Hobby King Micro A-6 & F-86 Jets

First off I want to Thanks Hobby King for giving me the chance to try this too cool little Micro Jets.

I'm doing this a a double build as they go together so fast I thought I would combine the thread into both planes.

Hobby King A-6 Information.

Specification:
Wingspan: 585mm
Length: 696mm
Flying Weight: 345g
Motor: Powerful brushless Outrunner
ESC: 20A
Servo: 3 x 9g
EDF: 50mm
Battery: 850mah 3S 11.1V 20C (Not included)

Required:
Your own Tx & RX
Battery: 850mah 3S 11.1V 20C



Hobby King F-86 Information.


Specification:
Wingspan: 645mm
Length: 640mm
Flying Weight: 370g
Motor: Powerful brushless Outrunner.
ESC: 20A
Servo: 2 x 8g
EDF: 50mm
Battery: 850mah 3S 11.1V 20C

Required:
Your own Tx & RX

Also included is a 3S lipo battery.

(note the battery for the F-86 will not fit the A-6)

Both planes can be built in less then 1 hour (I used low temp hot Glue)
the A-6 needed a 6" servo extender to reach where the receiver was located
you will need a small philps screwdriver. The esc's both have 2mm bullet connectors
on the esc side I made a jst adapter so I could use all my older packs.

I will post a picture later.

I've been waiting for someone to do the A-6. If it flies well I'll be adding it to my collection.
