A-10 Thunderbolt II "Warthog" Super Scale Twin 80mm EDF Jet from Freewing - PNP - FJ31111P

Northrop Grumman A-10

Renowned by its crews and the men and women it has protected on the ground for decades, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, affectionately called the ‘Warthog’, continues to dominate the skies on CAS missions in conflict areas around the world. Despite first flying over 40 years ago, the A-10’s superior ability to execute its intended mission in modern warfare remains unchallenged.

To honor this iconic aircraft we are very proud to announce the world’s largest and most definitive foam electric PNP A-10 Thunderbolt RC model aircraft in the world! Powered by twin 80mm EDFs, this 1700mm wingspan beast is larger than any other foam A-10 on the market, yet it remains easy to transport. The Freewing 80mm A-10 delivers the best balance between size, weight, thrust, top speed, stall speed, transportability, rough grass handling, and overall scale fidelity. As an added bonus we've included a full complement of highly detailed weapons in the box; a $50 value!

The model is assembled from just ten main parts. Removable wings and a convenient flexible servo wire harness accessible at the wing root ensures a safe and reliable electronic connection at all times. The A-10’s wings are composed of hollow chambered foam with an interlocking matrix of plywood ribs, carbon square spars, and aluminum blocks, providing rigid yet supple handling.

The Freewing 80mm A-10 was specifically designed to be the most grass-capable PNP EDF on the market. While sporting a scale Oleo nose strut, the main struts are tensioned trailing links and the foam rubber tires are over 3” tall and 1” wide. In the air, the A-10’s all-new power system delivers a fully scale flight profile. Tall vertical loops, hard “jinking” turns, stable slow flight, and authoritative power. Critically, this model was designed to fly at all throttle points, both upright and inverted, without pitch sensitivity. 

As a semi-scale model, the Freewing 80mm A-10 is finished from the factory in USAF two tone gray. A waterslide decal set with over 50 utility markings and three complete A-10 liveries, is included for the pilot to customize his or her A-10. These decals proudly represent Indiana’s 163rd Fighter Squadron “Blacksnakes”, Louisiana’s 47th Fighter Squadron “Termites” and Georgia’s 23rd Fighter Group “Flying Tigers.”  (Artwork courtesy of Boom and Zoom Graphics).

Just wow

Bought this plane sometime in January I just got around to flying it I waited for the right day 4 perfect flights 2 good landings 2 slightly bouncy but the gear held up fine Transports very easy breaks apart in 5 minutes my only gripe is 8 5000s go quick so it's not what I call a main flier unless one has a generator and charger to bring to the field All in all it's faster than the f4 seems that way anyhow For me it's a special day plane well worth the investment

Great Plane....not for the Faint of heart

GOOD.....Quality and build are A++, Went together quick with no fitment issues. Flight dynamics and characteristics are great, its nice and big, you can see it well unless the grey blends in with the background. It is quite fast, and gets a long way away if your not paying attention. Very, Very Stable, clean or with all the armament. Not a beginners plane for sure, but a great 1st DF Jet. CG and control set up is paramount for first flight success. keep on the ground as long as you can, then gentle up elevator, and its awesome. Flight time is right at 5 minutes with 2 6s 5000MaH Batteries. It draws a crowd, and is always a favorite of Military members who were under cover by this beautiful aircraft. BAD....Front landing gear is the week link in the entire kit....Its advertised as a grass capable plane, I fly off of asphalt with a few bumps and a few dry lake beds, anything but a perfect landing will introduce a porpoise event, and bad things will happen. Changes to CG don't seem to make any difference. Both batteries sit on top of the front gear, that's a little over 3lbs on the front gear, just in battery weight. They are supported only with plastic and foam. No Ply or carbon fiber re-enforcement, and no other supports. I have replaced the front gear twice. Used Ren Weld to reinforce things, but now, if something else happens, I will have to buy a new fuselage. Enjoy!!!!

Freewing A10

Very Good model, easy to assemble and a very stable flyer. A location sheet for the decals would be a great help.
