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.

Unstable or oscillating wings especially in windy conditions
It flies well but the wings have a tendency to oscillate in the air especially in somewhat windy conditions in level flight. My friend's model has the same flight characteristics meaning it does the same thing with the oscillating wings. The landing gear are not very sturdy and bend easily. To repair the landing gear the glued on skirts must be removed and it's inconvenient to do so every time they need repair. I'm surprised the reviews on this plane are so good. The best thing about this plane is it's cheap. There are better 70mm models. I should have bought the 80mm Avanti in the red color scheme.
Great first EDF
Got this as my first EDF. Flies great, it's very fast. Only problem I've had is the nose gear buckled after a hard landing and I had to replace, plus the nose cone is fragile. Other than that it's perfect.
The paint does not stay good and the recommendations for the adapter to the battery that was recommend do not connect to eachother, plus it would be better to recommend a full kit with remote, reciever and batteries in case someone doesn't have the correct parts all together. I have been looking and can not find the best reciever foe the plane, so I have had it for about 3 weeks and am still reluctant to be able to even be able to let the landing gear come down.
Yak 130 EDF
One of my finest flying EDF jets. Had one bad servo on right Aileron causing full uncommanded deflection, caught it on preflight . I did notice a jitter in flight , I determined from the BEC getting overloaded by frequent gear and flap extensions. I added a 5amp ubec , seemed to clear up the issue . I’d recommend that FMS and Freewing add 5-15 amp ubec to all of their EDF and large prop models . It’s way too a demand un those little ESC BECs . Otherwise a beautiful model , very short take off , slightly long landing roll yet easy to fly , and see . I flew 6s 2200-5000 ma batteries , keeping the larger batteries an inch back of the fwd limit for a good cg. Nose wheel contacts foam once retracted causing it to fail to extend on one landing , I removed some foam and it fixed it.
This is my second FWMRC 70mm Yak130, my first Yak130 needed to be retired. These birds are incredibly easy to fly, it could be your first EDF. Just don’t fly it with a 5000mah lipo, it flies very heavy. Otherwise, this bird SOARS like an angel.
Top notch on overall plane. However im having a small issue at very high speed with elavator input. Seems to highspeed stall out of a fast dive. Cant get it go do this any other time. Handles nicely at lower speeds. Axial rolls a bit dirty as well. Any help to curb this will be greatly appreciated.
Using a 2650 (6s) battery. Lots of power and speed. Very stable. Flies off grass-ok. Can take-off in 30 feet on asphalt runway. Great value. Flaps help slow plane for landing. Very impressive.
A1 super fast shipping
Highly rated so far
Great looking right out of the box. Packaged very well & arrived in in excellent condition. Have not got to fly it yet due to the weather but am excited to get it out. Will be able to tell you more then.
