Freewing F-14 Tomcat Twin 12-Blade 80mm EDF Jet in "Bullet 101" Scheme - PNP - FJ30812P

Northrop Grumman A-10

Version Info: This is the PNP version of the Freewing F-14. The pictures show the optional pylons and weapon set which are not included with the plane. These can be purchased separately by clicking the "upgrades" tab.

We here at Motion RC are proud to announce our Super Scale F-14D Tomcat! Never before has an electric F-14 been produced in this size and with this high a degree of scale fidelity and quality. Easily one of the most beloved jets in history, we’re especially excited to offer this thrilling F-14D Tomcat. Our team worked tirelessly to develop an RC model which brings the excitement and scale performance of this hallmark aircraft to your local flying field and to appropriately honor the F-14 Tomcat’s rightful place in aviation history. We chose to depict “Bullet 101”, the specially marked F-14D from the VF-2 squadron “Bounty Hunters”, which was painted in the mid-1990s to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the F-14’s service in the United States Navy. 

The signature feature of the real F-14 is its sweeping wing, and we've worked to design this model around this function as well. Our lightweight, aluminum “Wing Box” design supports a rigid wing in both forward and swept configurations. The wings pivot on flat bearings to reduce resistance and wear. Electric servoless actuators extend and sweep the wings using steel control rods and brass ball links. The result of this design is a durable, maintenance-free wing sweep feature which provides pilots with a worthy F-14 flying experience.

Scale fidelity, surface details, and builder-friendliness were also specific areas of focus. The PNP model arrives with the main fuselage completely assembled. All the electronics –servos, EDFs, ESCs, UBEC, retracts, and lights—are completely installed at the factory. The builder simply needs to screw on the wings and epoxy on the forward nose section and the assorted surface details like the wing fences, antennas, pitot tube, etc. To further simplify the wiring and setup, this F14 incorporates an onboard mixing circuit board which controls all the servos, taileron/aileron mixing, wing sweeping, and the lighting package.

While the complexity of this F-14D make it the largest, most impressive, and heaviest EDF jet available at Motion RC to date, the aircraft uses two 80mm 12 blade EDFs and two 6s 4000mAh batteries which can propel it through the sky at 100mph. The Freewing F-14 is also extremely capable and stable at slow flight. The model can cruise at 60% throttle, can turn at 40% throttle even with the wings swept rearward, and can land at less than 40mph with full flaps. The F-14D’s two powerplants utilize two 3530-1680kV outrunners and 80A ESCs. An 8 amp UBEC supplies the ten servos with dependable power to all systems.

  • September 19, 2015 - The weapons set shown in the photos is available separately and is not included with the PNP or KIT+ aircraft. The weapons sets do add weight and lots of drag, which decreases the model's top speed by ~12-15 mph.

F-14 Tomcat review 1

Personally to me it’s the best plane on the site. It’s just looks so good and the wing feature is way better. I’d recommend it to anyone buying a high end plane. I will admit it’s a bit expensive if you are buying everything. For me total was around $1030 with plane, radio, batteries and everything needed. If you don’t plan on using flaps, use a 6 channel radio and receiver, much cheaper.

Awesome Plane

Flown the Tomcat around 30 times now and it is the best plane that I have ever owned. I only have a 6 channel receiver, so I do not use the flaps on this plane at all and there is really no need in my opinion. I just take off and land a bit hotter than normal. I have the flaps locked in place......I have video of the plane taking off I would say in under 40 feet just full throttling it until rotation off a small half basketball court at my local park. It hits a small dip/ledge off the backside of the basketball court, sinks about a quarter foot until lift catches the plane and then it's off into an adrenaline rush:) It is capable of taking off a lot quicker than I anticipated. Swept wing mode isn't difficult however I did notice what others have mentioned as far as the plane being a little finicky with the wings back. Not anything drastic, but it's noticeable to me.....You almost have to fly it to understand and feel what people have mentioned. Overall the plane looks amazing, flies great, and is actually faster than I thought it would be. Unboxing it I was like a kid at Christmas time.....Haven't been that excited for a plane in a while. Great job on this one Motion!
