Ha! I'm my own worst critic and would never release something that I didn't think was the best I could do :)

With that being said the look is a very important part of the A-10 so I'm gonna do my best to capture it.

Don't mean to be nosey, but where do you find the time to do all this phenomenal scratch design & build? What do you do when you're not building?

So this design is pushing me hard. I'm sorry there hasn't been much updates lately, it's not because I'm not making progress, there are just a lot of little details. So each step/piece is taking a huge amount of thought and tweaking to get right. I've never just sat and stared at a design and just thinking for so long before. There isn't an image on google that I've not analyzed, haha.

Nic no one hear is going to rush you. We understand all great builds take the time to get just perfect. As long as everyone knows it coming along then thats all we need. But also dont kill your self on the build too you dont have to be that dead on lol. The A10 was built for one thing to house one big bad ass gun but designed simple for easy sheet metal feild repairs hence all the simple flat square fuse. So do your best man im sure itll be a great design just dont go crazy with it

I'm sure the community would appreciate a quality A-10 design over a design that happened to be available a week or a day or a month earlier than would have been.

It's a Chinese company called Lanxiang. They mostly make large very detailed scale foamies. Mine is powered by 2x 70mm edf (14 blade XRP edf unit with a 1600Watt 2200kv motor running on 6s, so 3200Watt total). AUW is about 3.6 kg (8lbs) with a 5000Mah 6S battery. The stock one is a bit lighter and has less power. At the moment I'm changing the retractable gear for nice scale looking aluminium ones. The retracts supplied with this model are too weak for grass runways. It flies great. The canopy can even open remotely, it slides backwards a bit and then slowly opens.
