Gws A-10

This one is all ready to fly.

ELE EBM900 4600Kv motors
Dynam 18A ESCs
TP 3S 2100
26oz AUW
AR6100 rx

I'm getting about 22oz of thrust. I had to do some mods to get my battery in there. I got the idea from this thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=787006

I added a bunch of fuse reinforcements in the rear, the nacelle pylons, and just behind the battery bay. I just used bamboo kabob skewers. I didn't want to risk using carbon fiber with my 2.4GHz rx.

did you know that the real A-10 "wart hog" can still fly with one motor half a tale section and 2/3 of a wing torn off. and the front tail wheel is off set for so the gun can be longer and the pilot sit in basicly a titaum bath tub

Yeah, I've heard that. It's a very well designed plane. Its excellent at carrying a lot of weight too.
