Freewing F9F Panther 64mm TrueFire LED Afterburner

Regular price $39.99

Afterburner works with the latest 4S version of the plane with motor PN 2840-2550. Will not work with the previous 3S version. 


TrueFire - Random flickering from 30% to 50% throttle to simulate the afterburner lighting/turning on. From 50% throttle to 100% throttle the afterburner gets brighter with full brightness at 100% throttle. 

Select-A-Fire - adjust the throttle position where the main Orange LED turns on.  The ability to turn on and off the flickering effect is also provided. 

No additional radio (TX) programming is required for the Flicker effect. This is a plug and play system. 

Includes a 3D printed motor mount, 20" extension wiring from controller to LED, connection to a 4S battery balance port and receiver. 

An integrated Y cable is provided with the controller to split the throttle signal from the receiver (RX) and provide it to the afterburner controller and the ESC. 

The controller itself weighs 18g. 

Afterburner mount with LEDs weighs 21g. 

The dimension listed is for the outside diameter of the motor. See photos for more information. Installation instructions:

Installation instructions:

1) Remove the motor per the manual instructions. 

2) Position the afterburner mount to the EDF assembly. You will need to glue the afterburner mount to the EDF assembly. Make sure that there is sufficient clearance between the motor and the afterburner mount. CA glue works well. Use activator to reduce the set and dry time. 

3) In order to place the motor and afterburner in the fuselage you will need to remove foam from the fuselage. See the pictures for more information. 

4) Route the LED wire to the battery compartment.

5) Connect the LED wire to the Flicker LED controller.

6) Connect the ESC lead to the Y splitter. One end goes to the receiver throttle port and one to the Flicker LED controller Throttle connection. 

7) Connect the Flicker LED controller Battery connector to the balance lead of the battery. 

8) Power on the plane and the transmitter. Make sure your plane is secure prior to adding throttle input. Give it throttle and enjoy the Flicker! It gets really good around 30% throttle input. 

Additional information - we have had good success with increasing the afterburner effect by lining the exhaust ports with Nashua light weight duct tape (Flexfix UL181B-FX). Home Depot carries it for $15 a roll and it will last you a life time.

We are using the brightest and lightest weight LEDs we can source that fit the smaller form factor of the 64mm EDFs. The duct tape helps increase the intensity of the LEDs.
