Looks nice, but the pilot is far too big!

Nice looking A-10 but pretty pricey compared to say the Dynam A-10

Will be interesting to see who else will stock this

That's the very 1st thing I would pull out and replace. It seems that all the companies can never get the pilot to the correct scale.

That Pilot defected from the SU-35 Russian airforce
A twin 64 PnP for $280? Wow..... Looks nice though.
The exhaust nozzle I think is more for thrust line. One of the SkyMaster A-10 1:7.75 scale pilots just lost theirs because they're having concerns getting the thrust line right since they didn't have the directional nozzle fixed with the needed pitch up.
What was described as happening was on takeoff the thrust pitched the aircraft forward, since the nacelles are negatively pitched, holding the aircraft to the ground. When the pilot went to abort, the reduction in thrust would allow the model to get airborne. Natural action was to add thrust but that just pushed it into the ground.
For such a large and expensive aircraft I would have thought they would have to instructions on the thrustline.

Max,

After everyone pulled their pilots from the SU, he's jumped ship to the A-10.

Hello, I have ordered one A10, but delivery is planned in this winter. I will hope the A10 have flaps, in the first picture of the first post at my opinion I can see flaps.

If the A10 are there I give a feedback an more pictures.

U.S should be getting them in about a month or less it sounds like...

And from the pics it looks like it will have flaps:

Interesting cuz at 1st it looked like it had flaps but pic 4 you really couldn't tell if it was outlined or actual flaps. Then I saw the other pics with flaps and thought oh maybe unscale split flaps. After looking at the pics again and your pics you can tell it is full functioning flaps.
