Freewing are excited to announce our all-new 2019 F-35 Lightning
II! To bring this model fully into the modern EDF era, we started
from the ground up and redesigned a completely new mold for
Freewing's most popular 70mm jet over the past decade. Now powered
by an inrunner motor and 12 blade 70mm EDF, the 2019 F-35 is
larger, faster, more accurate, more powerful, and more easy to fly
than Freewing's older 2010 version. Fly into 2020 with the best
foam electric F-35 in the world!
The exterior shape of the model features the highest level of scale
fidelity of any electric F-35 on the market. A correct nose shape,
tail group, sharpened stealthy facets, and the telltale RAM
paneling throughout the aircraft are all precisely modeled. Thin
and shallow panel lines, a very intricate paint job with over 15
paint molds, and multi-color factory-applied decals combine to
create a very realistic effect.
Even the facted EOTS sensor under the removable magnetic nose cone
is recreated in tinted plastic. Our all-new 2019 Freewing 70mm F-35
Lightning II proudly wears the tail flash of EF-01, the first F-35,
to commemorate the men and women who continue to operate EF-01 at
Edwards Air Force Base in California to this day.
For pilots wanting to fly a modern generation aircraft with similar
flight characteristics to our popular Freewing 90mm F-22 but at
significantly lower operating cost, the Freewing 70mm F-35 is an
excellent choice. Having gathered feedback from many customers
about Freewing's nine year old F-35, we improved all major
components of the aircraft.
First, the model is made of EPO instead of EPS foam. Second, it is
slightly larger, features a stronger power system, and incorporates
a wing spar and detachable wings, compared to the old model which
was small, 4s powered, and didn't have a wing spar for its glue-on
wings. Third, we relocated the battery hatch to the top of the
aircraft to give easy access in a generously sized battery bay to
modern receivers, gyros, and flight battery.
Say goodbye to frustratingly undersized plastic hatches under the
fuselage. Third, the model features a no-glue assembly, and all
flying surfaces attach via screws for easy transport, servicing,
The all-new 2019 Freewing 70mm F-35 Lightning II also incorporates
two important functional improvements. To provide reliable grass
operation, this model includes pre-installed electric landing gear
with aluminum suspension struts. Oleo mains and a trailing-link
nose help absorb the shock of rough landings or taxing through
And secondly, the full flying horizontal stabilizers feature an
integrated plastic-to-plastic hinge joint that is durable to
withstand 100+mph speeds. Older F-35s were known were weak landing
gear and weak elevators, so both of these areas were completely
redesigned to deliver the level of performance our customers expect
from our EDFs in these modern times.
Optimized as a modern 70mm jet trainer, this model is ideal for
pilots wanting to step into the world of EDF jets and learn
essential skills before they advance into larger aircraft in our
80mm and 90mm series. Learn coordinated turns with the rudders and
ailerons, get used to throttle management throughout the aircraft's
full acrobatic flight envelope, and practice perfect landings on
the suspension struts.
One of the advantages of the F-35's 6s power system and larger size
is that it uses the same 6s 4000mAh and 5000mAh batteries that our
80mm and 90mm EDFs use, so those batteries can remain in your fleet
and be shared across many model aircraft. The F-35's inrunner power
