Default Excellent Condition - HobbyZone Freedom

Excellent Condition - HobbyZone Freedom

Very clean plane that I bought as new-defective and I replaced one of the servos and it works fine now. (Checked out the plane extensively but it has never been flown.) PLane looks brand new.

Note: Although HobbyZone rates this plane as Zone 1, I would not recommend it as a first plane unless you have some experience on a simulator - a bit too fast / aerobatic. (MUCH better for a beginner to start with a slower more stable plane like the HobbyZone Commander II.) I would also suggest covering the lower ACT sensor with electrical tape and using the ACT control on transmitter as a dual rate control. Adding 3 quarters to nose moves CG forward for better balance and reduces tendancy to tip stall.

Comes in original box with all accessories / parts (Plane, transmitter, 8.4V NIMH battery, charger, landing gear, manual, instructional DVD.)

Features
  • Revolutionary Anti-Crash Technology, exclusive to HobbyZone, which actively monitors the plane’s orientation, as it relates to the ground and sky, and cuts the motor, in tandem with giving neutral steering and up elevator, if the plane enters a steep dive. This causes the plane to come out of the dive so the user can regain control. Once pilots gain experience flying, they can increase maneuverability and overall control by turning ACT off via the switch on the transmitter
  • A 3-channel radio system that makes it easier for pilots who are new to RC to teach themselves how to fly with a 3-channel airplane, thanks to ACT. Additionally, the third channel allows for pitch control so that pilots can make tighter turns and have a wider range of maneuvers, as well as the option to make pitch trim adjustments while the plane is in the air
  • A one-box purchase, which means that everything that’s needed to get flying comes in the box
  • A ready-to-fly design that allows users to get in the air quickly after simply attaching the wing pieces and landing gear, and installing the rechargeable 7-cell 8.4V 900mAh Ni-MH battery pack
  • A two-piece, plug-in wing that provides better handling in the wind, smoother flight, easier transportation, and a sleek, swept-wing design
  • X-Port™ technology that allows pilots to use exciting plug-in accessories, such as the Sonic Combat Module™ to dog fight with other X-Port-equipped planes, the Aerial Drop Module™ to drop bombs or a parachutist, or the Night Flight Module™ to fly at night after they’ve become more experienced
  • A powerful 480 motor that permits users to have great climb rate and power while flying their Firebird Freedom
  • Durable, steel wire pushrods for more precise and consistent control
  • A detailed instruction manual and video CD that instruct pilots on the proper techniques and steps that need to be taken to get their Firebird Freedom in the air and flying safely
  • A 1.2 amp variable rate DC peak charger, with LED indicator and trickle charge
  • A soft, resilient rubber nose that cushions the force of impact and decreases damage if the pilot has a hard landing
Overview

Three Channels, Zone 1, Anti-Crash Technology –
New Pilots Get It All with the HobbyZone Firebird Freedom

HobbyZone recently announced plans for the first new plane in 2005 - the Firebird Commander™ 2, with revolutionary Anti-Crash Technology™ (ACT). Another plane will be available soon with ACT, as well – the Firebird Freedom™. This plane will make it easier for new pilots to teach themselves how to fly with a 3-channel system, and then progress on to other larger and faster RC planes in the HobbyZone and ParkZone product lines. Additionally, X-Port technology makes the options for fun endless!

With this plane come many exciting firsts for HobbyZone, which raise the bar for teach-yourself-to-fly, ready-to-fly RC planes:
• A 3-channel radio system in a Zone 1 airplane;
• Anti-Crash Technology in a 3-channel airplane;
• A 2-piece, mid-set, swept, plug-in wing; and
• Rigid, steel wire pushrods to more precisely manipulate the control surfaces.
