Freewing 6S Hawk T1 “Red Arrow” 70mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS
6S Hawk T1 “Red Arrow” 70mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS from Freewing - FJ21411A+
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.
Perhaps the most versatile British advanced trainer jet in the world, the BAe Hawk has been in service for over 40 years. Operated at its peak by 18 countries in various trainer and light combat roles, the Hawk T1 variant was also popularized by the Red Arrows display team, whose expert piloting demonstrations have amazed audiences worldwide for generations.
Freewing and Motion RC are proud to present this well-loved aircraft as a 70mm EDF powered electric flying model. The Freewing 70mm Hawk T1 features a powerful 12 bladed EDF power system for satisfying speed, vertical performance, and realistic sound (PNP version only).
With your supplied 6Ss 2700mAh-4000mAh LiPo battery, the recommended 6S power system can achieve a top speed of approximately 160kph / 100mph. Retractable landing gear, flaps, and a wide gear stance make the aircraft well suited for beginner to intermediate jet pilots flying off of pavement or very well manicured grass runways. An optional suspension strut set is available if more shock absorption is desired. A large battery bay provides easy access to your battery, receiver, and an optional gyro stabilizer.
To enhance visibility, the Freewing 70mm Hawk T1 also features the signature bright white nose light of the real aircraft, and sports bright red and green wingtip lights as well. This is the only Freewing 70mm Class aircraft to include pre-installed lighting!
Building upon the popularity of the Freewing 70mm F-16, the Freewing 70mm Hawk T1 adds the new feature of LED lighting and the benefit of a wider wing and wider gear stance than the F-16. Overall, the Hawk makes a perfect “first 70mm EDF”, and its common size 6S 4000mAh battery can be used in many other aircraft. Stable and predictable at both slow and high speeds, the Freewing Hawk T1 cruises confidently at 50% throttle, giving pilots time to enjoy the profile of this iconic jet as it flies by. We also love this Hawk because it flies like a smaller Freewing Avanti –one of the world’s most popular foam EDFs! With a similar planform as the Avanti, proficient pilots can push the Hawk to perform many acrobatic maneuvers with precision and confidence. We have found the Freewing Hawk T1 to be “a sport jet that looks like a scale jet”!
Celebrating the Red Arrows Demonstration Team’s approach to 40 years of service using their BAe Hawk T1s, the Freewing Hawk T1 is finished in one of the iconic Red Arrows liveries with the included decal set.
For a limited time, an identical 6S PNP version painted in “Base Gray”! In response to overwhelming requests for more customizable models, Freewing and Motion RC are offering this “Base Gray” model as the perfect foundation for your own decals and/or custom paint job. The foam surface is prepared and primered the same as our other aircraft, then factory painted with the same durable paint you’re familiar with on other Freewing EDF jets. Acrylic hobby-grade paints can be applied directly to this prepared surface for a better bond than if applied directly to bare foam. Callie at www.callie-graphics.com has also prepared several optional decal sets depicting a range of Hawks in colors other than the iconic Red Arrows.
It is our hope that as you enjoy the Freewing 70mm Hawk T1, you will spread the love of flight and of this venerable aircraft’s contributions to aviation history.

So far so good!
Plane assembled very quickly and easily. Looks fantastic and has nice details. All control surfaces functioning properly. Installed a 70 mm FMS fan I had surplus which fit without need for modifications. Can’t give full 5 stars only because I haven’t maidened yet but purchased based on positive reviews so hoping for good flight characteristics.
Great looking jet
Very nice jet and fast
BAE Hawk/T-45 Transformation
I currently enjoy flying my Hawk T1. This ARF was purchased so that I could customize her into a T-45 Livery without buying a full up PNP version. I had very little difficulty covering the original Hawk paint and decals using gloss white Rustoleum Ultra Cover.
Freewing 6S Hawk T1 "Red Arrow" 70mm EDF Jet - ARF Plus
I own 10 Freewing jets now, and this one absolutely knocks it out of the park. Incredible build quality, performance, and flight characteristics on this Hawk. Easily one of the best flying (speed/acceleration/climb rate/stability) of any 70mm I own or have flown. MotionRC and Freewing have developed the top of the line in 70mm EDFs with this jet. Love it.
I forward this message with 37 years of RC flying experience. The Freewing models are excellent..........my second one. The FMS aireplanes, although they are nice looking, are nothing but trouble. Neither I nor anyone in my club will even think of buying one again. My first and last one, a 1700 mm P-47 survived less than 5 flights. .......went in nose first after an elevator separated from the stabilizer. I had already replaced two landing gear units, one because one locked up before it left the workbench and then both wheels came off on the first flight and the axle dug in and broke mounting tab. Both retainer rings were either completely missing or not installed properly. It is great doing business with you folks and being able to reach someone on the chat line to get tech. info.
The Hawk flies great! After I ground rolled on the maiden and broke off the pitot tube (my fault.. rotated too soon) it has a couple dozen safe flights on it. The sound is amazing and the 6s 4000 battery balances it out perfectly. It also flies slightly longer than my other edf's that use the same battery. I'd say it's a good second or third edf to get for those transferring over from props. A great first edf is the Rebel, in my opinion. Being a sport model the designers have more freedom to make it an easier model to fly.
I had a 70mm FMS edf unit so I went to the motion rc site and quickly found a perfect match. This kit is so user friendly With retracts installed all servos installed screw on wing and tail surfaces
