RC plane needs!

Needs work

I have ordered many planes from Motion RC and have never had any complaints before now. This plane needs a lot of work in order to get it flight-ready. I needed a full 10 oz. of weight to get the CG correct but I did expect this due to the plane's short nose. The color of the plastic parts does not match the foam parts and required color-matched paint from the hardware store to correct. The canopy was glued on poorly with lots of gaps that required additional gluing to make it fit properly. The above 3 problems were easy fixes but the next one is not. While trying to attach the wing to the fuselage, I was unable to get one of the screws to start. An investigation revealed that the hole in the fuselage mount was full of glue from when it was mounted at the factory. When I attempted to remove the glue, the part broke and now I have no way to secure that portion of the wing to the fuselage. The broken part is not offered as a spare for purchase. Finally, you most definitely must do the landing gear modifications detailed on the RCInformer YouTube video. A message to Motion RC concerning the broken fuselage/wing mount has gone unanswered for a few days now. The reviews on these boards usually laud their customer service. Maybe I caught them on an off week. I hope to hear from them soon.
