hello , I had general plans, I've been working on drawings for laser cut and , and assembly drawing. Also, I made changes in the connections of parts. I designed the pieces to be interlocking .

Really interesting build here. A-10 is a fun plane to fly. Lots of room for batteries in this bird!

Ive used jet fan 110mm fans and HET motors, yep 120 amp esc. Got 12 s each side, producing 7 kg thrust each at 90 amps.

Its heavy, 15 kg, but flys very well. Used Georges c of g, a tiny bit nose heavy. Not much tho. Also made removable panels on nose, to service rx batts, removable panel over the wing to edge of canopy for flt batt access.

Any questions please ask. This was not a strait forward build, I also modded the wings, so outter panels removable.

Its 85 inch wing, very very cool plane. Any info, just ask. I built this basically without much knowledge of the jets performance ect. So I can steer you in the right direction for success.
But it all worked out well. 100s of hours work.

Wow! Incredible build Cosmo. You did not miss a single detail! The small Skymaster A-10 comes out to nearly the same weight so i say you did well!

Is that an Avonds F-16 in the backround?
