New Dynam A-10 Thunderbolt II Twin 64mm EDF Jet with Retracts 2.4G RC 5 Channel Ready

The Dynam A-10 Thunderbolt II also known as "The Warthog" is an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft designed to provide close air support of ground forces. The A-10 earned its reputation as the "Tank Buster" with its assortment of lethal air to ground armaments effectively annihilation enemy ground forces and reinforcements. It was the first USAF aircraft designed exclusively for close air support.

The Dynam A-10 has been an awesome flying machine in the Dynam Fleet. Dynam decided to upgrade this bird with servo-less retracts. The A-10 has superb maneuverability even at low speeds and altitude, this is due to its large wing area, high wing aspect ratio, and large ailerons. This design also enables short takeoffs and landings, allowing it to operate from the smallest and most basic airfields. This model gets power from two 64mm electric ducted fan units and comes 90% Ready To Fly. All Servos, motors, receiver, and other electronics are preinstalled from factory. Like all the planes in the Dynam range, the Dynam A-10 is constructed of quality EPO foam and finished to a high standard that represents an excellent replica of the real aircraft.

This ready to fly version comes with a Dynam 2.4ghz radio system and a 11.1v 2200mah 25c Li-Po battery. Twin 40A electronics speed controllers provide power to the twin 64mm 3300kv ducted fan units. You will need to complete assembly of the plane to get this plane ready for flight.

Specifications:
Wing span: 1080mm
Total Length:995mm
Flying weight: 1000g
Construction: EPO
Servo:9g
Battery:11.1V 2200mAh 25C Li-Po

Throttle Connections

I just bought one of these new A-10's about a month ago and am just now getting around to unpacking it and looking over the pieces and instructions. The version I bought did not come with a Tx/Rx. Looking over the parts, I see there are two 40amp ESC's. Each ESC has a cable with a label marked THR and a short cable extension with some kind of little IC board(???).

I understand that a Y-cable will be needed to connect the two separate throttle cables to the receiver. My question is...

With two power leads coming from the two separate ESC's won't that overload the voltage to my receiver? Do I need to cut the red wire on one of the leads??

I connected the two ESC wires with the little IC boards to a Y-cord and connected the Y-cord to my Spektrum AR6200 receiver. This causes the LED's in both receivers to flash indicating some kind of error condition. Probably too high a voltage, as I suspected.

When I remove the two little cords with the IC boards and connect the ESC wires to a Y-cord with the red wires cut and supply separate power from a battery pack everything works normally (solid LED's).

This can't be how this is supposed to work???

As near as I can tell, the nose wheel is 33mm and the mains are 42mm. Hard to measure curved surfaces without calipers, but that should be pretty close.

That probably means that the throttle channel needs to be reversed. Then ensure that the throttle trim is all the way in the down position. Once you've done that, you'll need to power up the ESC's with the throttle stick in high position (the ESC's should not arm themselves at this point and should be beeping). Then move stick to the low throttle position within 2 or 3 seconds. The ESC's should arm at that point and sound the normal arming tones.

Figured it out...That was part of the problem. My new OrangeRX module for my Turnigy 9x needs to be programmed to have throttle at throttle...right now it's elevator and the jet almost took off in my house!

Went out yesterday for a maiden...didn't go as planned...took a quick nose dive...I think the battery was the issue ..it was too nose heavy ..I had a 3S 3700..think it might be best to step down next try

Any tips on CG or first take off etc?
