Freewing F9F Panther 64mm EDF Jet - PNP
64mm Freewing F9F Panther EDF Jet - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ10311P
Are you looking for your first EDF jet or are you a more advanced pilot looking for a new EDF? Look no further. While great for people new to EDF jets, The Freewing F9F Panther is fast and agile enough for experienced pilots too. The Freewing F9F is one of our favorite jets. While this F9F Panther EDF is not for beginner flyers, it is perfect for the intermediate flyer looking for their first EDF jet. There is not an easier EDF jet to fly.
Unlike many EDF jets, the Freewing F9F actually floats for an extended period of time without throttle (assuming a correct CG). The F9F is powerful enough to loop and has a fantastic roll rate. We recommend hand launching and belly landing in the grass for pilots new to EDF jets. The F9F is built from durable EPO foam and uses nylon hinges. While a 1600 mAh LiPo is recommended, a 2200 mAh battery can be used by more experienced pilots with minor modification to the battery compartment. We highly recommend a high wing trainer for beginners and proficiency with at least one low wing plane before attempting to fly an EDF jet.

Flew great hard to hand launch
Although the tail feathers didn't quite fit right to the fuse. the overall quality of the plane is good and I can't wait to fly and give a further review
EDF Panther Jet
I have only flown plane a few times. It flies well, adequate power on take offs and belly lands nicely on grass. Not sure about lack of spare between left and right side main wing halves which are glued to fuselage .I hope the glue holds. For the money I am pleased with the aircraft.
Mile high performance.!
What a little jewell. I run the stock 3s setup on 4s 1600 at 5500' & its AWESOME! The extra $ for the fixed gear is a bargain. The wheels are too big tho.. I fly from a smooth runway so I can use small wheels. You can hardly see them. I like small airplanes & the bright colors provide great visibility. 5 stars.
More ARF than PNP, but still a great value
Nice looking EDF. Took me about 5-6 hours to build with the added landing gear. Carving out space for the steerable nose wheel was a bit of a challenge, but we got ‘er done... make sure you have a fresh razor blade for your Xacto, because you’ll need it. Flown twice, and I’m pleased with the performance thus far.
My hubby loved this plane I purchased for an early Christmas present.
Ok but not a strong model
Not a beginners plane and no wing struts
Great Starter EDF
Love this plane! This is my first foray into EDFs, and now I'm hooked. Assembly was easy, with clear instructions that had good pictures. I believe I got a faulty ESC, because the motor randomly dies while in flight and the whole aircraft would lose power completely if I did not use a dedicated receiver battery. It took multiple wing-removing crashes before I figured out exactly what was going on and used a second battery to preserve control of the aircraft while gliding. Once I got it flying semi-correctly, it was truly wonderful. Even without artificial stabilization, this is an extremely smooth-flying and stable jet. It carries speed extremely well, and is just a joy to see in the air. Hand-launching is the way to go with this plane. The landing gear is very sturdy, but the nose gear servo gets in the way of getting the battery far enough forward to get the CG perfect. It carries so much speed on landing that you'd also need an extremely long surface to utilize the landing gear. Fantastic airplane to get started with EDF jets.
Experience needed to build
You must know how to mix apoxy (or) glue all wings have to be glued its a little difficult and be shire everything is strate father then that its a good looking plane
