Hope you're able to get your plane back from the swamp, Cordwood. At least you got some flying time on it! When i do get outside, im having to avoid all the cactus growing here. Man, those things are rough on a foamie! Still on a quest to upgrade &snapped a few pics of the contraptions i made to ever so carefully remove the existing brushed motors/fans. BTW, ive seen a lot of good ideas in the thread to remove the fans from motor, but dude, mine werereally on there!!! Even covered the engine nacelles with paper towels to protect the paint & still ended up with a few scuffs to be touched up. Another BTW, saw somewhere on eBay an adapter(sleeve)kit with aluminun extention to fit brushless 2.3 or 3mm motor output shafts. If i recall,extention secures to the brushless output shaft by set screws & comes with a newfan too.
Oh well, while A-10 is grounded, its to windy (for me) outside to fly, anyway.

I read your comment about center of gravity for this aircraft. I am concerned with the initial position of the center of gravity due to the pusher configeration and high thrust line. Could you give me an idea of the inital center of gravity you used and about how much elevator displacement you used. Any help you cn provide would be greatly appreciated.

I tried to work it out the CG mathematically and with graphs, I cant guarantee what i say is accurate but may give you a starting point
I calculated the CG to be about 1"- 5/8" to 1-3/4" back from leading edge at wing root

as to elevator i read somewhere that one should Move the control horn to the innermost hole on the elevator servo horn, and the outermost one on the horn on the elevator, but i havnt buiilt my plane yet so cannot guarantee any of this

perhaps someone else has another opinion

good luck

My last previous post in this thread was on page 25!

My Guanli A-10 with brushed motors has been collecting dust since the end of 2008. I decided to try and fly it today.

All stock, except for a 1450 mAh 3S lipo. And the batteries in the 72Mhz transmitter had leaked and so I threw it in the trash and installed an OrangeRx receiver on 2.4Ghz into the model.

I fly at Apollo XI field in Los Angeles and it has a long runway.

Well the plane that is not supposed to fly, does.

It was marginal, yes. Slow climb out, I got it up to about 50' and made one circuit of the pattern and then came in for a landing. I did not want to push my luck and go fetch it in the bramble bushes if the motors siezed up. [X(]

But I just wanted to pop in and say that "yes, the stock brushed motor version can indeed fly under its own power."

My A-10 flys like a trainer, looks cool in the air, and lands gently. It doesn't eat batteries either. I like it.
