Freewing Stinger 90 Extreme Performance 90mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing 90mm 12-Blade Metal EDF Stinger Extreme Performance Jet - Receiver Ready in Red Sport Color Scheme
If you are a RC Pilot seeking the highest performance EDF jet available, look no further than the Freewing Stinger 90 Extreme Performance Jet. Developed from the ground up for speed, realism, and performance, the Stinger 90 combines all the latest RC plane technology into sleek sport jet airframe. The new 12-blade EDF with metal housing powered by a massive 3748-1450KV Outrunner Motor produces over 7 pounds of thrust for extreme speeds and intense aerobatics. 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.
Freewing spared no expense with electronics in this plane, they are using a 130A Hobbywing ESC and 17gram metal gear servos. The nose and main landing gear are all metal and include shock absorbing struts to protect the gear during hard landings. Other premium features include super bright LED landing lights, sequenced landing gear doors, and detailed cockpit. Motion RC requested a "top of the line" performance EDF jet and Freewing Model delivered with the Stinger 90 Extreme Performance Jet. Be the first at your flight field to own what is surely one of the best EDF jets available today.

I bought this place because I had never flown EDF and wanted to give it a try. I set it up and headed to the field. First flight was terrific, it flies like it’s on rails. Stable and predictable. Surprisingly, to me anyway, when I in put full flaps, there was no down elevator mix required. It is a terrific fun plane. The 5000 MaH batteries only last about 4 minutes, though. I missed a landing yesterday after the timer went off and had to go around, by the time I landed I only had 10% left on the battery! That cut it close! You won’t go wrong with this little beauty! One thing I would recommend, either replace the metric phillips head screws with socket heads, or get a metric screwdriver.
Not so happy with these stock main wing gears.. Always twisting and loosening up (stripped) and so the Allen screws your not able to tighten any more..So Very happy now that I have replaced mains with L39 landing gears and never had that problem again...My stinger is my favorite plane now equipped with inrunner and 155 gecko amp! Assume grasser now...
This jet I bought off a friend. So stable no need for a gyro!!! Have 16 sorties and fast! Had it radar detected 104mph! Put flaps on slider on radio a lot easier to get to when on final. Also no need to use takeoff flaps this plane has great lift! Pop tops a lot of fun! Wing overs no problem! Sound is better than the Avanti S.
flys very well, easy to see, no bad tendency on landing or flying. easy to assemble. it is a little tight where you connect the battery but it is workable. not as fast as I hoped, I am getting 118mph. over all I am very pleased with the stinger. The recommended throws are very accurate with some expo according to your flying desire of sensitivity.
I have remove the landing gear from the Stinger and easily hand launch it on a regular basis. The launcher just holds The model overhead and just about lets it go and it flies out of his hands. I belly land it without difficulty and without damage. It makes an excellent model with or without landing gear.
This is my 2nd Stinger, the first, after 80 flights, flew off into the Everglades on the final approach downwind before turning to land, no idea why. Eventually found by Donna, the python hunter, in wet marsh, total loss. This was my 1st EDF and after getting the hang of EDF's, I got to love the way this flies so much and had some left over custom graphics from the 1st repainted one (cause I hate the way the stock looked), so I had to replace it. Repainted this 2nd one again, installed the AR636 and an RC Geek LED afterburner. Flies outstanding on the 6000mah battery for around 4:30. Cruises at 50% throttle. Faster than my Avanti 80mm, but a little heavier and requires a touch more throttle in landing, similar to my 2 F-4s and 90mm F-16. The other issue is plugging and unplugging 6 servo leads when transporting if you separate the wings and remove them, so I got Chris Hansen's 5 pin latching polarized servo ends and reduced it to 2 very easy to plug leads. Could have reduced it to 1 plug if I could have left the wing halves together, but 2 ain't bad. For more info and photos, go to the Hobby Squawk thread on this jet. Get one and repaint it using your imagination.
noble flight fast / slow. the two headlights help a lot in landing. after three minutes of flight the 6s 5000 battery has 20% left, just to land
I was amazed at the amount of thought and engineering that went into this Jet. This is my first Motion RC aircraft purchase. It certainly will not be the last. I definitely will purchase another Freewing EDF Model in the near future. One thing I would like to see in the Instruction Manual is a wiring diagram for the preinstalled electronic components of the jet. The connections were well labled. But, there were components that I did not initially recognize. I think one of them is a stabilization gyro, but I am still not sure. There also appears to be an electronic landing gear controller, but who knows. It is just a magic box. Also, I had a bit of trepidation when first powering up the electronics. The model is equipped with a BEC that is seperate from the ESC which makes sense for the number of digital servos and the amount of current draw on the EDF drive system. However, something that says what is included and how it is wired would be reassuring and helpful. The box also says that a seperate 1S battery is required for the landing lights. This is actually not required on my model. There are excellent drawings and descriptions of the pre-installed mechanical components. Also, the flaps and ailerons can be adjusted to align with the trailing edge of the wing at the tips or the roots but not both. I did not notice any warpage in the surfaces or the wing. So this is odd. The flap servos are on a Y-connector. However, the flaps do not have the same amount of travel due to differences in the servos. The difference is slight. But, this is something that I am afraid may be enough of an issue that I will have to seperate the flap servos on to seperate channels and adjust the servo travels individually. I have not flown my jet yet. I have seen Freewing models fly several times though and they are excellent. They seem to posess good flight characteristics.
I have been spoiled by all of the other jets I own. They all went together without issue and everything fit. The canopy on my Stinger 90 is wrinkled along the edges and the **** on the bottom does not allow for a 6s 5000mah battery to fit without major modification. The magnets are so weak I had to get a latch to make sure it stays in place during flight. The other issue I have is that the ailerons and flaps cannot line up properly with the wing. When aligned together the flaps are higher than the inner portion of the wing and do not line up for nice straight lines.
