What?! A-10s are suppost to be able to fly on one engine!



Anyways, that is a very NICE model. I'd love to see it in action! Enough pictures, lets see some video footage already!

well the plane was in a severe crash due to one engine flaming out! Mr. Richard Guidroz rebuilt it with one engine and it fly's nicely. I'll get some pictures up soon
Sorry to hear about the crash [], how much bamage and was it easy to repair?
And a bit of video would be very good.

Is anyone interested in a kit that has the wing built? I bought the plastics and almost everything to build the plane. Engines, wood,hardware, plastics,props etc...
I just lost interest....
Let me know

Glad to see this thread moving again this is my Keith Sparks A-10 that went into a spiral deathroll when one of the two engines kept Flaming out. The front of the plane all the way up to the wing was destroyed after the 2nd or 3rd flight, so Mr. Richard Guidroz said give that thing and a good .61 and I am sticking that thing in the nose! Well it flies nicely and it's very reliable.

Hi I thought noboby built this plane but me, cool project and very easy plane to fly I guess the wing does all the work for the pilot, any way I built this plane some 4/5years ago the plane turned out beutiful and flu great until one of the engines went out and I panic and then.... R.I.P, I was sad for about 2 weeks then I bought another twin and I still have it, anyway I'm thinking on bulding another one but this time I'm planning on doing some mega changes on to the plans, same sport look alike but easier to build, but this time i like to use electric fans or props anyone has an idea on what to use?

Hey man that single engine in the nose its not a bad idea in fact I'm going to go with that...........jeeez I never considered that option, but for an sport look a like its the best way, cheap and headache free. ok I'm going to get my plans out of the tube........[sm=spinnyeyes.gif][sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

I still have my A-10, and it attracts an audience every time I bring it out. I think the ST 61 would work nicely.
