Great plane inexpensive,flys good.
This is my second review of this model and I can say it flies great. It has plenty of power to spare. I have been using a 6000mah battery slid as far forward as possible with a small amount of weight added in the nose. The maiden flight was a bit tail heavy, but after about 15 clicks of down elevator it flew great. With this model always keep up some speed when turning on final. Landing is nice with about 75% to 100% flaps and a little power untill you reach the runway then cut power. I did re-enforce the nose with 5mm carbonfiber rods to prevent the nose from breaking off. Check out you tube video's on how to do the modification. Nice jet when flying . Very realistic looking paint sceme.
nice plane to fly. the battery compartment could be bigger. modified the compartment to hold 2 5S 4000mhs. battery's so far so good
Help Avoid This
I love the ME-262 but the nose is a bit weak. It landed in tall grass and got swiped off. I recommend reinforcing it with two to four 4mm-5mm carbon fiber rods.
Some Cautions and praise on the Freewing ME-262
First the Sulphur, then the sugar: *The Sulphur Caution #1: NOT FOR BEGINNERS. Maybe intermediate if experienced. This plane personifies the old saying “Speed is life”. It is a hot plane (can do over 100mph). Caution #2: It is a high-fidelity copy of a 1940s jet and it comes with all of the vices of the real plane. This includes being prone to tip stalls so do not get to slow with high AOA and control the wing rock. Do not try to rotate too soon. Caution #3: Critical 10mm wide CG (100-110mm aft of wing root leading edge). This is well presented in manual so no excuses (BTW, I was about less than an inch off and disaster resulted. See video link). Caution #4: The nose section/gear is prone to get knocked off if it suddenly stops, say for instance you land it in tall grass. Harden it with carbon fiber rods to strengthen the nose section (and tail). Caution #5: The camo paint scheme is surprisingly effective so be alert to your sky and background conditions. I colored my wingtips with high visibility markings and it paid off (white on top, red /yellow on bottom. **And now for the she Sugar This may be the best/nicest EDF out there. Good quality everything and very scale. Great handling once trimmed out. Solid, fast and predictable. If you get it right and can handle this bad-boy you will leave the filed with and ear-to-ear grin. Motion RC is great. I have never seen such customer service in RCs before. ***Additional note. Motion RC seems to be running out of parts for this plane and I fear it may have been discontinued. I personally bought a bunch of new stuff but there do not seem to be any replacement engine nacelles in the USA. The plane may have been discontinued. I guess I will have to buy another one. ****Recommendations: Triple check you CG. It will try to fly before the wingtips are ready so get solid speed prior to rotation or will try to roll which leads to wing rock and tip stalling. It needs a few minor clean-ups before flight which are covered in countless videos. If you want to see mine roll and crater on its maiden (AFT CG) go to my YouTube channel: maxsmodels channel or click links below. I made a few other videos to help with his model.

Freewing me 262
Everything is superb, except for one small detail. I do have some slight wavy shape in the wings. It is so slight that I think it will have no effect on the performance. It is mainly at the trailing edge around the flaps and a very small amount at the wing tips.
This plane is fantastic. It goes together quickly and easily and has an excellent finish. There was no issues with the assembly at all. I followed Motion RC and RC Informers build guide. My first two flights were pretty smooth, I'm using a HRB 6000 mAh battery. I've been keeping the flights short for now with 2:30 minute timers, landing with 3.9 in each cell. I'd did tip stall and I was able to recover. If you respect the short chord it is a blast to fly. I can't get enough, and I love the paint. I did repaint the cockpit and pilot. It is not a total scale aircraft, but it looks the part and for the money you can't go wrong. Fabulous plane.
Failure to provide airfoil throws in directions!
No where in the instruction manual are airfoil throw values provided! This is the first time I have encountered this problem. I used throws approximate to the Avanti S edf jet that I fly. I crashed on takeoff. I had never crashed an edf jet on take off before! I am in the process of repairing Me 262 but still do not know how to set up the airfoil throws for the next flight. This should not be!
Great Flying Plane, Plenty of Power!
All around great performing plane, really turns heads at the field and the sound is just Awesome! Glad I held of on this one and got the 12blade version. I am flying this with a 6000Mah Graphene battery, this batt gives me a solid 5 minutes with 1 or two go-rounds if needed. Even with the extra weight it is airborne in about 100 feet off of grass. Landing is also a breeze, using full flaps, comes in nice and slow, even with the heavier battery. There were a few issues, however, easily corrected: -Inboard Flap sections are connected by a torque rod across the engine pods. The torque rods are a bit flimsy and create uneven deployment and can be deflected too much by airflow. Will correct this by removing the rods and placing two additional servos recessed into the engine pods. -Had what the radio confirmed was a brown-out, the plane momentarily banked hard but recovered quickly. The radio is powered from the ESCs (Both, heard this was not a good thing to do), ordered a 20 amp independent ESC to eliminate the need to rely on the motor ESCs, and will install a battery backer for insurance. -Pilot is kind of goofy looking, but easily fixed. Even with the few issues mentioned above, which are easily fixed, this plane is still a tremendous value. Oh, and it is wicked fast!
