F/A-18C Hornet Gray Diamonds from Freewing Model

Details

This is the High Performance version of the Freewing F/A-18C Hornet "Gray Diamonds" with pre-applied decals. This version includes a powerful 3672-1900Kv inrunner motor with new lightweight 9-blade fan, 130A ESC, upgraded 17g digital metal gear elevator servos and upgraded digital metal gear flap servos.

Over ten years ago, Freewing began developing their first American 90mm EDF, the F/A-18E Super Hornet. To celebrate Freewing’s Eleventh anniversary, we are proud to announce an all-new 90mm F/A-18C Hornet, complete with all the latest features common to modern era EDFs in our Super Scale series. Be sure to save a summer slot for the Freewing F/A-18C, the quintessential 90mm Hornet on the planet!
