Dominate the skies with Freewing’s 1/9 scale MiG-21! First designed in 1953, the MiG-21 is widely renowned as a classic Cold War era brute and holds the distinction of being the most produced supersonic jet fighter in the world. More than 11,000 MiG-21s of different variations have flown for over 60 countries over a period of more than 60 years. In fact, the unmistakable outline of the MiG-21 can still be seen today in the skies of over 15 countries that still operate this historic warplane. The MiG-21 has earned its place in aviation history as a versatile workhorse and venerable foe. Own the first foam electric MiG-21 on the market, and add a little spice to your RC model hangar!
The Freewing MiG-21’s impressive 1730mm length puts the aircraft into a category of its own. Longer than most 90mm class Freewing jets but with the lower wing loading of the smaller 80mm class Freewing jets, the Freewing MiG-21 is the perfect balance between size, weight, performance, and cost. Its removable wings, horizontal stabilizer, and vertical stabilizer make transport very easy. Even the nose cone and pitot tube are removable! Freewing has recreated many scale details of the MiG-21 “MF” variant, and the PNP version of the aircraft is powered by an 80mm 12-blade EDF and an all-new 3530-1800KV out-runner motor and 100A ESC. This power system’s thrust can sustain a 40 degree slow high alpha maneuver that is impossible with other jets in the 80mm and 90mm classes. Newly designed metal gear digital servos control the ailerons, flaps, elevators, and rudder, and an integrated circuit board simplifies wiring in the large battery bay. Magnetic fuel tanks and the iconic “blisters” throughout the fuselage help complete the look and feel of the menacing MiG-21. Although an 80mm class aircraft, the Freewing MiG-21 features the larger retractable landing gear of a 90mm class aircraft. Durable aluminum trailing link struts and tall foam rubber wheels allow operation on short grass fields.
The Freewing MiG-21 is suitable for intermediate and advanced pilots with EDF flying experience. The model’s strong thrust and flaps shortens the takeoff distance to less than 100 feet. Optimized design allows the Freewing MiG-21 to fly stably at both fast and slow speeds. The delta wing and swept tail give the aircraft crisp responsiveness in high rates but gentle handling in low rate.
The battery bay is generously sized to fit a 6s battery from 4000mAh to 6000mAh in size. We recommend the Admiral 6s 4000mAh 60c or Admiral 5000mAh 50c for optimal performance. The battery bay was also designed to accommodate an optional Freewing Gyro E51 or Hobby Eagle A3-L, sold separately, to further supplement the stable flying characteristics of the Freewing MiG-21. Execute the thrill of a 40 degree slow pass with ease!
Freewing presents its MiG-21 in two color schemes. The classic “Soviet Silver” scheme includes decals from four countries inside the box to allow pilots to customize their model aircraft. A “High Contrast” scheme is also available that features the blue/white/grey color scheme of the MiG-21-93 variant for enhanced visibility in the sky. Or, paint your own custom color scheme and share it with your fellow RC pilots on Hobbysquawk.com.

Im very happy with my new plane
I bought this kit, ARF+, for a turbine conversion to continue the fun I'm having with also converted T-45. this project will have to weights since the K30 with ancillary weights more than the EDF & batts.. while there is plenty of room in there, the concern is the LG.
The Package arrived undamaged, and was fun assembling. Everything worked perfectly.Maiden flight was a little twitchy till I reduced throws and added Expo. Now fly's great.
Turbine Mig 21
What a great plane. Converted to turbine (Jetcat p20), own design single wall tail pipe, could use a little more thrust but it's a winner as is. This was my first effort and I am going to build a second one with more fuel capacity and different paint scheme. Keep up the great work Freewing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsxZu1nLjUs
My second edf
I bought an Freewing F-86 at the Perry Ga expo like it so much decided to try the M-21 and it was a blast my second EDF after the Saber got the high contrast version first then the silver one I now have 78 flights on the first one and 15 on the silver one without the first problem. Upgraded all three to the bigger engine due to the fact my runway is grass and they takeoff much shorter distance now. Waiting for my F-4 to get here now can’t wait to get it. Freewing is a great product reasonably priced.
All i can say is that this plane is very stable and lands very nice;y with no issue with bouncing. Its slow speed handling is very good too. In the turns you have to be on the elevator though because she will sink in a bank just like the real mig-21 other than that I would recommend this plane.
So so great looks amazing
Excellent looks, good flying characteristics.
Excellent looks, good flying characteristics. Freewing is great. I expect to buy many more. Was delivered quickly with no damage. Motion is absolutely HE BEST. Don't change a thing.
