Key Features

  • Dual 70mm inrunner 12-bladed EDFs and Hobbywing 80A ESCs provide ample thrust.
  • Highly realistic scale features: Rivets, panel lines, CNC shock absorbing landing gears, removable bombs and rocket pods, scale pilot figure etc.
  • Ultra bright LED light system
  • Electronic retracts with over current protection
  • Large diameter bearings in the landing gear allow the A-10 V2 to roll smoothly over rough terrain
  • Preinstalled ball-linked control horns for accurate and precise movements.

Overview

In 2017, FMS announced its flagship aircraft- the A-10 Thunderbolt II. Known for its impeccable scale features and awesome performance, the “Warthog” is truly a favorite amongst pilots and spectators alike. To make the best even better, FMS has dedicated significant engineering effort in building upon the first generation A-10, making evolutionary design and performance improvements to create the A-10 V2.

Retaining features such as the screw-together airframe, ball-linked control surfaces and high strength spar system, the A-10 V2 comes together just as easily its predecessor. Scale details remain impeccable - realistic rivets, panel lines, removable bombs and rockets and realistic absorbing CNC landing gear, just to name a few.

Built upon these great features, the A-10 V2 receives ten major structural, electronic and scale improvements: 

  • Improved ESC: The dual 70A ESCs are uprated to dual Hobbywing 80A ESCs, with an external 8A BEC for bulletproof performance.
  • Upgraded servos: Elevator and Rudder servos have been upgraded to 23g metal geared servos from the original 17g metal geared units- meaning more torque for the control surfaces giving even better performance.
  • Precision landing gear design: The nose landing gear has been redesigned to minimize play- ensuring the assembly tracks straight and true even at high speeds.
  • Improved connectors: ‘soft’ connector design significantly increases the reliability of the wing quick release system.
  • Increased elevator travel: giving pilots more precision and control authority
  • Improved tires: an improved, more durable compound extends the service life of the landing gear wheels, even in rough field operations.
  • Robust canopy latch: extended pin on the canopy latch reduces the possibility of an accidental canopy release in flight.
  • Enlarged battery bay: now fits two 6S 3300mAh Lipos, for significantly increased flight times!
  • New trim scheme: even more attractive trim than the original!
  • New scale pilot

History

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single-seat, twin turbofan engine, straight wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force (USAF). Commonly referred to by its nicknames Warthog or Hog, its official name comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a World War II fighter that was effective at attacking ground targets.
