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.

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
T1 BAe Hawk 70mm EDF
I am totally blown away with my new jet. Motion RC never disappoints!
Another great value !
Having other 70mm edf's like the F-35, Yak-130 and F-16 V2 I wasn't exactly sure how the new BAe Hawk would perform in comparison. Pilot Ryan and Capt. Mike had given her a big thumbs up. All I can say is " Awesome !" I already had a spare 2200kv 14b 70mm edf motor/fan combo and a 125 amp esc looking for a new home. They were welcomed with open arms to the Hawk. Motion never disappoints . From the time ordered on a Monday to the time I maidened on Friday still amazes me. That's 4 days folks. Pick Pack, Ship, Unopen, Build,Program and fly. This airplane goes together remarkably fast. There may be 12 screws. That's it ! Oh it gets better. The maiden went exceptionally well. I fly off a short grass field. She rotated in about 80 ft. Flew her with an Admiral 5000 mah 50C . And what a blast to fly. And get this. I didn't even need one click of trim. Speedwize, please keep it a secret but she'll keep up with the Avanti S all day long. The flaps slow her down nicely for landing. She glides in for a smooth bounce free touchdown. I didn't buy the upgraded LG yet. Like the Yak-130, I'll fly with the chicken legs until I wear them out. Anyway, you don't notice them when you're flying. On the fence? Buy this plane ! She's a keeper ! Hawk
This jet was in perfect condition the build was easy the only part i didnt like it was a little tough to get the rods in the control horns. Also im not a big fan of the control box its so tight to get the leads in but not a big deal. Now for the good part the jet looks fantastic a little bigger than the yack 130. The lights are amazing it was a big hit at my flying field a head turner. This jet flys amazing fast and slow and the vertical climbouts are amazing!! Im using turnigy 3300mah 60c packs and its a great combination for me. Guys by this jet you will be happy you did.
