JAS 39 Gripen 80mm EDF Jet - ARF PLUS from Freewing - FJ21811AP

Version Info: This is the ARF+ version for pilots who wish to install their own power system. All primary electronics including servos and landing gear come pre-installed, just add your own power system (EDF, motor, and ESC) to begin flying.

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.
