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.

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!
UPS is not a very handy transportation. They do not deliver to one of my neighbours and they do not give a time for delivery to plan on. Most of the time I go to Adam headdepot to pick it up myself, this is not how it should be. So post nl is much much better, the worst is really UPS and I do have al lot of expience with the transporters. So pls change it!!!!!!

Very easy to put together and fly,s like a dream,would make a very good introduction into EDF jets,also very good for the more experienced pilots
Yak-130 on grass field
Got my Yak-130 2 weeks ago, before vacation, so haven’t been able to fly it as much as I would have liked, but have logged in 5 flights so far. I fly from a grass field and have to say that the ops are iffy off of grass. First attempt failed at ROG off grass. I then shifted the battery (Fluoreon 4500 6s 610g) as far aft as possible and deployed half flaps. I thought I was going to run out of runway, but was able to get her up, just barely and probably lifted off before she had enough airspeed because controls were really sloppy. However, once she is in the air, she looks and flies fantastic. Low passes are awesome. Sounds great in the air. There does tend to be some tail waggle at slower speeds and with high winds. Slows down nicely. I land with full flaps and she does great. My settings currently are setup so that my high rates are the low rates suggested in the manual. I will slowly be playing with those settings over time. The flaps are at full rates listed in the manual, but all others are setup with the high rates being the lowest amounts recommended and I generally fly on low rates, so much much lower than the low rates recommended. One CQ issue, one gear does not retract all the way when in an upright position. But when inverted, the gear all retract nicely. Looks like the wheel gets caught up on the plastic wheel well. Wish it had lights included. Color scheme is very visible in the sky. I also used magnets to attach the nose cone and would highly recommend that on bumpy grass fields. My nose would have dug in and flipped the plane if I had not used magnets. Despite some shortcomings on grass, I would still highly recommend this bird. Very stable in the air, so would even be fine as a first EDF for newer pilots.
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
