F-4D Phantom II (Freewing EDF jet)

Discussion in 'R/C Videos and Pictures' started by dominicm, Aug 12, 2018.

  1. I have filmed several turbine F-4 Phantoms. It's an iconic jet and have always wanted to try flying one but a turbine version is well out of my reach. Cue to Freewing F-4D Phantom II. Looks like the real thing after 15 minutes of assembly and applying the decals. Dropped in my receiver and a 6S5000 flight pack and I was ready to go.

  2. Motion RC never fails to impress me. They crank out some really cool stuff.

    Yes they do. Learning jet flying with the Avanti S has been great fun. I have been eyeballing that F-4 as well. Put a lot of JP-5 in them and then watched them get slung off the deck of the FID.

    Two if the three Avanti's in the club of died from Pilot error. One flew his right into the ground last Sunday, and the other guys error was picking the wrong guy to do the first flight for him. He chose poorly.

    I have the book about the fire, "Sailors To The End" but I haven't read it yet.

    I never understood why some let others do the "Maiden"?. All that "Fun & Excitement" you deny yourself :laughing:.

    All in all the Avanti S is a sweet flying EDF and glides really well. Now it does zip along and can get real small rather quickly and orientation can be easily lost. But I NEVER do stupid stuff like that :rolleyes:.

    Even to this very day ALL assigned personnel must be "trained" in fire fighting on all Navy ships. Because of the fire on USS Forrestal CV-59.

    I agree as well, Mike. I picked up a Motion RC P-38. Very nice plane and it looks like a blast to fly. . . . .:yesss:. Went ahead and got the upgraded engine & props, plus retracts. It's beeen moved down the assembly list behind my Giant Stick.

    I've flown the Mig21, Stinger 90, and F86, all great airplanes.
