Freewing F-16 V2 70mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS
70mm F-16 V2 EDF Jet - ARF PLUS - from Freewing - FJ21111K+
Version Info: This is the ARF+ version for pilots who wish to install their own power system. All primary electronics including servos and landing gear come pre-installed, just add your own power system (EDF, motor, and ESC) to begin flying.
The F-16C “Fighting Falcon” is a single-engine multirole fighter aircraft originally developed for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, the aircraft evolved into a successful all-weather multirole platform. The F-16C features an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and multiple locations for mounting weapons and other mission equipment. Operating in nearly 30 countries to this day, the F-16 has distinguished its place in aviation history.
Freewing has modeled this brilliant aircraft in EPO foam with a 70mm electric ducted fan (EDF) power system (not included in the ARF PLUS). With a 1306mm length and 878mm wingspan, this 1/12 scale flying replica including many exciting features! An accurate scale outline with sharp surface details and panel lines make this model stand out at your airfield. Removable main wings and a magnetic nose cone make transport very convenient. The cockpit battery bay cover is secured with a sliding latch to prevent separation during flight, and the entire aircraft is reinforced with strategic placement of carbon tubes to withstand vigorous flying maneuvers. A control board helps to consolidate all the wiring for a clean battery bay. For pilots who want an extra “scale” touch, an optional ordnance set is sold separately, containing two AIM-120 AMRAAM and two AGM-88 HARM missiles.
The Freewing 70mm F-16C V2 features electric retractable landing gear for lower drag and better scale appearance during flight. The aircraft is designed for stability, strong vertical climbing performance, and short takeoff distance. The aircraft can also maintain a high alpha of 30 degrees to demonstrate its superior low speed stability. We recommend the 6s Pro or this ARF PLUS version for skilled intermediate or advanced pilots with experience flying at least two EDFs.
We are proud to feature this exciting aircraft in the modern three tone gray US Air Force base colors, and three decal sets are included inside the box for you to choose from to customize your model from various actual Air Force squadrons.

Très bon avion, stable et facile
I was surprised how good this jet looks and flies!
I have the 90mm Super Scale as well and this one is a very close second. It is a good flying and very detailed model.
Nice 70mm Jet!
I had the Arctic Camo version of this, it was very difficult to orient in flight, especially against cloud cover. I tried doing some high Alpha flight ...... first and last time for that jet! I replaced it with the gray version, seems easier to maintain orientation, transferred the in runner power and premium gear from the former which was the plus version. This plane flies great, you do need to hold substantial back pressure in the turns and make sure you are right on with approach speed. Good approach = good landing. I am flying with the missile package. If you’re looking for a good first jet, try the Avanti, of the 5 motion jets I have it is the most relaxing to fly, it just grooves! But this F16-C is a performer!
Freewing F-16 V2 70mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS,
Loved this jet so much that I have to get another! Just taking my power system from old jet to the new.
No. 1 met her demise due to my dumb thumbs, loved this jet so much that I had to get another! Just taking my power system from old jet to the new. Thank you Motion for carrying the ARF version of this aircraft!
Did the job for me
Just made to order when repairing or replacing an F 18 when taken out of service.
Bought Freewing F-16 V2
Love the quality,not only the plane but even more the very good service of Motion RC. Very happy with everything could not be more happyer keep up the good work guys/girls of motion rc ;) Have to cut open the backend to instal my own tppower edf unit (going from 80A to 110A) and led tail exhaust ring. So this is going to be a long project for me butt well worth it. Don't know how it will perform yet because of the project build i will go trough.
Freewing F-16 v2
Well, bought it to replace my version 1. Wish this one had thrust vectoring! Over all the build was way great. Everything fit very well. Its gteat that they have spar's in the wings and elevator's. Only issue i have had is i bought this as a ARF without motor and edf, and i used my older 12 blade aluminum edf and inrunner motor with the same kv as the PNP version is sold with and 100 amp esc running 6s 4000mah and i dont have enought thrust to even take off. So i have ordered the factory motor and edf and i will see if that is the problem.
Escellent flyer, but lands HOT
I really like this plane in particular, because it is one of he few 70mm jets that can be hand launched. It flies very well, and is extremely stable even at high rates. My only criticism would be the fact that this plane could use an air brake to slow it down on landing. I fly this with a JP hobby EDF and 6S 4000mah pack, and at times it takes quite a bit of room and runway to bleed off airspeed. Also, I wish there was an option to buy the plane as a kit, without the landing gear and electronics. I literally threw the gear in the trash, because none of my local flying fields have runways, or grass that is short enough to make runway takeoffs a possibility with this plane.
