L-39 Albatros 80mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS from Freewing - FJ21511A+

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.

Combining the sport performance of the Avanti and the fidelity of scale aircraft like the A-4 and MiG-21, Freewing continues the legacy of its excellent performing 80mm EDF jets with its Freewing 80mm L-39C/Z Albatros!  Developed originally by Aero Vodochody in the 1960s in what is now the Czech Republic, the Aero L-39 Albatros excelled as a jet trainer platform with its powerful turbofan and overall reliability.  The L-39 and its successive variants continues in service throughout the world in militaries as trainers and light attack platforms, and in civil aviation including aerial demo teams and racing.

The Freewing L-39 Albatros is the largest and most capable production PNP L-39 in the world.  Optimized for high maneuverability and precision flying, the L-39 truly is a “Sport jet wearing Scale jet clothing”.  The PNP version uses a powerful 3530-1850kv brushless motor and 100A ESC to power the 12 blade 80mm EDF.  

The Freewing L-39 Albatros includes grass capable suspension landing gear, a full coverage nose door, scale wingtip lights, and easily removable tip tanks, ordnance, belly gun pod, and wings.  Only one joint is required to complete the model’s general assembly.  A plastic lined cockpit also resists deformation under sunlight, and optional 3D Printed cockpit detail upgrade parts are also sold separately.

Product Updates:

  • October 9, 2018  -  The “steering servo” port has been designed to stop responding when the gear is up.  Once you put the gear down the steering servo should work again.  If it does not work, try reversing the gear channel.

This is the most stable, predictable plane I own!

I have 38 EDFs and the L-39 is by far the most stable and predictable, that’s not to say it’s boring but rather it feels so locked in it makes me more comfortable pushing it to the limits...did I mention it’s crazy fast ;)

Great model

I already had a 80mm setup. So I opted for the arf plus. On maiden I just needed a click of left trim. And then it flew true

L-39

Very easy. 2 hours to build. Actually flys better that the Avanti (which is near perfect). Your aware of a problem with the junction box and said you would send me a new one. A phone call told me how to go around the nose gear steering with a y harness which works but I would still like it fixed right.

L-39 purchase

This is one of the finest foam models to come along. Simple build, high quality paint and components. Should be one of these in every EDF hanger.

Sinply amazing

This plane is simply amazing. No bad habits, will take off from tall (wet) grass with no effort, solid, and lands like a trainer. You can cut the edf and it will maintain speed with no issue and land full flaps without any bad tendency. Manual rates and cg are perfect. The only thing I did after several flights was to increase full flaps to 80 degrees to slow it down even more. ThiS is a must have plane.

Freewing L-39

This is a wonderful model that continues the trend of progressively better EDF jets released by Freewing. The MRC description is spot on - it is a sport jet wearing scale jet clothing. If you like the Avanti S 80mm EDF, chances are you'll like this L-39 as much or more. It's an easy build and the flies great! The scale look is very impressive on the ground and in the air. The suspension landing gear works well and removes the bounce from less than perfect landings. All airplanes should have it. I chose not to add an elevator to flap mix, fly with the drop tanks installed and an Admiral 4000 battery. Low rates make for a smooth flying experience or go to high rates for more responsiveness. If you already have a 80mm power system, this ARF Plus is an excellent value. The only problem I had was the nose gear steering and rudder both displayed some random twitching. I removed both from the blue control box and went directly to the receiver which solved the problem. The machine gun pod mentioned in the manual was not included with mine or with a friend's. Very pleased with this model.
