New release: FMS A-10 Thunderbolt II WarthogV2
In 2017, FMS announced its flagship aircraft- the A-10 Thunderbolt II. Known for its impeccable scale features and awesome performance, the Warthogis 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:
1.Improved ESC: The dual 70A ESCs are uprated to dual Hobbywing 80A ESCs, with an external 8A BEC for bulletproof performance.
2.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.
3.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.
4.Improved connectors: soft connector design significantly increases the reliability of the wing quick release system.
5.Increased elevator travel: giving pilots more precision and control authority
6.Improved tires: an improved, more durable compound extends the service life of the landing gear wheels, even in rough field operations.
7.Robust canopy latch: extended pin on the canopy latch reduces the possibility of an accidental canopy release in flight.
8.Enlarged battery bay: now fits two 6S 3300mAh Lipos, for significantly increased flight times!
9.New trim scheme: even more attractive trim than the original!
10.New scale pilot
1.Dual 70mm inrunner 12 bladed EDFs and Hobbywing 80A ESCs provide ample thrust.
2.Highly realistic scale features: Rivets, panel lines, CNC shock absorbing landing gears, removable bombs and rocket pods, scale pilot figure etc.
3.Ultra bright LED light system
4.Electronic retracts with over current protection
5.Large diameter bearings in the landing gear allow the A-10 V2 to roll smoothly over rough terrain
6.Preinstalled ball-linked control horns for accurate and precise movements.
