Laut Markus Prager, der die Phantom in der Jetpower 01/2019 vorgestellt hat, ist die Phantom ein Spaßmodell die in seinem 6-seitigen Bericht einen durchgehend positiven Eindruck hinterlässt.
Angefangen beim Unboxing und der ersten Begutachtung des Modells, bis hin zum Antrieb, Fahrwerk und den ersten Probeflügen.
Sein Fazit, ein Modell mit dem man ohne großen Aufwand und langen Bauzeiten Spass haben kann und das auch bei nicht gepflegten Grasbahnen kein Herzrasen beim Piloten oder Schäden am Modell verursacht.
KIT+: Modell mit Servos, ggf. Fahrwerk/Landeklappen aber OHNE Antrieb.
PNP: Modell mit Servos, ggf. Fahrwerk/Landeklappen MIT Antrieb.
Aviation enthusiasts have long loved the F-4 Phantom, and Freewing is extremely proud to introduce our 90mm Super Scale Series rendition of this ultimate warfighter! For more than 50 years, the F-4 Phantom delivered the versatile capabilities required of an all-weather frontline supersonic interceptor, fighter-bomber, SEAD, and reconnaissance platform. Less than a year after its retirement from US military service, you can still keep the F-4 Phantom flying in your RC fleet!
This limited edition “Ghost Grey” version honors two distinguished men in our customer family, General Keith “Shadow” Stalder who flew BuNos 061007 as part of US Marines Squadron VMFA-531 “Grey Ghosts”, and Robert “Hoot” Gibson who flew with the US Navy’s VF-111 “Sundowners” aboard the USS Coral Sea in 1972-1974. A detailed waterslide decal set is included depicting both pilot’s aircraft, and we are grateful for their input to help us ensure these decals’ accuracy! Join us in proudly flying General Stalder’s and Hoot Gibson’s aircraft’s markings, or for pilots wanting to customize their F-4 with their own scheme, we recommend Callie-Graphics.com.
RC pilots have consistently requested a large F-4 EDF jet that performs excellently out of the box without endless modifications. We developed this F-4 to deliver reliability, durability, and performance from your very first flight. Grass operation is a hallmark of the Freewing 90mm F-4. With its wide stance, tall main tires, Oleo suspension nose strut and concealed trailing link suspension main struts, this aircraft performs well on rougher grass fields.
Super scale details include accurate dual landing lights flush-mounted into the scale operating nose wheel doors, DayBright position lights, rivet detail, static arrestor hook, and period accurate ordnance comprising four AIM-9D Sidewinders and two 370 gallon fuel tanks on removable hardpoints. Plastic details include pitot tubes, ejection seat pull rings, and molded exhaust nozzles. The large fiberglass nose cone is magnetic and removable, and the chin pod beneath it is foam, allowing easy removable and customization for other versions (-C or late -D). An optional, highly detailed 3DPUP set (“3D Printed Upgrade Part”) is available that represents the correct Mk H-7 ejection seats and cockpit instrument panels in high detail.

Such a large RC model aircraft remains easy to transport with magnetic removable fiberglass nose cone and removable wings with a convenient flexible wire harness that attaches at each wing root. Large flaps, brass ball links, reliable control hardware, and digital servos throughout the aircraft provide positive control, and a specially designed elevator mechanism incorporates two ball bearings for smooth rotation at all times.
The Freewing 90mm F-4 Phantom II is available in two power system versions. The Standard version requires a 6S 5000-6000 mAh LiPo battery, and is our top recommendation to pilots seeking the best balance between speed, thrust, and cost. The High Performance version requires an 8S 5000 mAh LiPo battery, and delivers increased vertical climbing performance and acceleration. The High Performance version is recommended for Advanced pilots only due to the aircraft’s higher speed envelope and heavier flying characteristics.
Own the biggest and best performing foam EDF F-4 Phantom in the world – Rejoice RC pilots, Freewing has delivered another grand slam!
