Sold
A10 GWS RTF Local Pickup West. Cen. PA

$120 This is a regular flyer. I'd even consider showing in flight, for a prospective buyer who would meet at the local park.
No test flights, of course.
I could consider CONUS shipping, but I think the cost would make it much less appealing at around $140-150. I do not have Paypay however, which is why it's primarily listed as local pick-up. Understand folks leeryness of mo's.
For an idea Look at a LARGE GWS box size from 16127 to your location.
With the assembled tail, it requires a large box.

Details:
Himax 2015-4100 motors
EDF55 fans
Castle P10 ESCs
DonsRc external BEC.
All GWS servos included
GWS Pico receiver (currently ch23 crystal)
Oversized tires making short grass takeoff possible
CF fuse reinforcement
Steerable/removable nosewheel gear driven from aileron servo. This has worked well, and I prefer the steering to be on the aileron channel, as the plane has no rudder function.

Notes: The ESCs are early Castle release, and the software should be updated on a Castle Link, if the external BEC is to be removed. Castle updated the sortware due to a BEC brownout issue, which I had experienced. The ESCs themselves are in working order, and this is a software issue, not defective ESCs. With the external BEC provided, there is no issue. Has been flown on the current setup.

The fans have been installed flush with the front of the nacelles, versus the stock recessed location.

Battery door/compartment in stock location has been resized for 3s-2100 lipos.

You will need (As GWS writes on their boxes ):
Batt (Currently flown with an EVO 3s-1800)
Trans/rec. crystal

How fast would you guess it flew on an 1800mah lipo? How long were your flight times? How much for shipping to 27539?

Thanks

I'm at 16127, so I guess it would be whatever the GWS box size is from there. I'd have to figure that out on the UP Postal site, after determining weight/size/distance.
I've never flown to LVC, but it doesn't require near full throttle to fly. I'd imagine you could get up to 10 min with throttle conservation. I've flown 5 min without ever hitting LVC.

GWS A10 is not fast without massive power. Being an ample batt for the setup, the EVO 3s-1800 provides full power. Larger would not make any improvement.
I don't like to guess speeds, as they are usually far overguessed here. I think there would be some posts where folks have dopplered with the Himax 2015-4100 setup. Those motors were very popular in this plane some years back with the EDF55, when there weren't so many motors/higher power batts on the market.

If you get a chance to measure/weigh the box, shoot me an idea on shipping costs over to Ohio--zip is 43056.


Thanks

If I used the postal site correctly, it said for a 5lb package with dims 34"x7"x15" would be $7.75 priority shipping. I had thought it would be a lot more than that, but maybe it is the shorter 200 mile distance, versus to CA or somewhere far like that.
One effort would be fabbing a box to make the 15" width dimension, as the GWS boxes are 34"x7"x13". The assembled elevator/rudder assembly on the plane requires that width. It would probably have to be made from 2 large GWS boxes, which I do have around here.

That's clear across the state. Around $85 including tolls, plus 12hrs driving. More than the cost of a GWS powered it.
