Freewing T-45 Goshawk Super Scale 90mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS
Freewing T-45 Goshawk Super Scale with 12 Blade 90mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS - FJ30711K+
The T-45 Goshawk is a fully carrier-capable version of the British Aerospace Hawk Mk.60. It was developed as a jet flight trainer for the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The Goshawk's origins began in the mid-1970s, when the US Navy began looking for replacement for its T-2 and TA-4 trainers. British Aerospace and McDonnell Douglas proposed a version of the Hawk and were awarded the T-45 contract in 1981. The Goshawk first flew in 1988 and became operational in 1991.
Many RC models of the T-45 have been produced over the years, due to the aircraft's great looks and superb handling. After 150+ test flights, we believe this is the best foam RC PNP scale T-45 Goshawk in the world today. The Freewing T-45 sets itself apart from the competition with numerous scale details and innovative features such as servo actuated speed brakes and plastic wormgear-driven slats. These slats are the first production release of a proper slat in a foam model of any size, and use aluminum tracks to ensure proper extension geometry. Other plastic details include a row of turbulators on the wings, exhaust nozzle, pitot tubes, antennas, arrestor hook, and cockpit parts. The sequenced landing gear utilize a four part nose door like the real T-45, and a three part main door assembly. The struts replicate the stance of the T-45, complete with long travel trailing link mains and a nose strut with tow bar and landing light. All control surfaces, lights, and doors are managed by a single junction board complete with quick disconnect wing harnesses, providing a very tidy cockpit. Say goodbye to unsightly jumbles of wires in your battery bay!
Intended as a "Scale Plus" flyer, the Freewing T-45 Goshawk excels in scale maneuvers and stability throughout its flight envelope. The Freewing T-45's climb rate, roll rate, top speed, and overall agility are virtually identical to the Freewing Stinger 90 jet. With speed brakes, flaps, and slats deployed, the T-45 can land at a slow jogging pace and is the most stable of all Freewing's large jets in the landing pattern. The T-45 cruises at 50% throttle and we measured an average top speed of 90mph in level flight after a slight dive. With its scale landing gear, lights, and other details, the Freewing 90mm T-45 Goshawk will be the gem of any RC pilot's jet fleet and offers pilots an easier flight experience compared to similar jets in this size..
This ARF PLUS (ARF+) version is intended for pilots who want to install their own power system. Just drop in your own ESC, motor and fan and you'll be airborne in minutes. This model is designed for versatility, and can also CG with 8s or 10s power systems, providing pilots with a widely upgradable platform in a high scale fidelity package.

Freewing T-45 Goshawk ARF+
Outstanding value compared to other 90mm offerings from Freewing. My intent is to install a JetFan on HET inrunner and fly on 8S. Castle Creations 130 HV ESC is a rocking combo.
I have now had 3 of these planes and the first was with the standard 1550kv motor. This is not the right motor for the airplane. Sure it will fly, but it just hangs in the air. Due to the fact it has all the bells and whistles, this makes it a heavy plane, especially wing load. I have now had 3 different motors plus the standard. The three additional motors I used were the HET purchased from MRC 4068 with 1680Kv. The HET purchased direct 4068 1680Kv and the Mercury 1900Kv 6S. All were 6S. The most efficient was the HET from High Efficiency Technology. For some reason this has more power than that from MRC. Don’t ask why it just does. The plane flies very well and is very fast with the HET motors with the FW fan. I have heard that it is even better with the FMS 90 fan, (not the shroud). I have not tried it at this point. I will say due to the weight factor of the plane you need to fly this plane to land. Do not just float or bring in the plane without some power. It is just too heavy. Other than this one issue it is a very good airplane to fly.

Fantastic model. I dropoed a Dr. Madthrust 90mm in and rub it on 2 5s 5000mah packs. Plenty of room for the packs as well as a flight pack
Better Flyin Plane Than I Thought
After the build, which was easy, by the way, I was questioning my skills to fly this thing on my maiden flight. To my surprise, the takeoff was very smooth and I input very little trimming in flight. As with most edf jets, you have to keep the power on during low to mid throttle banks and turns but this plan does it very smoothly. I recommend an 8s setup to get the true abilities of this plane. But the 6s setup does work decently as well. A very robust feel to the plane and a surprisingly easy and forgiving plane to fly and land!! Overall a recommended plane to fly. I hope to buy another as it seems to be one of, if not the best, 90mm edf jet to fly!! Just wonderful!!

Beautiful plane. Lots of battery space. Running 2 x 5s lipos pushing Dr. Mad thrust 90mm fan.
Working on my 3rd one, love the plane so much! Never stop making it, or at least please keep parts available for it forever. Thanks!
Winner winner chicken dinner
This is a great out of the box performer. Straight forward and no bad tendencies. Take your time and go through everything including CG and you won't have any bad surprises. Anyone who claims this aircraft has faults needs to work on their flying skills. Works great with the stock 1550kv outrunner.
Looking forward to flying.
Love the detail of this jet. Am setting up with in runner motor and lightening the model by removing slats and air rake servos. Should fly really well. Hope to maiden soon.
