Lost my aileron on the second flight. Did a spiral into the ground broke in 4 pieces. Where can i get a new fuse? The wing and the tail section is fine. Anybody else have this problem?

Hi Cyclops2,
Sorry for the late reply, I was abroad for a work course (in the US Chicago, btw very beautifull city!) and wasn't online for days.
I think the only place to get this plane (someone correct me if I'm wrong) is Nitroplanes and killerplanes. At nitroplanes they only have the RTF verion which is about $145 dessert storm and Grey army scheme and $155 The green camo scheme. At killer planes I think it's about $119 PNF in green camo scheme but you'll have to order a crashproof kit with it for at least $68 which will crank up the price naturally. So I think nitroplanes is the best deal right now. And the stock setup is just fine, believe me!

Ben.

Hi Kevin, I had the HK J35 pilot sitting around. It fits in the cockpit nice, just a little tall. So I trimmed d bottom off a little.

Anyone done this mod?
You have probably seen this from the gws thread.
It's fixed tucked up inside the pod but functional.

Broken Elevator Nearly does it again. Dynam A-10 Elevator needs modification.

Nearly lost my A-10 forever after the elevator broke for the second time. Here is video of the first time it broke a couple of weeks ago. After that crash, I was able to recreate the fuse from all the small chuncks, a bottle of gorilla glue, and a few cans of paint. I thought my elevator repair would be the last but I was so wrong....

Dynam A10 Broken Elevator on Landing ends in Disaster (2 min 30 sec)

Today, after a high altitude loop, the plane went into a violent right roll when i tried to pull up. I tried to baby her back down by gliding with no engine power. I was nearly aligned with my landing zone when I finally lost all elevator and went crashing down. After 4 hours and nearly 4 miles of walking through the woods and dense foliage, here is the aftermath. Plane is beat up but will fly again. I will be modifying the elevator with some plywood to make it a solid piece. I will upload some video of latest crash when I get a chance. Thanks.

Just picked up one of these. Neat plane. My first EDF jet. Lots of experience with multicopters, heli's, my skysurfer, carbon cub, and parkzone wildcat.

A quick question before I glue in the motor pod. I noticed that one of the ESCs had the blue connected to the red, and red connected to blue, I assume in order to reverse the motor. Is this normal for both motors to turn opposite directions?

Or should they both turn the same direction? Thanks guys!

Motors need to spin the same direction so that the fans spin the correct way.

Power it up and check the fans--if they don't blow air out the rear you have a problem Houston!

If yours came with black encased escs (instead of yellow) then they are true 40a units and are good to go on 4s lipos.

This plane has just adequate power on 3s in my opinion. 4s is where it's at. I like 2650mah 4s of 30c or higher.


Have fun!

Yup black ESCs. they must have plugged in the ESCs in reverse on one ESC from the factory. Glad I caught it before gluing everything in...

I'll start with 2650mah 3s as this is my first EDF jet and then maybe migrate to 4s.

Thanks!

Actually 4s may be easier for you--you'll actually have the power on tap for easier take-offs, to get you out of trouble, etc.

You don't have to use full throttle all the time
