Freewing Mig-21 Silver 80mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing Mig-21 Silver 80mm EDF Jet - PNP - FJ21011P
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.

Good plane to fly on a calm day
just received the kit just started working on it will do an review and make notes as I put the kit together. So far received kit in excellent condition. No damaged parts. Once again will do an review of the kit.
Mig 21 PNP
Ok, so far - all the bits there! Waiting for an EC5 adaptor to arrive
Very nice, glad I bought it and it flies really good, wanted to see why it had a 4.9 star rating and I found out when I got mine in the air. Kit was very nice, no parts issue or electronic issue, so that was a blessing. If you like shiny jets then this one is for you, a little to silver for my liking so I toned her down with some 400 grit sandpaper and a coat of clear flat finish, looks weathered now.
Perfect flyer, the combination of delta wing and conventional tail make high alfa maneuvring easy, all kind of aerobatics, even in vertical is sheer fun!
Overall quality good as always with Freewing. Only complaint are the plastic linkages that connects to the rudder horns which could be of better quality. Freewing’s planes use to fly great, and I hope this one will as well when I test it the coming spring.
