Skymaster A-10
Hmmmmm. Just saw a new A-10 link on Skymaster's site:


This should be an interesting release! Release Time: Mid-2010

RE: Skymaster A-10
cool aircraft! how does the rudders operate without touching the elevator? It seems like the rudders would touch the elevator when they move inboard.

RE: Skymaster A-10
Not enough throw for that to become a factor.

RE: Skymaster A-10
Rudders don't hit elevators. Check video of my MIBO on RCU or on youtube under A-10 47th FS. The Skymaster will be interesting to see what comes with it and how much!

RE: Skymaster A-10
Ah.... that makes perfect sense.......I dont mean to start anything but is anyone else finding it kind of interesting that Skymaster plans a large a-10 right after providing the cockpit for Mibo?

RE: Skymaster A-10
If anything, they're probably going to give MIBO a run for their money in terms of quality/cost. From what I've seen, the MIBO A-10 is a very nice kit...well thought out and constructed. If Skymaster pulls off something similar in scale or better for a lower cost...and adds in some functioning decelerons perhaps (split ailerons)...wow! :D On top of that, think ARF...mmmmmmmmmm...could be a very attractive plane to a lot of people!

RE: Skymaster A-10
They state Live hinging .....the full size is different and that is what is so nice about its control surfaces.

The Mibo is very scale .

Bring on the Hog. Only issue is the lack of different paint schemes. Green European camo or the multitude or grey camo as below.

I did toss in what the USAF was playing with for awhile back in the 90's something a bit different.

Wont stop me from probably looking real hard at getting one

Hey Dave, yea was thinking the snow scheme myself. Would be easier to see in the air than the flipper with the addition of the green.

Just got done making Daniel one for his room. Ready to start making a big one for myself.

Bring on the Hog.

In another thread Roger Shipley stated the MIBO cockpit is not provided by Skymaster.
