After a few months of testing and modifying and repeating, and after getting a hard time from guys in the other thread (!), Jay and I are confident that we have a real stable, aerobatic and above all "cool" plane to offer as a free download:
The FRC A10 Warthog!
As we discussed in the preview thread, this is a hard plane to set up, but if you follow the cg mark, power system recommendations and motor angle on the plans plans precisely, you will quickly fall in love with it. It may be an advanced build, but it certainly flies lke a beginner plane. In fact, it reminds me a lot of my excellent Hawk Sky with chopped wings and MJv3. Fast and maneuverable. The A10 is so stable that, once trimmed in, you will notice it is capable of some real hands off flying! If that doesn't work out for you then...we built it tough- double thick wings and tail that incorporate 4mmx2mm cf tubes. I'm using 2 aileron servos (so that flaperons are an option) and one elevator servo. It's possible to work out a single aileron servo if necessary. Rudders will be tough on this, so we don't recommend it. And, this takes 2 sheets of depron. Over the next few nights I will be adding build pictures of my A10 to help assembly.
