Yes... It was pretty heavy on the front and we really needed to fly her in and touch down soft to prevent that..

We keep about 3 or 4 of those nose gears "in stock" because they break at the drop of a hat.

Also Banana Hobby . BTW, HK has a US Warehouse They call them the Funfighters Series. Stock level is no where near the International Site. Kind of hit or miss.

Probably only for a minute or two ... only until management notices and gives me the boot.

Anyone know where to find the jpower mini a-10 5mm in kit form?
Been all over and it's either popular or china isn't making enough?

Anyone own or flown this? How about another manufacturer?

Dagger (or any others interested) , I have the original one that I powered with a pair of Dons Wicked/Wemo combos, sent to me by The Don (THANKS again Don!). There are photos and a video around here somewhere? Either in this thread, the other thread or my blog. I am going to migrate those power systems into other EDFs. The nose is a little dented on this A10 but it is pretty much ok other than that. It s small enough to ship. If you are interested in it, with servos and retracts, email me at Jon-at-hdflyer-dot-com and we can figure something out. My PM function appears to be disabled here.

The latest in this 50mm product line, received from Nick over at HobbyB.com



He also sells the bare airframes (includes the canopy), which should be perfect for a little experimentation. Dons Wicked or AEORC ... which should I try first?
