Freewing Yak-130 Red 70mm EDF Jet - PNP
Freewing Yak-130 Red 70mm EDF Jet - PNP - FJ20912P
Introducing the Freewing 12 blade 70mm EDF Yak-130, the latest in Freewing’s exciting 70mm EDF 6s jet series! This aircraft delivers on so many levels and truly impressed us at the flying field. Finally, a compact and affordable model of the popular Yak-130 design with a range of features seldom seen in the 70mm format.
On the ground and in the air, the Yak-130 looks fantastic at any angle. The high visibility “Red 02” trainer scheme gives pilots a scale model which is still very easy to orient in the sky. If you’re looking for a change from gray military jets, the Yak-130 will certainly stand out from the crowd! A detailed canopy and high scale fidelity profile capture the unique lines of this modern jet trainer, and over 50 waterslide decals are meticulously applied by hand to complete the look.
Even beyond its striking visual appeal, where the Yak-130 truly excels is its performance envelope. Pre-installed flaps shorten takeoff roll on pavement to a brief ~75 feet, and with full flaps the model can land to a stop in less than 100 feet with a slight headwind. The stock PNP’s 6s power system propels the Yak-130 to speeds approaching 90mph straight and level and gives the aircraft nearly unlimited vertical. With its large vertical stabilizer, the Yak-130 can hold a rock steady knife edge or execute the most stable four point roll of any Freewing jet in this class. The stall is very gentle and slowly nose down, forecasted by a telltale wing rocking which gives pilots plenty of notice to power up.
The battery bay is spacious to accommodate CG with a 6s 3000-4000mAh lipo. For pilots interested in installing a 70mm 4s power system, we found that a 4s 4000mAh lipo is ideal for a lightweight setup. The simplified landing gear is durable, utilizing metal trunions and steel coiled struts on the mains for dependable operation on pavement, geomat, or very short and evenly cut grass. For the ultimate in a versatility, the landing gear can also be removed and the aircraft can be hand tossed and belly landed.
Assembly is very straightforward. The wings each attach to the fuselage with two screws and a primary carbon wing spar. The vertical stabilizer and horizontal stabilizer tail group is glued on; we recommend 5 minute epoxy. The layout still allows easy access to the elevator servos for adjustment or replacement. A neat feature we enjoy is that the wingtip rails are smartly sheathed in plastic, to ward against dings or scratches during transport or a tipped landing. The EDF is easily accessed by a removable hatch on the aircraft’s belly, and the ESC is kept secure in a channel along the inner spine of the fuselage to give it sufficient cooling without obstructing airflow.
Freewing’s 70mm Yak-130 offers pilots the perfect transition aircraft from 64mm/70mm into 80mm/90mm jets. We found the Yak-130 to be ideal as a first or second jet with retracts for pilots looking to gain experience and confidence before making the jump into larger models. Even expert level pilots will appreciate the fun flight envelope of this unique modern jet trainer.

Great 70MM EDF. Flys like it's on rails, very fast yet slows to a crawl with flaps down, easy to land and takeoff.
70mm EDF Yak
These 70mm Yaks fly great...WFO they will move right along but you will have very short flights...they however will fly amazingly slow and flight times can be greatly extended. I like a high speed run for the heck of it but then usually spend the rest of my flight just poking along extending the flight time....
Seems to be a great
Seems to be a great product for the money. Super fast shipping.
I haven’t flown it yet but it looks good. Definitely not as much detail as I would expect from freewing but still looks great. I think I would’ve gone with the F-16 if I knew that it looked so “bleh”. Once again, I think it’s great, but for 230$ I think it should be a bit more detailed or at least the option to add better landing gear or something.
yak-130, a few flaws
Two major issues for me: wires from servos are maddenly short, making receiver hookup a PITA. Why not another 1/2 inch? We all know why. $$$ a few pennies saved. Second issue: Canopy is not secure. Came off in each of two flights. Latching mechanism is another $$$ few pennies issue. Don't see much of a widespread problem. Chat guy at Motion RC said he personally has never had that problem. Kind of off the point, isn't it? Easy fix. Don't take the chance. Yak does not fly well without the canopy.
YAK-130 vs. BAe HAWK
Since I now have both of the “FREEWING/MOTION R/C” beauties I thought I might share some thoughts on the two. Both are similar mid sized Jet Trainers with wide flight envelops that allow slow fly by’s and landings while also allowing impressive fast vertical moves. Most ‘high performance’ Jets are like trying to fly a bullet, which is something I am too old and slow for, that’s why I prefer the trainer types. Both of these trainers have spring loaded canopy latches and are painted “EYE CANDY” high vis red with the YAK having an equal amount of white that give it a peppermint stick appearance. In addition, the YAK has two detailed pilots which most two place jets (like the Hawk) seem to lack. However, the Hawk has bright LED lights that are a plus for it and it seems to have a slight power edge which a “Flying Miss Daisy” pilot like me would never notice. And, as a one time USAF Jet Mechanic I like to place these two A/C side by side to study the design differences between the Russian and Brit Jets. One of the most noticeable differences between the two is the much larger vertical stabilizer on the YAK witch I assume might make it more maneuverable. However, I think some one could cut off the white tip with out any problems to stream line the A/C. Although I haven’t flown either of these yet, because we have been getting snow almost every day, I judge them to be equal but different in appearance and both are a welcome addition to my personal Air Force.

Very good planen easy to carry !
2nd EDF - Yak-130
The Yak -130 is my second Freewing EDF. I started with the Rebel and was very pleased with its performance and wanted a 6 cell EDF as my second plane, choosing the Yak. The speed of the Yak is great running on the Flourean 4500 Mah batteries. With this battery it balances without any additional nose or tail weight.. My landings are still not perfect, but the retracts are taking the abuse in the learning process. I would highly recommend this plane to others interested in stepping up to a 6 cell EDF.
Should name this yak 130 v2
I had the v1 with the 6 blade fan and separate wing spars which expired about a year ago. I was skeptical about the 12 blade fan but now in hindsight I am glad I bought this. There is more power in this new fan/motor setup and it is just right for a scale yak 130. Good power for big loops and good vertical capability, able to comfortably do three rolls in the vertical. (Hard to do with the 6 blade). The wings seem to be much stiffer then before. The spar could be best described as a three spar concentric setup, with the spars sliding into each other to form a single spar. The center spar is already installed in the fuselage. My only suggestions would be to make the tail feathers more accessible as a screw on as opposed to glue on which would make the replacing the servos easier. And possibly adding scalish shock assorbing landing gear like a certain other brand did with there's. These are not absolute requirements but if done well would improve this product. That is not to detract from what it is. I still would give it a 5 out of 5!
