The A-4 Skyhawk commands a beloved place in aviation history. Designed by the famed Ed Heinemann for Douglas Aircraft in the 1950s, the A-4 was optimized as a multi-role aircraft that used its low weight, high maneuverability, and straightforward reliability to lethal advantage. The Skyhawk’s nearly 70 year history of distinguished service and its continued operation to this day is testament to the timelessness of “Heinemann’s Hotrod.”
To honor this beloved aircraft we proudly offer the Freewing 80mm A-4E/F Skyhawk! The biggest mass produced foam electric A-4 in the world, this flying model is powered by a 3658-2150Kv inrunner motor and 12 blade EDF ducted fan, achieving a top speed of 95 mph/150kph using the recommended 6s 5000mAh battery. See the comparison photo with our Freewing twin 80mm F-14 to get a sense of the A-4’s overall displacement!
The Freewing 80mm A-4E/F Skyhawk features all new fold-and-twist retracts, with durable aluminum trailing link struts for confident operation on rough grass runways. Removable wings, flexible wing wire harnesses, and a magnetic nose cone enable quick takedown for easy transportation. In addition to the A-4’s overall scale profile fidelity, other scale details include plastic split flaps, plastic arrestor hook and cannon barrels, and plastic intakes. A complete ordnance package is also included, featuring detachable magnetic fuel tanks and AGM-12 Bullpup missiles and outer pylons, and a removable refueling probe. The ultimate in PNP convenience, only twelve screws and one glue joint complete the primary assembly of the aircraft. Brass ball links, reliable control hardware, and digital servos provide positive control as you dominate the skies in your ‘Scooter’!
Adding to the model’s visual versatility, the later version avionics “hump” is also included! Attach this magnetic “hump” onto the fuselage’s upper spine to change between two variants of the Skyhawk. A waterslide decal set is pre-applied, depicting a US Navy A-4 from VA-22.
We recommend the Freewing 80mm A-4E/F Skyhawk for Intermediate pilots and above with prior experience on other Freewing 80mm EDF jets, operating on paved or short cut grass runways. Flying with full ordnance and the avionics hump gives pilots a different experience than flying fully clean, so we encourage pilots to try all configurations. We prefer flying without the draggy fuel tanks, but with the Bullpup missiles, both for “cool” factor and for orientation. In the air, the Freewing A-4 is a balance between the Freewing F-86 and the Freewing Mirage –easy to fly yet quick to disappear! Like a typical delta wing, the A-4 bleeds speed in turns, and has a very fast and axial roll rate. See the manual for flap-to-elevator mixing to bring in your Skyhawk slow and slightly nose high for perfect landings every time!
