Product Information

With the E-flite® F-14 Tomcat Twin 40mm EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) jet, more pilots can enjoy flying a replica of the iconic fighter than ever before! Developed for the U.S. Navy, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat made its first deployment in 1974 aboard the USS Enterprise, replacing the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. This E-flite model is based on the F-14D Super Tomcat variant and the factory-applied finish pays homage to Strike Fighter Squadron 2 (VFA-2), also known as the famous "Bounty Hunters". During its 2002-2003 deployment — the final cruise with the Tomcat — VF-2 participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom flying reconnaissance, close air support, CAP and strike missions. The F-14 Tomcat Twin 40mm EDF recreates the VF-2 fighter down to the functional variable-sweep wings and full-flying stabs to deliver an authentic and unique flying experience. It's scaled to be practical for more pilots to fly and afford because it's compatible with popular 4S 2200mAh batteries. Plus it's equipped with exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies — making it easier to fly than any other TOPGUN Tomcat EDF model yet!

Many RC pilots have dreamed of flying an F-14 one day — and the E-flite® F-14 Tomcat Twin 40mm EDF makes that dream a reality! It arrives fully-assembled and nearly ready to fly right out of the box including a factory-installed receiver with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies. It's ready to bind to your 6+ channel DSMX®/DMS2® equipped computer transmitter, plus you'll receive real-time telemetry data including battery voltage, current, motor RPM and more via compatible Spektrum AirWare™ equipped radios. The twin 40mm fans and brushless outrunner motors are compatible with affordable and common 4S 2200mAh 30+C batteries to deliver an excellent blend of performance and flight times. Full-flying stabs and functional 3-position variable-sweep wings deliver an incomparable flying experience you can't get anywhere else. The fully-moulded EPO airframe is durable, lightweight, and factory-finished to pay tribute to the U.S. Navy's VF-2 "Bounty Hunters" squadron. The fixed landing gear plus steerable nose wheel makes it easy to taxi, takeoff and land on smooth surfaces — or remove the landing gear for more speed and vertical performance when hand launching over and landing on grass. With the F-14 Tomcat Twin 40mm EDF you're closer to being a TOPGUN than ever before!
