Skymaster A-10 1/7 Scale


Just did the test flights on my new A-10. Wow, I love this jet...it flew incredibly welll. Plenty of power..flew at 1/2 throttle most of the flights and it was still a bit too fast for scale. Lands like a trainer...full flaps and 1/4 throttle and it just greases in. Detailed below are the specs:

Weight - 32lbs
Power Plant - 2 TJ Dynamax conversions (128MM), flying on 12S each for a total of 24S
Batteries - 4 GensAce 6S 5300MAH
Flight time: 8+ minutes flying scale, 6 minutes aggressive flying
Gear - Down and Locked electric conversions of the original pneumatic system.
Gyro on nose wheel

Update - June 2013 - video of me flying my A10 at the recent First in Flight jet event. Wilson, NC USA.
