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).

Superior A-10

This is my second one as I sold the first only because I needed funds for a giant scale model. I always missed it. Now that she’s back I am thrilled. Maiden was so smooth I forgot how great of a flyer it is. I did order the upgrade struts to reduce any chance of the dreaded bucking bronco landings on pavement. This award-winning model is still moly superb all around.

Great model except landing gear

The model is great and fun to fly but be prepared to a bounce landing if you fly on paved grass. Need change with upgrade wheels and for a model of 650€ is not good. Beautiful on the ground and in the air. Flies like a trainer.

FPV Version

I fly my A-10 only via camera. She is super stable and handles well. You can truly feel her weight. Easy to slow down in the final but requires a good flair. I broke my nose gear off and got now the trailing link spare (thanks MotionRC!) - perfect for my grass operation. There is quite a delay in the elevator when close to stall speed (yes normal but she has it more than others). Lots of room for the FPV gear and virtually no noise in the picture from the EDF's. I get surprising long flights out of this beauty. A great FPV plane and so easy to fly! https://youtu.be/Sn1Hnnhmhdo

Love the quality of this plane. The only drawback is the sensitive paint job. Any regular tape cannot be used for masking without lifting the paint from the foam. Found a tech pique that will work but not after a lot of discussion on hobbysquawk.

This plane is just BIG. Tough to carry fully armed. It is a great flying plane. You can yank and bank all day. It looks great flying by the pits. One bad servo was replaced for me. Another very well done aircraft.

BIG A-10 masterpiece

This jet is super detailed and looks great in the air or on the ground. Tons of power and more speed than I would expect from such a draggy airplane. Fly's very light even though it has some weight to it. The sound of the twin EDF's are very distinct. Very fun airplane to fly right on the deck. No bad habits or surprises from this bird, just a lot of spectators in awe. Lands like a trainer. I love this big warbird.

Simply awesome plane

This is an amazingly detailed plane and with the recommended settings I didn't have to change anything. Everyone at the field stopped and watched every time I flew. I've started doing the super detailing on it.

Beautiful A10

Excellent quality but waiting on batteries before I can fly. I’m sure it will be a 10+ also. Customer service is always very good as well.
