Freewing Mirage 2000C-5 80mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing Mirage 2000C-5 80mm EDF Jet - PNP - FJ20611P
The Dassault Mirage 2000 is a French multirole, single-engine fourth-generation jet fighter manufactured by Dassault Aviation. It was designed in the late 1970s as a lightweight fighter based on the Mirage III for the French Air Force (Arme de l'Air). The Mirage 2000 evolved into a multirole aircraft with several variants developed, with sales to a number of nations. The variants include the Mirage 2000N and 2000D strike variants, the improved Mirage 2000-5 and several export variants. Over 600 aircraft were built and it has been in service with nine nations.
We are proud to offer the Mirage 2000 as our latest model in the 12 blade 80mm EDF offering. As you've come to expect from Freewing Model, the Mirage 2000 is loaded with scale features and performance componentry. The new 80mm 12-blade EDF with metal housing powered by a powerful 1750kV motor produces nearly 6 pounds of thrust for awesome speed and incredible maneuverability. The sound produced from the 12 blade EDF will simply blow you away. While 5 and 6 blade EDF produce a high pitched whining sound, the 12 blade EDF with metal housing produces the "whoosh" and air crushing sound similar to a gas turbine jet.

Been waiting for this plane to complete my collection
Using parts and plans from the rc geek I will be making this Mirage into the Israeli KFIR He has made several key parts with 3D printed plastic replacing the nose and tail, modifying the wing and making a new vertical fin. The Scorpion nose strut with the single wheel replaces the dual tires and strut provided. Wiping the decals and paint off with Acetone and paper towels then to fill the gaps and panel lines with hobby filler sanding lightly then a few coats of polycrylic sanding lightly until it is ready to paint and decal with Callie graphics and decals the rc geek made.
130 mph Mirage
Have had the Mirage for a year now with many flights on it. Stock out of the box it was easy to get 100 mph. I then installed a 3658-1820 Freewing inrunner . Then I could easily get 110 to 115 mph. After a while I removed the landing gear and covered the wheel wells and made the plane as lite and smooth as possible. Now I could get 120 mph straight and level with no problem. Today with no wind with along shallow dive it reached 130 mph. I used an Admiral 4000 60c bat. and Eagle Tree Guardian stabilizer. I now use a launcher to get airborn and belly land on grass. Only problem with this plane is getting it to slow down for landing. To have such problems.
Poor build instructions
The delivery was quick with no damage. When I went to build the plane there were parts of the plane not covered by the instructions. The small fins for example and the antenna. The major problem was the CG. I balanced the plan to the forward end of the CG and almost didn't get it off the ground on a 600 ft runway. As mentioned by most the aileron throws were off as well. I set them to .25 inches and they were still to sensitive and compounded the problem with the CG. I was unable to bring the plane back and land it. I will get another one but will do more research on calculating the CG for a delta wing.
If you want speed.. You got it. Stock setup running a Turnigy zippy 40c 4000 6s lipo- Consistently getting 105-109mph on high speed passes. With a gyro (Eagletree A3, the $23 gyro) on VERY minimal settings, this jet flies like it's on rails. AWESOME high angle approaches on landing. Looks beautiful in the sky too! Flying it safely at ~4mins. No real bad tendencies even with the gyro off. I would not suggest flying this aircraft with full aileron roll rates..Unless you're trying to mimic a drill bit but that's your call! Plane came boxed up nicely with absolutely NO damage from shipping. Another A++++++++ product from MotionRC. Settings on my DX7s Transmitter: Aileron : (HIGH) D/R: 75 EXPO: 70 (LOW) D/R: 55 EXPO: 55 Elevator: (HIGH) D/R: 75 EXPO: 65 (LOW) D/R: 55 EXPO: 45 Rudder: NONE. I typically fly it with the elevator in my HIGH rate as listed above with aileron in LOW.
Another GREAT PLANE
Great plane,easy build and flys great. Make sure your TX is set up correctly. I was kind of intimidated after reading all of the reviews saying this plane is very responsive. Not so much. I set it up with 8mm ail and 18mm elv .I fly with 70% travel and 30% expo.I also use an Eagle Tree Guardian witch I use in all of my jets.I highly recommend the Guardian.I have six flights on it and it flys just as easy as my F-86,A-6 and Stinger, No problem. Landing is a breeze make long approaches and bleed off your speed . You will be surprised at how slow it will fly. Just let her sink,use power as needed and pull the nose up about 30 degrees just befor touchdown. Oh it is FAST also. BUY IT AND FLY IT LIKE YOU STOLD IT YOU WILL LOVE IT
Can takeoff from a short, wet grass field
I was looking for a jet that could take off from my Bahia grass even when wet and the Mirage delivers. It takes about 200 ft, but even when the grass is wet this jet will rotate without any drama or risk of a stall. I watched the videos here and cranked up the expo and down the rates on the ailerons and it was too slow of a roll rate for my liking, but made the Mirage very tame. I was nervous to fly this one, but it's a big pussycat if you put an A3L gyro in it like in Motion's video. I had to crank the gains way down to near off to be able to stop the high speed oscillation though. With the gyro and this jets ability to high alpha, it will fly extremely slow and you can near hover down the runway without any wing rocking. I had a gear issue out of the box with one of the mains, but Motion took care of me quickly. After 15 flights in sand and grass, the nose gear is starting to give me issues with not retracting fully enough to close the nose gear door. Aside from the gear issues, it's been a fun jet to fly. It has a low wing loading and can turn very tightly. After I got used to the speed, it seems slow for the claimed 110-118 mph, but on the bright side it's extremely stable with the gyro, can high alpha around very slow and lands and flies easily. I don't think it's very hard to land or fly and this is my first large jet and only second jet period. I'm going to try some higher C batteries to see if I can squeeze a little more speed out of it, but if you're on the fence I wouldn't be too concerned flying this one. If you've got orientation down and can land a warbird, there's nothing hard about this one as long as you crank the ailerons down first.
Great jet pnp version goes together like a dream
This is a well built edf and looks amazing I love this hobby but don't have a lot of time for extensive Builds. This edf like the rest of the freewing birds Is rite up my alley can't wait to fly it but I already know That it's awsome. Just like the rest of my freewing birds Love them all.
