Banana Hobby 70mm Twin A-10

Since I've taken so many pictures, I'll post them here! This is the new 70mm Twin A-10 coming soon to Banana Hobby and it is freakin awesome!

The aircraft was not flown at the Big Jolt event but should be in the air soon. Pete literally built it the day before the event. I'll let him give you guys more info when he gets on here.

I'm a Big Hawg fan so this aircraft got a lot of my attention. I took plenty of photos. Each day I would load and unload it from the truck. It was my baby!

Here's the first batch of images!

Best,
Tony

Wow!! There are some really elaborate Foam EDFs coming out these days!! If I can issue one nitpick right off the bat: I think some grey servo covers would go a long way though.

Lookig forward to the flight video, Pete!!

Pete needs to hurry up and get these ASAP! I don't care what I gotta sell; I am buying this one. I hope we can pre-order it. And I hope I can get airframe only.

I will prob disable some features. That is just my preference.

Tony,
WOW, it is big and beautiful!! How tall is Evelyn? My boys like me to compare height of people in the photos to themselves.

Do you know any other scheme's it will come in?

Thanks!

swps- I like your YF-23 Avatar!

Evelyn is probably 4' 10". I remember one scheme was desert but I can't recall if the other was green. I can only hope. I supported Euro Green A-10's in England during the early 90's. I follow up with Pete.

Best,
Tony

Brent-This Hawg is one BIG foamy! I carried it multiple times throughout the weekend and it's size is impressive. Evelyn had all to do to hold it still for the pictures. She loves taking pictures with these planes but some of them are a little heavy for her, not to mention..some are samples, lots of care is taken not to damage them.

I hear ya on the struts and tires. I will not be flying mine off the lakebed!

Best,
Tony

My boys just went nuts!! My 9 year old is 4' 11 1/2" and my 7 year old is 4' 8" and they want me to get this plane, especially after seeing her hold it! I've also got a 5' 6" 11 year old boy and a 4" 5 year old boy, so I can do all sorts of comparisons! They can relate to holding the large planes, but I don't have one this big....yet!

I really hope it comes in Green!! Always been my favorite color scheme. My wife talked me into the desert camo on the 50" one and I still wish I would have gone green. Not that I'm complaining, it looks fantastic in the air and is one of my favorite planes to fly.

I love the YF-23, boy did I want that plane to win out on the ATF competition. Boy was that a long time ago. I really wish there was a good foamy out there of it, but all the threads I've read on the custom built ones, it sounds like a handful. So, until someone get's one out, it's just sitting on my list of airframes I'll buy in a heart beat if someone will release them.

It probably uses the same setup as the mig and f22 so yes it will be a 6cell setup.

And do you think the wings will be able to be taken off during transport becuase that thing has a huge wingspan.
