    Ron, that grass that your V1 is on looks very similar to our grass runway.

      Ron, I just noticed that you're a retired ATC. Our club president is also a retired ATC and has some great pilot and airplane stories to tell. I bet you do, too. :-)

        I just caught up on this thread, and wanted to give a true novice input on the FW A-10. I moved from the Apprentice to the HH F4U (easy transition). Saw the FW A-10 and knew that had to be my next plane. I maidened the A-10 very successfully, and followed up with another successful flight and landing before it got too dark! I did install and used the flaps for takeoff and landing. I'm using the Admiral 4S 3600 with a 3 minute timer (which went by way too fast).
        What would be a safe, expected flight time with this battery?
        Great flier (on a DX9), however the aileron roll rate scared the crud out of me the first flight! I was most worried about the landing speed, but with full flaps was not an issue at all.

First was a set of change sun 12 blades with 2800kv outrunners. then I found these awesome fans on ebay that had more thrust and made really nice noises when balanced properly!! It is one of my fave planes now!! Here is a video from this past weekend...

                Hey Goon, I saw on a different thread where you upgraded your landing gear to the 8mm F5's gear. Can you post some pics and describe the setup and install process? I really want to mod mine to some type of shock absorber type.

                  Fellow 64mm A-10 flyers. Do you think the upgrade landing gear for the V2 of the F-16 would work in the 64mm A-10? When my A-10 lands I could sure use a little cushion.

                    it isn't all that hard. Pretty simple in face since the actual retracts just drop right in. The only thing that you need to change are the mains. They need to be rotated and go in backwards. it sounds funny at first but actually works really well. Make a flat spot for the set screw and they are done. Minimal widening and foam removal needed to make them fit in the nacelles on the wing. The nose gear does require a little opening for the nose wheel but super quick with a dremel tool. Here is a video of them finished product.

                      I did some flying this weekend with my A-10. It hasn't seen any airtime in a while!! It needed a new ailerons servo and some TLC. Its back to normal now but will be getting replaced with the bigger 70mm version when it arrives.
