    Absolutely, they did great, I doubt though I'll have them by the weekend since Independence Day is tomorrow. But it's all good, another thing I'm having to watch is on my takeoff rotation with this one. It really wants to rip off the ground fast and in my opinion too high an angle, I was really lucky I didnt stall the thing right off the bat. So yeah I'm gonna keep working on that in my head until i get the escs and i can put her on the field again.

      Also did a small mod to fix what I think was the cause of the steering slop although mine didnt show any, I took and made a support piece for the pushrod to slide though so it doesn't fold out and cause the wheel to turn uncontrolled. So far it's good and solid

        Here's what I did and it locks down the push rod and keeps it straight

            It works really well. Just was also thinking about cutting some CF rods to stiffen up the nose on the fuse as well. Just need to figure out how long to cut the rods for it.

                I did add a Castle Creations BEC to bypass the internal one in the esc. I want all the safety nets I can have with this one.

                        Have to laugh at my luck, soon as I get mine, they announce a V2 coming in November

                          That is interesting (and funny). Did they indicate what will be new and improved?

                            Yes, it is fixed, we will show all the modification photos when it is ready. We will make a better A-10. ESC will be changed to 80A Hobbywing. Servos will be changed to 13g and 23g, all metal gear. wing Plug will be upgraded to a new one for easier and faster assembly. Of cause all the other issues will be fixed. I am thinking to change the color scheme but I need more information from you if it is worth to change or not. Also the steering system.

                              I'm waiting to see if they will stiffen up the forward fuselage since V1 needed it second hand with a couple of CF rods

                                I didn't realize there was that much that needed "fixing". The only things I've heard from current owners I know, is "more power, stronger retracts/gear".

                                  Yeah there were a few things in there, some things I thought were alittle unnecessary but others were wanting them
