I really have no idea what the AUW of this A10 actually is..
Based on experienced it 'feels' a bit heavy and I have not tried at what speed it will stall and so on. Will try that later so landings at a littlebit lower speed will be possible.
I would really recommend the EDF55 instead of the 50's, I presume these 50's will not provide enough thrust for a 'pleasant' flight. Some power left over with the 55's will sometime get in handy if you have to make an overshoot whilst trying to land, just like jets on a aircraft carrier.
Even if possible try to get your hands on the EDF55-300 instead of 150's.
These slightly bigger motors wil be more able to handle the currents on the coils and so on. When I give full throttle and you look at the back-end at the motors you see the motors lit up with sparkles, wich is not very good for a long lifetime of these engines. Thats why I throttle back after start.
Stick to the max voltage for these motors too, or else you will burn 'm up
