Default Freewing 90mm F-18 Super Hornet v3

I saved up my allowance for a few months and bought the FreeWing 90mm F-18 Super Hornet EDF from Motion RC. This is my 3rd purchase from there and I definitely recommend them. It is the same model that Hobby-Lobby (now Hobby Express) introduced a while back.

It took me a while to convince myself to spend that much money on a foam model, but I believe it was worth it. To outfit a composite or balsa EDF of similar dimensions would have cost almost double.

I maidened her last weekend and couldn't be happier.
This plane is a blast to fly!

The roll out was fairly short. Trim was about 10 clicks left aileron and the elevator required none.

The retracts worked perfectly and she is very stable and predictable in the air.

I am really looking forward to flying this model more and getting to know it better.
