F/A-18C Hornet Blue Angels from Freewing Model

Details

Over ten years ago, Freewing began developing their first American 90mm EDF, the F/A-18E Super Hornet. Made of EPS foam and sporting a plastic five blade fan, that model was one of the first 90mm PNPs to demonstrate Freewing’s dreams, and it set the stage for their evolution. Having partnered with us at Motion RC for the past seven years, we’ve all been humbly privileged to expand the Foam EDF Jet’s place in the RC hobby and earn the business of customers worldwide. Thank you for your continued feedback, excitement, and trust!

Features:

  • This is not a V3, but a completely new design/variant from the ground-up
  • F/A-18C “Legacy”, the world’s first C variant 90mm PNP
  • Efficient and powerful 90mm 9-Blade EDF
  • 6S 5000-6000mAh lipo can easily achieve 4-5+ minutes of managed flight time (see our video in the video tab above)
  • Manufactured with durable and quality EPO foam, not EPS
  • Complete screw-together assembly without the need for any glue
  • Scale outline, including open vents between the fuselage and intakes, and downward angled wingtip rails never before seen in a foam F-18
  • Completely concealed elevator servos and elevator control hardware for less drag and clean scale outline
  • Full coverage plastic undercarriage doors
  • Aluminum suspension undercarriage
  • Trailing link struts
  • Low visibility rudder servo placement
  • Low visibility flap servo placement and geometry
  • All-new plastic Fowler flap arm hinges to mimic those on the real F-18
  • Removable plastic-tipped magnetic nose cone
  • Removable wings with QD wing harness
  • LED lighting on nose strut, chines, and dorsal
  • Large battery bay for battery, MFCB, and gyro
  • Sharp and shallow panel lines in sensible areas without reducing overall scale effect
  • Pre-molded wing station to accept Freewing’s MWS plastic slot system (aftermarket pylons, ordnance, 3DP, Runcam, etc)
  • Quick Service servo plates on the wings and vertical stabilizers (screws, not glue)
  • Plastic lined coaming to resist bubbling under the canopy
  • Plastic tipped nosecone, capped intake lips and wingtip rails with pre-installed MWS slot
  • Plastic nozzles with two-tone metallic paint job
  • Blue Angels livery with factory-installed primary markings and un-installed tail number/BuNos

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet


McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet

The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now part of Boeing) and Northrop (now part of Northrop Grumman), the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations, and formerly, by the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.

The F/A-18 was designed to be a highly versatile aircraft due to its avionics, cockpit displays, and excellent aerodynamic characteristics, with the ability to carry a wide variety of weapons. The aircraft can perform fighter escort, fleet air defense, suppression of enemy air defenses, air interdiction, close air support, and aerial reconnaissance. Its versatility and reliability have proven it to be a valuable carrier asset, though it has been criticized for its lack of range and payload compared to its earlier contemporaries, such as the Grumman F-14 Tomcat in the fighter and strike fighter role, and the Grumman A-6 Intruder and LTV A-7 Corsair II in the attack role.

The Hornet first saw combat action during the 1986 United States bombing of Libya and subsequently participated in the 1991 Gulf War and 2003 Iraq War. The F/A-18 Hornet served as the baseline for the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, its larger, evolutionary redesign.
