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.

Hi,i get this beautiful airplane from you,but the problem is the tax.So it will be the same price as Norway.I wondering if you can write down the value ot the product if i bay something else from you? Regards Alf Rake
I bought this a few months ago on the "pre release" at the time the only way to purchase it was the PNP version. As is normal for me I removed the power setup and installed my own TP Power 70mm 14 blade 2800kv fan unit with a Castle Edge 130. Yes I know this setup is more than the entire plane was but I like extreme power. I am getting just south of 3000 watts with this setup with an all up weight of 5.5lbs with the 5000mah 6s Admiral battery pack. I also bought the upgraded landing gear struts as I fly off of grass. WELLLL this plane is awesome it launches off the runway in about 50' and obviously you can climb out and never stop going. I just kind of putted around at 1/2 throttle for most of the flight and it still is moving right along. I am going to put my GPS on it on subsequent flights to get full speed results. This plane is smooth as silk and is ultra stable even with a bit of wind. I am not using any stablization just a standard AR8000 receiver. The only thing I need to work on is the landings they do tend to bounce a bit. For the money this is an awesome and fun plane. I landed at 3 minutes as I do for the first flights on all my EDF jets. I still had 61% charge remaining so I should be able to get 5 minutes with ease.
Beautiful BAE Hawk
Easy assembly --flew great--fast. Lost the right flap on the second flight--just blew off --didn't know what came off till after the crash. Hawk was destroyed along with the battery--but if you need a right flap--I've got one with hinges installed--just came off wing clean--no glue-- Disappointed
ESC Died on Maiden
Model went together well and looked very good with the upgraded gear that I bought as well. Unfortunately, I had the ESC die on me on my maiden and the Rx lost all power and the model hit the ground hard right after takeoff. VERY bummed to do so much damage to such a good looking model all from an ESC failure.
Freewing BAE Hawk 6S PNP
First four flights yesterday. Flew great, super powerful, impressive vertical ability, easy knife edge, sounds wonderful. Put 4000 size batteries pretty far back so strap crosses middle of battery. Overshot first landing, it will sail for a while at idle power. Elevator takes a feathery touch for landing like most jets. By the fourth landing I was able to grease it in a cross wind with a little wheelie action. Hit 130 mph on a diving pass.
I have several planes from Motion RC and this my favorite! It has everything, from high performance maneuvers to slow flight and totally easy power off landings. I would buy another in a second! I highly recommend this plane to all levels.
Strut upgrade installation
I have just received the Freewing BAe Hawk packaged very well and all in great condition. I have just installed the upgraded struts that I purchased with the model and can report that the front strut can be replaced without removing the red plastic cover.
First flight was smooth and fast, really enjoy this plane.
So I have not flow this yet and I will give a review update when it finally gets warmer again here in Indiana. I opted to replace the stock power setup with a TP Power 70mm 2600kv combination as well as a Castle Edge 100 ESC. This setup gives a bit over 2400 watts so I have to watch it as that is right on the edge of the ESC's limits. The build was straight forward and easy. I bought the upgraded struts and I highly highly recommend the upgrade. The stock setup reminds me of the landing gear on my first trainer. I suppose if I had any negative to say it would be in regards to the struts. Freewing makes such awesome planes and on the other models the landing gear is solid. Why be so skimpy on such a nice plane. I also removed the module that was in it and plugged straight into my receiver. I needed 3 y cables of my own but I feel much better having that out of the mix. I love the looks of this plane and will be flying it on a 6s 5000 pack.
