Did the job
Quick way to get my A 10 back into the air. Good quality and good price. Easy to install nose gear, fan and esc. Wires for the elevators and rudder were preinstalled. Thanks Motion RC
If you look at my puchases the first 64mm A10 I bought was great. I crashed it and ordered stuff to fix it, 1 of the parts was a fusalage, its fine. I ordered another pnp 64mm A10 and in that pnp the fusalage was the tail was twisted so i took the fus that I ordered to fix the first one and still have I put it with the 2nd pnp kit. and i still have it in the box. i put the Twisted fus with all my other parts i ordered and with my first A10 and have it all put togaether but i wont fly it cause the tail being twisted. so i just ordered this last fus and its twisted too... its like they glued the halfs together offset... i can sent pics but i reall dont want to buy another one cause of this. id be willing to send both of them back and atleaste have a strait one sent?
It was a replacement for the A-10 that I did not land well.
Minor miss causes major headache
The fuselage was out of stock for at least 5 weeks. Finally, when it arrived, it appeared to be in good shape with no shipping damage and the paint scheme was intact. Since the fuselage I was replacing was in bad shape thanks to a loss of power landing, I was unable to compare the original one to the replacement. Everything went well on the rebuilding process until I noticed during the final check and adjustment of travel for the control surfaces, the nose gear and rudder were moving in opposite directions. Since they are on the same circuit the fault wasn't solvable by reversing the travel on my transmitter. After much looking at the original assembly directions which were no help because the pictures are poor quality and just thinking I realized the servo tray for the nose gear was put in backward causing the servo arm to be on the left side of the servo rather than the right and reversing the direction of travel. I pulled the tray and reversed it fixing the problem. This was very aggravating as it had to be done while the rest of the plane was already finished making the fix harder than it should have been. My guess is that this will be the same issue with other replacement fuselages and you should inspect them closely for this fault before shipping anymore of them!!
Included all the extra details that come with the full A-10.
Great plane, flies very nice and fast. Only thing to watch out for is because the mail wheels are small you need to fly from a smooth runway. As always Motion did a great job in shipping.
Time to replace the fuse
The A-10 has been one tough bird and stood up well to my abuses but but after several repairs it was time to replace it. I chatted with a MRC rep asking if it came with the nose wheel door and they could not tell me for sure and were not able to verify for me at the time but I ordered it anyway. Not only did it come with the nose gear door but it also had the complete canopy and rudder servo extension installed. Swapping everything over took me about 1 hour to complete. The colors matched my wing and stab and looks much better than what I had. Thanks MRC!
New fuse and wing puts me in the air with my A 10 again
Fuse came in great condition and with a canopy assembly. Even though the picture shows a canopy assembly with the fuselage the good people at Motion said there should not be one included with the fuse?? I am blessed to have two canopy assemblies now since I ordered one as a stand alone because I was initially told the fuse did not come with the canopy assy. Not a bad idea to have a backup since the canopy has a tendency to pop off on hard landings. Still trying to figure out how to land the A 10 without damage??
