Freewing 6S Hawk T1 “Red Arrow” 70mm EDF Jet - PNP
6S Hawk T1 “Red Arrow” 70mm EDF Jet - PNP from Freewing - FJ21411P
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, and gives sport jet handling similar to the Avanti and Stinger 90. Since the T-45 is a modified version of the BAe Hawk, we scaled down our Freewing 90mm T-45 Hawk from 2015 then reworked it to be simpler, faster, and with a lighter wing loading with superior all around handling.
With your supplied 6Ss 2700mAh-4000mAh LiPo battery, the 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.
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.

Best EDF ever
This is the best EDF I've ever had. It flys great at half throttle then you have a lot of reserve power. It is also the most durable plane I have ever had. The standard retracts are near bulletproof, kinda like a Timex watch (that's for the old guys who understand that statement.) In my fifty years of RC, this is the best model.
THE BAe "Red Arrow" Hawk
Looks great, flies great and plenty of power for vertical and fast! The maiden was a bit of a challenge. It needed some up elevator trim and a bit more aileron throw but flies really great after the adjustments.
Freewing Bae Hawk T1
Received Quickly and in excellent condition. Very easy to build - screws together - every thing fit well and test flew Yesterday with settings as described , prefect Maiden flight. Another !st by Freewing, I Have several of Motions edf's Great products and Service. Rich M.
I just maidened my Hawk and it performed very well! I flew it with a 6s 4500mah 40C battery and I got a solid 4 minutes of mixed flying out of it easily. Definitely looks good in the air and sounds great, as well :)
The only part of the assembly was the wing saddle it didn't fit properly at the trailing edge. Take off was easy and the landing you must touch the mains first or it will bounce. Landings make sure you land on the mains first also. This jet will slow right down to make landings easy put down the flaps and come in with a little power.
Freewing T1-A 70mm Hawk
Amazingly smooth Jet! I’ve logged 7 flights on it so far and loving it, NO GLUE required for assembly, I fly it with a venom 6s 5000mah 30c and a lectron 6s 5200mah 50c, I set my timer @ 3:30 and land it with 57% still on the packs, the factory installed lights are bright and easy to see. Lots of **** for your buck with this bird, a no brainer if you’re looking for a nice powerful EDF that flys stable at all speeds and lands quite nicely to, fits in the trunk of my mid sized car easily, not a beginner jet but certainly great for intermediate to advanced pilots.
Very good, but not without it's minor problems
Flies great. Performs best on a 6s 5000, 50c. Be careful with the c of g with this heavy battery About to receive the upgraded gear, which I hope will eliminate the tendancy to bounce on anything but the perfect touch down, with the stock gears.That is on a hard runway Good value and a pleasure in the air.
This is one of the easiest planes to assemble that I have ever had. Took a little over an hour from the box to the field. And let me tell you it flies awesome.
It flies almost as nice as my Avanti!!!!! This little bird rips, it is stable and slows down to a decent pace for landing if you dial in some flaps, I like the scale look but the sport jet flying characteristics. This plane does everything well, not exceptional but pretty darn good and it is pretty snappy. I fly with Revo 5000mah 70c graphene HV lipos and I feel it's probably in the 115mph range, the difference between an average pack and my good high voltage pack's is at least 10-20mph so beware... My only issue is visibility, I had a yak 130 and didn't have the same orientation/visibility problems but that's just me and my 51 year old eye's, I cannot fly with sunglasses on and fly this bird.... It will **** up grass clippings because of the cheater vents and is marginal at best to taxi on grass. This is alot of **** for the buck, get one you won't be disappointed.
