    Freewing JAS 39 Gripen 80mm EDF Jet - PNP
    Click image for larger version  Name:	mastera.jpg Views:	52 Size:	80.4 KB ID:	271256





    The JAS 39 Gripen’s unique delta wing and canard configuration endows it with excellent agility, most notably a tighter turning radius than the American F-16! Flown by more than a dozen NATO countries, the Gripen is a Mach 2 multi-role fighter whose 25 year service history continues onward with distinction.

    Freewing has raised the bar again for RC foam electric delta winged jets with the JAS 39 Gripen. This jet is precisely modeled for scale fidelity and practical RC performance, and assembles in minutes including pre-installed electronics and LED lighting. Powered by our popular 80mm 9-blade Inrunner EDF and a 100A ESC, the Freewing Gripen is designed for power! At ~1/9 scale and 1613mm/63” in length, the Freewing Gripen is longer than its predecessor, the Freewing Typhoon/Eurofighter. Referencing the full size Gripen’s short take-off capabilities, the Freewing Gripen is optimized for short take-offs and surviving unkempt landing strips.

    Recommended for intermediate to advanced skill level pilots, the Freewing Gripen offers the power, size and speed of a 90mm super scale jet, in a lighter, faster, and more economical 80mm EDF Series package. Full-functioning canards enable high agility, and full-coverage gear doors improve the airframe’s overall aerodynamics.

    Visit our Coming Soon section to Pre-Order today!
    Impressive Size


    Measuring over 63” long, the Freewing Gripen delivers powerhouse performance in a field-friendly size. A 12” removable nosecone makes transportation a breeze!
    High Scale Fidelity


    Fly the world’s first electric Gripen with all the “bells and whistles” of larger EDF class sizes. Lights, suspensions struts, full-coverage gear doors, and optional upgrade paths!
    Full Function Canards


    A rarity in the RC EDF Jet world, full function canards give you full command of the Freewing Gripen’s exhilarating flight envelope in both pitch and roll!
    Pre-Installed LED Lighting



    The Freewing Gripen features pre-installed DayBright LED Lighting out-of-the-box, using red and green position lights and a bright white landing light.
    Inrunner Power!


    Achieve top speeds above 170kph/105mph with our popular and powerful 1920kv brushless Inrunner power system and 9 blade reinforced EDF unit!
    Grass-Ready Retracts


    Durable aluminum suspension struts are concealed by full-coverage landing gear doors for optimal aerodynamics. All-new specially designed trailing link main struts soak up rough runways with ease.
    A Century of Service


    True-to-life “Heritage” markings commemorate the Czech Air Force’s 100th Anniversary, having fought from 1918-2018 alongside the Allies from World War 2 to various NATO Coalition conflicts to the present day.

    Honor the past to preserve the future!
    Upgradeable

                My #1 request.

                So excited, even though it required me to upgrade my radio and spend another few hundred just to fly it.

                        I want to have everything ready to turbine conversion this jet when I get it could you measure out the battery tray for me so I could get a custom tank made? And how far back dose it go? Is it like the 39 that has a long empty cavity to put a fuel tank?

                                  the mig is absolutely sweet, but it just wasn't for me. I've actually sworn off buying planes for the year, but I have been asking for either a Saab (didn't care which) or a 1600 BF109 for so long that if I didn't order this, I wouldn't be a man of my word. If I don't hold up my end, then companies like motion will just keep pumping out the same stuff that's already on the market, over and over and over. I'm happy to help prove that more than just P-51s sell.

                                  Mine is on it's way to Washington state, cheers.

                                    There were 700 people in the Live Chat at its peak, so I missed that comment. Who said it? Kudos for making me laugh out loud!
