Default Freewing F-35 Lightning II V3 70mm EDF Jet

This is my Unboxing & Review for the Freewing F-35 Lightning II V3 70mm EDF Jet.

Here are my review notes for this pretty Steath Fighter EDF RC Jet:

Pros:
- The paint and details are absolutely stunning on this F-35 Steath Fighter Jet.
- It comes with nice suspension, including trailing link nose gear
- Plastic coated canopy to prevent gatoring
- A big battery bay

Cons:
- The main con and that is why I didn't give the simple overall build a Pro is that the servo connectors for the rudders and had a lot of paint on them making it difficult to determine polarity.
- Lights like my Freewing BAe Hawk T1 70mm EDF Jet would have been a nice touch too.

Flies nicely. Looks good in the air, cool flair before the landing.

This is my second flight with the Freewing F-35 V3 and I am much happier with this landing than the first one!

Thank you Cpt! It is beautiful and sounds great. There is a learning curve to fly it along with having to remind yourself not to watch it in the air. It looks so cool I just want to gawk at it in the sky lol

That one appeals to me more than a lot of EDF jets but we fly off a grass field so that is always a concern for me. If our lawnmower man was always on the ball it might not be too bad, but unfortunately he is not.

The more I fly this, the more I like it! This is a fun flight I got in at the beginning of August and a special guest showed up:


Check out my latest flight from today filled with fun, drama, and a pretty nice landing lol:
