    Well, I felt it was time to retire my first FRC A-10 (I need the parts for the second one, which has more carbon and other small tweaks).

    But the thought of just tearing apart a plane that still flies and looks so sexy in the air.. just wrong. But spending the day doing slow speed tests, inverted tests, stall tests and then smashing it into the ground? ..Perfect.

    Enjoy.

    Excellent! I love it! The plane is built like a tank! With wings! I was surprised to see it flying so well with all that flex at the end. A death spiral with departing wings would have been a good finish, but then there it potential for power system damage. Really good video, ogharpax!

    Great flight, Jay! It looks great, flies great and sounds awesome with the nacelles making he howling noise. Sorry I forgot to mention the flaps until you were ready to land!

    I think you already said that a couple dozen times! Like I said, Jay designs them, I crash test them!

    Thanks BJ! Did I mention that, had the esc wires not detached I would have crashed a 4th or 5th time? Haha. Oh, and I don't think it's funny making fun of an old guy like me whose eyes can no longer keep orientation on a plane with a dark bottom! As a matter of fact, I think you guys are breaking federal laws by making fun of old guys like me!

  15. have to get a Fed50H opinion!!! I really do like that even after a few crashes it still flew like it was never crashed. better than the 1:1 scale

    Nice flying. Loved the flaps discussion. Priceless.

    I'm ashamed to say my mk2 A10 is only just now ready for paint. Summer has a way of getting in the way of build time. All depron this time, and lightweight polyfill. She looks amazing ;)

    Saw the pics in the other thread. The scratched and dinged nose looks brutal and awesome at the same time :)
