    Thanks for all the hard work we have made several of your planes and hope to launch the A-10 next week is we can get a break from good old MN winter. A10.JPG

    Newt,
    I have been looking for a cameo paint scheme for the Guppy and I think your find IS IT!
    Love that.

    This may be repeating myself but I've redone the canopy with a template darren posted. Awesome darren, thanks! I used laminate plastic sheeting we use for presentations at work. The canopy frame is made from Duck tape sheeting. Looks way more scale than my pop bottle canopy although Cap'n crunch is maybe a bit too big!

    Cheers,

    What a nice walk around, Phoenix! As they say, good things take time, and this looks good! We appreciate the time yo took to build the A10 and record this video. Good luck with the maiden! When will you fly it?

    Thanks Greg. Not sure when I will get a chance to fly it. Hopefully soon. I'll post the video when I do.

    I had my plans drawn and not until the middle of the build, did I realize it was 20% over sized! So, I over sized the motor (450w. 2350kV). Am I in trouble? Also, I can't find any decals that would suit his warbird.

    I downloaded the plans, and half into the build, I found that the plans were 20% oversized. I decided to use a 450w 2350kV motor for power with the appropriate ESC changes. Am I on a losing course, or can I get this 49" A10 flying? Also, where can I get those neat decals?

    That would put it in the same size range as the mk2! You should do OK if your thrust is good enough. My decals were just drawn on paper with magic marker and glued to the plane.

    Almost finished with my FRCfoamies A-10 Hybrid. Had nacelles left over from my A-10 MKII crash and used them on this original A-10 for the fun of it. A-10 Hybrid_2.jpg
