Having recently developed an interest in electric
ducted-fan jets, I started casting about for an easy,
relatively inexpensive sport plane to get started.
I wanted a plane that would be easy to fly yet still
be fast and fairly aerobatic. I asked several friends
what would be a good introductory jet and a couple
of them pointed me to the Motion RC website
( motionrc.com), where a preorder had just been
opened for the Freewing Avanti S.
AT A GLANCE
Freewing Avanti S PNP

6S 4000–5000mAh LiPo
WHAT WE LIKE
+ Fast, easy assembly + Effective trailing-link gear struts for rough field use
+ Outstanding design features throughout
+ Good looks and great “jet” sound
;e low parts count and good fit
make for quick assembly. ;e bag of
small parts includes a tube of glue for
attaching the tinted plastic canopy to
the cockpit hatch.
