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.

Nice plane but needs updates
The good: This is a nice flying plane, especially with the Freewing 2210Kv inrunner motor. Looks and sounds great. The quality of the parts is good and it assembles easily. There is plenty of room for a 4000mAH lipo. The red/white color scheme has good visibility. The bad: The kit is now three years old and needs updates to compete with other offerings. The landing gear is non-scale and ****. The grub screws on the wire landing gear eventually loosen requiring maintenance, so having to rip off the glued-on gear covers is inconvenient. The covers should attach with screws. The wing spar is three pieces and somewhat flexible. There should be a single, stiffer spar all the way through to reduce flexing. It has no LEDs unlike the BAE Hawk which sells for the same price. And the worst issue: the horizontal and vertical stabilizers glue on, making replacement difficult. They should attach with screws.
Yak 130 6s
I have a Yak 130 70mm flys amazing I fly big jets to but I take this jet out to the field all the time due to how amazing it flys and speed I have my other fly friends complement me all the time on how well it flys and lands. Just for the guys out there looking between the motion rc and the FMS yak to it’s not the same plane as the motion rc yak, the FMS yak is a lot tighter where your battery and esc and receiver goes it’s a tight fit. The motion rc yak has a bigger compartment to hold your battery, receiver and esc and Gyro. I recommend only Motion Rc and there service guys also very helpful. Thanks motion rc!!!
The plane is a good flying plane for the price seem to take a long time to get a lot of Runway to take off so I put her dr. Mad thrust 26 KV motor in it and it is fast takes off for the short distance it's wonderful flying plane
Very good model, but just a detail, the model came in 2/3 versions standard, with 3s batt. 70 fun , 4s batt. 90 fun 12 blades, upgrade 6 blades. On the box theese differences are not in evidence

This jet is great - you can see it in gray, cloudy, or clear skies. It has a fairly large flight envelope. As for most jets, flight times are short, 3-4 minutes. I put in a reversing esc to slow it down for a fairly short runway, now I just have to get used to increasing throttle to slow the plane down. As usual, Motion RC was great.
Super fast shipping.
