Freewing F-5 Tiger II 80mm EDF Jet - ARF - FJ20811K

Northrop Grumman A-10
Introducing the fifth jet in Freewing's 80mm EDF Jet Series, the iconic F-5 Tiger II. This model proudly wears the livery of the CAG’s jet of the VFC-111 “Sun Downers”, an adversary training squadron in Key West, Florida. Freewing’s rendition incorporates a thicker airfoil to enhance the lifting body design of the original F-5, imparting the stability of an RC model with the standoff scale looks of the real jet. Utilizing Freewing’s proven 80mm 12 blade EDF with a 1750kv outrunner motor and 80A ESC, this F-5 model offers speed and scale agility in a stable platform that also looks great in a never before modeled color scheme. Bring something unique to your RC airfield!

Freewing's 80mm F-5 Tiger II is the perfect size for easy transport without the need for disassembly. For more versatile transportation or compact storage options, the rigid, carbon fiber reinforced wings are removable with screws, as are the unique vertical stabilizers, and full flying horizontal stabilizers. Metal gear servos on the full flying horizontal stabilizers ensure positive control, and pre-installed flaps help to slow down landings. Designed for operation on pavement or very short grass, the F-5 features aluminum trailing link struts all around for durability, and the shock absorbing struts dampen hard landings to reduce bouncing. Plastic main gear doors and a spring-hinged full coverage nose gear door minimize drag and maximize speed.

For pilots who have flown other aircraft in Freewing's 80mm Jet Series, the F-5 Tiger II is stable like the F-86 Sabre, and is slightly slower than the Mirage 2000 with a less axial roll rate, making the F-5 an ideal first 80mm jet. The three tone desert camouflage color scheme is very easy to see against a blue sky, and the included missiles aid in visibility. The F-5 is optimized to fly our Admiral 6s 4000mAh lipo battery with an EC5 connector, but it can also accommodate the Admiral 4500mAh or 5000mAh. This ARF version of the F-5 allows you to install a power system and servos of your choice for maximum aircraft customization. The Freewing 80mm F-5 Tiger II is recommended for Intermediate to Advanced pilots only.

Note: This is a ARF version which does not include servos, EDF fan, motor or ESC. The ARF box may include a plastic 6 bladed shroud, but this shroud is not compatible with the 1750kv outrunner motor. We recommend that either the plastic shroud be used as a measurement tool to adapt aftermarket shrouds to fit the KIT's shroud space, or the plastic shroud be discarded. Do not attempt to use it on 6 Cell LiPo. It will fail, since it was only designed for a 4 Cell LiPo.
