64mm Freewing Lippisch P.15 - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ11011P

The Wright Brothers, Kelly Johnson, Willy Messerschmitt, Igor Sikorsky, R.J. Mitchell, Burt Rutan.  Not every contributor to aviation history has enjoyed the same notoriety as these innovators, but Motion RC and Freewing are proud to celebrate the engineer Alexander Lippisch, by producing the world’s first and only Lippisch P.15 flying wing concept jet!  Envisioned by Lippisch in 1944 as a jet powered version of his innovative rocket propelled Me-163 Komet, the P.15 would have taken the Komet concept even further, utilizing a blend of all-new and reused parts from the He-162 and Bf-109.  Repurposing the Bf-109’s landing gear allowed the P.15 to take off and land conventionally, compared to the rocket sled and skid landed Me-163.  Optimized for affordability and easy flight behavior, our intent in developing Freewing’s 64mm ParkJet series also seeks to illuminate rare and overlooked aircraft, and the P.15 is our first in this effort!  Join us in celebrating Alexander Lippisch and his innovative P.15 flying wing!

The Freewing 64mm P.15 continues the ParkJet series following the incredibly popular F-8 Crusader and F-105 Thunderchief.  After two American fighter jets, we’re changing things up to spotlight the excellent characteristics of an Axis-designed flying wing from the Second World War.  Compared to the F-8 and F-105, the P.15 is even more stable, more potentially acrobatic, and more efficient.  In ideal conditions, its low wing loading can allow for 50% longer flight times on the same battery with throttle management.  Aside from having a very low stall speed which will appeal to beginner pilots looking to fly slower and learn to fly an EDF, the P.15 also has lots of high speed potential for advanced pilots who are more comfortable with lighting fast rolls, snaps, and tumbles!  The cockpit has even been designed to accommodate a micro FPV camera, or for recording your flight with a standalone camera such as the RunCam or Mobius.  We are thrilled with the wide flight envelope of this model and its perfect marriage balancing fidelity to a scale jet’s appearance and an RC flying wing’s all-around “easy factor”.

For novice pilots wanting to learn how an EDF jet handles versus a propeller driven model aircraft of a similar size, the Freewing 64mm P.15 makes an ideal first hand launch EDF.  Assembly is straightforward, and uses only two servos to minimize weight, complexity, and cost.  Like the F-8 Crusader and F-105D Thunderchief, the Lippisch P.15 is is configured to be flown using a radio that supports Elevon mixing.  The battery bay can also accommodate a small gyro for additional stabilization.  We recommend the manual’s Low Rate throws for your maiden flight.  The roll rate can be very quick on High Rate, so the contrast between the light gray underside and the dark green camouflage upperside helps with orientation!

Powered by an efficient 64mm 5 blade EDF fan unit, 30A ESC and 2627-4500kv brushless outrunner motor, the Freewing 64mm P.15 Thunderchief reaches a top speed of 116kph/72mph using a single inexpensive Admiral 3S 1000 mAh - 2200 mAh lipo battery with XT60 connector.  While designed with simplified flight control surfaces and intended for hand launches and belly landing on grass runways, an optional landing gear set is sold separately for steerable operation on paved runways.

The Lippisch P.15 has never been modeled in foam PNP before, and we know you’ll be as pleased as we are with how this model flies.  Own this rare model today!

Pure fun!!!

I really enjoy my lippish p.15. It has a vast flight envelope and is very solid in all speeds of flight. This is my second lippish and I have modded nav lights on it, it flys so well that I take her up at all hours of the night. Very predictable, yet super agile. A must for any r/c pilot who likes to have some good fun, whether its 1 foot up or 50, 10 mph or full throttle 100mph it's a blast!

Must have

Leuke kleine snelle jet. Ik vlieg deze met een 3s 1800. 5minuten volle gas is geen probleem. Denk er wel aan dat zoals ze in het filmpje zeggen, de low rates zijn meer dan genoeg. Zeker bij het opgooien. Ideaal om tussen door even te scheuren of om in de auto te gooien om snel een vluchtje te maken.

Toss and Boss with the Lippisch!

The plane flies great and is super fast. Only drawback is that it can get out of sight in seconds. I set the roll rates at 20% which works good. This plane is an absolute blast to fly!

A great airplane once in the air

This is my first EDF. It can handle high and low speeds equally well. Climb up high and you can fly it like a glider, or stay low at full throttle and it can keep up with some of the bigger jets. 3 minute flights on a 1300 3S, can be up to 5 if you glide around. If you ever do nose in just put it in some boiling water and it's good as new.

Great little airplane

Once you get the CG in the proper place and all the trims set up, it is a marvelous little flier. I used a lemon receiver with the built in stabilizer. By doing this the plane flies as well at a slow speed as it does at full throttle. This is one of the best bangs for the cost.

Freewing Lippisch P.15 64mm EDF Jet - PNP review

Love it but wish you would offer an optional extra set of longer wings so it would be more useful in light winds on the slope. Nothing complicated, the same root and tip cards but another four or so more inches length each side would do just fine.

Hand launching

I have read that a few people have been having trouble hand launching the P 15. I have overcome this problem by mixing throttle with elevator and assigning it to a switch. I have it mixed so that at full throttle for launch elevons go up . I have the flap switch on my Tactic radio assigned to that mix. Once the bird is up and away I hit the switch and the elevons go back to their normal position.
