Note, this listing is for the black playboy version of the F-14.
A model builders and jet pilots dream!
This F-14 includes a fully operational folding wing, just like the real jet, plus we have included twin 60mm ducted fans each with 2 style of blades, a 3 blade for 5,000kv motors and a 5 blade for 4500kv motors. Both sets of blades (4 in total) are included with the kit so you can choose your motor type and power level. This model also has striking high quality details and water decals, making it as impressive to see on the ground as it is to fly!
This jet has been supplied in kit form because it's a modellers product and a fun build, you will need two 26 size inrunner motors, Lipoly battery, esc's and servos to make it fly. It will take you 1 or 2 evenings to complete this model.
The Ducted Fan units included with this model are of a high quality and dynamically balanced.
You simply cannot find a better EDF Jet for anything close to this price.

READ THIS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE
This plane is quite large. The box size is almost at the size limit for international postage. If you order this model, please do not try to order other large items that we cannot place inside this planes existing box. Smaller items, such as an ESC, screw wire or battery can be purchased with this plane and we will modify the box slightly to accomodate small additional items.
Beautiful straightforward airframe. I used two Dons Wicked 4400kv motors and a 4S 3300 pack. Flew great until I came out of a high speed dive and it went in, not sure why yet but I came right home and ordered another. This is one fun project and the 2nd is always better than the 1st!Got the grey version. Quite a challenge to build but it flies realistically. I also bought the black bunny but I will power it with 3200kv 4s EDF units.opened up the motor compartments to fit 64mm fans with 8 blades each retracts all the bells and whistles. this plane is so heavy it wouldn't get off the ground i finally coaxed it to get up for about 4 seconds and when i set it back down it bent all three struts and broke all three wheels. this plane is a piece of crap. The foam sucks im not sure what type of foam it is but its not epo which it needs to be im about to drop a 4s 2650mah in and see what happens. if it still sucks im get it up as high as i can and nose dive the damn thing into the ground & never buy from you guys again.fantastico un po complesso da montare senza istruzionii just bought this model, awsome model, lightning delivery, but 2 left elevons & rudder paint fadded, but overall, awsome item hk, amazing sizeWhat about the landing gear? Seems to be a little bit fragile to me. Anybody has a tip on how make them more strength?Super jet. Attention au centre de gravit lors de la fermeture des ailes. Il faut avanc un peu la batterie. Prevoir une ouverture en plus en avant des turbines afin d'augment l'admission d'air. Gain de puissance. Support train atterrissage un peu fragile atterrir avec douceur ou train rentrI Love this plane.... Its my first.... and yeh its as described(a modellers dream) Its quite labourious and you will need to have a dremel for a few clean up spots and theres quite a bit of electrical work to do!!! But its awesome and I think its just one of those projects that ya dont rush and get it right... After all its a Tomcat!!! Ive fitted nav lights, ailerons and retracts to mine too... I used the 2836 edf combo on mine(fans can be dremel fitted, or just use the motor/esc combo) and the 12kg servo is TowerproMG946R which works a treat(with some dremmel to the foam)... Make sure you get some servo extensions and also some battery wire as its quite long.... I just bought the servo wire by the metre and the futaba plugs to make my own extensions.... this is a great jet peeps... factory landing gear is weak as!!! get something aftermarket!!!
PS I Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!Actually the model is very nice but be careful because he was anxious that my come and when it finally came came broken and missing some items.
Plane flys nice and easy with the wings open. Super easy landings and floats forever. Wings back, she will roll really fast!
Easy build, just follow the directions!
Open cheaters on the top to get the power she needs and you will be very happy!
One last thing, there is no ventilation for the battery compartment. My batteries have gotten hot and I saw recently a fire in one Tomcat. Ive added ventilation holes and it has seemed to help.
