Freewing A-10 Thunderbolt II Twin 64mm EDF Jet High Performance Edition in Gray - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ10612P

Northrop Grumman A-10

This is the NEW High Performance edition of the famous close air support A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known as the "Warthog" or "Tank Killer" available exclusively at Motion RC. This is the heavily upgraded version of the Freewing A-10. Some of the upgrades include 12-blade EDFs, electronic retracts, metal gear servos, 4S battery capability, dual 40A ESCs, and high-speed 2836-3300KV motors. Typical to Freewing quality, this plane looks amazing and flies steady and fast. The twin 12-blade EDFs produce amazing realistic jet engine sound, while giving it plenty of power for high speed maneuvers, and the the wide wingspan allows stable flight at slow speeds. The main wings are also flaps ready, just add two 9g servos and you can experience shorter take-off distances and slower speed landings with the flaps deployed. Many customers have asked Motion RC to bring a high quality A-10 to the market, and we believe the Freewing A-10 is the perfect choice.

Freewing A-10

After four flights, this is a nice plane. Flaps do make the landings easier. I was going to land on grass (wheels-up), but the verticals hang too low, and it would be very difficult. I fly without the weapons on the wings. Once off the runway, the two fans have enough power to fly at about 2/3 throttle. Worth the money, good quality, and I'm thinking of buying the 80mm A-10. This is not a beginners plane, but it doesn't seem to have any bad flying traits.

freewing A-10 Thunderbolt II

Very nice model. Optional flaps not necessary for great landings, but fun to try if you’ve not had them on a small EDF. I fly off a asphalt runway and the gear is excellent as is for that type of surface. The recommended 3600 ma battery is fine for my flying style and keeps weight down. Ordinance: I use only a of couple of the missles to reduce drag. A really fun plane that is easy to fly if you’re just getting into EDFs and very capable if you are a more a advanced EDF pilot.

A 10 assembly

It was fairly easy but the flaps could have a better way of putting the horns on should have little screws with a back plate the glue doesn't work come unglued just glad I wasn't flying the plane yet. I going to bolt them in but overall great plane

Freewing A-10 64mm EDF W/12 Blade impeller

Great scale looking aircraft, easy to set up. Strongly recomend adding flaps from the get go only aids to your total enjoyment factor. No need to gripe about long roll outs on takeoffs or coming in to hot on landings ...real planes have them for a reason, same applies to scale model aircraft. This aircraft is a pleasure to set up and fly. I highly recommend this airframe for intermediate skill level RC pilots.

Beautiful Plane

Awesome plane for the price! Just a few bugs, ADD THE FLAPS!!!! Im giving this a 5 star rating even though it took a bit of tuning and such. The nose of the plane were the front landing gear is supported is a weak and I strengthened it with some wooden rods and glue and it worked fantastic. The plane flies great and looks great otherwise! Landing is tough but way easier with flaps, I would suggest getting metal gear servos for the flaps.

This EDF is a tank and flies great!

First I would like to say the shipping was amazingly fast on this plane. I ordered it on a Friday and wanted 3 day shipping and got in the next Monday. How that happened I have no idea but it was awesome. The wing has some very minor defects from shipping but I just fixed it with the blow dryer and some bending. This plane is very durable as well. When I first flew it I had to trim the **** out of her to get her to fly straight but after that is was very nice. I say it’s durable because as I was coming in landing on the maiden gave her to much rudder and it caused a wingtip stall. She went nose first into concrete from about 15 feet up and just had some minor nose damage and a rear stabilizer was broken off if you can believe it. Crazy but that was the only damage. An easy fix. The next day I went out and she flew very nice and the landing was a breeze. Nice soft landing gear makes her not even bounce with a good approach. I have not added flaps but I have the servos coming to add them. This EDF can fly very fast and very slow which is really nice. You will have plenty of power from the twin 2836-3300’a KV motors. I flew mine with 3600 mah lipos and the CG is dead on. Enjoy this great flyer.

Great Value

Excellent scaled warbird flight experience. A lot of plane for the money. Definitely need a battery with 50C+. I installed the flap servos. Found I needed blemderm tape on the upper surface hinge line due to the thin foam. Not a problem, just plan on using some tape to strengthen the hinge line.

A10 64mm

Got the admiral 3600 today, Sunday, and took her out. Took off evenly without flaps. Landed in 3 minutes with no gear problems. Will lower aileron throws 5 percent for second flight. Sounds good looks good, I am looking forward to next flight.
