Freewing F-86 Sabre Jolley Roger 64mm EDF Jet - PNP
64mm Freewing F-86 Sabre "Jolley Roger" - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ10121P
The Freewing F-86 Sabre is truly one of the best values in radio control EDF jets. Affordable, built like a tank, and a blast to fly, the Freewing F-86 will not disappoint. It has plenty of speed and great flight characteristics right out of the box. We find ourselves reaching for the Freewing F-86 EDF very frequently even though we have hundreds of planes to choose from. This F-86 has plenty of power available so aerobatic moves like loops, rolls, and inverted flight can be performed with ease. The ailerons have great authority so the plane has a fantastic roll rate. The Freewing 64mm EDF jets are some of the most entertaining jets out there. The Freewing F-86 is built from durable EPO foam and uses nylon hinges on the control surfaces for increased strength and duty cycles. The durable airframe is perfect for hand launching and belly landing on grass surfaces.

This plane isn't hard to fly at all, that said, it is a little bit squirrely for a first edf. I happened to crash mine really bad because of that. I took it back glued everything back to its place, and it was flying again. Also the biggest problem in my opinion is the landing gear, it is pretty **** not gonna lie, every time i have landed this plane they all break off, but its not a big deal because i paid 98 bucks for this thing. It is also really quick for a 3s jet quite agile. The second issue in my opinion is your going to be giving it the beans the entire flights. I use a 3s 2200 it is a little nose heavy but it works, eventually i got the cg right and when its below full throttle it just falls out of the sky which kinda sucks for a foamy jet. Now lets talk about the pros, the power is really good not gonna say anymore cuz i don't need to. It turns really nice not losing a lot of speed.It carry's its inertia for a while before it starts to fall out of the sky. it isn't hard to fix. if your at a flying field, you will have no problems with a buddy box. How can you improve this plane... Honestly use 1800 battery's they are perfectly fine and aren't as heavy when you land and it takes off quicker, and to fix the squirrelyness just add a gyro. This isn't my favorite 64mm edf but its my favorite warbird 64mm edf it is a great 1st jet with a gyro.
Amazing plane, but it's NOT for beginners. Just a fair warning for any people new to the hobby, this is NOT a beginner plane(made that mistake myself).
Hi I found model superb It fly's so well ,I fly it on a 2200 3cel lipo set right forward little nose heavy it is just right it is also very easy to hand launch under arm I would recommend this model
Flys good, Lands Slow
Good quality, parts fit well, fun
To increase thrust i cut and beveled out the approx 1" square "hatch covers" just aft of the jolly roger decals. Big thrust improvement. Also be very tidy in the internal routing for airflow. Added flaperons and a switch to increase elevator trim up, just for launch. Hand launches went from really iffy to very easy. I added some extra rudder surface, much improved yaw stability in winds. The nose is bigger than scale. This model does tend to "tuck in" and roll over on aggressive turns. Experimenting with differential aileron and a working rudder for that. Take the tanks off or grass landings will cause greif. Keep the mount pylons on to make underwing skids to protect servos. Grass landings then become a non-issue. Overall, after these mods, it flies well on a 3s 1500 batt.
Love the model, I've been wanting an F-86 for years.
I have had this for a while and just started flying it this summer. Its a little under-powered for hand launching but I found it launches easier with a 1600mah battery than the 1800mah. I will assume that is due to weight differences in the battery and the fact that it is a fairly small plane so I guess a little extra weight in the nose makes it a more difficult to launch, even with a slight breeze. However, I found if you launch it HARD, like a football up at about 40 degrees inclination it should not be a problem. Once in the air, this is a blast, using more or less recommended travel rates for ailerons and elevators and adding about 30% expo on both will make it less twitchy and react more like the real plane for maneuvers. Durability is excellent for this plane and even after predominantly failed hand launches and one actual crash during a full power dive out of a high banked turn and skimming along the ground about 1 foot above the grass, I caught a cross wind and a wing dipped and it cartwheeled at full speed. The battery flew out of the plane and there was a little crumple on the nose, but there already was that and its reinforced with duct tape so no problem. Just steam the nose a bit and re-tape it and its good to go for next week. Drop tanks have not survived a single flight. I have replaced them 3 times and they simply rip off at the slightest impact. I have them on again, but next time they are not being replaced. Besides it flies really nice without them. All in all, a very fun, quick and easy way to get into EDF jets for little money and as I'm using this as my "jet trainer" plane, I can tell you its definitely durable. I also just purchased the 64mm MIG-15 and I now have 4 Freewing jets that were less than $140.00 and they are the most fun aircraft I own, and due to the low cost, the least stressful to fly, because I'm not at all worried about what's going to happen if I crash. I own over 60 rc's of various types and these are the only vehicles that I can say that about. Only gave 4 stars because of the difficulty in self hand launching, but I love this plane!
