Freewing Pandora 4-in-1 Blue 1400mm (55") Wingspan - PNP
Freewing Pandora 4-in-1 Blue 1400mm (55") Wingspan - PNP - FT30111P
The Freewing Pandora is not only one of the best beginner planes on the market, it is a great intermediate plane too. How is this possible? The Pandora ships as a high wing trainer. Simply change the canopy to the included low wing canopy and move the wings to the bottom of the fuselage and you now have a light sport low wing plane perfect for an intermediate pilot. In addition there are two sets of wheels. There is a set of tricycle landing gear which the Motion RC Pilots think looks best on the low wing plane, and there is a set of "Big Wheel" landing gear in tail dragger format which is perfect for grass and dirt takeoff/landing. The "Big Wheels" even work on tall thick grass with ease.
You literally have 4 combinations and can make 4 different planes. This is a fantastic concept which is very enjoyable to fly. The Pandora does not get knocked around by the wind as much as a smaller plane. Though it is recommended beginners do not fly in a lot of wind, this plane is easier than most to fly in a bit of wind because of the larger size and weight. The guys at Motion RC think the Freewing Pandora may quickly become the plane of choice for both beginner and intermediate pilots. This is one of the best performing, best built, best values in RC planes.

- May 6, 2013 - Optional flaps are molded into the wings along with a pocket for the flap servos. Better yet, the hardware for the optional flaps is included. You only need two 9 gram servos to make the flaps fully operational in about 10 minutes. If you use one flap channel, you will need a Y cable, one forward 9g servo, and one reverse 9g servo. If you use two channels for flaps, you can use two forward 9g servos and reverse one channel using your radio. If you need any help picking out servos for the flaps, the guys at Motion RC are happy to help.

Smooth order: replacing a terrible crash, I ordered a new plane paid for with PayPal. The order was processed and shipped the same day! Received within a week; great service!
Good service, great plane and
Good service, great plane and very poor manual, missing hardware
great plane .
This is my second one. The first one was my first plane 3 and a half years ago and has been abused to where it is hard to glue things together. I did put a bigger motor in it so it is way fun.
Motion RC - The Best
As always Motion RC provided me with my order in a fast and reliable manner, thanks to them I'm back in the air before we run out of season!
Once I put it together ,I am sure I can crash it That's why I bought two Just like The A-10s Fix one will build another new one Thank you for advice I am new at at this game
I have been flying for 4 months and just got signed off as a pilot. This plane takes a lickn and keeps on tickn. Great first plane. Plan on ordering another.
2 blade vs 3 blade prop
i thought it would be good to test whether a 2 blade prop produces more thrust than a three blade. Using a digital strain gauge (fish weigher) I compared the static thrust at full throttle of the 3 blade which comes with the Pandora vs an APC12X6 sold by our heroes. I've 3d-printed spinner and hubs for the two blade - apparently nothing on the market will fit the shaft which came with the plane because of the hex so I made my own. They take a lot of fussing to balance them but when they are balanced they are almost as true as the one which comes with the plane. to cut to the chase, at full throttle using my FrSky transceiver and receiver, I get 1195-1200 grams with the 3 blade and 1300 grams with 2 blade. This is a static test -plane on taildragger setup with small wheels, not moving and with cowl cover installed but not wings. The 3 blade provides plenty of thrust and I generally fly at half throttle. Probably you couldn't tell the difference in the air, but .... A downside of using the 2 blade prop is that because it is pretty stout, crashes involving the prop seem harder on the plane. the 3-blade usually shears off one of the blades and in so doing does less damage to the nose of the plane. I still think this is a really good plane.
If you saw my last review in which I wrote about my motor self-destructing, well that's not an issue anymore. I flew my newly powered PANDORA today as a trike high-wing. She was AWSOME! She was well behaved, well mannered, and even frisky! I say that because I got her to do several barrel rolls with NO trouble. I've tried all 4 versions, and I truely LOVE this one. Shes an awsome bird, DON'T THINK TWICE, BUY ON,,,OR TWO,,,OR,,,
I will start by saying that the PANDORA is a great airplane. She flies well, is well mannered in all 4 configurations, and is a fun aircraft to fly. Now the bad. My freewing 3536 800kv motor that was provided in the kit, self destructed. I was flying it Sunday and the snapwasher that holds the motor together popped off. Because of that, the motor came apart and refused to run. I put it back together to no availe. She refused to run. Needless to say, I ordered a new motor so I hope that I just got a low quality motor with the airplane. We shall see. Otherwise, she is a joy to fly.
