Freewing 80mm 12-Blade EDF A-4E/F Skyhawk Jet - (Plug-N-Play) - PNP - FJ21311P

The A-4 Skyhawk commands a beloved place in aviation history. Designed by the famed Ed Heinemann for Douglas Aircraft in the 1950s, the A-4 was optimized as a multi-role aircraft that used its low weight, high maneuverability, and straightforward reliability to lethal advantage. Despite absorbing the highest combat loss rate in the Vietnam War, A-4 crews fearlessly executed their missions with bravery and valor.  The Skyhawk’s nearly 70 year history of distinguished service and its continued operation to this day is testament to the timelessness of “Heinemann’s Hotrod.”

To honor this beloved aircraft, Freewing and Motion RC proudly offer the Freewing 80mm A-4E/F Skyhawk! The biggest mass produced foam electric PNP A-4 in the world, this flying model is powered by a 3530-1850kv brushless outrunner motor and 12 blade EDF ducted fan, achieving a top speed of 95 mph/150kph using the recommended 6s 4000mAh-5000mAh battery. Nearly the same scale as Freewing’s popular MiG-21, Freewing’s A-4 is part of our “big 80” series and like the MiG-21 was designed to accommodate a wide range of battery sizes. See the comparison photo with our Freewing twin 80mm F-14 to get a sense of the A-4’s overall displacement!

The Freewing 80mm A-4E/F Skyhawk features all new fold-and-twist retracts, with durable aluminum trailing link struts for confident operation on rough grass runways. Removable wings, flexible wing wire harnesses, and a magnetic nose cone enable quick takedown for easy transportation. In addition to the A-4’s overall scale profile fidelity, other scale details include plastic split flaps, plastic arrestor hook and cannon barrels, and plastic intakes. A complete ordnance package is also included, featuring detachable magnetic fuel tanks and AGM-12 Bullpup missiles and outer pylons, and a removable refueling probe. Plastic underside plates protect the wingtips from scratches, and the plastic capped magnetic nose cone reduces damage in the event of a nose over. The ultimate in PNP convenience, only twelve screws and one glue joint complete the primary assembly of the aircraft. Brass ball links, reliable control hardware, and digital servos provide positive control as you dominate the skies in your ‘Scooter’!

Adding to the model’s visual versatility, the later version avionics “hump” is also included! Attach this magnetic “hump” onto the fuselage’s upper spine to change between two variants of the Skyhawk. Two complete waterslide decal sets are also included, depicting a US Navy A-4 from VA-22 and a US Marines A-4 from VMA-311. Fly either of these with pride, or personalize you’re A-4 with another livery of your choosing! We worked with her to ensure her decal sets match our Freewing 80mm A-4’s proportions.

We recommend the Freewing 80mm A-4E/F Skyhawk for Intermediate pilots and above with prior experience on other Freewing 80mm EDF jets, operating on paved or short cut grass runways. Flying with full ordnance and the avionics hump gives pilots a different experience than flying fully clean, so we encourage pilots to try all configurations and see what best suits their flying style. We prefer flying without the draggy fuel tanks, but with the Bullpup missiles, both for “cool” factor and for orientation. In the air, the Freewing A-4 is a balance between the Freewing F-86 and the Freewing Mirage –easy to fly yet quick to disappear! The A-4’s wing has been optimized for balanced handling and a mild stall. Like a typical delta wing, the A-4 bleeds speed in turns, and has a very fast and axial roll rate. Flaps are not needed for smooth rotation takeoffs or slow landings. See the manual for flap-to-elevator mixing to bring in your Skyhawk slow and slightly nose high for perfect landings every time! Having been developed over several years, we endeavored to create an accessible A-4 that looks the part yet is user-friendly. We think you’ll be very pleased with the result!

Thank you to the pilots and crews of this magnificent aircraft!
