Following up on their popular 70mm variant, Freewing has answered the many customer calls to scale up their F-104 Starfighter and give it the full "90mm Super Scale" treatment. The Freewing 90mm F-104 boasts a host of features that until recently were unimaginable in the foam electric market for this price point such as scale operating landing gear CNC machined from durable 6061 aluminum, completely removable flying surfaces, pre-installed gyro flight stabilizer, functional speed brakes, and a pre-installed LED afterburner ring. Additional features include sequenced landing gear doors, an integrated circuit board to simplify wiring, LED formation lights, magnetic nose cone, removable tip tanks, and plastic details including a molded tail cone.
The Plug and Play (PNP) version includes a powerful 1650kv outrunner motor and 130A ESC, and is designed for the common 6s 5000mah lipo battery size used in other Freewing jets. Intended as a "Scale Plus" flyer, the Freewing F104 Starfighter excels in scale maneuvers, stable flat passes, fast rolls, and tall loops. It looks like a rocket sprinting upwards toward the sun! The F-104 has a predictable glideslope, and its landing attitude will be familiar to those who have flown the Freewing F-16.
The Freewing 90mm F-104 Starfighterc includes pre-installed Freewing E51 Gyro. The E51 Gyro stabilizes the flight handling of the aircraft in all three axes, contributing to a more accessible control experience. The Gyro gains can be adjusted separately for the Aileron, Elevator, and Rudder channels. A remote On/Off function requires an additional channel on your receiver, and is recommended for initial flights until the Gyro is adjusted to your personal preference.
The Freewing 90mm F-104 Starfighter is quite a surprise at the flying field because it flies much more stable than it appears it can. Onlookers will swear that it cannot fly slowly due to the F-104’s iconic stubby wings, but in fact Freewing has optimized their RC rendition to handle gently at a wide flight envelope while remaining as true to scale appearance as possible.The Freewing F-104 cruises at 50% throttle and we measured an average top speed of 92mph in level flight. With mixed throttle, an 6s 5000 mAh 50c battery gives 3-4 minutes of flight. With its scale landing gear, iconic profile, and other details, the Freewing 90mm F-104 Starfighter will be standout in your hangar and at your flying field!
