    A-10 Thunderbolt II V2 Twin 64mm High Performance EDF Jet - PNP from Freewing - FJ10621P




    Based on the famous close air support A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known as the "Warthog" or "Tank Killer" this is the updated version of the Freewing twin 64mm A-10. Featuring a European theatre camouflage, full-house functionality including flaps and retracts, and updated power systems, this is sure to be a stunner. Typical to Freewing quality, this plane looks amazing and flies rock-steady and fast. The twin 12-blade EDFs produce an amazingly realistic jet engine sound, while giving it plenty of power for high speed maneuvers, and the wing planform allows stable flight at slow speeds.
    Full Functionality Including Flaps

    The Freewing 64mm A-10 V2 now includes fully functioning flaps for additional scale detail while helping promote slower landings and takeoffs.
    European Theatre Camouflage Livery

    Adding to the uniqueness and scale appeal, the A-10 comes with a decisive military green European Theatre camouflage.
    Twin 12 Blade 64mm EDFs

    The twin 12-blade EDFs produce an amazingly realistic jet engine sound, while giving it plenty of power for high speed maneuvers.
    Ordnance Included

    To further along the scale appeal, a full set of ordnance is included right out of the box.
    Electronic Retracts With Simulated Scale Struts

    The electronic retracts include wire struts that are covered with plastic detailing to simulate a closer-to-scale look and feel.
    Updated Pilot for Improved Scale Appearance

    A truer-to-scale sized pilot was added to the V2 A-10 to complete an impressive overall scale profile both for static display and in the air.

        I really like the A-10's I have 4 now, counting this one. I received this one yesterday at 2:30 pm unboxed went over the inst. manual and started working on it. Finished assembly, and did some changes with the wire extension routing. Instead of running the three Y harnesses from the back to the front on top of the battery tray and along side the the battery. I rerouted the Y harnesses underneath the battery tray. This makes battery accessibility much easier. I also had to add a 3" extension to the Elevator connector for easier receiver placement (installed elevator extension to short) The battery strap installed is too short for any of the recommended 4s batteries. I do like the thrust reverse setup already programmed just plug in the thrust reverse connector into channel 7 set it to your desired switch to operate it

          Nice! Post a video of your maiden if you can. I am going to ask if management can look into seeing if Freewing/FlightLine can start offering larger battery straps. Mine broke on the FlightLine B-25 maiden...I was simply trying to get it tight and it barely fit the 6S battery and snapped clean off. Good luck with your maiden!

              Looks intriguing but am a little put off by the landing gear. I understand using wire struts to keep the cost down, not that this is cheap for what you get, but why do these manufacturers insist in making the wheels out of granite? At least there could be some shock-absorbency with the wheels. Actually the optional wheel set on the little 64mm 3 channel Panther were very good, so I know Freewing can make them. I would rather have easily replaceable soft wheels that can last 80 - 100 landings, and throw in a replacement set with the model. Since I fly off a paved runway I
              would need to grease it every time or risk a bone-jarring bounce. Is there a better landing gear that is compatible or are the wheels at least easily replaceable instead of using those impossible c-clips?
              And...what is with the nose gear cover pulling down in flight when it catches the wind the wrong way? Looks ridiculous in the product video. Maybe possibly use a stronger spring?
