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

Looks Great the A10 64mm EDF
Good value for money. Flies great and looks good in the air considering it's size. Most of my flying is done off a grass strip and so far l have had no issues with the take-off's. Never added the flaps and have had no problems with take-off or landing. My A10 was flown with a 4000 4's and l could achieve around 4 minutes flying at half throttle.
This is my second Freewing A-10. The first one flew well for several flights. The last flight, while I was turning right to the runway, the right aileron servo locked-up (full right), and the plane rolled right into the ground. When I received the first A-10, the nose steering servo was d.o.a., and I replaced it before the first flight. Although both A-10's are well worth the money, I find them slightly underpowered. I'm using a 2700(4s) battery and the CG is fine. These are nice planes, but use a lot of runway to get airborne. Once in the air they fly fine. I definitely need to use flaps to stop on the runway. I highly recommend this A-10, but now I would like to purchase the larger 80mm version.
Great looks, not as much functionality.
Packaging is great. Everything arrived in good shape. Instructions were decent when common sense is applied. My disappointment came with the extra flap set up along with ordinance. I had to modify the pushrods to be able to work with the missiles. Setting up the flaps was pretty straightforward but my kit was missing some of the hardware specifically the screws for the control horns. Hopefully it will fly decently. Sure does look amazing with full ordnance!
Pay attention !!!
Make sure you BALANCE your plane !! ,it is rear heavy due to the design. Along with the battery (i use a 14.8 3000) PLUS about 1 ounce of weight in the nose...ALSO this is NOT a SLOW landing plane, keep up your air speed and make room for a lengthy approach. Other than that it's a looker and flies great !! IF you can get the larger version GET IT ! this one is good but the bigger version flies a little more realistic...Good luck and DO YOUR PRE FLIGHT CHECKS !!!!
A little disappointed
Like my title says I am a little disappointed in this model. The looks and bombs do look great. This model is very tail heavy and there is no room to mount your receiver. I had to cut out some foam under the pilot and remove him. This is the only way I have found to keep everything in order. I do not believe that any rc model should need modification out of the box to make it work....especially at this price point. I would not recommend this to a friend.
Fly's awesome. I usually don't do reviews but this plane deserves it.
The aircraft looks great. Fantastic scale details.
The weight is a little high in comparision to its size. This affords a high landing speed
Haven’t flown but just bonded it yesterday. Love retracts and can’t wait to fly. Thanks so much. P
FLYING THIS A-10 SINCE AUGUST 2014
Just wanted to comment that this amazing little jet has been flying for 4 1/2 years now! I have had absolutely no issues, everything is still stock, and working perfectly. I flew it two days ago, really a fun little jet and a pleasure to fly. Using the Admiral 3600MAH 4 cell as far forward as I can get it. No flaps. All ordinance and fuel tank installed. Purchased this jet from Motion, a fine company.
