I’ve always loved A-10s. This airplane is a blast. It’s powered just right to have fun with, using the suggested 2s 800 mah lipo battery. The unique sound is what you would imagine a mosquito this size to make, but a lot louder.
This is a Bind-n-Fly (BNF) airplane, meaning that you need only a transmitter and a battery for the airplane to fly it. All of the onboard electronics are in place and ready to fly on this airplane.
You will need to beef up the fuselage on this plane. The section forward of the wing is very thin and the first time you have a hard landing one of the sides will likely cave in a bit. Fixing it is easy enough, but beefing this area up with clear tape is suggested. I also put a foam cross member just forward of where the battery goes. You can see it in the picture. This went a long way to shore up the sides.
This plane is lots of fun. The ASX3 receiver in it helps you fly it. It’s very easy to fly really. I don’t use the wheels. I hand launch it with my left hand with my right thumb on the elevator/aileron stick. I generally end up in full up position on launch. It dives toward the ground but always recovers. From there, just hang on!
