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.

i own quit a few EDF's and the Freewing BAe hawk by far is the best airplane i have ever purchased!!! if you dont have this plane in your R/C hanger you are missing out. easy to put together is just stunning to look at and best yet flies like its on rails!! i installed the ar636 sport receiver and went on spectrums site and down loaded the program for the eflite viper installed it on the receiver and it works like a dream!!!! love it!!!!!
I got this for Christmas and just started the assembly a couple of days ago. Disappointed that the LG cycled twice then quit working. Because it has been more than 30 days since I bought it there is no warranty coverage. I had to order a new LG. I disassembled the broken part to see if it was something I could fix...no luck, it was a broken EOT switch (tiny part). So now I wait, disappointed.
I love this plane. I bough the ARF plus version and installed a 70mm fan system from my ME-262. This system uses a 2150kv motor so it pulls less amps and makes a little less power. At full throttle I measured the amp draw to be 50 amps and the power at 1000 watts. I was concerned whether the plane would perform well enough....yes, it does. Flys fast and smooth on 70% throttle for most maneuvers and only needs full smash for going vertical. The jet assembles quickly and easily with no noted issues. Takeoffs from a dirt/grass runway require full throttle, half flaps, and full up elevator to rotate. Once climbing and after retracting the gear and flaps the jet performs just as you would expect the full size one to do. I found the roll rate to be more sensitive than I prefer, even on low rates. I reduced the throws even more on low and now it is much better....for me. One down side to a relatively small, fast jet is keeping it oriented with my old eyes and reflexes. I was flying my first jet on a gray day, inverted, at a distance, and in a left banked turn when I completely lost orientation. The plane ended up in a vertical dive and I only needed another 30 feet of altitude to recover, which unfortunately I didn't have. I enjoyed the plane so much I bought a second one and I'm being a bit more careful about how I fly it. I set my flight timer to 4:30 and land with the 6S 5000mah battery at 30% charge.
Wings did not fit light starboard not working paint had issues blue box ng battery connector not soldered correctly Imof if I didn't know any better I'd think it was an Eflite plane Anyhow I painted sanded rewired and fixed it but it's disconcerting that after many great planes I got a lemon that's 25 wins and one loss Somebody at the factory needs a talking too Still support motion RC And no I didn't call it's a cheap airplane I'll fly like I stole I give it till about July
The hawk is in attractive Airplane and a good flyer with full flaps it slows down very nicely for landing. The only thing wrong with mine is all of the wheels on it were egg shaped. After I replaced all of them with round wheels it has been a pleasure.
I've been flying scale warbirds the past few years, so last October I wanted to try an EDF jet. So after a friend showed me his, I just had to have one. I didn't get mine from Motion RC since I got a good deal from a local seller. The build was quick and easy and I set everything up by the book. Since I got mine in a bundle with the upgraded landing gear, I didn't even bother to try the stock gear. I'm flying mine with a 6S 4000mah 35-70C battery, but there is enough room to fit even larger batteries. I tried flying it with a 6S 5000mah 75C which weighs about 920g, space is not an issue and it can definitely carry the extra weight. The maiden flight was pretty uneventful, hardly any trimming was needed. The recommended throws are good, but I increased mine slightly to better fit my taste. I've never had a plane fly this precise before, I'm very happy with it. However, I would definitely recommend checking the landing gear from time to time. Mine had a few grub screws come loose which caused the plane to steer on its own.
