Another A-10 conversion and Nitroplanes Warthog

I just completed my project "another A-10 Warthog brushless conversion".
And I thought I'd pop by here an post my pics, and at the top of the page is an ad for an RTF A-10 from Nitroplanes for $79 (reg $299?!).

I started from the GWS sloper for $35 at the LHS. And I got all the running gear from HobbyKing for super prices. I just had my first kitchen taxi test (complete with the wife's voice over "OK its on. And how do I take the picture? It's a movie dear, you're recording now. Oh... :-)
A 10 Warthog GWS brushless conv taxi test (0 min 25 sec)

Anyway its taken me over 2 years (moved once, started new job, have no room to build in apt...) I'm almost afraid to fly it.. so I thought maybe I should by one of the RTF A-10's for sale from Nitroplanes - as a back up?

Here's some pics of my effort, and a pic of the RTF - not too much different except mine weighs flying wt - 29.9 0zs. with aluminum shock absorber landing gear, and 1450 mAh battery (wt 140 gms).

Can't wait to test fly it. I have two Turnigy 4400 kV motors and over 400 watts.
