$350 if you subtract the rx/tx and their battery. Not too bad considering

Super A10 Arrived

My Super A10 just arrived today. This thing is amazing and lots of parts. It included a 12 channel 2.4 radio. It features the pilot eject with parachute and also came with the smoke pods in addition to everything else. The instruction has plenty of full color photos but not a lot of notes. However, the manual shows more steps that are already completed at the factory. It may require some head-scratching with all of the wiring unless it is all tagged and clearly marked. The brief inspection of everything revealed that is seems to have a nice finish. You can hardly tell it is foam. I guarantee this will be a head turner at any event...even the guys with the $20K jets will look at this one. More to come and hopefully we can get more people in here as we build them and share info.

coat it with WBPU to harden it and protect it from hangar rash.

if you dont want it to be shiny, get the wbpu in a satin finish. and it is good stuff, i use it to seal all the foam on my jets before i use spray paint on them, even enamel.

Lack of A-10 wiring information

Does any one have a wiring diagram for the hobbylobby A-10. I am ready to assemble, but having a wiring would make things a lot easier. my unit is also missing a receiver so i have to start from scratch.

Herman,

It seems pretty straight forward according to the assembly manual. I don't think your A-10 comes with a receiver (receiver ready), unless you bought a plug and play. Its discontinued from Hobby Lobby, but the instruction manual is still online.

Hi Mark
Found the receiver inside the transmiter bag. Have checked out all the normal wiring , but have questions on the cockpit and canopy and the circut board connected to the batery leads comming off the motor pods. Please give me the location of the instruction
manual that might contain the information J need.
Thanks
Herman

BH has a flight review video and there's also another one on youtube that's much more indepth. can't remember what company put that one up, but it's the exact same plane. it flies awesome from what I've seen though.
