How to update my A-10 Thunderbolt II

title say it ALL>

I purchase a plane from Nitro the A-10 Thunderbolt II(Camo Version). Can someone tell me what I need to do to get this Flying Brick to takeoff. I haven't done any test flying- afraid it won't even startup.LOL
But can someone that either had one or know of someone that does.

What kind of Mod I need to make it at least Flyable..

I know it not a good plane- but during the Black Friday deal - you couldn't beat the price..

The info on the site for the plane is outdated.. For instance -

mine plane is-

Motor-(2) GL5030 Duct Fan

Speed Controller: 40A speed controller

Battery 10.8 V 650 Mah MH -

well that what my instruction say for the partz. I have to check out the parts to be sure. Not sure on the fan & ESC- unless someone can show me how can I tell.

Different then on Hobbycity- w/0 the Lipoly Battery.

Any help would be helpful. Also step bye step instruction on how to do it- be nice

I would up the battery tremendously. And add 45 a esc with 60 mm fans. I had this plane a couple years ago and booooom into ground. Heavy and balance was off and took a long time to get off the ground. Just purchased the Freewing A-10 THUNDERBOLT II today. Got 2 4000 mah batteries with it I'll let you know how it flies! but first thing I would do is take that 650 milliamp battery and upgraded at least triple if you can that will really help and extend flight time. I would try getting a 2000 milliamp battery pack and go with that first
