Default Freewing T-33 Shooting Star 80mm EDF Jet

These are my videos for the new Freewing T-33 Shooting Star 80mm EDF Jet.

Unboxing:

Maiden Flight:

Here are the review notes for this Freewing T-33 EDF Jet:

Pros:
- Parts and pieces come polybagged for protection
- High-end finish on the model
- Setup was basic and straight-forward
- Robust landing gear for grass friendly ops and hard landings
- New powerful and efficient 80mm in-runner 9-blade EDF setup
- Model officially licensed by Lockheed Martin
- Split flaps
- It was locked in the entire flight!

Cons:
- Missing paint on the back of the canopy
- The left main blew out of the wing on the third landing

That is awesome!

This is the Maiden Flight posted above featuring GoPro Footage from my head on my other YouTube channel. Listen to the very end after John stops recording to hear my unfiltered thoughts on the jet lol

This jet looks really cool. Love the profile of the T-33. Think it would be a good beginner jet? I've only flown Warbirds

Thanks. Yes, this would make an excellent first jet. It flies like an easy pattern plane. If you can fly a warbird you won’t have any problems. Here is a more recent video filmed with my Soloshot3:

The first thing I would rip out are those horrible draggy wing tip tanks, believe me, it will fly so much better with out them.

I agree, flies awesome with them, and it would not look nearly as cool without them
